Destiny 2 build: Best Destiny 2 Builds | Windows Central

I made a build for every Exotic weapon. : destiny2builds

Well, almost. 79 of them out of 98. I enjoy buildcrafting and this seemed like a unique challenge, and there’s nothing else to do at the end of the season.

Anyway, the builds are sorted by class, ammo type, and whether they’re for PvE or PvP. A few of them include multiple Exotic weapons because I couldn’t think of anything unique for all of them, and I only used heavy weapons that I could make a cohesive build around (what the hell am I gonna do with Colony?). Also screw the Exotic glaives.

All PvE builds were tested in Legend or higher content, including campaign missions, Nightfalls, Wellspring, etc. I tested each PvP build in 3-5 games of Control or IB and was able to get top 3 at least twice with each.

There is a wide variety of mods used so feel free to change them if you don’t have certain mods. Most of these builds are really strong and some are just fun as hell. And I spent almost two months on this so please try at least a few of them. Enjoy!

Destiny 2 Warlock build – best builds for PvP and PvE

Essentially the closest thing Destiny 2 has to a mage class, the Warlock is possibly the most versatile of the three classes in the game – something our Destiny 2 Warlock build guide will now perfectly demonstrate. Ostensibly the more cerebral of the bunch, the Warlock can still bring the noise and is able to dish out massive damage while speccing for strong defence and utility.

With hundreds of possible combinations and some of the coolest abilities in the game, it can be tough to even figure out what works best for you. With the Subclass reworks we’ve received in the run-up to the Lightfall release, there’s now more choice than ever when it comes to creating the perfect Warlock.

In this Destiny 2 Warlock build guide, we’ll give you a handful of options to start with for PvP and PvE activities. While we’ll be dealing with some endgame mods and items, we’ll try to avoid any super-rare drops.

Destiny 2 Warlock build for PvE

For the best Destiny 2 Warlock build for PvE in Season of the Seraph, look no further than this Chaos Engine Void build.

  • Subclass: Nova Bomb – Vortex
  • Primary stat: Discipline
  • Secondary stat: Strength
  • Grenade: Vortex grenade
  • Class ability: Empowering Rift
  • Aspects: Chaos Accelerant, Feed the Void
  • Fragments: Echo of Expulsion, Echo of Persistence, Echo of Remnants
  • Exotic armour: Contraverse Hold, Nezerac’s Sin
  • Weapons: Any of the best Destiny 2 weapons
  • Mods: Hands-On, Harmonic Siphon, Impact Induction, Absolution, Outreach. When paired with a Charged with Light set-up this build is something monstrous in PvE, so consider Taking Charge, High Energy Fire, and Elemental Charge.

The true beauty of this Destiny 2 Warlock build is the Devour effect. The Feed the Void Aspect will grant Devour for every enemy defeated with a Void ability, and since you’ll be slinging grenades left and right, you’ll rarely lose the buff. Echo of Persistence might even be overkill, as this increases the intrinsic effect. You might get by just as well slotting Echo of Exchange instead.

If you choose to run Charged with Light (which is usually more consistently rewarding than Warmind Cells), consider sticking Gnawing Hunger in your secondary weapon slot as the Void damage from this assault rifle will help generate elemental wells. If it’s Masterworked, even better, as you’ll get Orbs of Power for your trouble. Gnawing Hunger commonly rolls with Demolitionist, which boosts your grenade recharge rate. Finally, choose Vortex grenade to maximise the effects of Echo of Remnants.

Contraverse Hold or Nezerac’s Sin are the Exotics of choice, as both boost Void abilities, but if you have neither consider the standard fall-backs such as Ophidian Aspect or Verity’s Brow.

Destiny 2 Warlock build for PvP

Arguably the best Destiny 2 Warlock build for PvP activities in Season of the Seraph is this Archangel Solar build.

  • Subclass: Dawnblade – Well of Radiance
  • Primary stat: Strength
  • Secondary stat: Recovery
  • Grenade: Fusion grenade or Healing grenades
  • Class ability: Phoenix Dive
  • Melee Ability: Celestial Fire
  • Aspects: Heat Rises, Icarus Dash
  • Fragments: Ember of Torches, Ember of Tempering, Ember of Singeing, Ember of Char
  • Exotic armour: Wings of Sacred Dawn, Chromatic Fire
  • Weapons: Any Solar weapon with the Incandescent perk
  • Mods: Hands-on, Harmonic Syphon, Impact Induction, Absolution, Outreach, Distribution, Heal Thyself, Radiant Light, Charged Up

There are so many awesome choices for an offensive Warlock in PvP, but this build focuses on rising above the fray, bringing big damage as well as big heals. It prioritises battle placement in team-based PvP, giving you massive range and visibility. Bungie is constantly tweaking the Airborne Effectiveness stat, though, so you may need to experiment regularly with some of the mods here.

Primarily, you’re using the Heat Rises Aspect to stay above the battlefield. By consuming one grenade charge, you can stay suspended for longer, and kills will prolong the effect. Long range weapons like Scout Rifles are great, especially if paired with the Chromatic Fire Exotic chest, which creates explosions in your subclass element on Kinetic precision kills.

Slotting the Radiant Light mod in your helmet will bestow Charged with Light upon nearby squadmates, while if you need to get out of trouble Icarus Dash has you covered. Heat Rises is key, as it will give your Icarus Dash two dodges, and causes your Phoenix Dive to apply cure to nearby allies while scorching enemies. The selected Fragments focus on returning energy and increasing the effects of restoration.

Healing grenades will keep your team up, while your Well of Radiance will provide a safe haven and restoration for allies. Also, stick with Celestial Fire for your powered melee. The Fingersnap is cool as all hell, but the range on Celestial Fire is incredible. It’s worth noting that the new Destiny 2 The Manticore Exotic in Season of the Seraph gives everyone wings, so you might not be alone up there for long.

Destiny 2 Warlock build for all activities

We reckon that as an all-rounder, the best Destiny 2 Warlock build you could use in Season of the Seraph is this Lord of Storms Arc build.

  • Subclass: Stormcaller – Stormtrance
  • Primary stat: Resilience
  • Secondary stat: Discipline
  • Grenade: Flashbang
  • Class ability: Healing Rift
  • Melee Ability: Chain Lightning
  • Aspects: Arc Soul, Electrostatic Mind
  • Fragments: Spark of Beacons, Spark of Magnitude, Spark of Brilliance, Spark of Resistance
  • Exotic armour: Crown of Tempests, Fallen Sunstar
  • Weapons: Delicate Tomb, Riskrunner, Trinity Ghoul, Thunderlord, Trespasser
  • Mods: Ashes to Assets or Hands-on (x2), Momentum Transfer, Seeking Wells, Elemental Charge, Firepower, Elemental Ordnance

This is a build that will not only devastate crowds of ads in PvE, but throw up a few surprises for opposing Guardians in PvP, too. The focus here is on Ionic Traces, bolts of light that will travel across the ground to you and boost your ability regen. Ideally for this build you want Fallen Sunstar, the new Exotic Helmet which increases the speed and potency of Traces. However, if you haven’t snagged it from the Solo Lost Sector runs yet, Crown of Tempests will still boost your regen by a massive amount.

To maximise this build, we want to take advantage of the perks of Electrostatic Mind. This Aspect causes Jolted or Blinded targets to release an Ionic Trace when killed. The combination of Flashbang Grenades and Chain Lightning is absolutely lethal here, as packs of enemies or opposing teams can be exploited easily with a few well-timed abilities.

Running Healing Rift is ideal for PvE or PvP, as when combined with Spark of Resistance it will make you almost as resilient as a Titan running the Lorely Splendor (we said “almost”; you’re still not a tank). Equipping Arc Soul is great for some extra firepower. 

Weaponry can be anything with Arc output, but Trinity Ghoul or Riskrunner are unrivalled when it comes to chaining damage between groups of foes. Blind a pack of mobs with a well-placed ‘nade, and use Trinity Ghoul’s Lightning Rod perk to mop them up – then sit back and watch the Ionic Traces roll in. That said, Delicate Tomb (the new Seasonal Exotic) has a perk that generates Traces on kills.

As for mods, you can’t really go wrong with either Hands-on or Ashes to Assets (and remember that they stack), while Momentum Transfer (Arms), Absolution or Distribution (Legs) and Outreach (Bond) will help keep those resources flowing. Charged with Light mods like Elemental Charge, Elemental Ordnance and either Firepower or High-Energy Fire combine for even more full-frontal damage.

Destiny 2 Warlock Stasis build for endgame content

For Stasis fans, this Frost Cannon Stasis build is the best Destiny 2 Warlock build you could use for endgame content in Season of the Seraph.

  • Subclass: Stasis Shadebinder
  • Primary stat: Resilience
  • Secondary stat: Discipline
  • Grenade: Coldsnap
  • Class ability: Healing Rift
  • Melee Ability: Penumbral Blast
  • Aspects: Bleak Watcher, Glacial Harvest
  • Fragments: Wiper of Durance, Whisper of Rime, Whisper of Chains, Whisper of Conduction
  • Exotic armour: Osmiomancy Gloves
  • Weapons: Any Stasis Kinetic
  • Mods: Ashes to Assets or Hands-on, Firepower, Elemental Shards

If you want infinite grenades and near-infinite melee uptime, this is the build for you. The key to it is the combination of the Osmiomancy Gloves and the Bleak Watcher Aspect. The Exotic gives you two Coldsnap Grenades and boosts your recharge rate for kills and collected Stasis Shards. This means you can drop two Stasis Turrets to cover your back and keep the Shards rolling in, while you continue to throw grenades.

As long you’re getting kills and not simply spamming ‘nades with wanton abandon, you’ll maintain Charged with Light status (thanks to the Elemental Shards mod in any Stasis legs), a steady Overshield thanks to Whisper of Rime, and reduced damage thanks to Whisper Chains. Add the Glacial Harvest Aspect to create even more Stasis Shards around frozen targets and you’ll be rolling in Ability energy.

Not only that, but your turrets will shred low-level adds and slow bigger targets, allowing you to focus on the tougher enemies and, crucially, stay alive longer. This is without a doubt one of the strongest Warlock builds available for harder content in Destiny 2.

Well, we hope this guide has given you some ideas. Remember, these are just a few examples of the kind of devastating endgame Warlock builds you can create without the need for particularly rare gear. There are countless alternatives to consider, but ultimately you’re always going to benefit from committing to a singular playstyle that you feel comfortable with.

Destiny 2: Fun and Unique Builds You Need to Try — Help & How To

Help And How To

Source: Bungie

While Destiny 2’s metagame is well defined and relatively narrow, that doesn’t mean you can’t excel using custom weapons, armor, and subclasses. In fact, some of the funniest and most unique builds in the game are considered off-meta, and while they’re not are the most effective options, they are still great to use and will handle most tasks.

Here are some of the most interesting and creative builds you can put together right now, along with details on how each one works (check out my guide to the best Destiny 2 builds and how to make your own for more details on build intricacies) .

Destiny 2 Fun Builds: Titanium

Source: Bungie

Generally, Titans are all about throwing, smashing and shooting lots of stuff (I mean 9008 lots) bullets. Therefore, the best way to get creative with building a Titan is to increase your abilities and effectiveness in dealing with enemies like this.

Thor, god of thunder build

Source: Bungie

For even more firepower, you can include Charged with Light mods in your build. Using Charge, Stacks on Stacks, and Supercharged will help you get (and stay) charged with light, and then using Reactive Pulse allows you to send deadly arc blasts whenever enemies hit you while you’re charged.

Yeet Titan assembly

Source: Bungie

  • Subclass: striker, Code of missile
  • Exotic: Kirasa falling star, Monte Carlo
  • Weapons: Roze and sword of workshop
  • Characteristics of the main armor: Rekavi, intelligence
  • of the important Mater Charging, stacking, boosting, protective light

Throwing something at enemies to kill them is true. But what if I told you that you could roll a itself instead of them? That’s the whole point of this Thundercrash-focused build, which I’ve affectionately dubbed the «Yeet Titan build.» The centerpiece of the build is the Shooting Star Breastplate Exotic Chestguard, which doubles the damage of your Thunderstrike and grants you a shield when you hit a target. You can also attack enemies with the Ballistic Slam melee ability, which creates a huge arc shockwave at the landing site, and then you can quickly recharge it for another use, damaging enemies with Monte Carlo. Rinse and repeat over and over for maximum carnage. I also recommend keeping a Shotgun and Sword handy as you will be constantly close to enemies and sometimes your Ballistic Strike and Monte Carlo won’t be enough for more difficult targets. nine0003

Since this build encourages constant aggression, some Charged with Light defensive mods will be useful. I recommend using Take Charge, Stacks on Stacks, and Supercharged to permanently charge Charged with Light, then equip Protective Light for its 50% tanky damage reduction that triggers whenever your shields break during Charged with Light.

Actium War Rig Assembly


  • subclass: Personal preference
  • Exotic: combat installation of excise tax, sweet business or xenofag
  • Weapons: Skillful automatic rifle, special forces and machine gun
  • Characteristics of the main armor: Recovery, sustainability
  • . Taking charge, stacking, boosting, high energy fire OR protective light

Shooting a gun is fun, but reloading is not. Luckily Actium War Rig Exotic exists and with it you will almost never have to reload your automatic rifle and/or machine gun again. This is because he constantly reloads your assault rifles and machine guns for you. nine0007 how you fire them. A great auto rifle to use with the Actium War Rig is the Exotic Sweet Business, which also reloads when you pick up basic ammo blocks. Together with the automatic reloading of the Actium War Rig, this ensures a steady stream of bullets until you run out of ammo. Alternatively, you can use the Xenophage exotic machine gun if you need a strong weapon that deals damage to the boss. Be sure to use a good auto rifle if you’re using Xenophage, or a good machine gun if you’re using Sweet Business. Since you will often be outdoors, high recovery and resilience will help you avoid damage. nine0003

Light-charged mods have less impact here than in other builds, but they’re still good. Aside from the usual trio of Charge, Stacks upon Stacks, and Surge, I recommend either high-energy fire for more damage, or protective light for extra safety as you mow down hordes of enemies.

Destiny 2 Fun Builds: Hunter

Source: Bungie

Hunters are the most agile and cunning of the three classes, and as such, builds that emphasize the Hunter’s mobility and cunning tend to be the most unique and interesting. nine0033

One of the strongest aspects of the Nightstalker subclass is that you can turn yourself and your allies invisible with the smoke bomb melee ability, and when combined with the Omnioculous Exotic chest armor and Gambler’s Dodge, you will almost always have a smoke bomb at the ready. for near-permanent invisibility. This is because Omnioculous gives you two smoke bomb charges and increases your melee reload speed when you make allies invisible. In addition, if you make yourself and your teammates invisible, they will be protected from damage, which will be useful in PvE games at the end of the game. Gambler’s Dodge allows you to instantly get a smoke bomb if you can’t link them to Omnioculous, and high mobility ensures that your Gambler’s Dodge also recharges fairly quickly. nine0003

Although not required, using the Taking Charge, Stacks on Stacks, Boost, and Light Charged Protective Light mods will also help increase survivability if you are caught out of stealth at any point. By the time Protective Light’s damage reduction wears off, you’ll likely have another smoke bomb ready.

Liar’s Handshake Assembly


  • Subclass: Wanderer, Warrior’s Way, Player Evasion
  • Exotic: False Handsome
  • Weapons: Workshop Primary processing, shotgun with two blows and sword
  • Characteristics of the main armor: Restoration, mobility
  • Important mods: EXPRISE BY WIGH , jet pulse OR protective light

Who said that titans are the only ones who can endlessly hit objects, causing huge damage? Hunters aren’t usually that good at hand-to-hand combat, but thanks to the Liar’s exotic handshake, that’s no longer the case. Thanks to Arcstrider’s Path of the Warrior skill tree, every melee kill recharges your dodge, which can then be used to instantly recharge your melee if you use Player Dodge. This skill tree also gives you the Combination Blow buff when you land melee kills, which stacks up to three times and greatly increases your melee damage. Combined with Liar’s Handshake, which empowers your next melee attack after the first attack, you can use the Path of the Warrior skill tree to deal massive bursts of burst damage with each hit, deftly dodging your next target after each kill. blow. You can increase your damage by is even greater than if you also have the One-Two Punch shotgun, which gives you a melee damage buff for hitting all shotgun shotguns. This boosts the effectiveness of the combo to the effective damage levels of the raid boss, which is pretty insane. A sword in your heavy slot can help take out enemies that aren’t ready for your strikes.

You can also add some Charged with Light mods here if you like. As usual, I recommend the classic trio of Take Charge, Stacks on Stacks, and Supercharged to stay energized with light at all times. You can then use Reactive Pulse to hit enemies near you with arcing shockwaves as they damage you, or you can use Protective Light for extra protection as you crush the skulls of every enemy in sight. nine0003

Laying Raiju Belt Deflection


  • Subclass: Arcstrider, Exotic
  • 9003 Raiju Belt
  • Weapon: Workshop Primary, Special and Heavy
  • Main Armor Stats: Recovery, Intelligence
  • Important mods: Take Charge, Stacks on Stacks, Boost, Energy Converter, Firepower, Innervate

If you want to pretend to be a Jedi deflecting blaster shots and then slashing enemies with a lightsaber, this Arcstrider build is for you. It uses the Way of the Current skill tree, which allows you to deflect enemy attacks back at them with your Arc Staff super, which not only protects you and your teammates, but also increases the damage of your Arc Staff itself. This version of the Arc Staff is usually pretty weak as blocking damage drains super fast, but Raiju’s Harness Exotic makes it so that reflecting damage doesn’t drain super energy at all. This allows you to perform this block and slash combo for a long time before your ultimate runs out. nine0003

Since this build is extremely super-centric, it’s best to use Charged with Light mods, which will help you get it back very quickly. Charge, stacks upon stacks, and boost will keep you constantly charged with light, while the Energy Converter uses your stacks of Charged with Light to replenish your super energy whenever you throw grenades (Firepower also helps you return some of the grenade’s energy when you throw a grenade. one). The Innervation leg armor mod also replenishes grenade energy when you pick up Orbs of Power. Finally, high Intelligence will help you quickly regain your super ability. nine0003

Destiny 2 Fun Builds: Warlock

Source: Bungie

Warlocks are usually at their best when supporting their teammates with healing and/or damage buffs and at a good distance from enemies. Warlocks are also the best class when it comes to mid-air combat, as their hover jumps are great for flying through combat arenas. Builds that enhance these qualities tend to be very fun and very effective. nine0003

Assembly of Solar Grenadier

Source: Bungie

  • Subclass: Dawn blade, Settings of the sky
  • Exotic: Sunbracers, Monte Carlo
  • Weapons: Weapons: Weapons: Weapons: Weapons: Armor: Restoration, Mobility
  • Important mods: Wrath of Rasputin, Rage of the Battlemind, Global Reach

This is without a doubt the best ad-clearing build in all of Destiny 2. Thanks to the flight-focused Attunement of Sky skill tree , and its Celestial Fire melee abilities, you can pair it with Sunbracers to get unlimited grenade throws for six seconds while floating high in the air. You can then scatter solar grenades over groups of enemies, burning entire hordes to ash from your mid-air vantage point. You can then use Monte Carlo to quickly recharge Celestial Fire, starting the entire chain again. High mobility will help you take to the air more efficiently, as your mobility score improves your jump height. nine0003

This build gets even more deadly when you use Warmind Cells. Wrath of Rasputin gives you a chance to create these explosives whenever your solar grenades kill enemies, while Rage of the Warmind makes their explosions solar. This means that your own Warmind cells have a chance to spawn. over Warmind Cells if they do enough damage to kill something. You can use Global Reach to increase their blast radius. What could be better than adding more explosives? nine0003

Support the assembly of the healer

Source: Heavy

  • Main armor stats: Recovery, intelligence OR discipline
  • Important mods: Wrath of Rasputin, Cell Jammer, Global Reach, Medic Fire Team
  • If you want to play Warlock like a mage healer, this build is for you. The Mood of Grace skill tree allows you to charge a solar grenade to generate healing energy for you and your allies, while the Phoenix Exotic Protocol causes your Well of Radiance to regenerate very quickly if your fireteam uses it to generate a large amount of energy. murders. The Lumina Exotic Arm Cannon is also capable of firing special healing projectiles after a kill with it, which can be used as an extra security measure for your fireteam. High Intelligence will help you get Well of Radiance even faster, and Discipline is useful if you want to use a lot of grenades. nine0003

    Are you missing healing? Equip the Wrath of Rasputin, Global Reach, and Fireteam Medic Warmind Cell Mods to spawn a Warmind Cell with your solar ability kills, then destroy them to give all your allies a massive amount of health. You can also use Cellular Suppression, which allows you to blind nearby enemies while you destroy your Warmind Cells.

    Ranged Turret

    Source: Bungie

    • subclass: Bury call, setting control
    • Exotic: Bug artist, not time to explain
    • Weapons: Workshop Special and heavy
    • Characteristics of the main armor, discipline
    • Earlier: Embust Charging, stacking, boosting, high-energy fire

    Why shoot when you can find little buddies to help you? In this build, you can use the Getaway Artist to charge your Arc Grenades into the Arc Soul, which automatically fires deadly arc bullets at enemies. You can then crit with Exotic No Time to Explain Exotic to create a small portal that fires extra bullets at whatever you aim at. You can keep both «turrets» active at the same time, turning you into a ranged ad-clearing monster. Ionic trails, which can drop from defeated enemies thanks to the Attunement of Control skill tree, also help reload your grenades faster, allowing you to quickly create another Arc Soul as soon as your first one is gone. A high Discipline score can also help in this regard. This skill tree also gives you the super ability Chaos Reach, which deals high damage and is strong at a distance, where you will be. nine0003

    No mods are needed to make this setup effective, but you can use the basic combination of Take Charge, Stacks on Stacks, Supercharged and High-Energy Fire Charged with Light to increase damage to both you and your turrets.

    Destiny 2’s Returning Titan’s Sword, the Crown Splitter, may be the most powerful weapon in the game, but it’s unclear how long that will last.

    Destiny 2’s Sword Meta hasn’t changed much over the past few seasons, and Lament has become king of Sword DPS after proving its dominance over Falling Guillotine. Destiny 2 Guardians may have a new Sword to fight the current best options.

    RELATED: Destiny 2: What the Graviton Lance Catalyst Does and How to Find It

    The Crown Splitter is a Titan-exclusive Abyssal Sword that returned in Destiny 2 along with its Warlock and Hunter counterparts. What’s special about the Crown-Splitter is that it currently works with the Powerful Seasonal Energy Accelerant Mod and can be combined with Destiny 2’s Breach and Clear Mod if used by another fireteam member.

    Updated on June 15, 2021 by Russ Boswell: It’s been roughly two weeks since the community started discovering potential Energy Accelerant and Heavy Attack damage from Crown Splitter and Bungie have yet to fix the curious DPS increase. It is still unclear if the developer has decided to leave the potential bug alone or if they are going to throw out a patch to fix the offending glitch. At the time of writing, insane damage numbers are still possible when using the correct Crown Splitter build . As more players start getting their hands on heavy Titan weapons, we decided to update this guide with more pertinent information. nine0008

    Solo Crown Splitter Build

    To build a Crown-Splitter with maximum potential, Destiny 2 Titans will want to start with the Sword’s base throw and look for perks to maximize its base damage. There are a couple of builds of the Crown Splitter that players might want to try out. According to Destiny 2 Youtuber Aztecross, a solid solo build will include Crown Splitter such as:

    • Honed/Jagged Edge
    • Heavy Guard
    • Flash Counter
    • Verpal Weapon

    This skill combo will give Guardians solid survivability by using the Flash Counter not only to weaken enemies but also to disorient them, reducing the damage (and potential attacks) players will take while being close and personal with the enemy. Jagged Edge offers more DPS potential, but Honed Edge could work, especially since some players had no luck with the 9 drop in the first place0071 Crown Splitter , making it hard to farm for God Roll.

    Max Damage Crown Splitter Build

    Those looking to maximize their damage potential will want to target this Crown Splitter build, using what could be considered a God Roll (for quickly melting bosses and high level enemies):

    • Jagged Edge
    • Heavy Guardian
    • Relentless Strikes
    • Whirlwind Blade

    Starting with the blade trait, Guardians can choose what works best for them, with an emphasis on traits that grant increased ammo or hit. The second perk column is static and the only option is Heavy Guard, however Crown-Splitter’s last two perk columns have two perks that pair well together: Relentless Strikes and Whirlwind Blade.

    RELATED: Destiny 2: Glass Vault 9 Hidden Chest Location Guide0003

    Destiny 2 Titans will need Relentless Strikes for its ability to return sword ammo after every third light attack in a short amount of time, increasing the window of potential damage. This pairs perfectly with the Whirlwind Blade, increasing the Crown-Splitter’s damage with every swift Sword strike. Stacking up to five times, increasing maximum damage by 30%, Whirlwind Blade doubles what the Vorpal Weapon offers by 15%.

    Titans should aim to finish their Crown Divider with the Strike Workshop and the Major or Boss Spec mods depending on the target. The rotation that Titans should use with the Crown-Splitter is five light attacks followed by a heavy attack. Since heavy attacks on Swords are more powerful at full melee charge, Titans don’t want to spam heavy attacks with their Crown Divider. Using five light attacks before a heavy attack gives time to recharge the melee attack of the Sword, while the Guardians use Whirlwind Blade to increase their damage before the next heavy attack. nine0003

    From here Destiny 2 Titans can increase their damage even further with the new Energy Accelerant seasonal mod. Energy Accelerant should increase damage from Dragonfly, Chain Reaction and Firefly explosions; however, it still appears to be buggy and now affects the Crown-Splitter. Energy Accelerant increases Crown-Splitter’s powerful attack by 100%, instantly doubling his DPS. Given that the Energy Accelerant should not work this way in Destiny 2 , , it’s safe to assume that this is a bug that will likely be fixed at some point by .

    Whether or not the current interaction between the Crown-Splitter and Energy Accelerant is a bug, it currently allows the Crown-Splitter to be one of the best damage options in Destiny 2 . This current Crown-Splitter build will also stack with Lucent Blade or Weapons of Light for an additional 35% damage. Flash Counter can replace Relentless Strikes with an additional 20% debuff on the target, but for this, Guardians must block a melee attack immediately after defending, which may not be consistent with bosses Destiny 2 , which makes Relentless Strike the best choice due to its ease of use.
