One Small Step review and best perks | Destiny 2

One Small Step is a Moon shotgun from Destiny 2. As a Rapid-Fire Frame, it fires at 140 RPM and deals kinetic damage. Here are the perks and rolls you should look for on One Small Step in Destiny 2

Perks and rolls

Range is the name of the game with this shotgun. Even small buffs to this stat will help with damage falloff. For barrel perks, look for Rifled Barrel, Smallbore, and Corkscrew Rifling. Tactical Mag, Accurized Rounds, and Appended Mag are the best magazine perks.

Dual Loader was a perk only found on Deep Stone Crypt weapons previously, and is now found on One Small Step. It allows you to reload two shells at the cost of reload speed. Feeding Frenzy and Slideshot are also strong reload perk options. Surplus is great for an all-around stat boost to the weapon.

There are three damage perk options on this weapon. Trench Barrel is great for increasing burst damage, as well as reload speed and handling. This works best on bosses and majors. For lower-tier enemies, One for All and Swashbuckler are excellent options. These are the best options in the second column, as the other perks don’t provide much utility.


Here are the perk combinations and god rolls you should look for on One Small Step in Destiny 2:

  • Surplus + Trench Barrel 
  • Dual Loader + Trench Barrel
  • Feeding Frenzy + Swashbuckler


One Small Step is one of the few Moon weapons that hasn’t been nerfed in the rerelease. One-Two Punch used to be the strongest option on the previous version, but this perk sees less and less use as new damage strats come out.

One Small Step drops from the Lectern of Enchantment on the Moon.
