Stasis is arguably the biggest ever implementation that Bungie has ever incorporated into a Destiny game. It’s the first-ever new element to be introduced into the game and could be a game-changer. We’ll walk you through Stasis in our guide and tell you how t unlock Aspects & Fragments in Beyond Light.

In addition to the usual fanfare of glossy weapons, awe-inspiring environments, and tricky new enemies – Beyond Light has gone one step further. Since the release of the original Destiny all the way back in 2014, Bungie has always stuck to the same elements. These have consisted of: Kinetic, Solar, Arc, and Void.

However, the Beyond Light expansion will see Stasis introduced, embracing the icy wonderland that Europa is made of.

With a new element comes a lot of learning and wondering to do. Ultimately we thought it was best to try and gather information about Stasis and put together a guide to highlights its capabilities. Also, we’ll show you off to unlock Aspects & Fragments too.

This is our Stasis guide, that includes Aspects & Fragments, for Beyond Light.

What is Stasis?

Yes, it can make you this powerful.

Quite simply, Stasis is ice, elemental damage that can be inflicted upon enemies. It will be effective against enemies that have a weakness to the ice elements. Stasis is an extremely versatile element that can be used both offensively and defensively.

If you’re new to Destiny, then here is what the elements are, and what they represent:

  • Arc – Electricity Damage
  • Solar – Fire Damage
  • Void – Dark Damage
  • Kinetic – Standard damage

How to unlock Stasis

With the new element being such a big part of the new world, it makes sense to have to explore the world to get it. So your Guardian will have to complete the Campaign to unlock Stasis. You’ll first encounter the element during one of the story missions and be introduced to its mechanics.

Once you have successfully beaten the final mission of Beyond Light’s Campaign:

  1. Visit the Exo Stranger
  2. Visit the Pyramid Alter
  3. Receive Stasis sub-class

What it does

Stasis has so many different uses.

A new sense of possibility is instilled thanks to Stasis’ multi-faceted use. The element itself has two primary uses that if mastered correctly, could have a huge bearing in the way that you play Destiny 2.

The mode that could see the biggest surge in unpredictability though is PvP. These traditional, dogfights can escalate into a scene from frozen with erected ice walls and more.

Offensively

Let’s face it, everyone wants to go on the offensive and dish out the damage. Stasis revolutionizes the way in which you can manipulate the battlefield. From creating platforms to give yourself an aerial advantage, to completing engulfing enemies in ice altogether.

Here are some efficient methods of using Stasis to hurt.

  • Creating a line of deadly ice blocks – Carpet Bomb style
  • The ability to form ice platforms on objects to climb on – provides an aerial advantage, or can quickly close the space
  • You can encase enemies in ice – freezing them on the spot
  • This allows you to follow-up and land a devastating attack on a frozen enemy
  • Fire ice projectiles

Defensively

Now, whilst this list will be shorter and less full, it’s also just as valuable. As Bungie has commented on in interviews, one of the perks of the ice abilities is PvP. A.I is one thing, but another human-controlled Guardian is most dangerous of all.

These are some ways in which Stasis can be used to defend yourself.

  • Once again, forming ice platforms on objects, but to aid your escape and to get to higher ground to quickly recover
  • Freezing opponents to slow them down
  • Creating ice barriers to provide you with some relief, and/or to close off hallways

How to unlock Aspect & Fragments

It’s imperative that you get Stasis as soon as you can and shape it into your personal weapon.

Aspects and Fragments are big new additions that can modify and sculpt your classes even more so. There are quite a few steps before everything is unlocked and set in stone so strap yourselves in.

This is what you’ll need to do.

  1. Complete the Beyond Light Campaign – this should take you a few hours, depending on ability
  2. Obtain Stasis
  3. Speak to the Exo Stranger to start the Born in Darkness quest – only need to do part one for now
  4. Obtain the Salvation’s Grip exotic grenade launcher – Go to the Tower and speak to the Drifter to start this
  5. Speak to the Exo Stranger and accept and complete the Aspect of Control quest
  6. Find and destroy the five Entropic shards
  7. After this, commune with a shard of Darkness, defeat the enemies, and kill the boss – you now have your first Aspect
  8. Then talk to the Exo Stranger and accept Fragment quests – you can then pick two out of three Fragment quests per week

There you have it, a complete Stasis guide with information on Aspects and Fragments too, in Beyond Light.

More will obviously become available, and we’ll keep you up-to-date on any new information.

Destiny

Halo and Destiny creators Bungie working on a brand new game series

Bungie, the creators of Halo and Destiny, announced a ton of expansion plans for company in a brand-new press release – including the fact that it’s hoping to put out a brand new IP to the world within the next four years. 

If you’re a fan of Bungie, but not that interested in their hit first-person shooter Destiny, then there may be some good news in store for you – if you’re patient, that is.

In a press release earlier today, Bungie announced their immediate and long-term plans for expansion, including their plans for new IP. More specifically, the developer said that it plans to introduce a brand new IP “to market” before 2025.

Even though Bungie says it wants its new IP to be released before 2025, Destiny will still be a focus for them.

It’s important to point out that this doesn’t necessarily mean that the game will hit in 2025, but rather the company is hoping it’ll become available sometime before that window. It’s also entirely possible that it’ll get delayed beyond that point, so it’s important to not get your hopes up too too much, especially considering how fluctuating the games industry is.

Unfortunately, no hints were given about the specific IP that they’re working on. Additionally, it’s unknown how far into development the actual game is. It’s very possible that only preliminary plans are in place, or if it’s something that’s been in the works for years at this point.

Bungie
Destiny 2’s latest expansion was released towards the tail-end of 2020.

Bungie announced these plans amid a slew of hirings and expansions within the company. Tons of new board members have joined the independent studio, and the company announced that they have broken ground on a new expansion for its worldwide headquarters, which will help them further develop their games.

If you are a Destiny fan, there’s no worry that the devs will forget about that particular title, either: In the release, Bungie confirmed that it is committed to the “long-term development of Destiny 2 [and to] tell new stories in the Destiny Universe,” hinting that there’s more on the way horizon for that series.

All in all, this is pretty good news if you’re a Bungie fan. While it remains to be seen exactly what it has in store, it’ll certainly be interesting to find out in the near future.
