Destiny 2: Facet of Courage – Prismatic Subclass Fragment

Prismatic Subclass offers 21 fragments for all three classes in Destiny 2, including the Facet of Courage.

Destiny 2 - Facet of Courage – Prismatic Subclass Fragment

Players gain access to the new Prismatic subclass with the Final Shape expansion. Firstly, it’s unique and combines specific class abilities for different damage types. Using dark and light abilities, buffs or debuffs fill two corresponding meters, and once they are fully charged, your character enters the special state called Transcendence. Moreover, Transcendence functions like a mini super and busts your defense and offensive capabilities.

Once you unlock a Facet of Courage Prismatic Fragment, it becomes available for all your characters.

Facet of Courage in Destiny 2

The facet of Courage is a new fragment in the Prismatic subclass introduced with the Final Shape expansion in Destiny 2. Here’s an in-depth look at what this fragment does, its benefits, and how it can be effectively used in different builds and gear setups.

The Facet of Courage fragment grants the following effects:

  • Your Light abilities deal increased damage to targets afflicted with Darkness debuffs.
  • +10 Discipline

Benefits and Usage

The Facet of Courage is an excellent fragment for players who want to maximize their damage output from the interplay between Light and Darkness abilities. The discipline bonus helps with quicker grenade recharge, improving the ability uptime.

For optimal use of the Facet of Courage, you should focus on applying Darkness debuffs (Strand and Stasis) to targets using abilities or weapons with Stasis or Strand effects. Following up with Light abilities to deal increased damage to these debuffed targets will maximize the effectiveness of this fragment. This is particularly useful in challenging PvE content such as Nightfalls, Raids, and high-level activities.


Hunters can use this fragment to combine Light abilities such as Storm’s Edge, Golden Gun, or Shadowshot with Darkness debuffs from Stasis grenades or abilities.


Destiny 2: All Titan Prismatic Subclass Abilities

Titans benefit from the Facet of Courage by pairing their powerful Light abilities like Thundercrash, Hammer of Sol, or Twilight Arsenal with Darkness debuffs applied by Stasis or Strand abilities.


You can exploit this fragment by combining warlock Light abilities like Stormtrance, Song of Flame, or Nova Bomb with Darkness debuffs from Stasis or Strand abilities. Warlocks can benefit the most from this fragment by eliminating debuffed targets and maintaining control over the battlefield.

Gear Synergies

To maximize the potential of the Facet of Courage, consider the following gear and mods:

  • Hunters: Exotics like Orpheus Rig (increases the number of enemies tethered by Shadowshot) can help apply more Darkness debuffs, boosting the damage potential of Light abilities. Shards of Galanor (increases Super energy gain from hits and kills with Blade Barrage) can increase damage output.
  • Titans: Exotics like Heart of Inmost Light (empowers abilities after using a grenade, melee, or Barricade) can provide enhanced ability uptime and damage. Dunemarchers (increases sprint speed and chain melee damage) can help Titans close the gap and apply debuffs more effectively.
  • Warlocks: Exotics like The Stag (grants Rift energy when critically wounded) can aid in sustaining ability usage and applying Darkness debuffs.
