Destiny 2, the popular live-service shooter game, has undergone extensive changes in the past few years. With the new subclasses, exotic weapons, armor pieces, and the Armor Charge mod system, the gameplay sandbox has become more extensive and deeper than ever before. Now, hundreds of different builds are possible, and the vast majority of them are effective, provided that players take advantage of their strengths.
However, some builds are stronger than others. Here are the top Hunter, Warlock, and Titan builds, along with some additional popular builds.
Best Hunter Build – Void Nightstalker
The best Hunter build is a Void Nightstalker setup with the Stylish Executioner and Vanishing Step Aspects, the Gyrfalcon's Hauberk Exotic chest armor, and Void weapons. With this build, players can chain Volatile Rounds and invisibility procs, constantly heal, and get grenade energy from Devour.
Best Warlock Build – Solar Dawnblade
The best Warlock build utilizes the Solar Dawnblade subclass with the Starfire Protocol Exotic, Well of Radiance, the Touch of Flame Aspect, Empowering Rifts, and a damage-over-time weapon like Witherhoard. This build allows players to shower enemies with deadly Fusion Grenades while constantly healing, regenerating Well of Radiance quickly, and getting melee energy and Armor Charge for damage resistance.
Best Titan Build – Solar Sunbreaker
The best Titan build is a Solar Sunbreaker setup with the Sol Invictus and Roaring Flames Aspects, the Throwing Hammer melee, and the Lorely Splendor Helm Exotic. With this build, players can generate Sunspots with Throwing Hammer kills that heal them and scorch enemies, while also getting extra on-demand healing from Lorely Splendor Helm and a stacking melee damage bonus from Roaring Flames that makes it easy to spawn more Sunspots.
