Celestial Nighthawk in Action

Welcome to the DAMAGE Hunter Build for Season of the lost in Destiny2. Hunters in Destiny2 are very strong and one of the top tier burst damage in the game. Gunslinger Hunters have the best range burst damage and have great synergies with exotic armor and weapons.

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

  • Very good burst damage
  • Good for Raids, Strikes and Dungeons
  • Nice synergie with exotic armor and weapons
  • No need to get close

Build Setup – Damage Cowboy Hunter Build

Lets take a look at the Hunter Build for best possible Burst Damage 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 Hunter Damage Build.

Hunter Build Destiny 2

Skill Tree – Hunter Build

For the best possible burst damage we use Way of the Sharpshooter. Mainly because it allows us to make critical hits with our super golden cannon.

For damage phases in boss fights the markmans dodge is also important to reload your heavy weapon as fast as possible.

The movement mode can be selected at will. The triple Jump works best for me.

Synergies with exotic armour – Titan Build

The Celestial Nighthawk makes our super can shoot the golden cannon only once but does much higher damage. This makes sense because then you have a fast high burst damage and can immediately continue with his damage weapon or take cover.

Mods – Hunter Build

Helmet Mods

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


Although global reach has been nerved it is still a very good option for quick clearing. And 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 Hunter 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 Hunter 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 titan 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 hunter build to stay alieve longer.
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 Destiny 2 hunter 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 – BEST ENDGAME BUILD Warlock Destiny 2 D2

For our Warlock Build for best possible survivability and group support, different loadouts 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.

Playstyle – Hunter Build

This build is designed for burst damage first take care of the small enemies until the super is full and then really let it rip.
