Why Should You Play Destiny 2 Void Warlock PvP Build?

The reason why you should play Void Warlock in PvP is the synergy of your abilities creates minimal downtime to utilize them from engagement to engagement.

The Void Warlock PvP build in Destiny 2 allows you to control the battlefield by strategically utilizing your abilities to weaken your opponents with your Void abilities. The Void Warlock inside of PvP can be used to control an area such as a control point or objective to ensure your team has the upper hand for each engagement. The Warlock Void Aspect, Child of the Old Gods, is perfect for area control by not only traveling to where your opponent is at, even if they are behind cover but also siphoning their energy from them and transferring it back to you. When using this Aspect, it ensures the downtime of your abilities is minimal.

In addition to the Child of the Old Gods’ capabilities to drain energy from your opponents and transfer it back to you, the other Aspect that will be utilized is Feed the Void. This Aspect gives you grenade energy back on each kill, along with restoring your health and resetting the Devour timer. Devour is a great Warlock Void ability that allows you to engage multiple targets due to the health restoration on kills and minimizing downtime for your grenades to secure defeats.

The Void Warlock PvP build relies on its abilities and how they all can tie together to secure the defeat. 

Nova Bomb: Cataclysm

Healing Rift

Burst Glide

Scatter Grenade

Pocket Singularity

Nova Bomb: Cataclysm – Nova Bomb travels slowly and seeks enemies. Detonations shatter into smaller seeker projectiles. Fire your weapon at the Nova Bomb to detonate it early. – Enemies can destroy this but it has insane tracking. Will destroy a Ward of Dawn and Well of Radiance. All super ability kills activate and extend devour. Flex: NOVA BOMB: CATACLYSM Hurl an explosive bolt of Void Light at a target, disintegrating those caught within its blast. Nova Bomb creates a singularity that pulls targets inward and continually damages those trapped inside. Can Destroy Titan Ward and those inside. Flex 2: NOVA WARP Step between dimensions to subvert the laws of psychics. Press sprint binding to teleport a short distance. Hold and release to unleash a deadly void eruption. – Great If you want multi kills however all roaming supers have longer cooldowns.

Healing Rift – Conjure a well of power that continuously heals those inside it. Pop your rift just before going around a corner, you can use the 3rd person view to see who is around the corner, and have cover while popping your rift

Burst Glide – Jump while airborne to activate Glide and start an airborne drift with a strong initial boost of speed. This is great for Warlock skating. You can flex to Blink but be careful as it is hard to master. I advise using Blink with Exotic Helmet Astrocyte Verse

Scatter Grenade – A grenade that splits into many submunitions and covers a large area with multiple explosions. Great for initiating a 1v2 situation, direct hits will defeat a Guardian. Paried with Echo of Expulsion Fragment, will injury anyone within 2m radius. Flex: Vortex Grenade: A grenade that creates a Vortex that pulls targets inward and continually damages those trapped inside. Great for area control or to keep enemies off of objectives. Flex 2: Axion Bolt: A bolt of Void light that forks on impact into smaller bolts that seek out targets. – Great for 1v1’s and holding a position

Pocket Singularity – Launch an unstable ball of Void energy that detonates when it nears a target, pushing them away from the blast and making them volatile. Great for stopping those Aggressive shotgun players that get to close.


The best Aspects are Child of the Old Gods and Feed the Void.  They pair well together because you can control the battlefield while synergizing your abilities.

Child of the Old Gods

Feed the Void

Child of the Old Gods – Cast your rift to create a Void Soul. When you damage a target with a weapon, your Void Soul flies to them and drains them, doing damage and weakening them. When a target is being drained, you are granted grenade and melee energy (if running healing rift) or health (if running empowering rift). Defeating a target who is being drained by your Void Soul grants class ability energy. When your Void Soul deals damage, it restores either melee and grenade energy (if running Healing Rift), or health (if running Empowering Rift) back to you. Defeating an enemy who is being drained grants Rift energy. Warlock main class ability is rift that will have a low cooldown so long as you are running high recovery stat.

Feed the Void – Defeat a target with a Void ability to activate Devour. While Devour is active, final blows restore health and extend Devour. This works with all your void abilities.


The best Fragments to run for the Void Warlock are Echo of Expulsion, Obscurity, Leeching, and Exchange. They provide an additional tier for stats and allow for multiple benefits for melee kills.

Echo of Expulsion

Echo of Obscurity

Echo of Leeching

Echo of Exchange

Echo of Expulsion : Void ability final blows cause targets to explode. +10 Intellect

Echo of Obscurity : Finisher final blows grant Invisibility. +10 Recovery This fragment is solo used to add +10 Recovery

Echo of Leeching : Melee Final blows start health regeneration for you and nearby allies +10 Resilience

Echo of Exchange : Melee final blows greant grenade energy


The best weapons for the Void Warlock PvP build are Osteo Striga, Brya’s Love, and Memory Interdict.  Osteo Striga pairs perfectly with your Exotic Armor piece, Necrotic Grips. It provides AOE damage to grouped-up Guardians, allowing for the perfect setup of multi-kills. It can also shut down a super. Brya’s Love is perfect for keeping distance from other Guardians while also controlling an avenue of approach. Memory Interdict is great for multi-kills. 

  • Osteo Striga Kinetic: Toxic Overflow, Screaming Swarm, Hammer-Forged Rifling, Accurized Rounds
  • Brya’s Love Energy: Keep Away, Explosive Payload, Polygone Rifling, Steady Rounds
  • Memory Interdict Power: Impulse Amplifier, Chain Reaction, Spike Grenades, Quick Launch
Weapon Perk 1 Perk 2

Osteo Striga

Toxic Overload

Screaming Swarm

Brya’s Love

Explosive Payload

Keep Away

Memory Interdict

Impulse Amplifier

Chain Reaction

Osteo Striga – Strong smg that can be crafted to have maximum range and effectiveness. Auto tracking sentient rounds, pairs perfectly with Necrotic Grips. It is craftable as well.

Brya's Love – Strong scout rifle that can keep enemies at a distance and flinch with Explosive Payload. Is craftable as well

Memory Interdict – Strong Grenade Launcher that has a wide AOE and rounds travel very fast with Impulse Amplifier. Can get mulitkills with grouped enemies with Chain Reaction as well

Some other great options are Thorn paired with a shotgun. Thorn also utilizes Necrotic Grip’s ability and spreads poison to nearby enemies. The downside is you have to be precise with your shots. For shotgun, I prefer Felwinters Lie. It has a consistent pellet spread and is obtainable by anyone at the kiosk in the Tower. The downside is the handling isn’t the best. For heavy I suggest Cataphract GL3, it has the same perks as Memory Interdict however this is a Trials of Osiris weapon so you have to go into end-game PvP to obtain it.

Exotic Armor

The best exotic armor for the Void Warlock PvP build is Necrotic Grips and Astrocyte Verse. Necrotic Grips pair with your Weapons of Sorrow, giving you the ability to spread poison from enemy to enemy. Astrocyte Verse gives you the versatility and mobility to engage quickly and disengage when needing to exit a fight. This is for more aggressive players.

Exotic Armor Mod

Necrotic Grip – Option 1 Damaging combatants posions them, dealing increasing damage over time. Defeating a poisoned combatant spreads the condition. Provides a moderate benefit to the airborne effectiveness stat of all Weapons of Sorrow. (Thorn and Osteo Striga)

Astrocyte Verse – Option 2 Blink further and move frequently, causing targets near you to become volatile. Weapon readies quickly out of Blink and radar remains up. While your Nova Warp Super is active, Dark Blink does not cost Super Energy. Provides a moderate benefit to the airborne effectiveness stat of all weapons.

Armor Stats

The stat priority for the Warlock is going to be Recovery. It is the stat that is tied to your class ability. Here’s a list of the best stat priority for the Destiny 2 Void Warlock PvP Build:

  1. Mobility: 20
  2. Resilience: 50
  3. Recovery: 100
  4. Discipline: 70
  5. Intellect: 70
  6. Strength: 70

Armor Mods

You want to achieve Tier 10 Recovery first, then add to other stats if able to. I suggest Targeting for helmet, Fastball and Loader for arms, Unflinching for chest, Holster and Innervation for legs, and triple bomber for class item


Gameplay Tips

The Void Warlock PvP build is built around your abilities and how they synergize together to keep minimal downtime while constantly healing yourself to stay in the fight during 1v2 or even 1v3 situations. You are going to want to play a bit passive to gauge where the enemy is going to go. In control pick a good spot to see where enemies would most likely funnel into while going to the objective. Popping your rift behind some cover where the actual rift is exposed just outside of it, will not only give you constant healing but also cover if you lose too much health. You will also conjure your Child of the Old Gods to track and siphon the first enemy you shoot. This gives you an ability energy back that you may have used already in a previous fight.

Osteo Striga rounds have to find their target, pre-firing around the corner before engaging allows the rounds to have less travel time to the enemy, allowing for the poison to sink in and disperse when you get the kill. From your Necrotic Grips, that poison will transfer from enemy to enemy, weakening them, and allowing for you to easily clean up the next defeat. Use your melee ability to knock back any unwanting shotgun rushers and make them Volatile, you can finish them off with an easy grenade to proc Devour. With Devour, every defeat will give you grenade energy and health back. Pairing this with Osteo Striga and its poison ability, you will be spreading poison and Devouring all of your opponents.
