Today, Bungie’s Destiny 2 showcase revealed a ton of information, such as the latest season, the game’s future expansion, and the new Warden subclass. This new subclass, called Strand, appears in cutscenes armed by the various Guardian classes, serving as their tools to traverse Neptune’s secret city of Neomuna in an action-packed trailer that shows Guardians running through this metropolis against Calus’ Shadow Legion.

According to the developers, this subclass will be similar to the awakening of a “third eye” for Guardians and will take different forms depending on the class. For Warlocks, these new powers will be true telekinetic abilities, with the Supercharged technique being a barrage of green missiles that will obliterate your enemies. Hunters, on the other hand, will use Strand as a proper slashing weapon accompanied by acrobatic moves, their Supersport having an appearance akin to a Kyoketsu shoge, a blade attached to the end of a string.

Finally, Titans will channel this newfound energy into two dual-wielding blades attached to their arms, attacking in a spiraling, violent motion befitting this bulky class.

However, the most innovative form that Strand’s power will take doesn’t exactly stem from his offensive abilities, but rather as a grappling hook, a tool that’s sure to bring a mobility boost to any Warden looking to travel through Neptune’s Neomuna city and theirs Skyscraper landscape in the upcoming expansion for Destiny 2, Lightfall, coming to PC and consoles next February.
