Adept Weapons are special variants of weapons in Destiny 2. They feature unique Adept Mod slots, bonus perk options, and unique shaders. Furthermore, they grant additional stat buffs when Masterworked. Adept Weapons are not necessarily stronger than their default versions, and a god roll of a non-Adept weapon with good perks may trump an Adept Weapon with a decent roll. However, the bonus stats that can be achieved on an Adept Weapon makes them worth the grind.

Destiny 2 - All Adept Weapons and how to get them

Adept Weapons can be acquired in Destiny 2 by completing Master Raids in the Vault of Glass, or Vow of Disciple. Players can also obtain Adept Weapons by completing Grandmaster Nightfalls or achieving a Flawless run in Trials of Osiris. These are high-level end-game raids, and are usually quite difficult to complete. It is also worth noting that the Adept Weapons that drop from each raid are subject to change with weekly rotations. The following are all the drop sources for Adept Weapons in Destiny 2.
