Choosing a Class and Subclass

The foremost thing you need to do in this game is to choose a class. You’ll see the following options: titans, hunters, and warlocks. All classes have different abilities, powers, weapons, and jumps. Therefore, your choice should be calculative.

Titans are tank classes, with protective skills like building barricades. They have very specific abilities and you should choose this class if looking for straightforward gameplay. Titans have the following subclasses: sun breaker, striker, sentinel, and behemoth with varying secondary strengths.

Hunters are quite literally…hunters. If you want something dead, a hunter is one to call. A hunter’s best ability is the ‘Marksman’s Dodge’ which allows him to reload any weapon, and make evasive movements. Hunters are the best choices for players who love to fight and fight stealthily and smartly. Hunters have the subclasses arcstrider, gunslinger, Nightstalker, and revenant.

Warlocks possess extreme control over the elements, and they usually control the sky. They possess healing abilities and are both resilient and durable. If you are a player of mysticism and magic, the Warlock is the way to go. Subclasses for Warlocks are storm caller, drawn blade, voidwalker, and shade binder.

Essential Tips and Tricks

After you’ve chosen your class and subclass, you’re ready to play the game. We came up with this handy list for you:

  1. Destiny 2 is best as a team game. Gather your friends. Make a team. Choose different classes and jump in!
  2. Take care of your ammunition. Use the Power Weapons only for major enemies and use Primary or Special weapons otherwise. Remember, ammo drops are rare for better weapons, so it is okay to be a little miserly.
  3. Pay attention to the loot you’ve collected. Their color determines their rarity. It goes blue, purple, and gold in ascending order.
  4. Prioritize your vendors. Though you should mostly talk to all of them, you should talk to Lord Shaxx, Banshee-44, Xur, and The Drifter. Of course, their importance also depends on your class and subclass.
  5. Don’t just focus on main campaigns. We love going on patrol. You can participate in Public Events, go on adventure quests, get loot, go into exploration zones, and much more.

Things to Do in Destiny 2

Once you’ve started playing and gotten the hang of the game, you might want to pick on some challenges and get to making the best of this amazing game. These are a few things to do in Destiny 2:

  1. Destiny 2 has a great bunch of quirky titles and names that can be bestowed on you. As you play on, you will collect a bunch of titles. Complete missions and generate high scores, and get rewarded.
  2. Go on a solo campaign. You might be a team player, but there is a lot you can do alone in the game if you put your heart into it. Complete solo quests, earn a high rank and boast to your friends.
  3. Collection ammo. Rare weapons (usually Gold or Purple) that you might want to save for future use, but would still love to keep in your inventory. Here’s a tip – Xur is a vendor who appears bi-weekly and usually sells the best and rarest weapons.

Destiny 2 is a complicated but ultimately fun game that you will enjoy as you get the hang of it. The game progresses with you, and expect surprises at every corner.
