An Arcstrider.

The Arcstrider is an Arc-based Hunter subclass that became available in Destiny 2. Arcstriders possess a lightning staff that can be swung rapidly at opponents for massive Arc damage.[1]


Set 1 - Grenades[edit]

  • Skip grenade - A grenade which splits on impact, creating multiple projectiles which seek enemies.
  • Flux Grenade - An explosive grenade which deals additional damage when attached to enemies.
  • Arcbolt Grenade - A grenade that chains bolts of lightning to nearby enemies.

Set 2 - Movement[edit]

  • High Jump - Upgrades Double Jump with even greater height.
  • Strafe Jump - Upgrades Double Jump with better directional control while in the air.
  • Triple Jump - Upgrades Double Jump with a third jump.

Set 3 - Super[edit]

  • Arc Staff - Conjure a staff infused with Arc electricity that can be used to rapidly slice enemies while maneuvering around the battlefield.

Set 4 - Class Abilities[edit]

  • Marksman Dodge - Automatically reload your equipped weapon while dodging
  • Gambler’s Dodge - Dodging near enemies generates Melee energy

Set 5 - Passive Path 1: Way Of The Warrior[edit]

  • Combat Flow - Melee kills recharge your dodge skill
  • Deadly Reach - Dodging temporarily increases melee range
  • Lethal Current - Arc Staff attacks hit twice after dodging
  • Combination Blow - Kill an enemy with this melee ability to trigger health regeneration and increase your melee damage temporarily

Set 6 - Passive Path 2: Way Of The Wind[edit]

  • Disorienting Blow - Striking an enemy with this debilitating melee attack disorients the target. Killing a target with Disorienting Blow instantly recharges it.
  • Focused Breathing - Sprinting reduces your dodge cooldown. Increased maximum sprint speed
  • Battle Meditation - When critically wounded, melee and grenades recharge drastically faster
  • Lightning Reflexes - Take less damage while dodging when Arc Staff is active

Set 7 - Passive Path 3: Way of the Current[edit]

  • Whirlwhind Guard - A variation of Arc Staff which allows the staff to be spun in a circular motion, deflecting incoming projectiles. Damage with deflected projectiles increases Arc Staff damage by three times.
  • Tempest Strike - Sliding and using a melee attack causes the player to uppercut with the arc staff, dealing arc damage in a line towards enemies.
  • Lightning Weave - Melee hits increase reload speed.
  • Ebb and Flow - Arc ability damage electrifies enemy targets, and punching electrified targets disorients them, as well as giving grenade, melee, and dodge energy.
