Destiny 2 Strand Titan PvP Build

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

Destiny 2 Strand 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 Strand Titan in PvE?

While not the most META choice available, Strand Titan is no slouch in PvP. Suspending Targets is powerful, taking them out of combat and easy targets. The ability to generate Woven Mail is also very handy, making your entire teams survivability much better.

Strand Titan PvP Playstyle

Berserkers are all about suspending their targets in PvP. Suspension will totally disorient an enemy, throwing them into third person and lifting them in the air for a second or two. This allows Strand Titans to have crazy map control and force opponents into situations they would otherwise avoid.


Some abilities, aspects and fragments need to be unlocked before use. In order to do that for Strand subclasses, Destiny 2 players must own the Ligthfall expansion and complete the entire main campaign to get access to the subclass. Additionally, to unlock Strand grenades, aspects, and fragments, players must buy them from the special vendor, the Pouka Pond, with Strand meditations. The full guide can be FOUND HERE for step-by-step details.


Rally Barricade

Catapult Lift

Shackle Grenade

Frenzied Blade

Bladefury – Currently the only option for Strand Super. A powerful roaming option in PvP.

Rally Barricade – Take this over Towering Barricade for the shorter cool down. Its passive benefits are handy as well.

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

Shackle Grenade – Ridiculously important for the build. This suspends our enemies and the build is built around that.

Frenzied Blade – Currently the only option for Strand Melee Abilities. Not as powerful as other Titan melee’s, but an effective cleanup option.


Into the Fray

Drengr’s Lash

Into the Fray – A nice support fragment for granting survivability to our allies and ourselves.

Drengr's Lash – A cornerstone of our build. Our build will not work without it. Being able to suspend with our class ability creates a nice suspension loop.


Thread of Mind

Thread of Continuity

Thread of Generation

Thread of Ascent

Thread of Mind : Allows the generation of class ability energy, feeding our ability to suspend.

Thread of Continuity : Another buff to suspension that is too good to pass up.

Thread of Generation : Allows for generation of grenade ability energy, feeding our ability to suspend.

Thread of Ascent : Since we are throwing grenades often, this is a nice passive benefit.


SMG Loadout

Weapon Perk 1 Perk 2

The Immortal (Adept)


Target Lock


Snapshot Sights

Moving Target

Red Herring

Tracking Module

Killing Wind

The Immortal (Adept) – Acquired in Trials of Osiris. Currently one of the most effective weapons for PvP in the game.

Beloved – Obtained sometimes from Banshee-44’s revolving weapons. This is a decent sniper rifle for PvP because of its generous aim assistance.

Red Herring – Obtained from activities on Savathun’s Throne World. Rocket Launchers are basically just free kills in PvP.

Pulse Rifle Loadout

Weapon Perk 1 Perk 2

No Time to Explain


Rewind Again

Matador 64

Threat Detector

Opening Shot

Wendigo GL3 (Adept)

Chain Reaction


No Time to Explain – Obtained from the Exo Stranger after completing the Beyond Light expansion campaign. A great PvP option with a forgiving TTK.

Matador 64 – Obtained from the Grasp of Avarice dungeon. A great Shotgun with near perfect perks for PvP.

Wendigo GL3 (Adept) – Obtained from Nightfalls. The Adept version can be obtained from Grandmaster Nightfalls on certain weeks.

Exotic Armor

Exotic Armor Mod

Abeyant Leap – Best Option. Can be obtained at the end of the Lightfall Campaign or dropped in Legendary Lost Sectors. Makes suspending targets so much more effective.

Heart of Inmost Light – Secondary Option. Obtained after completing Step 2 or the “Into the Abyss” Quest from Ikora or dropped in Legendary Lost Sectors. Not as effective as Abeyant Leap, but Heart works with most Titan subclasses effectively.
