What Are the Best Prismatic Hunter Builds?

The Final Shape lets people theorycraft more than ever with more loadout slots and dual prismatic subclass. Below you will find our best prismatic builds for PvE and PvP.

Best Player Versus Environment Hunter Build

  • Super: Storm’s Edge
  • Class Ability: Acrobat’s Dodge
  • Movement Mode: Triple Jump
  • Melee Ability: Threaded Spike
  • Grenade Ability: Swarm Grenade
  • Aspects:
    • Gunpowder Gamble
    • Stylish Executioner
  • Fragments:
    • Facet of Ruin
    • Facet of Dawn
    • Facet of Balance
    • Facet of Mending
    • Facet of Sacrifice
  • Exotic Weapon: Any weapon that easily applies a light or darkness status effect.
  • Exotic Armor: Graviton Forfeitx

This prismatic build focuses on synergies that feed into each other so that no matter what ability you’re using it will empower your ability use or ability generation in some way. You’ll nearly always be radiant, proccing Gunpowder gamble will be effortless; no matter what you use, you’ll always end up invisible. Meanwhile, Graviton Forfeit makes it all better too by lowering melee cooldown and increasing recovery.

Best Player Versus Player Hunter Build

  • Super: Storm’s Edge
  • Class Ability: Marksman’s Dodge
  • Movement Mode: Blink
  • Melee Ability: Knife Trick
  • Grenade Ability: Duskfield Grenade
  • Aspects:
    • Winter’s Shroud
    • Threaded Specter
  • Fragments:
    • Facet of Hope
    • Facet of Grace
    • Facet of Sacrifice
    • Facet of Devotion
  • Exotic Weapon: A kinetic Exotic may be the best choice.
  • Exotic Armor: Renewal Grasps

I can’t help but recommend Storm’s Edge for PvP as well. Its range is massive and is incredibly hard to fight against. Meanwhile, your buff from standing in the duskfield grenade will help keep you alive and boost your Light damage. Blink will make your movement harder to predict while dodging will spawn a strand version of you that can be used for area denial or surprising an enemy.

All in all, you should be constantly earning light and darkness transcendence energy as you land abilities, get the new Frost Armor defensive buff, slow enemies, and become radiant with this hunter prismatic build.
