Warlock Build Solo Survive Destiny 2 D2

Welcome to the Survivability Warlock Build for Season of the lost in Destiny2. Warlocks in Destiny2 are very strong and one of the top tier surviver in the game. With this warlock build a very offensive playstyle is possible because you get life back by killing enemies. Unusual in destiny2.

All these aspects make the this build such good, a more detailed layout can be founded below in each build sections.

  • Best survival thanks to devour
  • Very good ability regeneration
  • Good for hard content where survive is the key
  • Nice synergie with exotic armor and weapons
  • Good burst damage

Build Setup – best survive Warlock

Lets take a look at the Warlock Build for best possible Survivibility in Destiny2. Below you will find things like Skill Tree, Mods, Exotic Armour and Weapons, Synergies, Playstyle and recommended Weapons. These are all importent parts of the Warlock best survive Build.

Skill Tree – Warlock Build

For the best survival with the warlock we use attunement of hunger (Bottom tree void). The devour effect in combination with this build makes this warlock immortal as long as there are enough small enemies to eliminate quickly. By holding Q and consuming your grenade you get the devour effect for 10 seconds. Each kill in those 10 seconds will completely replenish your life and restart the devour effect at 10 seconds. You can also trigger the devour effect with a charged melee attack.
The super does good burst damage and leaves an area of effect which still does damage over time.

Synergies with exotic armour – Warlock Build

Our Survive King build is designed so that once we have deep life we can consume a grenade and keep ourselves alive. That’s why the Exotic Nezarecs Sin fits in perfectly. All void based kills (super, weapons or melee) increase our skill recharge rate. That’s why we play mainly void weapons in this build.

Mods – Warlock Build Destiny2

Helmet Mods

  • Fusion Rifle Ammo Finder
  • Intellect Mod (chose whats fit best for you)


Because Fusion Rifle is in such a god spot at the moment we want ammo finder to be sure we have always ammo with our Warlock Build too kill majors fast and do best damage on bosses.

Gauntlets Mods

  • Fusion Rifle Loader (Artifact mod)
  • Supercharged
  • Minor Recovery Mod (chose whats fit best for you)


One slot is intentionally left empty. Here you insert the appropriate mod depending on which champions you have to defeat. for example overload bow.

The fusions rifle loader mod from the artifact is a must have because it only uses 1 energy but is super useful. We use supercharged here to collect as many stacks of charged of light as possible which will give our Warlock build a lot of survivability.

Chest Mods

  • Sniper Damage Resistent
  • Concussive dampener
  • Protective Light
  • Intellect Mod (chose whats fit best for you)


The first two mods depend a bit on the activity. Sometimes it can be useful to play Void Resistance. But it always surprises me how few people use Concussive Dampener. It’s such a good mod because there is so much splash damage in destiny2. (for example the arkus projectiles from the knight or the annoying fire from the taken knights)
Protective light is the best mod when it comes to survival and therefore indispensable for our warlock build. Thats also the reason why we stack up all these chraged with light mods.

Leg Mods

  • Recuperation
  • Fusion Scavenger
  • Charged Up
  • Recovery Mod (chose whats fit best for you)


Recuperation is used because we constantly generate orbs of power through our mastered weapons and thus constantly give us a little bit of life back. Optimal for our destiny 2 warlock build for survivability.
The Fusions Scavenger is awesome because it is two mods in one and very handy when you play a fusions rifle in the special slot and a linear fusions rifle in the heavy slot.
Charged up is used again for gain as many stacks of charged with light as possible.

Class Item Mods

  • Particle Deconstruction
  • Taking Charge


Particle desonstruction is the best mod in the season it turns any fusion rifle into a boss/major melter. It turns our otherwise survival focused Destiny 2 Warlock build into a real dps monster after all.
The taking charge mod will give us massive stacks of charged of light from the orbs of power we generate with kills from masterpiece weapons and activate supers

Recommended Weapons

For our warlock build for best possible suvivability different loudouts are well suited. Depending on the activity, I recommend other weapons. Below I have listed various loadouts for general PvE activities. Depending on how far you have already progressed in the game. Specific raid or grandmaster setups can be found here.

  • Overflow
  • Rampage

(Or just take any Primary Weapon that fits best for you.)

  • Feeding Frenzy
  • High-Impact Reserves

Playstyle – Warlock Build Destiny2

With our Survive King build you are forced to play aggressively. Due to the fact that devour always renews when you make a kill, you can stand well in the middle of the opponents as long as you make a kill every par seconds you always get full life again and can therefore also play well aggressively. Majors are simply melted with the fusion rifles and particle deconstruction. As soon as devour runs out, the grenade should be full again thanks to our exotic and can be consumed again.

I recommend to use armor with high discipline and recovery stats for this build.
