Hunters are one of the strongest classes in the game due to their lower starting skill level required and access to one of the strongest survivability tools, Invisibility.

Hunter Build Features & Mechanics in Destiny 2

The following list presents all the essential Overpowered Hunter Build Mechanics and Features in Destiny 2:

  • Subclass: Void
  • Primary Stat: Mobility
  • Super: Moebius Quiver
  • Class Ability: Marksman’s Dodge
  • Jump: Triple Jump
  • Grenade: Vortex Grenade
  • Melee: Snare Bomb
  • Aspects: Vanishing Step, Stylish Executioner
  • Fragments: Persistence, Starvation, Cessation, Obscurity


The best abilities for the Void Hunter build are Marksman’s Dodge, Vortex Grenade, and Moebius Quiver. Our dodge will allow us to keep our gameplay loop moving while the grenades provide a large area of denial. The Moebius Quiver super debuffs and helps with add clear, making it a versatile tool for any hunter.

Here is a list of all the Hunter’s build recommended abilities in Destiny 2:

  • Marksman’s Dodge: This dodge will reload our current weapon and with our aspect it allows us to go invisible.
  • Vortex Grenade: The Vortex Grenade pulls enemies in and damages any enemies inside of it. This gives a large AOE damage grenade and is great for dealing with hordes of enemies.
  • Snare Bomb: This is a thrown melee that attaches to a surface until an enemy comes close. Once it’s triggered, it weakens any nearby enemies causing them to take more damage for a short time.
  • Moebius Quiver: This super allows you to cast two volleys of three areas that will seek enemies. Once enemies walk in range or are hit, they are made volatile and are debuffed causing them to take more damage.

Our Marksman’s Dodge, which is essential for our exotic, allows us to keep our gameplay loop moving by reloading our weapon and causing us to go invisible. The Vortex grenades provide a large area denial and AOE damage. The Moebius Quiver super, thanks to its debuff and ability to make enemies volatile, is excellent for add clear, especially when paired with our exotic armor.


Destiny 2 Void Hunter Aspects and Fragments

The best aspects of the Void Hunter build are the Vanishing Step and Stylish Executioner. They allow for constant invisilibilty uptimes which are required for the build to operate at optimal levels.

Here is a list of all the Hunter’s build recommended aspects in Destiny 2:

  • Vanishing Step: This aspect allows our dodge to make us invisible.
  • Stylish Executioner: After defeating a void debuffed target, this aspect makes us invisible and gives us Truesight. It also lets our next melee attack while invisible weakens targets.

Vanishing Step is an amazing tool for this build as it not only gives us invisibility, one of the strongest survivability statuses in the game, but it goes hand-in-hand with our exotic. Moreover, Stylish Executioner grants invisibility and with our exotic allows us constant invisibility and volatile rounds.


The best fragments for the void hunter build are Persistence, Starvation, Cessation, and Obscurity. These provide useful buffs and survivability tools while pairing with other features of the build.

Here is a list of all the Hunter’s build recommended fragments in Destiny 2:

  • Echo of Persistence: Invisibility, Overshield, and Devour buffs applied to you are now longer durations.
  • Echo of Starvation: Collecting an orb of power or void breech grants Devour.
  • Echo of Cessation: Finishers cause an explosion of void damage that makes nearby enemies volatile. Also, defeating volatile targets creates a void breech.
  • Echo of Obscurity: Finishers grant invisibility.

Overall, Echo of Persistence gives us an extension on the powerful buffs we are already generating giving us more uptime. Echo of Starvation grants us the incredibly powerful devour, which heals us and gives us grenade energy for every kill. Echo of Cessation makes enemies volatile, giving us crazy and clear potential. Also, it generates void breeches which grant grenade energy and devour when picked up. Echo of Obscurity is another access to invisibility and pairs well with our exotic armor.


The best weapons for the Hunter Build are Witherhoard, Funnelweb, and Commemoration. Witherhoard is one of the strongest exotic weapons in the game, offering either a large AoE damage circle or single-target damage over time depending on whether you hit an enemy directly. Funnelweb, a fast-firing void SMG, can rapidly spread volatility to enemies, clearing out entire rooms with ease. Commemoration is a void LMG that provides great single-target damage and add clear, all while having a fantastic ammo economy.

Here’s a list of the best weapon loadout for the Overpowered Hunter Build:

  • Kinetic: Witherhoard- Exotic special ammo grenade launcher
  • Energy: Funnelweb- Subsistence or Pulse Monitor, Frenzy or Adrenaline Junkie
  • Heavy: Commemoration– Reconstruction or Subsistence, Killing Tally or Firing Line.

Alternatively, you can swap out any of the weapons with other void energy weapons. However, some recommended substitutions for kinetic weapons are New Pacific Epitaph, Riptide, and Succession. Also, some fill-in weapons for the energy slot are Unforgiven, Veles-X, Under Your Skin, or Collective Obligation. Lastly, some heavy weapon replacements can be Braytech Osprey, Retrofit Escapade, or The Other Half.

Exotic Armor

Destiny 2 Gyrfalcon's Hauberk

The best exotic armor for the void hunter build is Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk.  This exotic chest piece grants our void weapons volatile rounds after leaving invisibility. Also while invisible and defeating a combatant with a finisher, all our weapons will gain a damage boost. After performing a finisher, we and nearby allies gain improved class ability regeneration, as well as a reserve over the shield that is used upon activating a class ability. Since our focus is void weapons as our primary and heavy weapons of choice, we will have massive add clear with the volatile rounds granted from the chest piece. Our aspects, fragments, and mods all center around invisibility and finishing enemies keeping up the buffs from the chest piece as much as possible. This allows for a consistent gameplay loop and constant uptimes on damage buffs, add clear, and survivability tools.

Hunter Gameplay Tips

To fully utilize this build, focus on its primary survivability buff, Invisibility.

It’s just as important to be out of invisibility as it is to be invisible. While invisible, we are nearly invincible, making it very difficult for enemies to hurt us. After leaving invisibility, we gain access to volatile rounds and can clear entire rooms of enemies. Balancing this interaction is the most important part of understanding and perfecting this build. Should you run into danger, you have a few options for survival: dodging for invisibility, killing an enemy to gain devour to heal you, or finishing an enemy while invisible to gain a void over the shield.

Moreover, it’s important to not horde our abilities waiting for the absolute opportune moment to use them. We have multiple ways to regenerate our abilities so it’s better to use than to die with them. Use grenades and melees whenever they are available to assist with killing enemies as they work in tandem with our build. Use Marksman’s Dodge to reload your weapons and become invisible, which plays into your exotic perk. Consequently, you will be able to deal damage continuously without reloading. Use your super whenever you encounter a boss, a large health enemy, or when overwhelmed with adds, especially when outnumbered.
