What is Charged with Light in Destiny 2?
Through Combat Style armor mods, one can acquire and control Charged with Light, a special boost. Charged with Light doesn’t function on its own, unlike other Combat Style features. The bonuses are entirely dependant on the armor modifications you have.
The mods come in three different categories:
- Charge Generators (Green): You receive stacks from these mods.
- Charge Consumers (Yellow): Your stacks become potent boons thanks to these mods.
- Modifiers (White): The way you acquire and use stacks is modified by these mods.
You’ll need mods that supply and consume stacks if you want to use Charged with Light at all. These modifications, despite their apparent complexity, are actually quite easy to utilize and greatly increase the power of your Guardian. These mods function in PvP in contrast to the other two Combat Style mechanisms, Warmind Cells and Elemental Wells.
How does Charged with Light work in Destiny 2?
Here is a quick explanation of Charged with Light’s operation:
|Effect||Effects of buffs are totally reliant on your armor modifications.|
|Duration||Until you die.|
You need stacks of Charged with Light in order for your buff mods to function. Upon performing an action, several Combat Style mods will award Charged with Light stacks. Although there are a few exceptions, the majority of these upgrades demand several kills with a certain weapon family.
The benefits of the malleable buff Charged with Light depend on the types of armor modifications you are wearing. Potential buff effects can range from 20% more weapon damage to 50% more damage resistance once your shields are breached, the ability to produce Special ammunition from Void damage, and many other things.
Every mod that adds Charged with Light stacks will only add one stack, unless stated otherwise. These mods can be equipped in as many slots for Combat Style mods as you like, but in order for them to function, your armor must contain a mod that consumes buffs.
How to consume Charged with Light stacks?
What use is a boost if it has no effect? You’ll need mods that deplete Charged with Light stacks if you want your Charged with Light stacks to have any kind of benefit. These mods’ descriptions will make that clear. A few frequent modifications in this category are:
- High-Energy Fire: Provides a 20% increase in weapon damage. Spends a stack on each successful kill.
- Firepower: Your grenade’s throw costs one stack and returns 15% energy.
- Heavy Handed: One stack will be consumed when you use your melee ability, which returns 50% energy. In its secondary bonus, when you defeat PvE foes when they are surrounded, Fusion Rifles and Shotguns are given ammunition.
The majority of these mods have an affinity for a specific element. What armor types can accommodate a mod depends on that mod’s affinity. Arc armor, Solar armor, and Void armor all permit the use of void, arc, and solar mods. Any piece of armor can be modified with universal modifications, or those without an elemental affinity.
The mod’s elemental affinity also determines some of its characteristics:
|Solar||Many instances of the same stack of Solar mods.|
|Arc||Possesses a secondary effect that needs to be engaged. Requires either a second Arc CwL mod on the same piece of armor or an Arc mod on any piece of armor.|
|Void||These modifications cost little but take ten points off of one stat.|
