Ahead of the launch of the upcoming expansion, Destiny 2: Forsaken, Bungie has revealed all of the new super abilities heading to their game. There’s one new super for every subclass of Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters, meaning everyone has a brand new ability to use against the enemies that feature in the update.
Speaking of enemies, the update adds a new faction in the form of the Scorn. There’s also new exotic weapons, a new map for upcoming mode Gambit, and plenty more hidden away in the expansion, which is set to launch later this year.

Courtesy of GameInformer (via Gamerant) we now know what exactly each of those nine new supers will do. They’re a pretty mad bunch, with fire tornadoes and void explosions and electricity bolts and all sorts. That’s not too surprising though - not only do you need something to help turn the tide in your fight against new enemies the Scorn, but Bungie need something to encourage some of Destiny’s lapsed players back to the game.
Anyway, on to those supers. Titan Strikers have Banner Shield, which absorbs enemy attacks. Sunbreakers get a siege hammer, creating a flaming maul that leaves flame tornadoes where it lands. Strikers get Thundercrash, allowing them to leap enormous distances and hit a targeted area like a missile strike.
Warlock Voidwalkers get Nova Warp, adding transdimensional jumps that end with a burst of energy. Stormcallers’ new ability is Chaos Reach, which fires a beam of energy across a long range, while Dawnblades get Well of Radiance - they can slam their sword into the ground, healing and empowering allies in an aura.
Finally, Hunters - the Nightstalkers get Spectral Blades, which drops you into the shadows to let you slip behind foes. For Gunslingers, it’s Blade Barrage, which boosts your knife skills, while Arcstriders can now use Whirlwind Guard, letting them reflect projectiles back at your foes.
You can check out our updated Destiny 2 class guide for more information about the new supers. The Destiny 2: Forsaken release date is September 4, but it’s worth remembering that to get access to it, you’ll need to own the base game as well as the Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansions.
