Ah, the hunters. The longtime favorite of Destiny 2 developer Bungie. Whether they’re actually the preferred class is debatable, but what’s not up for debate is how downright nasty their Arc 3.0 revamp is. This build is all about being in the mix of enemies, staying amped up, and shaking it all up with a pulse.

What is the best bow construction for hunters?

Bow Abilities

  • Gathering Storm: Launch your Arc Staff forward, embedding it in surfaces or large targets and shaking nearby targets. Shortly after, a devastating bolt of lightning strikes the staff, overloading it with Arc energy. When overloaded, your staff fires lightning at nearby enemies.
  • Sniper Dodge: Dodge to perform an evasive maneuver with a steady hand. Dodging automatically reloads your weapon.
  • Combination Blow: A quick strike that temporarily increases your melee damage when you defeat a target, stacking three times. Defeating targets with this ability also fully recharges your class ability energy and restores a small amount of health.
  • Skip Grenade: A grenade that splits upon impact, creating multiple projectiles that seek targets.

Arch aspect

  • Flux State: Defeating a shaken target makes you amplified. While amped up, your dodge recharges faster, you are more resilient while dodging, and your reload speed is greatly increased.
  • Death Stream: After dodging, your next melee attack has increased lunge range, shakes the target, and creates a damaging aftershock. Damaging a Shaken target with melee attacks also blinds them.

Bow Fragments

  • Shock Spark: Your Arc Grenades shake targets.
  • Spark of Ions: Defeating a Shaken target creates an Ion Trace.
  • Discharging Spark: Arc Weapon Finishers have a chance to create an Ion Trace. -10 Strength.
  • Spark of Amplitude: Quickly defeating targets while amplified creates an Orb of Power.

  • Weapons
      • Thunderlord: Reign Havoc: Final hits with this weapon generate awesome thunderbolts from above. Strong against overload champions.
      • Riskrunner: When taking arc damage, this weapon becomes more powerful and resists incoming arc damage. Eliminations extend the time in this overcharged state.

    • Coldheart: This weapon fires a cold fusion powered arc laser, dealing more damage the longer it stays on a target.
    • Trinity Ghoul: Fires an arrow that splits when released. Aiming down sights and fully firing the bow decrease spread.
