How do Warmind Cells work in Destiny 2

Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

Warmind Cells are orange-colored orbs that look similar to Rasputin, albeit much smaller. These orbs spawn upon killing enemies with Seventh Seraph or IKELOS weapons while having a Warmind Cell mod equipped on the Combat Style Mod slot in your Armor. Once you generate a Warmind Cell, it will drop on the ground and detonate after a few seconds or after taking a few shots from you or any member of your fireteam. At the base level, Warmind Cell explosions will cause nearby enemies to take damage. However, combining different Warmind Cell mods will also grant additional effects like healing, burning, and AoE utility. The following are all the Warmind Cell mods and how they work in Destiny 2.

How to spawn Warmind Cells in Destiny 2

There are various ways to spawn Warmind Cells in Destiny 2. Killing a certain number of enemies while using a Seventh Seraph or IKELOS weapon with a Warmind Cell mod on your armor will generate a Warmind Cell. Though the in-game description of Warmind Cell mods may hint that Warmind Cells generate by chance, it is not so random. Depending on the type of enemy you kill, you can roughly estimate when the next Warmind Cell will spawn. Broadly speaking, every four to five red health bar enemies you kill will spawn a Warmind Cell. On the other hand, every two to three orange health bar enemies have a chance of spawning a Warmind Cell, while yellow health bar enemies will always spawn a Warmind Cell upon death.

Where to get Warmind Cell mods in Destiny 2?

The only way to obtain Warmind Cell mods is from ADA-1 in the Tower in exchange for Glimmer. ADA-1 will sell up to two Combat Style mods daily for 10,000 Glimmer each. The availability of Warmind Cell mods are subject to RNG. However, since Warmind Cell mods are classified as Combat Style mods, ADA-1 has a decent chance of offering one quite frequently.
