Best Hunter Loadout to complete The Final Shape on Legend - Destiny 2

Below is the best Legend difficulty Hunter Loadout in Destiny 2 The Final Shape.

Standard Void Hunter Loadout

  • The Void Build in Destiny 2
  • The Void Loadout in Destiny 2

I personally used the following loadout to complete the entire Campaign of Destiny 2 on legendary difficulty, starting with the Transmigration and ending with the seventh mission, Iconoclasm. Use this build when you don't require a Prismatic sub class.

This loadout mainly revolves around invisibility. Basically, when you enter a fight, you perform a dodge and go invisible using the Vanishing Step. Now, when you spot an enemy, come out of invisibility to gain Volatile Rounds from the Gyrfalcon's Hauber and blast the enemies using it. Since you are shooting with Volatile Rounds, you will get another invisibility from the Stylish Executioner. On top of that, you can spam your Snare grenade and Vortex Grenade to debuff enemies and increase your Super pretty quickly.


  • Primary: Scattered Signal (Finish Riven's Lair) or The Call (random drop in Pale Heart)
  • Secondary: Graviton Lance (Purchasable from XUR), The Title (Finish Tower Medal Quest), or Le Monarque (Part of Forsaken DLC)
  • Power: Dragon's Breath (Season of Wish Battle Pass Gun) or Apex Predator (random drop from Last Wish Raid)

Armor Mods

  • Chest (Exotic) - Gyrfalcon's Hauberk- (Damage Resistance Mod based on quest/enemy types)
  • Arm Mods - Fire Power, Momentum Transfer
  • Helmet Mods - Void Siphon, Dynamo
  • Leg Mods - Solar Scavenger, Recuperation, Better Already
  • Cloak Mods - Time Dilation, Powerful Attraction, Healthy Finisher

Abilities, Aspects, and Fragments

  • Abilities: Gambler's Dodge, Triple Jump, Snare Bomb, Vortex Grenade
  • Aspects: Stylish Executioner, Vanishing Step
  • Fragments: Echo of Vigilance, Echo of Persistence, Echo of Starvation and Echo of Obscurity

Prismatic Hunter Build

  • The Prismatic Hunter loadout in Destiny 2
  • The Prismatic Hunter Build in Destiny 2

During the Final Shape campaign, you sometimes have to use the Prismatic sub-class to finish certain sections of the questline. So, here is the Prismatic loadout I used for the major portions of my campaign.

This loadout mainly relies upon the invisibility perks of the Assassin's Cowl and the freeze perks of the Winter Shroud aspects. You start by shooting with the Buried Bloodline until your Devour meter fills up and gets activated. When it is activated, perform melee or finisher attacks to get invisibility. Then, it is a matter of freezing your enemies and destroying them with your melee or weapon attack. Also, we have the fantastic Triple Jump and Grapple abilities to displace or reposition during fights. Other than that, there are subtle small perks like various mods, fragments, and exotics that restore your health, reduce ability cooldown, and drop special ammo.


  • Primary: Rufus Fury (Drop from the Root of Nightmares Raid) or Thorn (Part of Forsaken DLC)
  • Secondary: Buried Bloodline (complete the Shadow of the Mountain quest) or Sunshot (Purchasable from XUR)
  • Power: Hammerhead (Open Shaxx's Chest in Hall of Champions) or Edge Transit (Complete Onsalught Activities)

Armor and Mods

  • Helmet (Exotic) - Assassin's Cowl (Hands-On, Suitable Weapon Siphon mod)
  • Arm Mods - Impact Induction, Heavy Handed
  • Chest Mods - Damage Resistance Mod based on quest/enemy types. If there are a lot of Arc enemies, use Arc Resistance Mod.
  • Leg Mods - Innveration, Suitable Weapon Surge Mod
  • Cloak Mods - Powerful Attraction, Special Finisher

Abilities, Aspects, and Fragments

  • Abilities: Grapple, Triple Jump, Gambler's Dodge, Combination Blow
  • Aspects: Stylish Executioner, Winter Shroud
  • Fragments: Facet of Ruin, Facet of Dawn, Facet of Courage, Facet of Protection, Facet of Purpose
