Destiny 2 has finally arrived on the PC, bringing the world of Bungie’s hit shoot and loot to PC gamers around the world. It’s a brand-new world for many players, and getting used to the game can take a bit for new players. Getting used to swapping between your different Subclasses is important, and as you progress through Destiny 2, you’ll be doing this quite a bit, which is why we’ve put together this article to walk you through how to change your Subclass in Destiny 2.
As we stated above, changing your Subclass in Destiny 2, and knowing how to do that on the fly, is going to be important. Many Subclasses can be swapped out to be used during times when they prove the most useful—for example, the Titan’s Fists of Havoc might not always be the best Super to have equipped during battle—which is why you should know how to change it quickly.
How to Change Your Subclass
We’ve already shown you how to unlock new Subclasses, as well as gone in-depth on which class you should use first in Destiny 2. But, the trick to using any of the classes effectively is going to be knowing how to change between your available Subclasses very quickly. This means you’ll want to know how to access the menu, as well as how to find the new Subclasses that you’ve unlocked.
In order to change your Subclass, you’re going to need to go into your Character menu. From here you can manage your currently equipped Armor, Weapons, Ghosts, and even Emotes. Once in the Character menu, locate the Subclass icon on the top left of the line-up (just next to your Guardian’s head) and click on it. Once you’ve done this, you should see all the different Subclass options and upgrades that you have available.
Now, to change your Subclass, all you’re going to need to do is locate the unlocked Subclass that you want to equip, and select it. Then, back out of the Subclass menu to the Character screen, and you should now see an icon depicting that new Subclass where the old Subclass icon was. You can now exit out of the Character menu and continue your journey with your new Subclass equipped.
You should note, however, that changing your Subclass will reset your Super, Melee, and Grenade powers. This means they’ll need to completely recharge again, forcing you to wait. So, always try to make sure you use your Super up before you change it, as the Cooldown/Charge rate of the Super can be quite long depending on the upgrades that you have chosen for your equipped Subclass.
Now that you know how to change your Subclass, be sure to make your way back over to our Destiny 2 guide, where you’ll find plenty of in-depth articles like how to level up quickly, as well as a guide on the best weapons in Destiny 2.
