Destiny 2 brings back an old favourite subclass, the Warlock’s Voidwalker – and it’s deadlier than ever.
Destiny 2 players who choose the Voidwalker subclass can expect to fit right into the Warlock paradigm of tricky, looping DPS builds. As part of our Destiny 2 guide, let’s check it out.
The Voidwalker’s super, Nova Bomb, has the same description as ever but can be specced in two different ways. Those who chose the Attunement of Chaos passive skill tree will fire a slower projectile which tracks enemies and splits into multiple projectiles. It may be easier for enemies to dodge, but it’s more persistent – although it can be blown up with a weapon to detonate early. On the other hand, the Attunement of Hunger passive skill tree turns Nova Bomb into a singularity that continually damages enemies trapped inside.
Destiny 2 makes no changes to the Voidwalker’s grenades, so you can once again choose from the Vortex Grenade (damage over time on trapped enemies), the Axion Bolt (multiple seeking projectiles) or the Scatter Grenade (multiple projectiles with a large area of effect).
Grenades are a little less powerful in Destiny 2, but the Attunement of Chaos path allows Voidwalkers to sacrifice Super charge in order to power up grenades. On the other hand if you’re not into grenades, you can use the Attunement of Hunger path to consume your grenade charge but restore your health.
Other options in the passive trees allow Voidwalkers to charge their health or grenade, and to blow up enemies killed with abilities. Plenty of options there, perfectly designed to make innocent opponent Hunters cry.
For more detail on all of this, check out the video guide from Arekkz, or scroll down further for the full skill tree in text format.
