Destiny 2 Warlock guide: Dawnblade super, abilities and grenades

Destiny 2 Warlock guide: Dawnblade super, abilities and grenades

Destiny 2 is finally here in the form of an explosive open beta, which now available on Xbox and PS4. If you’ve pre-ordered the game you can jump into the beta now, otherwise you’ll have to wait until 3am AEST, or alternatively use this trick to download it early without pre-ordering on PS4.

From what we can tell about the experience, it’s much of the same with some subtle as well as a number of potent changes that mix things up a bit.

In this guide we’ll take a look at the Warlock class, specifically the Dawnblade subclass. Throw in some new Super Abilities as well and it’s clear to see just how new and refined the Destiny 2 experience is.

Warlock Subclasses

Bungie has only revealed two subclasses for the Warlock.

  • Dawnblade
  • Voidwalker

Warlock Abilities

There are two currently known Warlock class skills in Destiny 2:

  1. Healing Rift: The Healing Rift allows you to produce a circle of light that heals players and allies within the radius
  2. Empowering Rift: The Empowering Rift allows you to produce a circle of light that boost attack damage power (as opposed to healing)
