For a fun look at which guns people are using the most in Destiny, Bungie Chief Resident Researcher Dr. Bunson Honeydew compiled all the data to give us a look at the top 10 most used weapons over the last 14 days.

Before we get to the results though, here’s a quick note about the data:

Weapon use in Destiny is pretty diverse and follows a very fat ‘long tail’ distribution.  The guns on these lists are indeed awesome but a lot of players are finding that other, more obscure weapons better fit their tactical needs or their personal play styles. Besides, punching all of the aliens in the face is obviously the correct way to play Destiny anyway.

First up, here’s the top 10 most used weapons for Guardians Level 20 and above across all activity types:

They also took a look at the most used primary weapons for players of all levels, with all those new holiday ‘Kinderguardians’ moving more towards the “battered and worn” weapons as they start their adventure:

  1. Vision of Confluence
  2. Khvostov 7G-02
  3. Cydonia-AR3
  4. The Stranger’s Rifle
  5. Marshal-A
  6. Suros Regime
  7. Atheon’s Epilogue
  8. Shingen-E
  9. Galahad-E

And here’s the top 10 Crucible primary Weapons:

  1. SUROS Regime
  2. Vex Mythoclast
  3. Thorn
  4. Atheon’s epilogue
  5. Shingen-E
  6. Cydonia-AR3
  7. The Last Word
  8. Galahad-E
  9. Up For Anything
  10. The Stranger’s Rifle

Meanwhile, Bungie handed out free Legendary gifts to players earlier this week, and they talked about the “small token of holiday gratitude” in their Weekly Update:

For a good portion of you, the gift you received will truly be Legendary – a weaponized memento to guide you through some of Destiny’s most challenging moments. For others, our gift has already been summarily dismissed, dismantled, and delivered straight into the dust bin of history.

Whatever category you fall into, we hope you appreciate the gesture. They say it’s the thought that counts. Either way, whether you feel empowered or slighted, whether you believe you received a thoughtful gift or were unceremoniously slapped across the face with a sooty lump of coal, we hope you had a wonderful holiday break, and enjoyed playing Destiny with friends and family as much as we did.

What’s your weapon of choice in Destiny?
