Why Should You Play Arc Titan in Solo Content?

This Destiny 2 Arc Titan Solo Build is for those players who are looking to put out some crazy damage numbers. Do you enjoy spamming abilities? Do you want to make Shaxx proud and throw as many grenades as titanly possible? Then look no further than this build. Your damage output will be so high that your teammates may tell you to slow down so they can make sure to get those finishers on champions. This has a very aggressive playstyle that just is the ultimate Titan power fantasy. Its very similar to our group PvE end game build because its just so effective.

Arc Titan Solo Playstyle

The build is all about powering up our abilities using Heart of Inmost Light while simultaneously boosting the uptime of our abilities to make the damage even more insane. The HoIL loop for this build is simple, class ability, melee, grenade, repeat. Run around causing as much mayhem as possible creating ionic traces and picking them up to make your abilities come back even faster.


Some abilities, aspects and fragments need to be unlocked before use. In order to do that for Strand subclasses, Destiny 2 players need to visit Ikora in the Tower and do the related quest or purchase them from her. Lastly, if you bought new aspects and fragments don’t forget to “meditate”. Simply click the “meditate” option on the table next to Ikora.



Catapult Lift

Pulse Grenade


Thundercrash – Huge burst damage super.

Thruster – Take this over the other options for the shorter cool down.

Catapult Lift – This choice really comes down to personal preference. Feel free to flex this out for another lift.

Pulse Grenade – Pulse Grenades can Jolt targets, which is ridiculously powerful.

Thunderclap – This melee ability can cause a huge amount of damage to a single target or take out a large group of enemies.


Touch of Thunder


Touch of Thunder – This aspect increases the effectiveness of our grenades so much

Knockout – You’re going to be critically wounding and breaking shields in PvE a lot. So again granting ourselves passive benefits for doing what we are doing anyway just makes sense. Plus using our melee will make us amplified and power up our other abilities.


Spark of Amplitude

Spark of Shock

Spark of Magnitude

Spark of Ions

Spark of Amplitude : Another way of generating orbs of power, feeding out abilities.

Spark of Shock : Jolt is just a powerful ability that causes large groups of enemies to simply be destroyed.

Spark of Magnitude : Extended our pulse grenade allows it to potentially jolt more targets.

Spark of Ions : Helps us generate Ionic Traces which is ridiculously handy for this build.

Firing Line

New Pacific Epitaph – Acquired from the Ghost of the Deep Dungeon. Currently the only Wave-Frame that can go in the kinetic slot.

Centrifuse – Obtained from the Season of the Deep Season Pass. A powerful Arc Primary.

Commemoration – Obtained from the Deepstone Crypt raid. A fantastic machine gun effective at boss damage and minor combatant clearing.

Primeval’s Torment

Cold Comfort

Envious Assassin

Bait and Switch

Witherhoard – Obtained at the Monument to Lost Lights. Requires Shadowkeep Expansion. One of the better weapons in the game, as its one of the few that allows for damage over time.

IKELOS_SMG_v1.0.3 – Obtained sometimes from Banshee-44’s revolving weapons. A powerful Arc primary.

Cold Comfort – Obtained from the Ghost of the Deep dungeon. The absolute king of burst damage, this launcher can fire multiple rockets under the right circumstances.

Exotic Armor

Exotic Armor Mod

Heart of Inmost Light – Preferred Option. Obtained after completing Step 2 or the “Into the Abyss” Quest from Ikora or dropped in Legendary Lost Sectors. Heart is one of the single best Titan Exotics, and works ridiculously effectively with Arc builds.

Cuirass of the Falling Star – Secondary Option. Obtained from Legendary Lost Sectors. Turns our Thundercrash into a huge burst damage attack. In content where gear can be changed, players will often hot swap this armor piece in, cast their super, and then swap back.
