Season of the Splicer

Destiny 2 – Khepri’s Horn and Code of the Devastator Titan PVE Build (HUGE Rally Barricade Buff Coming in Season 15)

Khepri’s Horn is an underused Exotic armor piece for Titans, but we have some buffs coming in Season 15 which are going to improve things across the board for Titans in PvE. Today I am going to go through Khepri’s Horn and Code of the Devastator build, so you can unleash fiery hell on your enemies next season.

There’s a couple of improvements coming to Titans next season including Rally Barricade and middle-tree sun breaker. I’ll be putting together a combination of these elements, together with Khepri’s Horn to create a PvE monster Titan build. I’m also taking into account the artifact mods for next season and I’ll go through that soon.

First, let’s have a look at the changes to Rally Barricade coming on August 24, 2021.

Rally Barricade

This Barricade variant doesn’t see much use, so we’ve made changes to make it a more viable option. It retains the same reload-speed benefits as before while adding other weapon buffs.

Standing behind the Rally Barricade now also provides the following weapon buffs:

+30 stability
+10% range
-50% flinch

All Barricades

Currently, certain fast-moving abilities allow you to speed through an enemy barricade while taking minimal damage. The goal of this change is to make players think twice before dashing through a barricade to engage the Titan on the other side. Barricades still can’t cause lethal damage, but dashing through one should now always leave you with a sliver of health.

  • Players moving at high velocity now take more damage when moving through hostile Titan Barricades.
  • Barricades now slightly protrude into the ground to better protect the Titan’s feet on uneven ground.
  • This should reduce instances where explosions and projectiles are able to sneak through the bottom of the Barricade and hit the Titan.

With that in mind, let’s have a look at the build.

Khepri’s Horn Titan PVE build

I’m going to be using a combination of exotic armor, subclass, weapons, and mods that take advantage of the buffs coming in season 15, specifically to Rally Barricade and middle-tree sunbreaker. This is going to be great for PVE content like Lost Sectors, Nightfalls, and also Raids.

Exotic Armour

Khepri’s Horn is an Exotic Titan Helmet that comes with the perk

Solar Rampart – Solar damage kills recharge your Barricade, which unleashes a blast of Solar energy when summoned.

The main reason I am going to be using this exotic armor is because of the recharge to the barricade, given the buff that’s coming in Season 15. Ideally, we want to be getting up the barricade as much as possible, so we can benefit from those buffs. Specifically, we want the rally barricade for these buffs

+30 stability
+10% range
-50% flinch

Next, let’s look at the subclass.


For this build, I’m going to be using Code of the Devastator, which is a middle-tree Sunbreaker. This is getting a huge buff next season focused on the throwing hammer melee ability. More on that in a minute.

Throwing Hammer – Throw a hammer from a distance. After throwing it, picking up the hammer fully recharges your melee ability.

Roaring Flames – Kills with your solar abilities increase those abilities’ damage. Stacks up to three times.

Tireless Warrior – After hitting an enemy with your Throwing Hammer, picking up the hammer triggers your health regeneration.

Burning Maul Summon a flaming maul and crush enemies with the force of an earthquake.
Replaces Hammer of Sol as subclass Super.

Roaring Flames is great, but we’re interested in the throwing hammer, given the buffs coming in season 15. Bungie improvements to Middle Tree Sunbreaker

We are extending the throwing hammer lifespan to allow Titans more time to finish an engagement and still pick up their hammer before it vanishes. We also felt it could deal more damage against orange- and yellow-bar enemies. Also, the new charged melee action allows you to throw your hammer point-blank at an enemy, which is pretty badass.

Throwing Hammer

  • Increased time before hammer explodes after hitting the ground from 6.5s to 10s.
  • Increased damage vs. powerful PvE combatants by ~50%.


Kinetic – Chroma Rush (Auto Rifle)

This is an auto rifle from Season of the Splicer. This is good because we have an anti-barrier auto rifle mod as part of the artifact, so having an auto rifle as part of the build is going to be key. If you don’t have Chroma Rush then another kinetic auto rifle would be fine, for example, Seventh Seraph Carbine, False Promises or The Forward Path.

Energy – Jotunn (Fusion) / Ticcu’s (Bow)

These are both solar weapons, which is good because of the Solar Rampart perk on our Exotic armor. These are also good because of the artifact mods next season, Unstoppable Fusion and Overload Bow meaning this build will work for Nightfalls, Lost Sectors, and Raids depending on the Champions. Jotunn can be bought from the Monuments to Lost Lights and Ticcu’s can be obtained if you had Season of the Chosen.

Power – Archon’s Thunder (Machine Gun)

Machine Guns are getting a PVE buff in Season 15, so this one is going to work well.


Elemental Charge – Become Charged with Light by picking up an elemental well. If the elemental well’s element type matches your subclass element, you gain 2 stacks of Charged with Light.

Elemental Ordnance – Defeating a combatant with a grenade spawns an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type.

Font of Wisdom – Picking up an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type grants you a temporary significant increase in your Intellect, improving the recharge rate of your Super. This gives you a +50 intellect boost for 30 secs, so this one is going to boost your super regeneration significantly.

Artifact mods

  • Anti barrier Auto Rifle
  • Unstoppable Fusion Rifle
  • Overload Bow
  • Unstoppable Pulse Rifle
  • Unstoppable Sidearm
