If you're currently hooked on the Moon weapon hunt in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, then you're probably in the same boat that we are: trying to get your paws on every single new weapon that the game is throwing at us for the lunar offensive. Guardians are definitely staying busy trying to get perfect rolls on some of these, but if all of the above has been a load of gibberish to you then don't worry. We'll give you a quick primer on the Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Moon weapons list and what the basic requirements are to get them.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Moon Weapons List

So, you're very quickly going to become best friends in Destiny 2  Shadowkeep with the Lectern of Enchantment. You don't have to go out of your way to access the powers of the Lectern; Eris Morn will hand you a quest as part of Shadowkeep's main campaign.

While almost all of the new weapons in the expansion can be looted from an emey, from exploring Lost Sectors or picking up other quests, the Lectern of Enchantment is going to give you a chance to create a Moon weapon that you're actually happy with - fulfil each weapon's quest requirements and as long as you have the necessary materials, you can keep rolling until you're satisfied with what it spits out.
