Destiny 2 Solar Titan PvP Build

This guide gives weapons, exotics, and armor mods for a Destiny 2 Solar Titan PvP Build, intended for PvP players!

Destiny 2 Solar Titan

We are currently updating this build for Season of the Wish.  Check back soon with more details about the changes made to this build.

Why Should You Play Solar Titan in PvP?

The Destiny 2 Solar Titan PvP Build is designed around surviving. Solar Titans are known for their ability to survive in most situations, and PvP is just another aspect of that. You don’t have to get any fancy plays or chain anything to make this build work. Just throw up a barricade and use the sunspot it generates to give yourself that little boost that helps you win that 1v1 or survive that scrape that could have ended very badly.

Solar Titan PvP Playstyle

Play PvP as you normally would, but try to finish your enemies with your melee or your grenade to generate sunspots. These will grant you buffs to make your next engagement easier while they last. They don’t last very long but long enough to make a difference in a fight. In those situations where you are getting pummeled, find a spot to breath and throw up a barrier to generate sunspot. This could be that edge in a fight that you need. Don’t rely too much on them though. They don’t make you invincible. They are a tool to utilize not a survive anything button.


Some abilities, aspects and fragments need to be unlocked before use. In order to do that, 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.

Hammer of Sol

Rally Barricade

Catapult Lift

Solar Grenade

Hammer Strike

Hammer of Sol – This super edges out its competition with its ease of use. Its alternate, Burning Maul, can be effective in the right hands of course, but most people just jump or strafe out of the way to avoid it.

Rally Barricade – Titan barricades can give players a lot of wiggle room in lanes. Giving them a place to see their enemy but remain behind cover. Rally Barricade has a shorter charge time than Towering Barricade.

Catapult Lift – This really comes down to personal preference, so feel free to flex another lift if you prefer it.

Solar Grenade – A nice, easy to use grenade for most situations. Feel free to flex in Tripmine grenades if you find yourself on a map with lots of corners and lanes.

Hammer Strike – Hammer Strike is a nice easy to use melee option. If you are good with it, you could flex in the Throwing Hammer.


Roaring Flames

Sol Invictus

Roaring Flames – While our build isn’t necessarily built around this like its PvE brother, this is still a useful Aspect to use to get a buff when you do get solar ability kills. If you like Consecration, you can flex it in for this.

Sol Invictus – Sunspots. That is all. That’s the reason we want this. As a Solar Titan we always want sunspots. They heal us, grant us ability buffs, and hurt our enemies.


Ember of Solace

Ember of Singeing

Ember of Beams

Ember of Wonder

Ember of Solace : Makes the restoration effect that sunspots give us last longer.

Ember of Singeing : We will be scorching our enemies on occasion and this will help our barricade come back faster.

Ember of Beams : This helps our super hit targets more easily and also grants us a nice intellect buff.

Ember of Wonder : We are really just using this for the Resilience buff, so if you don’t need it flex it for Ember of Char for a Discipline bonus.


Weapon Perk 1 Perk 2

The Immortal (Adept)


Target Lock

Snorri FR5


High-Impact Reserves

The Wardcliff Coil

Mechanized Autoloader

Mad Scientist

The Immortal (Adept) – Obtained in Trials of Osiris. Currently one of the best PvP weapons in the game.

Snorri FR5 – Obtained from Legendary Engrams. A nice easy to use fusion rifle with great range.

The Wardcliff Coil – Obtained from Exotic Engrams. Essentially a free kill.

Exotic Armor

Exotic Armor Mod

Loreley Splendor Helm – Obtained from Legendary Lost Sectors. The perfect survival option. It won’t save you all the time, but it will give you an edge in one-on-one fights.
