Just a few days ago, Bungie gave us one of the first new subclasses being introduced in Destiny 2’s upcoming Beyond Light expansion with the Warlock Shadebinder. Today, the studio has revealed the Destiny 2 Titan Behemoth class! There’s gameplay and a class overview as well.
Control the ground, control the fight. The Behemoth can use their Stasis abilities to create Stasis crystals that can be both defensively minded – such as walls to block enemies and gunfire – or offensively, by using crystals to freeze enemies.
With the Behemoth, we wanted to put an emphasis on the ability to use Stasis to create crystals that can alter the battle by changing the very ground beneath your feet. Control the ground, control the fight. As a result, the Behemoth can use their Stasis abilities defensively – such as creating crystalline walls to block enemies and gunfire – or offensively, by using crystals to freeze enemies.The Titan Behemoth can unleash a powerful melee attack known as the Shiver Strike. Here, the Titan lunges forward, launched by a Stasis explosion at their feet to propel them towards an enemy. While in mid-air, they summon a Stasis gauntlet that covers their fist and then slam into their foe, sending them careening backwards and slowing nearby enemies.
Here’s a look the Destiny 2 Titan Behemoth abilities and aspects unique to the character.
The Behemoth’s Super, Glacial Quake, begins with the Titan forming a mighty gauntlet on their fist. They can then slam the gauntlet into the ground, sending out shockwaves that form Stasis crystals which freeze nearby enemies. Covered in an armor of Stasis crystals, the Titan temporarily becomes an unstoppable wrecking machine, able to jump higher, faster, and farther, all while blasting enemies with greatly increased melee attacks.
If frozen enemies are the bowling pins, think of the Titan Behemoth during their Glacial Quake Super as the bowling ball, able to instantly shatter enemies as they sprint or slide through them. Running amok in a crowd of bad guys and shattering them like a perfect tenpin strike is a fine strategy but there’s a degree of subtlety there too, if you want it. For example, you can cancel out of a slide into a massive Stasis-powered leap, only to cancel that just at the right moment and direct the Behemoth downward into a devastating slam. So punch if you must, but know that Stasis has plenty more to offer you, Titan.
Next week, it’ll be the Hunter’s turn as we get a look at the Hunter Revenant subclass coming in Beyond Light.
