Get an overview of all the Destiny 2 Strand Fragments for each class and exactly how you can get more of them as you are playing.

As you are making your way through the Lightfall campaign, you will get to test out your new Strand subclass. However, you won’t have the full range of abilities and options, until you get to the end and can start purchasing Destiny 2 Strand Fragments.

These additions to the Destiny 2 Strand subclasses give your powers and set of abilities a nice boost with passive bonuses that can do things like boost your damage or enhance your statistics. So, if you are using some of the best Destiny 2 weapons, it is key to buildcraft well and form a well-thought-out Destiny 2 Hunter build, Destiny 2 Titan build, or Destiny 2 Warlock build with Strand Fragments that synergise well.

  • Thread of Continuity – Suspend, unravel, and sever effects applied to targets have increased duration
  • Thread of Evolution – Threadlings travel farther and deal additional damage

  • Thread of Fury – Damaging targets with a Tangle grants melee energy
  • Thread of Generation – Dealing damage generates grenade energy
  • Thread of Isolation – Landing rapid precision hits emits a severing burst from the target

How to get and unlock more Strand Fragments in Destiny 2

To unlock and get Strand Fragments in Destiny 2, you will need to head to the Pouka Pond on Neomuna to meditate and spend Strand Meditations to buy new Fragments. This can be done after beating the Destiny 2 Lightfall missions and campaign.

Strand Meditations are earned in a number of different ways as you are exploring and doing activities across Neomuna, as well as just completing activities. But, if you want a full guide to Destiny 2 Strand Meditations, we have that. We also have a solid Destiny 2 Strand Meditations farm so you can unlock them all.

A selection of Strand Fragments were time-gated, locked behind the weekly reset on March 7 and the world’s first Lightfall raid completion. But, you will no longer need to wait until the Destiny 2 Lightfall raid release date as they have all been unlocked in the menu after an update from Bungie.

That covers everything you need to know about Destiny 2 Strand Fragments and how you can get and unlock more of them as you are playing.
