The Europa set of weapons are new in Beyond Light and there are some real gems in there. There’s variety including an auto rifle, machine gun and a new combat bow plus many more. Today I’m going to go through the best Europa weapons plus the god rolls to farm in Beyond Light.
The Europa set of weapons are pretty easy to get hold of, run through the campaign or do missions from Variks to get them. However, which ones should you get and then chase for specific rolls and which ones should you ignore? Today I am going to help with that question by ranking them all and letting you know about specifically curated rolls and PVE/PVP rolls too. Let me know down in the comments your favourite Europa weapon, and which roll have you got in your loadout?
Let’s have a look at the weapons in a little more detail.

The curated roll comes wih Ambitious Assassin which overflows the maagzine based on the number of rapid kills before reloading and Demolitionist where kills with this weapon generate grenade energy. It also comes with Impact Casing for an increase in damage on hits and Hard Launch which increases projectile speed, decreases stability and slightly decreases blast radius.

Energy weapons regenerate ammo on hit when matching the damage type to the combatant’s shield.
For PVP Killing Wind and Elemental Capacitor would be a good roll and for PVE Outlaw and Vorpal Weapon would be good. This one can also roll with Thresh, and that’s included in the most popular roll out there at the moment as it’s Killing Wind and Thresh. Thresh is great because you get a small amount of super energy on kills.
In terms of getting these weapons you can get Bonechiller, Biting Winds, Hailing Confusion and Subzero Salvo through the Beyond Light campaign. The others can be acquired through Empire Hunts and the targetted weapon missions from Variks. Once you open up Europan Explorer I you’ll have access to repeatable missions. Also, roam around Europa and look out for High Value Targets and once you kill them you’ll get Europa weapons to drop.
