Destiny 2 Kill Tormentors: A Tormentor can be seen

Are you wondering how to kill and defeat Tormentors in Destiny 2? These big brutes are all-new enemies in Destiny 2 Lightfall and are effectively minibosses, tougher than champions and a real challenge even for the most veteran of players.

But, after spending some time fighting them, we have some useful tips to help you out and take them down thanks to some new tools granted to use with the Destiny 2 Strand subclasses. So, if you need some help to take down the Destiny 2 Tormentors, look no further than the handful of tips below for what gear and items to use on Neomuna and during the Destiny 2 Lightfall missions.

Destiny 2 how to kill and defeat Tormentors

There are a couple of key tips to kill and defeat Tormentors in Destiny 2:

  • Utilise Strand’s Suspend ability 
  • Use Stasis subclasses
  • Use precision weapons like Scout Rifles, Linear Fusion Rifles, and Sniper Rifles to target their weak spots
  • Pummel Tormentors with abilities when you can damage them anywhere on their body

The first key tip is to make the most of Strand’s insanely useful Suspend ability. A number of abilities are able to do this. This includes the Shackle Grenades, Ensnaring Slam for Hunters, Titan Barricades, and The Bladefury heavy attack for Titans. Spending enemies will hold them in the air, unable to damage you for several seconds and are paired well with the Aberyant Leap Titan Exotic greaves.

Alternatively, Stasis is another fantastic element and subclass to use. The element will freeze Tormentors, allowing you to sink a ton of damage into them while they are frozen and unable to attack. With Stasis they will also be slowed.

As you will need to target weak points on the Tormentors, using precision weapons is also the main method of dealing damage. They are precise and allow you to hit the sometimes small weak points on the Tormentor’s body. Finally, when you can damage the Tormentors at any point on their body, pummel them with your class abilities and supers to deal a hefty amount of damage.

Those are the key tips to defeating and killing Tormentors in Destiny 2. The new enemy can pop up anywhere on Destiny 2 Neomuna, so be sure to prepare yourself for a tough fight.
