Hunter Knife - Community Thank You Screenshot

The Bladedancer's Super Ability, Arc Blade, powers up the Hunter Knife with Arc energy.

Beautiful lethality, relentless style.

Bladedancer is a Hunter subclass in Destiny.[1] The subclass is unlocked when any of a player's characters reach level 15. Bladedancer Hunters have abilities more focused on close-ranged combat as opposed to a Gunslinger Hunter.

The Bladedancer's Super Ability is Arc Blade. Arc Blade powers up the Hunter and their knife with Arc Light. The Hunter then slashes anything in their midst, dealing heavy damage and often killing most enemies.
