Darkblades are a formidable variant of Knight.

Overview[edit]

Darkblades were first introduced in Destiny in the form of Alak-Hul, the Darkblade, a unique Strike boss fought at the end of The Sunless Cell. Weaker versions of Alak-Hul were carried over into Destiny 2 as mini-bosses, such as the Abyssal Champion. They are visually identical to Alak-Hul, except for a glowing line on their helmets similar to those of Destiny 2's Knights, and mechanically similar.

Gameplay[edit]

Darkblades will advance slowly towards the player and attempt to crush them with their axes. Like Alak-Hul, their helmets will break off when they take enough damage, causing them to become enraged and begin rushing at the player in a straight line. While they are easy to outmaneuver, one must be mindful of their surroundings to avoid being cornered while doing so.
