Mods and Stats – PvP Hunter Build Destiny 2 D2


For this Hunter PvP build, I recommend prioritizing the following stats in order of importance:

  1. Recovery: Recovery is crucial in PvP as it reduces the time it takes for your health to start regenerating after taking damage, allowing you to get back into the fight more quickly.

Gameplay Strategy

Playing the Strand Hunter subclass in Destiny 2’s PvP mode requires leveraging its newfound mobility to the fullest. Here’s a breakdown of key techniques and strategies:

  1. Mobility is Key: The Strand Hunter is now the fastest subclass in the game thanks to its increased mobility. Make the most of this advantage to excel with this build.
  2. Canceling the Grapple: To maximize readiness, learn how to cancel the Grapple ability. Use Grapple, and then cancel it by pressing the Grenade button again or by switching weapons. This allows you to have your weapon ready when engaging, rather than waiting for the ready animation.
  3. Grapple, Shoot, Melee: Master the technique of Grapple, Shoot, and then Melee in quick succession. This tactic allows you to swiftly change directions, evade enemies, or execute a fast melee attack after landing a shotgun shot to finish off a weakened foe.
  4. Swing Around: Utilize the “swing around” technique to navigate the map swiftly. To do this, fire your Grapple at a corner to round it, move your cursor away from the corner, and then guide your cursor along the bend. This technique lets you traverse corners and obstacles with ease.
  5. Infinite Air Mobility: Learn to stay in the air indefinitely using this build. With two charges of Grapple, initiate this maneuver by shooting one Grapple to create a Grapple Tangle in the air. Then, use the other Grapple charge to shoot the Grapple Tangle, jump (which gets refreshed after using Grapple), and repeat this process. This technique allows you to hover over corners, evade enemy supers, and more.

By mastering these techniques and incorporating them into your gameplay, you can effectively wield the Strand Hunter subclass in Destiny 2’s PvP and dominate your opponents.
