The Sigil of the Striker

"The dream of the City. Its Walls keep it together. Its spears—the Strikers—are what keep it alive."
Commander Zavala

Striker is an Arc-based Titan subclass featured in Destiny and Destiny 2. This subclass of Titan is associated with pure offense and facing the enemy head-on and at melee range.

Notable Strikers


You'd think the problem with showing up empty-handed to a gunfight would be the bullets. And yes, turning a gunfight into a fistfight is an awful lot of work, tactically speaking, but really I just don't have the patience for all the hiding, and all the fumbling for batteries or flechettes or whatever when it's time to reload, which seems to happen the moment I start to enjoy myself.

Hiding and reloading. Hiding and reloading. Sounds amazing; you all have fun. My fists don't need reloading.

Back to the problem. The problem with fists is hygiene. Paint your armor fist to shoulder in alien ichor, toxic robotic lubricant, and ashes. Now take a good look at yourself. That's the only reason I envy the hiders and the reloaders. They get to stay clean.
