Destiny 2 guide: Warlock Dawnblade subclass

The phoenix rises again … with a fire sword

In Destiny 2, Warlocks will no longer have access to the Sunsinger subclass from Destiny. Instead, the old solar subclass has been reimagined as the Dawnblade. This sword-wielding, team-buffing Warlock soars through the skies raining damage down on unsuspecting enemies.

The subclasses in Destiny 2 have been reworked. These are all of the abilities accessible by the Dawnblade Warlock . All of these descriptions are taken directly from the Destiny 2 beta.

  • Daybreak. Press L1+R1/ LB+RB to weave Solar Light into blades and smite your foes from the skies.

GRENADES

  • Solar grenade. A grenade that creates a flare of Solar Light which continuously damages enemies trapped inside.
  • Firebolt grenade. A grenade that unleashes bolts of Solar Light at nearby enemies.
  • Fusion grenade. An explosive grenade that causes bonus damage when attached to its target.

GLIDE

  • Strafe glide. Jump while airborne to activate Glide and start an airborne drift with strong directional control.
