Best Scout Rifles In Destiny 2

Destiny 2 Scout Rifles are in quite a weird place. Sometimes they are good in both PvE and PvP and vice versa. The problem with scout rifles is the hand cannons, which can do equally the same amount of damage as compared to the Scout rifles. And the benefit of hand canon is that they can be drawn and stowed quite fast. But there are a few scout rifles in the game that are used quite often in the game.

So, if you are looking for the best scout rifles in Destiny 2, then check the list provided below. Another reason to have a good scout rifle is that in season 16 i.e. Season of The Risen, we are getting the all-time favorite Anti-Barrier Scout Rifle Champion Mods.
