All Origin traits and available weapons - Destiny 2

Discover all the Origin traits in Destiny 2 and which weapons come with what Origin traits.


Origin traits are a fairly new addition to weapons in Destiny 2. These traits are specific to certain weapons from various foundries, activities, and seasons. Sometimes mods will enhance the capabilities of certain Origin traits, which is why it’s helpful to know what the trait does and which weapons it appears on.

All Origin traits and available weapons

Introduced with The Witch Queen expansion, Origin traits are a set of perks that are guaranteed to drop on specific weapons. For example, any Nightfall-specific weapon will always have the Stunning Recovery Origin trait. Use the following table to see the name of each Origin trait, what weapons get it, and its effect. Some weapons will come with multiple Origin perks, this happens when they drop from a specific playlist but are also part of a weapon foundry.
