Destiny’s theme has always been about becoming a legend, and if there’s one thing that all Titan’s know, it’s that playing as a Striker will make you feel like a legend. Whether you want to throw punches in the Crucible or punch your way through the Wrath of the Machine Raid, the Striker is the best Titan subclass in Destiny.
The Striker Titan has two of the strongest grenades in the game with two very different purposes, the Lightning Grenade and the Flashbang Grenade. Being able to switch between and effectively use these two grenades makes the Striker one of the deadliest classes in Crucible.
If you prefer a higher level of utility, the Flashbang Grenade is ideal. The Flashbang Grenade is one of the few items in the game that can completely blind an opponent. In Crucible and PvE, a well-thrown Flashbang Grenade can give you the precious seconds needed to reposition yourself to better attack, or flee from, an enemy.
Despite the Titan’s short arms, their fists pack quite the punch and there’s no better proof of this than the Striker’s Storm Fist. Storm Fist already does high base damage, but when coupled with any one of the modifiers the usefulness of the humble punch increases. Apply Overload and your punches have a chance to reset Storm Fist’s cooldown. Or Amplify, where Storm Fist kills significantly reduces your Super cooldown. The benefits of Amplify are apparent in Crucible and PvE play where having your Super available can mean a win.
There are only 2 perks that a Striker Titan wants to know about in the current Destiny meta, and they are Shoulder Charge and Transfusion. Shoulder Charge is not only a one-hit kill, it also makes you extremely fast. Opponents won’t know how to react when you close the gap with Shoulder Charge and kill them with a Shotgun. Transfusion makes kills with Storm Fist or Shoulder Charge immediately begin health regeneration. Chances are you’ve been in a situation where a Shoulder Charge, despite earning you a kill, has left you in a vulnerable position. Transfusion will help you if you overextend trying to earn that kill. Your health will regenerate, affording you more time to kill the other enemies or retreat.
Fist of Havoc makes Hunters cry and Warlocks scream in anger. The Striker’s Fist of Havoc is the ultimate counter to other Supers with its incredible damage output and damage resistance during
The Fist of Havoc has some interesting modifiers with two that are the most useful, Aftermath and Shockwave.
