Everybody loves a good submachine gun. They’re quick and compact and allow you to mow down enemies while staying on the move.

Submachine guns in Destiny 2 are no different and there’s plenty of them to choose from, albeit a lot less than a few years ago before a number of weapons got “sunset” and are no longer usable in many of the game’s activities.

SMGs in Destiny 2 can be found in either the Kinetic or Energy slots. They have a wide array of usages and wild perks, especially when it comes to the Exotic ones. And there are some that completely dominate in PvP as well.

Here are some of the best submachine guns in Destiny 2 right now.
