Destiny 2 is full of different weapons and armor pieces that players can obtain, but the rarest are Exotics. These powerful items can drastically change how your character or build works, allowing you to gain additional or unique abilities. However, since players can only wear one of these armor pieces at a time it’s important that you invest your resources effectively. When deciding on our list we decided to focus on exotics that functioned effectively in both PvE and PvP However, these five pieces of armor standout as the best pieces that a Warlock can wear thanks to their reliability and utility across all activities. Here are our choices for the 5 best Warlock Exotic armor pieces: (This list is in no particular order).
An exotic weapon can be equipped to any Guardian no matter their class, but armor is more specific; a Warlock helmet cannot be worn by a Hunter, for example. And that's a real shame in the case of this helmet, Eye of Another World, because any class would love to put it on their head.
This helmet not only looks super cool (seriously, Warlocks seem to always have the coolest looking gear) but its perk is one of the best in the game: Cerebral Uplink. What it does is two-fold, it highlights priority targets and improves the regeneration speed of grenades, melee, and Rift abilities. That's a lot of bonuses for a helmet that isn't specific to any subclass, making Eye of Another World a no-brainer pick for the best Warlock head around.
Mask of the Quiet One (Titan Head) As of now there are only two Titan exotic heads to choose from and that makes our pick of Mask of the Quiet One an easy one. This helmet sports another wild design, giving Titans a disquieting appearance with its face-shrouding chain mail, horns and pointy ears.
But it's not all about how it looks, it's what it does, and in this case, Mask of the Quiet One does quite a bit. First off, the helmet grants melee, grenade, and class ability energy when damaged, meaning that for each hit a Titan takes they gain a bit of a recharge on those abilities.
That in itself is pretty great for the Titan who likes to be in the thick of it, but if that Titan prefers the Sentinel subclass it gets even better. In addition to ability regeneration, Mask of the Quiet One also grants health regeneration with every void ability kill, making the Sentinel Titan who wears this helm and initiates their super near unstoppable!
Look out for these horned terrors in the Crucible. Hunters are rarely the most fashionable of Guardians. Sure, their hooded cloaks are cool but otherwise their style is more utilitarian than flashy. Still, it isn't style but substance that matters when it comes to exotic armor, and though Knuckleheard Radar kind of makes Hunters look like a cyclops, it is definitely the best exotic helmet offered.
Knucklehead Radar is an old favorite from Destiny 1 and it's easy to see why - useful by every subclass, this helmet allows a Guardian's radar to remain active when looking down a gun's sights. Simple? Yes. Effective? Oh yes. The MIDA Multi-Tool offers a similar perk, but for Hunters looking to use something else, a sniper rifle perhaps, and still avoid being snuck up on, this helmet is where it's at.
Back to Warlocks and their enviable fashion, we have what is another winner in the design department - Wings of Sacred Dawn. Players can actually grab this chest piece early on in the game, but that doesn't make it any less desirable once a Warlock is reaching their peak power level.
Formulated specifically for the Dawnblade subclass, this chest is one of two exotics available for Warlocks and choosing it as the best exotic chest is no contest. When equipped, Wings of Sacred Dawn allows Dawnblade Warlocks to briefly hover in midair while aiming their weapons. Making it all the more powerful, precision hits extend the duration of the effect.
And yes, this includes Dawnblade's super ability, allowing Warlocks to feel like an avenging angel as they fling flaming swords from on high. Hallowfire Heart (Titan Chest) A super ability is a Guardian's greatest strength, giving them immense power for a short time. Since it's only active for such a brief time, however, Guardians are known to hold on to their super ability, waiting for the perfect moment.
That's where this Titan chest comes in, Hallowfire Heart, an exotic chest that's just ideal for Sunbreaker Titans. It greatly improves the recharge rate on solar abilities while Hammer of Sol (the Sunbreaker's super ability) is charged and ready to fire, so while waiting for that most perfect moment to unleash hell, everything else gets a recharge boost. This means that grenades, melees, and Sunspots are ready that much sooner, giving Sunbreakers a lot of ways to wreck their enemies before finishing off what's left with their super.
Plus, your tummy looks like it's on fire and who doesn't love that? As you may have noticed, most exotic chests deal directly with a certain subclass and this Hunter chest is no different. Raiden Flux is perhaps the go-to piece of armor for Arcstriders, greatly enhancing the damage output and duration of their super ability. When equipped, Raiden Flux allows for quick, successive attacks with Arc Staff to increase the damage and duration, turning any Arcstrider into a stone-cold killer.
Admittedly, this chest is probably the wonkiest looking piece of armor out of the bunch, with its orange tubes hugging a Hunter's waist like a corset of Cheetos, but who cares when it allows you to level the competition with just a few, quick strikes. Karnstein Armlets (Warlock Arms) Warlock's already benefit from having the melee attack with the greatest range in Destiny 2, making it so they can easily slap enemies away like flies on a hot day.
Then comes Karnstein Armlets, a pair of exotic arms that make a Warlock's melee even better. Not specified for any subclass, these gauntlets are perfect for any Warlock who can't resist smacking their enemies around. With every melee attack, Karnstein Armlets grant health recovery in addition to melee, grenade, and class ability energy! These gauntlets are the absolute best Destiny 2 has to offer any Warlock, making it extra hard to ever want to equip another exotic.
Warlock's may have the greatest range with their melee, but if there's one class that's ready to punch its way out of any situation, it's Titans.
Thankfully, with these exotic arms equipped, Titans can punch further and harder than ever before! Synthoceps not only increase the range of a Titan's lunge, but it increases the damage of those punches when surrounded. So yes, with these gauntlets equipped it would be totally feasible for a Titan of any subclass to enter the fray and come out victorious without firing a single bullet.
What more can a punch-happy Titan wish for? Mechaneer’s Tricksleeves (Hunter Arms) Honestly, Hunters are lacking in the exotic gauntlet department, with only two choices - Young Ahamkara’s Spine and Mechaneer's Tricksleeves.
But unless you just love laying trip mines as a Nightstalker, it's Mechaneer's Tricksleeves all the way. Granted, their perk is only beneficial if your Hunter uses a sidearm, but if they do, then these arms allow for faster readying and reloading speed.
Having your weapon loaded and ready to go is certainly key if you're hoping to fire first, so in a lot of situations (Crucible in particular) these sleeves are just essential. The new Rift ability given to Warlocks is one of the best additions to Destiny 2, giving the class even more support abilities. In most cases, Warlocks can choose to have their Rift either heal or increase damage, with each option having its obvious advantages. However, with the Lunafaction Boots equipped, Warlocks of any subclass get another option - allow for their Rifts to also automatically reload weapons.
Just imagine, your Guardian is fleeing from an enemy and sees a Warlock's Rift, they dive into it and both their health return and ammo reloads! These boots can become a real game-changer, and all you need do is wear them. Dunemarchers (Titan Legs) Titans aren't the speediest of classes, but what they can lack in mobility they more than make up for in resilience. With these legs, however, you can have it both ways. Dunemarchers don't only increase a Titan's sprint speed, they also build up a charge while sprinting.
That charge can then be distributed to all surrounding enemies, damaging them, after hitting just one with a melee attack. In a sense, Dunemarchers transform one punch into many, dealing damage to anyone foolish enough to get too close. It's a useful mechanic for all subclasses, giving Titans only more reason to run straight into a fight.
Orpheus Rig (Hunter Legs) A piece of armor designed specifically for Nightstalkers, these legs are sure to be popular. Like so may exotic armor pieces, Orpheus Rig are intended to aid in regenerating energy for abilities, be they melee, grenade or class-related. This armor's perk, however, is tied directly to a Nightstalker's super ability, Shadowshot, allowing a Hunter with Orpheus Rig equipped to gain back ability energy for every enemy tethered.
And as any Nightstalker can tell you, when you fire Shadowshot into a crowd, a lot of enemies get tethered. Just think of how much each ability could recharge with a cluster of enemies tethered? These legs are a must have for any Nightstalker worth their salt. Plus, you get to sport some nifty looking Shadowshot arrows in a hip quiver, which for Hunters, is about as cool looking as you can get.
- Those are our picks for the best exotic weapons and armor currently available in Destiny 2? Did you favorite make it on our list? What weapon or piece of armor did we leave off that your Guardian can't live without? Leave us your thoughts in the comments!

For Argos and calus you do not want them on. I found vesper to be the best for Argos and calus. You can get a rift on almost every plate depending how many ppl are melee a dog for striking hand.
It’s nice tho. • Ghost Joker 5 meses atrás You can get the sunbracers in campaign, literally makes it the easiest play through. All you have to do is have top tree and healing rifts and you'll never die and burn every boss.
Only starts to fall short in end game bosses. But even then that burn is sick. Plus it doesn't mess with the regular recharge rate that the top tree give you for aerial kills.
So you should always have a grenade. And that should be able to recharge your melee and then you get 4-6 more. Plus you can wait a sec before you have to start the actual proc, the first one just requires you to throw a nade after the enchanced melee kill. Add in the crimson and you are basically a god....
• Squattingturtle 5 meses atrás Sunbracers have been glued to my arms since release, (which is ironic because they plagued me in D1). When they said i could be a sunsinger again i lost my shit.
The only problem i have is that the melee abilities are really weak and easy to waste since it has to be a melee ability kill. • A Praetorian 5 meses atrás I would say my list is 1. Lunafaction 2. Ophidian aspects 3. Vesper of radius (you can get a rift at every single plate of calus if you leave the dogs alive ) 4.nezeracs sin edit: I main voidwalker and mainly use void weapons expecially now with the tractor cannon / void ep shotty strats 5. Eye of another world , cause you get cooldowns on everything by default.
My build with this exotic has all grenade / class ability mods. Honorable mention - apotheosis veil. Very very good Number 1 pve- lunafaction Number 1- PvP - ophidian aspects. Ever since d1 I always run them in PvP. • burns0100 5 meses atrás My List as a Warlock Main would be a; 1. Lunafaction Boots, 2. Ophidian Aspects, 3. The Stag, 4. Transversive Steps, 5. Nezarec's Sin/Vesper of Radius. PvP list would be; 1. Ophidian Aspect, 2. Sanguine Alchemy, 3. The Stag, 4.
Apotheosis Veil, 5. Transversive Steps. Hope this helps some people find a useful exotic for their play style as almost all of them work extremely well outside of the number 1 spot as those are considered the best/go to for anything in that category. • Travis Marion 6 meses atrás I have mained a Warlock since D1 (vanilla Vault of Glass days), and honestly have never even used the Verity's Brow or Transversive Steps in Destiny 2.
Since 90% of the time I'm using the Devour subclass tree with the Void class you only need 5 kills to fully regenerate your grenade anyways.
And if I want extra speed, I'll just equip the MIDA Multi-Tool for the +2 Agility buff while equipped. Obviously with the changes to Lunifaction Boots they're the #1 in the game. The #2 Sunbracers are the only Exotic to use as a solar class. #5 Ophidian Aspect is a good general everyday use and the ONLY one to use in PvP.
The only other exotic I'd throw on this list and get rid of #3, #4 is the Eye of Another World. Grants an extra mod in all three categories (grenade, melee, and rift energy). Perfect for all around general use. Keep up the good work! • Travis Marion 5 meses atrás A Praetorian Awesome! Yeah I initially created my Warlock because I thought the super ability of self revive was more useful in raids with no revives available.
I created my Titan not too long afterwards for the utility of bubbles for the betterment of the team (mainly Weapons of Light for increased damage). And lastly I created a Hunter so I could run the sword and go invisible (initial strategies for Dark Below) against Crota. I like them all at different times, but definitely dislike the Hunter the most.
Think I had close to 400 raids in D1 and I'm currently approaching 200 in D2. • Wrench Viking 6 meses atrás I really like Winter's Guile and I feel like it's really underrated, especially when running Devour. Couple it with an aggressive mid-to-close-range weapon like Riskrunner, Crimson, or Huckleberry, (all of which also work great with Devour on their own), along with the EP Shotgun, (since Trench Barrel encourages you to use melee anyway), and you can become a nigh-unkillable whirlwind of close-quarters death.
You literally just eat your grenade and wade into wherever the adds and trash mobs are thickest and just lay waste to anything and everything. You can use one of the aformentioned weapons to close the gap, just start smacking the hell out of everything, gaining more and more Warlord's Sigil stacks, and then once you're at 5 stacks, find the nearest major, swap to your EP Shotgun and wail on him with melee hits until the stacks time out and then empty said shotgun into him.
Honestly, a synergistic build like this is tankier than even the beefiest Titan builds outside of the Ward of Dawn super and is way more fun. If I'm running anything solo with my Warlock where I don't need to run support for my teammates by using Lunefaction Boots, this is the build I run 90% of the time.
Share on: Destiny 2 is all about loot. Come get yours, cunning Warlocks. Warlocks are the trickiest class in Destiny 2, taking advantage of intricate builds and rewarding skilled play. Your Exotic armour choice makes a huge difference to how your Warlock will play; luckily, we have all the details right here on what each piece does.
This page is part of our , and is subject to change and updates as we explore the release build alongside all of you eager Guardians. Looking for other Exotics?
Check out our , including our list of in the game. Looking for a specific non-Exotic armour set to craft a perfect build? Check out our . Exotic Warlock helmets Canonically, Warlocks are the most cerebral of the three classes, being scholars and mages with a deep mystical connection to the Traveller. Perhaps that’s why they benefit from so many Exotic helmets, a couple of which are old favourites.
Crown of Tempests• Conduction Tines: Arc ability kills increase the recharge rate of your Arc abilities. • Bungie tried to keep the Stormcaller secret, but there’ll be no hiding the lightning storms once you have this Exotic on your bean. A lovely circular build starting point, just like Mama Warlock taught you.
Eye of Another World• Cerebral Uplink: Highlights priority targets and improves the regeneration speed of your grenade, melee, and rift abilities.
• I love how this one’s like “I vaguely indicate some things you might shoot … and also turn everything else up to 11, lol no biggie.” What the actual. Nezarec’s Sin• Abyssal Extractors: Void Damage kills grant ability energy. • Recharge your abilities when you use your abilities. Standard Warlock fare, the smug gits. Nezarec’s Sin was probably sending a PSN message with “ggez”. What a shithead. Skull of Dire Ahamkara• Actual Grandeur: Provides additional damage resistance during Nova Bomb.
Nova Bomb kills grant Super Energy • Oh, so Voidwalkers are harder to kill using their Super, and their Super charges their Super? No that’s fine I’ll just be over here in the Hunter corner, crying.
The Stag [Curse of Osiris]• Dearly Departed: Grants Rift energy when you are critically wounded. On your death, creates a brief healing rift on your corpse. • It’s back! And it’s quite different, although it still looks [kissy fingers]. Another Class ability Exotic, making you and your pals near immortal.
Exotic Warlock chest armour Warlocks aren’t allowed to wear much armour because it ruins their silhouette when they’re posing dramatically and thinking about their ineffable sadness, or whatever. The point is, you don’t pick a class with mandatory flowing trench coats and then ruin it with steel plate. There are only three chest armour Exotics for Warlocks, but they’re generally very beautiful. Wings of Sacred Dawn• Dawnstar Tome: When Dawnblade is equipped, aiming weapons while in the air suspends you in midair for a short time.
Precision hits extend this effect’s duration. • Who even cares what this one does, it is too gorgeous ever to take off. The good news is, all it does is make you hover while aiming, which means Hunters can shoot you down with ease. By all means, continue. Starfire Protocol• Fusion Harness: Provides an additional Fusion Grenade charge. Fusion grenade kills grant Rift energy.
• More grenades means more fun. More frequent Rift use is also a good time. Hard to argue with this returning D1 favourite. Vesper of Radius [Curse of Osiris]• Planetary Torrent: Rifts release an Arc shockwave when cast. Rift energy recharges faster when you are surrounded by enemies.
• Oh good yeah make it so Warlocks do damage as well as healing forever with their bloody Rifts, thanks Bungo, just what we needed. This is sarcasm. Exotic Warlock gauntlets Every Warlock thinks they’re Dr Strange but that open palm slap is not exactly finger gymnastics. Space magic! Get a gun like the rest of us.
Why would they, though, with this selection of five Exotics gauntlet sets to choose from? Karnstein Armlets• Vampire’s Caress: Melee attacks grant health recovery and ability energy • One of the D1 Warlock’s favourite tricks was to slap you and then gain power from it.
I see nothing has changed there. Sunbracers• Helium Spirals: Increases the duration of Solar Grenades and grants grenade energy on melee hits • Dawnblades already have giant flaming swords, but now they have additional chances to throw great flaming grenades. H-hooray. Winter’s Guile• Warlord’s Sigil: Eliminating enemies with melee attacks increases your melee damage • Get slap happy. I have nothing to add. I am in despair. Why are Warlocks like this.
Aeon Soul[Curse of Osiris]• Aeon Energy: Throwing grenades grants the following to nearby Aeon Cult allies: Grenade energy to Warlocks Barricade energy to Titans Dodge energy to Hunters Other allies receive a fraction of the shared energy. • Every class has an Aeon gauntlet and Aeon Cult allies just means teammates wearing ’em. Interestingly, only the Warlock version is linked to grenades; the others are triggered by Class abilities.
Presumably Warlocks need less incentive to use their obviously OP Rifts. Ophidian Aspect [Curse of Osiris]• Cobra Totemic: Weapons ready and reload very quickly. Melee range is extended. • [sobbing] Remember how Bungie turned off that trick Warlocks had of slapping you to death from a million miles away?
[sobbing continues] Exotic Warlock leg armour Do Warlocks actually wear trousers under there? They must do or every time they went flying around in that embarrassingly floaty way they do we’d all be mortified. There are only two Exotic leg armour sets for Warlocks though, because they’re hard to see, and one makes its return from D1.
Lunafaction Boots• Alchemical Etchings: Your Rifts gain the additional ability to automatically reload allies’ weapons. • Hey, you know that rad new class ability you’ve got that’s better than everyone else’s? Boom! It just got better. This works for your weapon as well, even if the wording doesn’t make that clear.
Transversive Steps• Strange Protractor: While Sprinting, movement speed is increased and energy weapons are automatically reloaded. • Hunters and Titans would be happy with just a speed boost but oh no, Warlocks also have their guns reloaded. Spoiled! You’re all spoiled. We’ll keep updating as more Warlock Exotics come to light in Destiny 2 and its add-ons.
