Be amplified and with arc souls all the time
The new Season of the Deep has arrived at Destiny 2 bringing new artifact mods and some rework at subclasses. This opens the possibilities for new builds, looks like in Season 21 the Arc and Void will be the meta. See here a new Arc Warlock build with the Getaway Artist for Destiny 2 S21.
This Warlock build is all about Arc Souls, they are like a turret that automatically fires arc shots, generating Orbs of Power and Ionic Traces to recharge your abilities. You get an Arc Soul when casting your rift but thanks to the exotic perk of the Getaway Artist you also get it by consuming your grenade. At the same time, you become Amplified, which makes your Arc Soul supercharged and increases its fire rate. With the new mod Amped Up you gain damage resistance while amplified. Basically, you will be Amplified and with Arc Souls all the time. See also more Destiny builds, like this powerful Arc Hunter build with Liar’s Handshake, and don’t forget to check our Reddit.
