Bungie revealed the last Stasis subclass, the Revenant for Hunters. Their main inspiration was to make Hunters feel like ninjas with powers stemming from temperatures below zero.

Hunters tend to get some of the most exciting archetypes with their subclasses. They already have gunslinger and silent assassin fantasies nailed down and the next one is going to be an icy ninja.

Considering almost all of Hunter melee abilities are about throwing something, it is no surprise that the ninjas get freezing shurikens. It appears this ability will have more than one charge since it will take two hits to completely freeze a target. These projectiles also ricochet off the surfaces and enemies.

Glacier Grenade can erect crystal walls that will instantly freeze enemies caught inside. Besides immobilising enemies, the obvious benefit of this grenade is creating cover, not unlike the Titans' barricades.

Coldsnap Grenade explodes on impact and produces three waves of Stasis energy that will seek out nearby enemies to freeze them, which is a mechanic reminiscent of Swarm Grenades.

Duskfield Grenade creates a singularity-like field that tries to suck enemies in. If it succeeds or the enemy fails to escape it in time, they will get frozen.

Silence and Squal is the Super that refers to the names of the two conjured kamas. Hunters get to toss both when they activate the ability with the first kama detonates on impact and freezes everything in radius. The second kama, Squall, will embed itself into an enemy or surface where it lands and spawn a storm that will track foes in order to slow and damage them.
