Overview of the Invisible Hunter Build Destiny 2

Skill Tree – Hunter Build D2

To achieve this excellent survivability and longest invisibility it is important to choose the right subclass.

We use the way of the pathfinder to throw a smoke grenade with our melee ability that makes us and our allies invisible for exactly 7 seconds.

It is also very important that you equip the Gamblers dodge. This creates a wonderful synergy. You throw the smoke grenade to make yourself invisible, then go to an enemy that is not attacking you because you are invisible and use your dodge to get your smoke grenade back and make yourself invisible for another 7 seconds.

Synergies with exotic armour – Hunter Build D2

While you have Omnioculus equipped you will receive a second smoke grenade charge. In addition, you will receive melee energy for each ally you make invisible. Any ally you make invisible will receive additional restitence while holding the invisibility.

This synergizes great with the bottom tree nightstalker and the gamblers dodge. You can be invisible almost all the time as long as you stand together with a few allies.

Mods and Stats – Hunter Build D2

For hunters in general, I always recommend going for max mobility and recovery. In the best case 100 mobility 100 recovery 70 resilience and 70 intellect. Why exactly tier 7 for intellect and resilience?

With Tier 7 Resilience, many annoying snipers in Grandmaster Nightfalls no longer kill you One Hit even without having Sniper Resilience equipped on the chest. This allows me to play an element of Resilience adjusted to the activity and which enemies are in there.

Up to Tier 7 Intellect you get 23 seconds less cooldown per higher Intellect level. On Tier 8 but only 13 that is then such a small increase that it is almost no longer worth it to pay attention to it.

  • Mobility Stat Destiny 2 D2
  • Resilience Stat Destony2 D2
  • Recovery Stat Destiny 2 D2
  • Intellect Stat Destiny 2 D2

To get the maximum out of this build and at the same time play the best of the season I recommend the following mods:


  • Protective Light (Void)
  • Taking Charge
  • Particle Deconstruction (Class Item)
  • Powerful Friends (Arc)
  • Radiant Light (Arc)
  • Concussive Dampener (Chest)
  • Solar/Arc/Void Resistence (If youre not on Tier 7 Resillience use Sniper Resistence)  (Chest)

Fill Up with:

  • Mobility / Recovery / Resilience Mods to get as near to 100 / 100 / 70 as possible. (I do not recommend using Intellect Mods since they need 5 Energy)
  • Fusion Ammo finder (Helmet)
  • Recuperation (Legs)
  • Fusion Scavenger (Legs)
  • Helmet Armor Destiny2 D2
  • Gauntlets Armor Destiny2 D2
  • Chest Armor Destiny2 D2
  • Leg Armor Destiny2 D2
  • Class Item Destiny2 D2

Playstyle – Hunter Build

It is important that you have a smoke bomb ready at all times. To ensure this, always dodge when it offers the possibility near the enemy. To use Omnioculus as effectively as possible, always make yourself invisible near allies to get the extra melee energy. Since the super of this build is not really efficient in endgame activities, it is very good to play a special finisher and supply the whole team with special ammunition.
