Destiny 2 Titan Striker Subclass – How to get it?

To obtain the Striker Titan Subclass in Destiny 2, you’ll first have to get the Titan Relic, called Battered Gauntlet. The item won’t drop until you’re level 9 or so. After you do, start opening each and every chest you come across until you get the Battered Gauntlet relic. There’s some luck involved, since you can’t know which chest the relic will appear in. Some players got their relic as early as level 8, so your mileage may vary.

Once you get your hands on the Battered Gauntlet, your next task is to charge it. The game will tell you to engage in Public Events, so do just that. The more you kill, either in PVP or PVE, the better. After that’s done, your next destination is the European Dead Zone and the Shard of the Traveler. There will be enemies that you’ll have to clear out. There will be some places that will give you bits of story and get you hyped for your new subclass. Approach the Shard to unlock the Striker subclass for your Titan. Prepare to fight off a bunch of enemies, and use the light pillars to Super Charge to test out your newly-acquired powers.

How to Unlock Gunslinger Subclass for Destiny 2 Hunter?

You unlock the Destiny 2 Gunslinger subclass by finding a Hunter Relic (Melted Hand Cannon) in a chest, charging it up, then heading to the Shard of the Traveler. To be eligible to find the Hunter relic, though, you have to be around level 9. Some players have reported finding it at level 8 or level 10, but that might be a matter of luck. Either way, once you level up, start farming chests. Eventually, the Melted Hand Cannon Hunter relic will drop.

After that, you’ll be prompted to charge your relic by participating in Public Events. Be as active as possible, and keep killing. Whether it’s PVP or PVE, it doesn’t seem to matter. Once it’s charged, head back to EDZ and the Shard of the Traveler. There will be several areas of light that you can walk into and get little snippets of lore. There will be enemies on the way, so be careful. After you clear the area, go commune with the Shard and you’ll unlock the Gunslinger subclass.

A large wave of enemies will attack you, but there are several pillars of light strewn about, which Super Charge you when you walk into them. Use your new abilities to dispatch everything that moves, and your mission will be complete.

Voidwalker Destiny 2 Warlock Subclass – How to have it back?

The Voidwalker subclass for your Destiny 2 Warlock needs to be unlocked, and there are several steps in the process. First of all, you need to level up until you’re level 9. Then, explore around and / or be active in Public Events in order to find and open as many chests as you can. One of them will drop the Warlock subclass relic, the Warlock Armband. There’s no indication as to when it will drop, so be patient.

When you get the relic, you have to charge it. Go to Public Events and slaughter everything that stands in your way until the game prompts you to visit the Shard of the Traveler. Make your way back to the EDZ and deal with the enemies on your way. The game will give you some interesting stories as you go, if you choose to step into the areas bathed in white light. Once you’re at the Shard, defeat all the enemies and approach the Shard to unlock the Voidwalker subclass. Prepare for more trouble, as more enemies will start spawning. Luckily, you can Super Charge instantly by walking into light pillars. Smash them with your new moves, and the mission will be over.
