KEY POINTS

  • Renewal Grasps greatly buffs Duskfield grenades
  • Whisper of Rending significantly increases the damage dealt against crystals and frozen targets
  • Revenants excel in both PvP and PvE 

Even with the updates to the Void and Solar subclasses, Stasis remains as powerful as it was before in any of “Destiny 2’s” activities. Hunters in particular have what is arguably the best Stasis kit out of all classes for a variety of reasons.

With the proper build, Revenants can constantly provide utility, crowd control and defensive buffs on top of dealing good damage over a wide area. Here’s one setup that takes advantage of the Revenant’s aspects, fragments and unique exotics.

Recommended Gear

The exotic armor piece for this build is the Renewal Grasps gauntlets, which grant Duskfield grenades enhanced effects. It makes the field itself larger while also increasing the damage resistance of all allies inside. Renewal Grasps also reduce the damage dealt by all enemies in the field, on top of damaging and freezing them.

Since this build relies heavily on the Duskfield effects, players will want weapons that synergize with grenades or help regenerate grenade energy. Perks like Adrenaline Junkie, Demolitionist and Wellspring are very valuable for this setup.

A Judgment hand cannon with Adrenaline Junkie and Demolitionist is highly recommended as it ties nicely to the offensive part of this loadout, which relies on how the Revenant subclass is built.

Mods and Subclass Setup

The two main aspects for this build are Touch of Winter and Grim Harvest. The former causes Duskfield grenades to spawn a Stasis crystal on impact, while the latter increases ability regeneration via Stasis shards.

Touch of Winter’s crystal serves as usable cover against incoming fire, as a source of Stasis shards and as an offensive grenade for clearing enemies. Use this with the following fragments to maximize its usefulness:

  • Whisper of Shards
  • Whisper of Refraction
  • Whisper of Fissures
  • Whisper of Torment
  • Whisper of Rending

Judgment will be able to destroy the crystal in one hit with Whisper of Rending, making Duskfield grenade a reliable damage option. The rest of the fragments will increase the blast damage and radius and grant extra ability energy.

For armor mods, use Momentum Transfer and Grenade Kickstart to make Duskfield’s recharge even faster. The Revenant’s dual shurikens are great for doing this, especially with Gambler’s Dodge equipped. As for armor stats, max Discipline is recommended with Resilience and Mobility as secondary priorities.
