Destiny 2: Titan Sentinel guide - Abilities, skill tree, Super, passives

All you need to know about the Titan Sentinel subclass in Destiny 2.

Our Titan Sentinel guide contains all of the subclass’s abilities, passive abilities, grenades, barricades and other upgrades.

Titans are the bulky bruisers of Destiny 2, utilising their brute strength and defensive capabilities in order to punish enemies and protect allies. Specialists at wearing heavy armour, Titans aren’t afraid to throw themselves into the thick of battle, and the Sentinel subclass in Destiny 2 is perfect for those who want to lead the party's charge.

Having bashed everyone with our shield in the beta, we’ve brought together everything we know about how the Titan Sentinel's abilities and skills work. We’ll update the page considerably as soon as we get more hands-on time with the game and can thoroughly test drive this subclass for ourselves - stay tuned for more details!

Once you’re done soaking up information on the Sentinel subclass, it’s worth checking out our Subclass guide to get up to speed on every other archetype in the game. For a comprehensive look at everything in Destiny 2, our Destiny 2 guide is the place to turn - it's got all you could ever want in one place.

Editor's UPDATE #5: We've added a brand-new section that'll take you through how the Sentinel Shield blocks enemy damage, and what you should look out for while doing it. All of this information can be found just under the Skill Tree section. We'll update this guide extensively when the game launches in September, so keep this page bookmarked for more information!

Super Ability: Sentinel Shield

  • Press [L1+R1] to summon a shield of Void Light. While Sentinel Shield is active, press [R1] to attack. Hold [L2] to guard. Press [L1] to preform a Shield Throw.

Make sure you check out our Super guide for more tips and tricks on how to master the Titan Sentinel's Sentinel Shield ability.

Code of the Aggressor

  • Shield Bash: After sprinting for a short time, use this Melee Ability to unleash a devastating Shielf Bash that disorients enemies.
  • Superior Arsenal: Grenade kills recharge your Grenade energy.
  • In the Trenches: Kills while surrounded by enemies reduce the cooldown of your Super.
  • Second Shield: Gain an additional Shield Throw charge while Sentinel Shield is active.

Code of the Protector

  • Defensive Strike: Kill an enemy with this Melee Ability to create an overshield around you and nearby allies.
  • Rallying Force: Melee kills restore Health for you and nearby allies.
  • Turn the Tide: Your Overshield from Defensive Strike lasts longer and increases melee damage and reload speed.
  • Ward of Dawn: When Super energy is full, press and hold [L1+R1] to create a shielding dowme to protect you and your allies.

Grenades

  • Magnetic Grenade: A grenade that attaches to enemies and explodes twice.
  • Voidwall Grenade: A grenade that creates a horizontal wall of burning void light.
  • Suppressor Grenade: An explosive grenade that prevents enemies from using abilities for a short time.

Barricades

There are two types of barricade associated with the Titan class.

  • Towering Barricade: A large barrier that can be used for cover, or to seal off dangerous areas for a short time.
  • Rallying Barricade: A small barrier you can peek over while aiming down sights. Instantly reloads your equipped weapon when you take cover.

Jumps

  • High Life: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air at greater heights.
  • Strafe Lift: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air with strong directional control.
  • Catapult Lift: Jump while airborne to activate Lift and launch into the air with a strong initial burst of momentum.

Super Ability analysis

We’ve embedded an excellent video just below by ‘cbgray’. He’s compiled all of the Titan Sentinel gameplay that’s been released so far, and gleaned it for any information regarding the subclass’s skills and abilities.

What can Sentinel Shield block?

All of the information on shield-blocking below comes courtesy of this Reddit thread.

Sentinel Shield is really strong - so strong in fact, that it’s able to block every Super Ability in Destiny 2.

Although the Sentinel Shield is able to soak up everything that’s thrown at it, you’ll still have to pay attention to one important factor - your Super bar.

Here are the ins and outs of shield blocking:

  • You can block any and all super hits directed at your shield, as long as you have enough Super energy of your own to take the hit.
  • Each time your shield takes damage from an enemy Super, your own Super bar is depleted by a pretty huge chunk.
  • If your shield takes damage while your Super bar is heavily depleted, your Titan will enter a knockback animation which lasts for around one second. In this animation you're unable to defend yourself, so be careful!
  • Do bear in mind that this shield block doesn’t give you complete immunity as you’ll still vulnerable if attacked from behind.

If you're after more footage of the Titan Sentinel in action, skip to around 5:40 in the video below and see what the Sentinel is capable of on the Vostok Control map.

That's all we've got on the Titan Sentinel so far, and we'll update this article as soon as we get some more hands on time with the game.
