Destiny 2 Arc 3.0 guide: all skins and shards Dexerto

Destiny 2 Season 18 will change how the lightning subclasses in the game work. Here’s everything we know about Destiny 2’s Arc 3.0 revamp, from skins and shards to how to unlock them.

Destiny 2 Season 18 arrives in just a few days, and along with new story content, a new Season Pass, and a new Season Artifact, players can also look forward to the Destiny 2 Arc 3.0 update.

Just as Void 3.0 came with The Witch Queen and Solar 3.0 came with Season of the Haunted, this time it’s Arc in the spotlight.

This is everything we know about Destiny 2 Arc 3.0 so far.

What is Arc 3.0 in Destiny 2?

Latest Bungie Blog Post revealed that Arc 3.0 will offer speed and impact in equal measure.

As with previous versions of the 3.0 subclass, there are a number of tradeoffs that can apply.

If you’re new to Destiny, the other non-Arc items are:

  • Solar – Fire damage
  • Stasis – Ice damage
  • Empty – Spatial/gravity damage
  • Kinetic – Standard Damage

All Arc 3.0 skins and shards so far

Guardians can customize their Solar subclass in a number of ways with Solar 3.0, and that’s done through the Skins (class-specific) and Shards (universal) options.



Bungie hasn’t yet revealed the full number of Shards for Arc 3.0 in Destiny 2, or their stat buffs (and penalties), but we’ll update this page when we have it.

How to unlock Arc 3.0 skins

While Stasis Aspects and Stasis Shards are unlocked by visiting the Stranger after completing the Beyond Light campaign, if you’ve played Destiny before, you’ll be able to have immediate access to all aspects of Arc 3.0 when you log in during Season 18.

You can get access to more Shards in exchange for Glimmer by visiting Ikora Rey in the Tower.

New players can obtain their Skins and Shards through the initial New Light experience.

That’s all we know about the Destiny 2 Arc 3.0 update. For more tips and guides covering all things Destiny, check out more of our guide content on Dexerto.
