Players can boost the performance of the grenade launcher upon progressing through the games.

The Wave frame releases a high energy upon the ground contact.

Thankfully, it can generate 1810 power, which is 20 more than the required power to take the raid.

Further, the weapon can produce a radius of 100, 74 velocity and 27 stability while tracking the enemy.

Moreover, its reload time is just 2.2 seconds and aim assistance is also pretty good.

If Players are unsatisfied with using Forbearance, they can opt for Witherhoard and Lingering Dread.

2. Thunderlord

The unbeatable machine gun offers players a high range of ammunition capacity in the battle.

It can deploy over 450 rounds per minute and has  1810 power generation. 

The Thunderlord generates reign havoc, stunning lightning strikes from above, and is an excellent weapon against powerful bosses.

Moreover, the machine gun’s aim assistance is unmatchable/

Thankfully, it also offers pretty good handling and stability.

However, the long rage battle could be problematic due to its compact range.

 The machine gun can provide a significant advantage if many enemies attack the players together.

Other options are also available if players do not like the Thunderlord machine gun.

Fixed Odds, Retfrofit Escapade and Commemoration could be beneficial in the Crota’s End Mode.

3. Osteo Striga

Osteo Striga is probably the deadliest gun in the short-range battle.

The sub-machine gun has a 100 range and produces 600 rounds per minute.

It deploys toxic ammunition by tracking the enemies, thanks to its intrinsic trait of screaming swarm.

The gun is works best for any sub-class and combined with any long-range weapons in the game.

 Players also have many other options regarding SMG’s in the game.

Calus Mini-Tool Ikelos and the Funnel-web can be great solar arc and void counterparts.

4. Sunshot 

Another weapon that can be crucial in the contest mode is the Sunshot.

The hand cannon recently received a huge buff and is excellent against the red bars.

It offers explosive damage and can destroy the highlighted targets.

The Sunshot produces 1200 damage and 150 rounds per minute, thanks to its 12 ammo magazines.

It also offers a pretty good range and stability in long-range fights. 

Further, Sunshot’s Reload Direction is 100; however, its reload speed is limited to 72.

5. Tracton Cannon

The traction Cannon is a significant DPS weapon that produces over 1800 power.

The weapon can penetrate powerful enemies and suppress their abilities.

Moreover, it will assist the players by deploying vulnerability to the enemies from all sorts of damage.

Being a shotgun, its range limit is obviously low, but it can fire up to 90 shots per minute.

Other debuff and support weapons that can guide players to victory can be Gjahhahorn as well.

6. Apex Predator

The rocket launchers are probably the best choice for the Crota’s End Contest Mode.

The Apex Predator is quite reliable when attacking a potent enemy in the battle.

The launcher produces up to 20 rounds in a single minute and has the potential for destructive damage.

Players can also opt for other rocket launchers, including Cold Comfort, the Hothead and Blowout.
