Destiny 2 Class Guide - should you pick Titan, Hunter or Warlock?

Your Destiny 2 class determines your abilities and, just as importantly, your fashion sense, so it's arguably the most important choice you'll make in the entire game. You can use any weapon or element on any class, but each class has their own selection of Exotic armor pieces, supers, and skills, so your class will affect your play style as well as your appearance. Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans have some overlap but they feel very differently, and the differences become more pronounced as you get more comfortable with a class and start using more advanced combos. With that in mind, we've prepared a helpful breakdown for choosing the Destiny 2 class that suits your idea of space magic.  

Each class - which in turn has its own subclasses (though not too many, you'll be relieved to hear) - has its own strengths and weaknesses, but unlike the traditional tank / support / mage classes you might have seen elsewhere, each of Destiny 2's classes can be devastating in its own way. Here's what we think makes each of them so enjoyable to play, especially as you unlock upgrades that help you personalise them even further.
