With the release of Lightfall Bungie has added loadouts in Destiny 2. You no longer need to use third-party apps and tools in order to switch your loadouts. Not all loadout slots are available at launch. In this Destiny 2 guide, we cover how you can unlock, equip and save your loadouts.
Unlocking Loadout Slots
Veterans will have about 6 loadout slots ready to use. You can unlock 4 more by increasing your guardian rank to level 6 and completing the Flawless Lost Sector Guardian Rank challenge found in the Guardian Rank 7 challenges. If you have not played the game in a while then Flawless means that you cannot die during the run. Complete any Legendary Lost Sector without dying and you will get the 4 additional loadout slots. These will be permanently unlocked for upcoming seasons as well.
Some Legendary Lost Sectors are easier than others. We recommend the ones on Euripa and the EDZ since they are shorter and easier to complete. Avoid the ones that are on the Moon or Savathun’s Throne World as they take longer and are harder to beat. Experienced players can have a go at them.
Saving And Equipping Your Loadout
If you want to access the loadouts then head over to the character screen and press left on the D-Pad or the left arrow key on your keyboard. The loadouts will show up on the left side of the screen. You can them save your loadout to one of the slots. You can also choose to override the loadout at any time.
You can switch your loadout at any time and do not have to return to orbit or the tower to change your loadout.
This is how you can unlock loadouts and equip them in Destiny 2 Lightfall. You can also check out our guide on how you can unlock the Strand subclass.
