Season of the risen is finally here, and with this new season, Bungie has brought us some exotics new weapons. Bungie has also introduced the crafting system for players. So now, getting the god rolls in these weapons is easier than ever with the help of crafting.

Destiny 2 finally released the Witch Queen update, and with this new DLC, they also released a brand new season called Season of the Risen. Along with this new season came intrinsic perks with all-new weapons. The intrinsic perk for Season of the Risen is Land Tank, providing the guardian stacking resistance buffs for every final blow. A very powerful perk on certain weapons, Land Tank, will definitely be useful on closer range weapons but fall flat on snipers.

Even though the base Destiny 2 experience is free-to-play, Bungie sometimes releases new expansion packs for players to buy. Usually, these expansions introduce new contents for players to grind and develop the ongoing storyline of the universe.

Players have been waiting for weapon crafting features for a while. Following strong feedback from the playerbase, Bungie has finally introduced the weapon crafting system. Now, players will be able to craft a series of weapons. However, some weapons will remain random roll only, but players will be able to select specific Rolls and personalize their weapons for years to come. Bungie will continue to add to the system each season, adding more and more weapons to craft and level up.
