Destiny 2 is closing in on its next big expansion with the Destiny 2: Witch Queen releasing on February 22nd, 2022. And with a new expansion there are a lot of changes coming which we know of so far. These changes do Include the fact that seasonal content of the year will be leaving after staying for an year. This includes the content form all the four Beyond Light seasons namely Season of the Hunt, Season of the Chosen, Season of Splicer, and Season of the Lost.
These will be presumably harder to get just like the world pool guns once the Banshee Telemetry is remove. For keeping the best rolls on those guns I would recommend checking our Guide for it.
These weapons are available with their Respective Activities and can also be focused with Umbral Engrams in the Helm. Most of them can also drop with double perks (except for Season of the Hunt weapons).
This article is going to be a guide to what are the best guns to keep along with the best rolls on them. This will be mainly a guide about the last two perks of the guns and not the barrel/Mag perks (with a few exceptions).
These guns will be given bellow with respect to their Seasons:

Threaded Needle is Linear fusion Rifle and is one of the best options for DPS in the Present Season mainly due to the particle deconstruction mod. But by Destiny 2: Witch Queen it won’t be there still with LFR buffs it can be still very viable.
Clown Cartridge and Vorpal/Frenzy (PvE)
Rapid Hot and Frenzy/Vorpal (PvE)

Code Duello is a pretty damn good with Solar Rocket launcher and I would recommend keeping one for DPS or just for fun. It has some pretty good rolls.
Impulse Amplifier and Lasting Impression/Frenzy (Impact casing in the Second Column preferably) (PvE)
Auto-Loading and Lasting Impression/Frenzy (PvE)
Season of the Splicer Weapons
Season of the Splicer just like Season of the Chosen in that it has some really good guns to hunt for. Some of the best gun in Destiny 2, If you ask me. They are available in the Seasonal Activities and to focus in terms of Umbral Engrams in the H.E.L.M.
Chroma rush (Kinetic)
Chroma Rush is a 720RPM is Kinetic Auto-rifle and is one of the best guns in both PvP and PvE. And with Auto rifles being anti Overload champions mods with Destiny 2: Witch Queen. This is a very sought after weapon.
Feeding Frenzy and Kill Clip/Rampage (PvE)
Subsistence and Kill Clip/Rampage (PvE)
Heating Up/Tunnel Vision and Kill Clip (PvP)

Ignition Code is one of the few Kinetic Grenade launchers and like with any special ammo GL blinding Nades is really damn good on it in the second perk slot.

Sojourner’s Tale is pretty good solar Slug shotgun which is more PvP oriented, in my opinion.
Quickdraw and Opening Shot (PvP)
Shattered Cipher (Heavy)
Shattered Cipher is a 900RPM Void Machine Gun which is pretty good in most normal activities.
Heating up and Rampage
Season of the Lost Weapons
Season of the Lost weapons are the easiest to farm for now as it is the present active season in Destiny 2. They drop from their Actives, Umbral Engrams (Which can drop double perks) and randomly in playlist activities. Even though I do not think that are as good as the weapons from previous two seasons of Destiny 2, they are still pretty good all around. This is the season which introduced Stasis weapons so there are some interesting perks on it.
Vulpecula is 180RPM Stasis Hand Cannon. It is a fine gun overall and one the few guns which can roll with the headstone stasis perk.
Shoot to Loot/Outlaw and Headstone (PvE)
Killing Wind and Explosive Payload/ Multi-kill Clip (PvP)
Fractethyst is a kinetic Stasis aggressive shotgun. It is pretty good and Reliable in PvP.
Quickdraw and Opening Shot (PvP)
Chrysura Melo (Energy)
Chrysura Melo is a solar 360RPM Auto-rifle and is a reliable gun to use in PvE especially in case of solar shields.
Fourth Horseman and Frenzy/Multi-Kill Clip (PvE)
Heating up and Frenzy/Multi-Kill Clip (PvE)
Wolftone Draw (Energy)
Wolftone Draw is a arc bow which is really good in end game PvE activities with its perks. And with Anti Barrier mods in Destiny 2: Witch Queen I would recommend keeping a good one around.
Impulse Amplifier and Harmony/Frenzy (PvE)
Archers Tempo and Harmony/Frenzy (PvE)
Iota Draconis (Energy)
Iota Draconis is a Solar Energy Fusion rifle which is kind of bad. And it is due to it being High Impact, has a 1000RPM charge time which is way too long to really have it to be useful in PvP. So it is only really useful in normal PvE activities, in my opinion.
Lead from Gold and Frenzy/Harmony (PvE)
Canis Major (Heavy)
Canis Major is a Solar Heavy Grenade Launcher which is pretty fun but like any heavy GLs, it is not ideal in endgame activities.
Clown Cartridge/ Impulse Amplifier and Chain Reaction
Unlike Gunsmith/World Loot pool guns the seasonal weapons are comparatively really easy to farm god rolls. So I would recommend getting the god rolls of these guns before they cannot be target farmed by Destiny 2: Witch Queen.
So I hope, while farming the guns, the RNG be in your favor, Guardian.
