Destiny 2 – One-Two Punch Perk, explained and guns list

Give 'em the ol' one-two.

With the addition of weapon crafting in Destiny 2, Guardians no longer need to chase down certain god rolls. Instead, after collecting enough copies of a certain gun, they can craft one and level it up to unlock the perks they're after. It's a different kind of grind that ultimately rewards Guardians with a custom weapon all their own. Some weapons, shotguns in particular, are highly sought after because of the One-Two Punch Perk.

How does the One-Two Punch Perk work in Destiny 2?

One-Two Punch is a Basic and Enhanced Trait available on curated rolls for select shotguns. Community Research has revealed the following effects if all 12 pellets hit (basic One-Two Punch). Note that the Enhanced Trait reduces the number of required pellets from 12 to 10.

  • 200% increased melee damage for 1.22 seconds
  • 350% increased melee damage against bosses and vehicles
  • 80% increased melee damage if combined with Liar's Handshake

  1. Matador 64 has OTP as well.

    1. That it does! Good catch! I must have blocked it out of my mind due to how much it wrecked me in Destiny 1.
