Destiny 2: Lightfall is here. It is the penultimate expansion to the Light and Darkness saga. Subsequently, Bungie added a new subclass to the game. Strand is a power born from the Darkness. Today, guardians can unlock it and unravel the mysteries of Neomuna. Check out the unlock Strand guide below.

First, players should complete the Lightfall campaign. Much of it centers on Strand and serves as a tutorial for the subclass. However, the final mission, “Desperate Measures,” must be completed. Strand becomes accessible once the campaign questline is completed. However, the fragments and aspects will be missing. Players need to visit the Pouka Pond by the Hall of Heroes. Similarly, it behaves as the meditation point to further your Strand capabilities.
Players must purchase the grenades, aspects, and fragments. The aspects introduced within the campaign must be purchased first. Furthermore, unlocking them does not require glimmer. Instead, players need Strand Fragments. This is a new currency introduced by Lightfall.
They are easy to come by. Simply kill enemies and complete activities within Neomuna while Strand is equipped. On Thursday, Bungie announced their plans to remove the time gate on Strand’s unlocks. Therefore, players can purchase every fragment now within the game. Be sure to meditate at the pond after purchasing any unlocks.

That concludes this how-to unlock Strand guide. Early impressions are still being processed for the new subclass. Additionally, many players have their hands full grinding artifact levels for the day-one raid. The artifact mods and fragments have a lot of synergy with Strand.
Additionally, the Strand Exotics seem to round out builds extremely well. Time will tell how viable Strand is inside PvP and endgame PvE. What are your thoughts on Strand? Let us know in the comments down below. For all things Destiny 2, remember to bend the knee in the realm of Lords of Gaming.
