Destiny 2 Titan Subclasses and Abilities

Back in the original Destiny, the Titan had the Dawnhammer Super Ability, where the player was able to throw several fiery hammers at any enemies on the battlefield, dealing massive amounts of damage to them in the process. The Dawnhammer isn't back in the sequel however, as the Titan has several brand new abilities through the Sentinel, Sunbreaker, and Striker subclasses.

Destiny 2 Titan Striker Super, Abilities, Skills, Grenades

Unlike the Sentinel subclass, we did have access to the Titan Striker subclass at preview events, so we've been able to go hands on with the subclass that feels a lot like the original Titan subclass from the first Destiny. The Titan has s similar ground slam Super.

So, how does each Titan subclass play? Not a whole lot differently from the original Destiny, honestly, as the Titan still has a very defensive subclass through the Striker's Towering Barricade and Rally Barricade abilities, while also having an offensive subclass through the Sentinel abilities.
