Destiny 2 Lightfall introduces a new subclass called Strand. This is the game’s fifth subclass, and you can switch around between Arc, Solar, Stasis, Strand, and Void, at any time if you have unlocked them.

What is Destiny?
Destiny was the first new IP from Bungie since they started the famous Halo franchise. It was a big part of the 8th-generation console launch and became an incredibly successful online FPS title.
Years later, Destiny 2 was the big expansion that promised to be even more popular than the first title. At that mark, the game hasn’t failed, with more than 200,000 players at the same time at its peak.
