The Dawnblade is the Sunsinger’s replacement for the Warlock in Destiny 2. Find out all about it here.
Bungie officially unveiled the three new subclasses Destiny 2 will bring to the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock classes we know from the first game. These are the Sentinel, Arcstrider, and Dawnblade respectively.
Not much is known about the Arcstrider, and the Sentinel just yet, but the build of the game everyone got to play at Destiny 2’s reveal event did show off the Warlock’s new Dawnblade subclass. Dawnblade will be the new Solar subclass, replacing the Sunsinger.
