Best Destiny 2 Warlock Build

Warlocks have a variety of powerful builds that they can try out, and here is the best Warlock stasis build that you can use in Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost.

There is plenty of fun content to enjoy in Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost, including Trials of Osiris rewards and bounties from Spider. You can also make use of some power weapons in combat.

Having the right build can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Different weapons, armor mods, abilities, fragments, and aspects can help you make the best Warlock build in Destiny 2.

Best Destiny 2 Warlock build

Our Destiny 2 build revolves around the stasis-based Warlock subclass known as Shadebinder. This arrived as part of the Beyond Light expansion and has many powerful abilities.

We’ll combine this subclass with the proper mods and weapon loadout to create a Warlock build that will help you annihilate your opponents and come out on top.

Abilities

  • Rift: Healing Rift
  • Jump: Burst Glide
  • Melee: Penumbral Blast
  • Grenade: Glacier Grenade

The first ability we equipped is Healing Rift, which will conjure a well of power to help you continuously heal your health. The Burst Glide jump ability lets you move around the map while Warlock skating without slowing down.

If you find yourself overwhelmed by enemies, the Penumbral Blast will allow you to use your Stasis Staff defensively to push back the opposition. The Glacier Grenade lets you block off corridors so that you can put some distance between yourself and the enemy.

Aspects

  • Iceflare Bolts
  • Bleak Watcher

When using the Iceflare Bolts, you can spawn seekers to track down and freeze enemies after you’ve shattered a frozen target.

If you press and hold your grenade button, you can convert it into a stasis turret that fires slow projectiles at nearby enemies, distracting them. This is called the Bleak Watcher, and it helps you push back against teams that have a hold on the map.

Fragments

  • Whisper of Chains
  • Whisper of Rending
  • Whisper of Fissures
  • Whisper of Torment

When you’re close to frozen targets, you will receive damage reduction from the Whispers of Chains fragment. You can pair this with your Glacier Grenade to cause some serious problems for your opponents.

Whisper of Rending ensures that kinetic weapons do more damage to stasis crystals and frozen targets. So, you can throw down the Glacier Grenade and then easily break the crystals to hurt your opponents.

To increase the damage and size of the burst of stasis when you destroy stasis crystals, you can use Whisper of Fissures. Finally, Whisper of Torment will get you more grenade energy for dealing damage to targets in the best Destiny 2 Warlock build.

Stats

  • Recovery: 100
  • Discipline: 60
  • Intellect: 80
  • Resilience: 60
  • Mobility: 44
  • Strength: 52

Your Recovery will reduce the cooldown of the Warlock class ability and increase the speed of your health regeneration. Discipline helps decrease the cooldown of grenades so that you can use them more often.

Intellect reduces the cooldown of your super ability so that you can take full advantage of the Shadebinder subclass. You’ll get to use the super ability to cause some serious mayhem in battle.

We recommend keeping your Resilience at Tier 6 so that you can take more damage without dying. This complements the damage resistance you got from the Whispers of Chains fragment.

Weapons

  • Ace of spades (Kinectic slot)
  • Chaperone Shotgun (Roadborn gives you a generous hitbox, letting oyuh it targets more easily.)

The Ace of Spades has held its spot on the top of Kinetic PVP weapons since its introduction. It has fantastic stats, amazing perks, and an amazing TTK. The recent buff gave players infinite Kinetic ammo, so you won’t have to worry about wasting shots.

You can also equip the Chaperone Shotgun and make use of Roadborn, which gives you a generous hitbox. You’ll be able to hit targets more easily without worrying too much about pellet spread.

Armor mods

  • Headpiece: Mobility / Shotgun and Hand Cannon targetting
  • Chest piece: Unflinching Shotgun aim / Unflinching Hand Cannon aim
  • Leg piece: Radiant Light / Shotgun Holster
  • Charged with Light Mod: Powerful friends

For the headpiece, We prioritized Mobility and the targetting for both the Shotgun and Hand Cannon. This will ensure that you hit your targets dead-on, so make sure you equip high-tier armor like the Hood of the Exile.

We want to improve your precision with your weapons further, so equip Unflinching Shotgun and Hand Cannon aims. Then, combine these with a powerful piece of armor like the Wild Hunt Vestment.

The Radiant Light reduces the cooldown of the Penumbral Blast, and equipping Shotgun Holster ensures that your Shotgun is reloaded over time without having to equip it first. Powerful friends gives you some added mobility.

That covers our best Destiny 2 Warlock Build. You can also experiment with different weapons, abilities, and fragments to pick the Build that suits you best.

How to get the Destiny 2 Last Word Hand Cannon: Exotic Cipher and Ascendant Shard locations

Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the Destiny 2 Last Word weapon, including the Exotic Cipher and Ascendant Shards locations.

Published

on

The Last Word Hand Cannon is an extremely powerful Destiny 2 weapon, and here’s everything you need to know about unlocking it, including the Exotic Cipher and Ascendant Shards locations.

When you hop into Destiny 2, you’ll need to be properly geared up for some challenging battles. The good news is that the game features a wide selection of powerful weapons to choose from.

The Last Word Hand Cannon is an Exotic weapon that boasts a full-auto fire rate and increased hip-fire capabilities. If you want to get your hands on this gun, then this guide has you covered.

How to craft the The Last Word in Destiny 2

You can only get the Destiny 2 Last Word Hand Cannon from the Monument to Lost Lights weapon vault in the Tower. This vendor is located on the far right side of the Courtyard landing zone.

In order to craft the weapon, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 1x Exotic Cipher
  • 125,000 Glimmer
  • 200 Etheric Spiral
  • 1x Ascendant Shard

You can obtain Glimmers easily, and Etheric Spirals are given as rewards for every bounty you complete for Spider at The Tangled Shore. You can find both Exotic Ciphers and the Ascendant Shards prevent more of a challenge.

However, Exotic Ciphers and Ascendant Shards are a bit more difficult to acquire, and we’ll go over everything you need to know about collecting them.

How to collect Destiny 2 Exotic Ciphers

You can obtain Exotic Ciphers by either reaching rank 55 in the current Season Pass or purchasing them from Xur the merchant. You can still receive them as a seasonal rank reward even if you don’t have the Season Pass.

If you’ve already collected a seasonal cipher previously, you’ll need to complete Xur’s Xenology quest to earn another. This requires you to complete 21 strikes, or win matches in the Crucible or Gambit.

How to collect Destiny 2 Ascendant Shards

If you already have the paid Season Pass then you’ll get Ascendant Shards after reaching season ranks 80, 85, and 94. Alternatively, you can also purchase Shards from either Banshee-44 or Ada-1.

Here’s the general cost for each Shard:

  • 10 Enhancement Prisms
  • 100 planetary materials
  • 50,000 Glimmer

It’s worth keeping in mind that the planetary materials required for these Shards are random and change depending on the day. If you’re still on the hunt, then you’ll have a few different options for unlocking Ascendant Shards.

You can either complete platinum runs of Grandmaster Nightfall Strikes, make a flawless run in Trials of Osiris, or reach 10,000 reputation with either Zavala, Lord Shaxx, the Drifter, or Saint-14.

Once you’ve gathered everything you need, simply head back to The Monument to Lost Lights to collect the Last Word Hand Cannon. You can now use this weapon to cause some serious pain to your enemies.
