Introduction to the Beyond Light Hunter Revenant subclass:
This build has been update for the Beyond Light Expansion – Season of the Lost.
Welcome to our Beyond Light build for Hunter Revenant guide.
The newest update for Destiny 2: Beyond Lights introduces 3 subclasses for Warlock, Titan and Hunter.
All of them with their respective names Warlock Shadebinder, Titan’s Behemoth and Hunter Revenant.
This guide will teach you the fundamentals of the class learn about the Revenant, a new ninja type subclass for hunters that can summon storms in which the enemies will be lured only to be met by the utter devastation the Hunter will unleash upon them. They get a new weapon called The Kama Blade – a giant ice pick ready to strike down your enemies with freezing power.
Season of the Lost changes:
The best changes for Hunter in Season of the Lost is the Handcannon update which comes from the Lucky Pants exotic that was recently changed (Illegally Modded Holster – When you ready a fully loaded Hand Cannon that deals kinetic damage or a damage type that matches your subclass energy type, each hit fro that Hand cannon increases the damage of the next shot for a short time against a combatant. Hand cannons ready faster and are more accurate immediately after swapping to them).
Lucky Pants got a change in the last update and this is key for Hunter to be viable. Best Exotics we recommend for this are Crimson and Ariana’s Eriana’s Vow.
Crimson has a very unique perk – Cruel Remedy (Kills with this weapon heal the wielder. Precision kills also refill the magazine) which is very useful when you are melting the enemies with your Lucky Pants in order to sustain yourself.
Eriana’s Vow – Looks Can Kill (This weapon fires special shield piercing ammunition. It comes with a scope. Strong against Barrier Champions) useful for anti barriers and add clearing.
Either one of those is highly recommended depending on what you are going to face.
New additions with the Hunter Revenant Subclass:
The newest Super the Hunters get is called Silence and Squall and it works similar to the Blade Barrage Super. The Revenant leaps upwards and throws the Kama Blade,
the first Kama unleashes a freezing wave wherever it lands, freezing enemies in place.
As the Blade Barrage the second Kama hits shortly after the first one and spawns a deadly ice storm wherever it lands.
The winds track and show you the location of your enemies, slowing and damaging them during.
This super allows the Hunter to decide which group of enemies should you deal with first.
You can also use both attacks on the same spot causing both CC and damage to the same group.
Same as the other two brother subclasses, the Hunters have a melee override ability. Withering Blade is a new Statis shuriken for Hunters.
Whenever used it bounces between enemies, dealing damage and slowing any enemy it hits. An enemy hit by two Withering Blades will frozen for some duration.
In case you missed it in Beyond Light players can slot up to two Aspects in ther Statis tree.
These Aspects offer unique effects and change different aspects of the subclass.
Hunter Revenant Aspects
Shatterdrive: Hold dodge mid-air. Activate while midair to quickly descend and shatter nearby targets on impact.
Slow Dodge: Slow nearby enemies whenever you perform a dodge.
The slow after dodge is the key element of the upcoming slow builds for hunters – making this Aspect the choice you would want to go for. Check for the Recommended Equipment below for explanation of the build.
Whisper of Hedrons: Gain a bonus to weapon damage after freezing a target with Statis.
Hunter Revenants are getting new 3 Statis grenades and it seems all subclasses have the same grenade options:
Glacier Grenade: Upon contact with the ground, a wall of Statis crystals instantly burst from the earth and nearby enemies are frozen inside the Statis crystal.
These grenades have multiple uses – from encasing enemies to creating cover.
When destroyed the crystals will create AoE burst damage to nearby enemies.
Coldsnap Grenade: Upon impact with the ground or an enemy, this grenade unleashes a wave of Statis energy that races along the ground in the direciton of the closest nearby enemy,
freezing them and then searching out the nexet nearby foe. You can freeze up to three enemies with a single Coldsnap Grenade.
Duskfield Grenade: Duskfield Grenades create powerful Statis fields that suck enemies into them when forming. Once an enemy is caught inside, they will be slowed and, if unable to make it out of time frozen in place.
It is foreseen that the Slow Dodge Aspect Hunter build is going to be the best one and these are the items we highly recommend you should use.
Gemini Jester – As always, the perfect fit for every Hunter out there.
The Misdirection trait they have that causes you to disorient nearby enemies everytime you dodge – it is self explanitory, the slow you cause whenever dodging will simply make you use dodge correctly and more often
It is a killer must have combo that work great for PvP or PvE.
The Bombardiers – Is a more offensive leg armor piece that has the perk Parting Gift causing you to leave an explosive behind you after you dodge meaning they will be slowed and can not avoid it.
If you wan’t to spice things up simply use these exotics! Often used in PvP as a final melee finisher if you have to reload.
Frost-EE5 – Beyond Light is on the frozen wasteland on Europa, of course these boots are recommended!
Having the perk Rapid Cooldown that increases your sprint speed whenever you dodge and also increases your grenade, melee and dodge regeneration when sprinting.
Generally very underrated exotic, if you have it already don’t forget to try it out.
The Sixth Coyote – This chest armor has the simple trait called Double Dodge.
What more needs to be said? You gain a second dodge charge, clearly quite good combined with any of the above leg armors and your slow dodge perk as a Revenant!
Le Monarque – A combat bow that has poison arrows if you fire after a full draw on your already frozen/slowed targets makes it a vialbe option.
And Precision hits will be even easier to land making it a good AoE damage over time variant.
Witherhoard – And of course Witherhoard, this hard to use weapon is the best disrespect for your enemies that cant move. Simply few ticks of its Blight damage will annihilate them.
