Big changes are coming to Destiny 2 with the arrival of Lightfall and Season 20 on February 28. 2023. But one of the more significant changes is how Guardians will be able to deal with Champions. These powerful enemies have been trickling into more and more content, but Season 20 will change how we approach them. Here are all Champion Counters in Lightfall Destiny 2 that we know about so far.

Champions are likely to become more common in Lightfall, and Destiny has made fighting these enemies far more approachable.

We can expect Champion Artifact Mods and Exotics with intrinsic Champion counters, like the Lament, to stay relevant and useful in countering Champions. But now, all class sub-types will have perks that will help you stun or pierce Champions. Some items and perks listed are subject to change.
