Titan Berserker casting Bladefury
The flash of a drawn blade in their eyes, the flash of fury in yours.

The Berserker is a Strand-based Titan subclass featured in the Lightfall expansion in Destiny 2.


Tapping into the raw, untamed power of Strand, Titan Berserkers use their paracausal-weaving abilities for unleashing maximum carnage and making woven mail armor for themselves and their allies. They create Strand claws for closing the distance with in-your-face attacks that can sever enemies en masse before they are permanently unwoven from existence. With their super, Berserkers can hurl projectiles of Strand from their claws that seek out enemies, suspending and damaging them on impact. The Titan also possesses additional melee abilities to unravel combatants while airborne and buff their allies with a woven banner of war.[1]

She hears the sharp sound of small rocks grinding beneath her boots. Vibrant, pulsating green drips down her arms and morphs into sharp blades that can rip through armor with ease.

Her body is her own, each breath extends not only to her lungs but also to every muscle. In the past, she used it while meditating. Now, it's for preparation. The anticipation between the ticks of the second hand from an old Earth clock.

The scent of sweat reaches her from fifty paces away; it comes in bursts of gruesome vibrance. Her enemy reeks of hubris, impatience, and not enough fear for her taste. Would she allow a snarl to escape her lips?

One final anticipatory breath.

She lunges.


Berserker subclass background


  • Bladefury: Create claws out of Strand. While your super is active:
    • Light Attack: Swing the claws to sever targets. Killing targets with a light attack increases the speed of the next attack and builds up energy for a heavy attack.
    • Heavy Attack: Perform an uppercut attack that suspends target caught in the shockwave's path with your claws.


  • Grapple: Weave a grappling hook, and quickly pull yourself forward. Grappling to a Tangle immediately recharges your grenade energy. During and shortly after grappling, your melee attack deals area damage and unravels targets.
  • Threadling Grenade: A woven projectile that reweaves itself into Threadlings while in flight.
  • Shackle Grenade: A thrown weapon of weighted Strand matter that detonates on impact, suspending targets and creating additional suspending subprojectiles.


  • Frenzied Blade: Unleash claws that severs targets. Can be used up to 3 times.


  • Catapult Lift: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air with a strong initial burst of momentum.
  • High Lift: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air to greater heights.
  • Strafe Lift: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air with strong directional control.

Class Abilities[edit]

  • Towering Barricade: Create a large barrier that can be used to reinforce a position with cover from enemy fire.
  • Rally Barricade: Create a small barrier that you can peek over while aiming down sights and that increases reload speed for your equipped when you stand behind it.


  • Into the Fray (An aged pauldron, dented and scarred. Be the front line.): Destroying a Tangle or casting your Super grants Woven Mail for nearby allies. While you have Woven Mail, your melee regeneration rate is increased. Fragment Slots (2)
  • Drengr’s Lash (An ancient war horn, herald of countless battles. Let them know you're coming.): Activate your class ability to create a ripple that travels along the ground, suspending and damaging targets it hits. Fragment Slots (2)
  • Flechette Storm (Shards of a broken blade, memento of a duel long won. Yours will not share its fate.): While sliding, activate your charged melee ability to leap into the air, knocking nearby targets away and dealing damage. While airborne, activate your charged melee again to launch a cluster of damaging, unraveling projectiles. Repeatedly activating melee will chain additional throws. Fragment Slots (2)
  • Banner of War (A tattered banner, every tear and faded stitch a lesson you will not forget. As long as it still waves, you rise to meet any challenge.): Defeat a target with a melee attack, finisher, or Sword to raise a Banner of War that pulses with energy, periodically healing nearby allies and increasing melee and Sword damage. Targets defeated by you and nearby allies charge the banner, increasing the speed of its pulses. Fragment Slots (2)
