Best Build for Volatile Rounds (Season 16)

Anyone whose been playing Destiny 2 in Season 16 knows it’s the season of Volatile Rounds,

Anyone whose been playing Destiny 2 in Season 16 knows it’s the season of Volatile Rounds. In just about every PvE activity, players are bound to see at least one person rocking a Funnelweb SMG in Elden Ring, grabbing Wells of Light, and blowing targets up with void rounds. While there are plenty of builds out there that can easily trigger volatile rounds for players’ void weapons, there is one Warlock build that surpasses just about every other volatile build in the game due to the amount of easy wells players can generate while using it.

By combing the right well-making armor mods with some of the new void fragments, players will be able to generate wells constantly as well as keep their volatile rounds up for as long as possible while using their Warlocks. This build centers around Warlocks Voidwalker Subclass, but more specifically, Scatter Grenades and the new Void 3.0 Fragment ‘Echo of Instability.’  In order to pull this build off, players will also want to get their hands on a good roll of the exotic glove ‘Nothing Mannicles,’ which grants players a second scatter grenade charge and adds tracking to the grenades projectiles. This is all players will need in terms of exotic armor and subclass fragments.

The most important part of this build is the well mods that are being used as well as the Echo of Instability void fragment. This fragment will trigger volatile rounds upon every grenade kill, which can be combined with the well-making mod ‘Elemental Ordanace’ to create even more void wells to trigger volatile rounds using the seasonal artifact mod ‘Votalie Flow’ on a different piece of armor. Players will want to upgrade their discipline stat as much as they can to recharge their Destiny 2’s void grenades as quickly as possible. All of this combined with the seasonal ‘Font of Might’ mod to increase void damage on void well pick up makes this build an offensive beast in PvE.

All of these combined provide for the most lethal volatile round combination possible. In addition, the new Stasis energy mod in Destiny 2, Elemental Time Dilation allows for players to stack the time-limited benefits of well-making mods, including Font of Might and Volatile Flow. This allows players to keep on stacking 15 seconds of volatile rounds through wells they made with grenades or kills after an ability using Reaping Wellmaker. The void linear fusion rifle, Threaded Needle, is also handy due to the constant void damage buff players will receive through their wells.
