Destiny 2: All Void Grenades, Ranked

Let's see how the Void Grenades stack up!

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen introduces the Void 3.0 rework that changes the subclass to operate in the same way as Stasis. This means players will no longer be limited to only three Void Grenades and will instead have access to all six of the Void-type Grenades, regardless of their chosen class. Here are all of the Void Grenades in Destiny 2 and how they rank among one another.

It is hard to compare different types of grenades with one another, as they all work very differently. For example, one grenade may have the highest total damage capability, but its DPS is the lowest of them all. Therefore, we will be ranking these grenades on what they actually do, as well as overall performance in the game.

Below are the six Void Grenades ranked from worst to best:

  1. Vortex Grenade - This grenade is not actually a bad performer. It does solid damge over five seconds and in a four-meter radius. Still, this grenade just rings average; It's not very bad but also not very good.
  2. Spike Grenade - The Spike Grenade is similar to the Vortex Grenade in that it does damage over time to an area—the difference being that this grenade creates a cone of damage spanning out 12 meters and does slightly higher damage over time.
  3. Magnetic Grenade - The Magnetic Grenade will lock on to an enemy and stick to them, exploding twice to deal damage. This grenade is great for its ability to track to enemies, however, this can make it unpredictable and it's damage isn't as high as other options.
  4. Scatter Grenade - The Scatter Grenade stands out for being able to one-shot enemies in PvP. Other than that, the grenade is pretty inconsistant and can often result in very low damage against an intended target if all of the smaller grenades dont lock on.

  1. Voidwall Grenade - This is another grenade that damages enemies over time. However, it is a vast improvement over the Vortex and Spike grenades, as it does significantly more damage both initially and over time in a 10-meter line.
  2. Axion Bolt - This grenade truly stands out in PvP situations. It sends a bolt that will seek out enemies within a 14-meter radius. This means that the grenade is pretty forgiving and will follow an enemy for five seconds before dissapating. It also has the lowest cooldown of any Void grenade at just a minute and a half.
  3. Supression Grenade - These grenades are arguably the most solid grenades in all of Destiny. They can do a massive amount of damage with a direct hit, and they have the ability to bounce off the floor or wall before hitting an enemy. They have an eight-meter explosion radius, paired with a supression mechanic that disables the use of your class abilities.

So there you have it, those are all of the Void Grenades ranked from worst to best. The Void 3.0 update will no doubt add plenty of flexibility to the subclass, and we cannot wait to see what kind of builds are created using the different grenades that are now available to all classes.
