Season Of The Haunted: Builds

Void 3.0 and Solar 3.0 have given their respective subclasses the Aspects and Fragments system we previously saw with Stasis. And thanks to weapon crafting, obtaining the gear you want should be the easiest it's ever been. Buildcrafting has become more important than ever before, and the payoff for creating a build has never been greater.

We've updated our build guides to take full advantage of the new Artifact mods and Fragments released with this expansion and recent seasons. Use the power of Combat Style mods, the 3.0 subclasses, and this expansion's new offerings to create the ultimate Guardian.

Buildcrafting Resources

Buildcrafting in Destiny 2 can be daunting with the sheer array of options you have. Learning about mod synergies, ability cooldowns, and what functions in PvE and PvP is downright impossible if you don't play Destiny 2 for dozens of hours each week. That's where our guides come in. We've tested various mechanics and mods in Destiny 2 and recorded how they work. Want to know how strong Firepower is? Check out our Charged with Light mods article. Interested in what every ability cooldown is? We have that too. We'll be adding to this subsection as needed to help you make the perfect build.
