5 Things We Are Looking Forward to in Destiny 2: Lightfall

by Troy Gloski 17 Feb 2023

We can't wait to play it! Also, special items inside...

Destiny 2: Lightfall is fast approaching, and there are lots of new things to be excited about. New Exotic Weapons, Strand, a new raid, and more, alongside a special collaboration with SteelSeries.

It's time to face the Shadow Legion, Guardian. Destiny 2: Lightfall comes with new challenges, but also new powers. As you head to the secret and highly advanced city of Neomuna, you'll encounter Tormentors and aid the Cloud Striders.

Let's take a look at what exciting new features are coming to Destiny 2: Lightfall. But before we do, check out what we have in store for Destiny fans:

Face overwhelming odds and master the power of the Strand, aided by the Limited Edition Destiny 2: Lightfall collection from SteelSeries and KontrolFreek.

Now, let's talk about the game.

Unlocking Strand

The Strand is central to the new Destiny 2 expansion. Mastering it is key to defeating your foes. With it, you'll be able to create objects and summon by Weaving it. You can even Tangle or Suspend enemies to easily finish them off with your arsenal. It adds a host of new tactical options to dispatch your enemies.

You'll have the power to Sever your enemies to increase the damage that they take; conversely, Strand can also grant you Woven Mail to increase your protection. Those aspects will certainly be key throughout Lightfall.

Let's be real, though. The coolest Strand ability is going to be the grappling hook. It's only going to be a blast to traverse through Neomuna, but also it will be useful in combat. You can grapple onto a woven Tangle which will also refund your grenade. This sounds like a great offense-defense combo that's going to feel awesome to pull off.

Destiny 2: Lightfall Subclasses


New Subclasses are coming to the Warlock, Hunter, and Titan. Your powers expand with new tactical options for each.

  • Titan: Berserker: Tackle enemies head on by leaping in and tearing them apart with powerful Bladefury claws, having armor enhanced with Woven Mail. Control the battlefield with Drengr's Lash which suspends enemies.
  • Warlock: Broodweaver: Use telekinetic sorcery to weave a Needlestorm to damage foes and summon Threadlings. Empower grenades with qualities specific to the Broodweaver.
  • Hunter: Threadrunner: Destroy the opposition with graceful movements, such as Silkstrike, which uses a combo of a grappling hook and rope dart. You can even create grappling points for your teammates with Widow's Silk.

Who doesn't love new weapons? It's time to amp up your arsenal with Cloud Strider technology and brand new Exotic Weapons.

  • Abeyant Leap (Titan legs): Barricade spawns additional lashes
  • Cyrtararchne’s Façade (Hunter helmet): Grapple gives woven mail
  • Deterministic Chaos (Void machine gun): Rhythmic debuffs
  • Final Warning (Strand sidearm): Charged tracking rounds
  • Quicksilver Storm (kinetic auto rifle): Grenades create tangles on kills
  • Swarmers (Warlock legs): Destroying tangles spawns threadlings
  • Winterbite (Stasis glaive): Freezes enemies with frost orbs

New Destiny 2 Campaign with Legendary Difficulty

While we can't wait to explore Neptune's capital city, Neomuna, we're also eagerly awaiting the next campaign to see how the story unfolds. Building on the success of The Witch Queen expansion, Lightfall's story looks just as, or even more, exciting.

Another important aspect is the Legendary difficulty. Challenge yourself to earn rewards of an even higher tier. Prepare yourself for the upcoming Raids, which will open on March 10th!

More Loadouts... Lots More Loadouts!

As per tradition, expect a huge slew of gameplay improvements and refinements. Among them is the new Guardian Ranks system, which guides players with a progression and reputation system. There are also Commendations, which are awards given to your squadmates after completing an activity. Give them that thumbs up!

However, one of the biggest changes are the loadouts updates. You can unlock up to 10 loadouts in Destiny 2: Lightfall! It will be easier than ever to have the perfect loadout for whatever activity you're planning on conquering. We can't wait to tinker and create those.

There's so much to be excited about for Destiny 2: Lightfall's launch on February 28th, we can't possibly squeeze everything into this list. In the meantime, make sure to check out the SteelSeries x KontrolFreek Destiny 2 Lightfall Limited Edition Collection for some Lightfall-themed items!
