Destiny 2 Prismatic Titan

The best Prismatic Titan build in Destiny 2 makes use of Aspects and Fragments which can help the class clear enemies instantly, so here’s how you can build it.

Prismatic for Titans in Destiny 2 The Final Shape picks up the best Aspects from all the other subclasses and brings them all into one place, allowing you to make some builds that were previously impossible.

While you will come across some of the Aspects and Fragments used in this build as you go through the campaign, some of the more important bits can only be accessed once you’ve completed the Alone in the Dark quest from Micah-10.

So, here’s the best Prismatic Titan build in Destiny 2 along with the Exotic items that you can pair with it.

Best Destiny 2 Prismatic Titan class setup

For this Prismatic Titan build, here’s the class setup that you need to use in Destiny 2:

  • Class ability: Thrusters
  • Movement: Catapult Lift
  • Grenade: Pulse Grenade
  • Melee: Frenzied Blade
  • Super: Bladefury / Twilight Arsenal

This class setup is dominated by a lot of Strand-based abilities for the following reasons:

  • First of all, Strand is a better crowd-control option than Stasis, so you’ll be able to deal with more groups of ads at the same time.
  • Your Frenzied Blade melee ability can store three charges, compared to just one on the Shiver Strike.

Since this is a melee build, the Bladefury Super should be your first pick, especially in situations where you need to clear a lot of ads. However, if you’re looking to go with a DPS super, then Twilight Arsenal should be the one you need to pick.

The Prismatic Titan build is mostly a melee build.

However, keep in mind that if you’re using the Twilight Arsenal, it will override the damage bonuses that you get from any Radiant buff that you passively earn, so you might notice a minor reduction in the damage numbers.

Best Aspects & Fragments for Destiny 2 Prismatic Titan

The best Prismatic Titan build in Destiny 2 is primarily a melee build, so the choice of Aspects and Fragments are mostly the ones that can help you survive while being surrounded by ads.


KnockoutCritically wounding or breaking a target’s shield increases the damage and lunge range of your next melee attack. Defeating targets with Knockout Amplifies and heals you. Defeating stronger opponents increases the heal amount.
ConsecrationWhile sliding, activate your melee ability to launch a wave of Solar energy to damage and Scorch enemies. Press the melee ability button again to slam down, dealing more damage. If the second attack hits Scorching enemies, they will Ignite.

Facet of CourageArc, Solar, and Void abilities deal more damage to targets debuffed by Darkness.+10 Discipline
Facet of BalanceRapidly defeating targets with Light damage grants melee energy. Rapidly defeating enemies with Dark damage restores grenade energy.
Facet of DawnPowered melee hits make you Radiant. Powered melee final blows make you and your teammates Radiant.-10 Strength
Facet of PurposePicking up an Orb of Power grants either Amplify, Restoration, Frost Armor, Wover Mail, or Overshield based on your equipped Super.-10 Recovery

The idea of using these Aspects and Fragments is simple. With Knockout, whenever you kill someone with your melee, you’ll be amplified and healed for a certain portion of your health. With Consecration, whenever you slide and activate your melee ability, you’ll release a line of fire that scorches enemies. If you press the ability button once again, you’ll slam the floor releasing Solar AoE damage.

With the Facet of Balance, whenever you hit enemies with your Strand melee, you’ll generate grenade energy, and hitting enemies with your grenade will cause you to regenerate melee energy. It’s a nice cycle and isn’t very difficult to chain in the best Destiny 2 Prismatic Titan build.

Destiny 2 best Prismatic Titan Exotics

Considering that the best Prismatic Titan build in Destiny 2 is a melee build, you can be pretty flexible with the choice of Exotic here. The armors available are as follows:

  • Heart of Inmost Light: This Exotic buffs your ability energy regeneration rate, so you’ll have high uptime on all your abilities.
  • Synthoceps: Since you’ll be heading into hordes of enemies, Synthoceps can also be a good choice of Exotic because your melee damage is buffed when you’re surrounded by ads.
  • Wormgod Caress: You’ll get escalating melee damage whenever you kill an enemy with a powered melee or a finisher. When the buff from the Exotic is active, you’ll gain additional weapon damage too.
