Creating the perfect Guardian for your playstyle in Destiny 2 is more than just selecting the right subclass and perk cluster, it’s about collecting armor, especially if it’s Exotic armor. Exotic Armor is returning in Destiny 2, with some old favorites making an appearance and some new items being added to the roster.
While not of the Exotic Armor pieces are currently known, below is a collection of all the pieces revealed or leaked so far. We will continue update the list as we discover new items! Be sure to check out the Destiny 2 Exotic Weapons list for every Exotic weapon in the game.
Titan Exotic Armor
There are a few returning Titan Exotic Armor pieces, but a lot of them are new to Destiny. One of the most interesting pieces would have to be the Lion Rampant leg pieces that "provide additional aerial maneuverability" which is likely the new version of Twilight Garrison.
|Titan||Exotic Name||Intrinsic Perk||Description|
|Insurmountable Skullfort||Transfusion Matrix||Kills with Arc melee abilities trigger health regeneration and restore Melee energy.|
|Mask of the Quiet One||Dreaded Visage||Grants ability energy when damaged, and health regeneration when inflicting Void damage.|
|ACD/0 Feedback Fence||Fury Conductors||Melee kills build up explosive energy within the ACD/0 Feedback Fence. Being struck by a melee attack unleases this energy in a devastating explosion.|
|Doom Fang Pauldron||Horns of Doom||Shield Bash melee kills recharge Shield Throw. Melee Ability kills recharge Sentinel Shield Super.|
|Synthocepts||Biotic Enchancements||Increased melee lunge range. Improved damage when surrounded.|
|Actium War Rig||Auto-Loading Link||Steadily reloads a portion of your equipped Auto Rifle's magazine from reserves.|
|Crest of Alpha Lupi||Survival Well||Generates another Orb of Light from Supers and a healing pulse when Barricade is activated.|
|Hallowfire Heart||Sunfire Furnace||Greatly improves the recharge rate of your Solar abilities when Hammer of Sol is charged.|
|Dunemarchers||Linear Actuators||Increases sprint speed. Sprinting builds up a static charge. After meleeing an enemy, the charge will chain damage to nearby enemies.|
|Lion Rampant||Jump Jets||Provides additional aerial maneuverability.|
|Peacekeepers||Mecha Holster||Reloads stowed Submachine Guns and allows you to ready them instantly.|
Hunter Exotic Armor
Though we know the names of all the Hunter Exotic Armor pieces, there are some blank spaces as to what they actually do. All the Gauntlets are still unknown, as is the Knucklehead Radar. If Destiny is anything to go by, Knucklehead Radar is likely to keep the radar active while aiming down sights, which is a huge addition when considering the time it takes the radar to re-appear once you finish ADSing.
|Hunter||Exotic Name||Intrinsic Perk||Description|
|Celestial Nighthawk||Hawkeye Hack||Modifies Golden Gun to fire a single, high damage shot. Victims killed by the shot explode.|
|Foetracer||Relentless Tracker||Visually marks targeted enemies.|
|Knucklehead Radar||Upgraded Sensor Pack||Provides radar while aiming.|
|Mechaneer’s Tricksleeves||Spring-Loaded Mounting||Increases Sidearm ready and reload speed.|
|Young Ahamkara’s Spin||Wish-Dragon Teeth||Increases Tripmine Grenade duration and marks enemies damaged by the blast.|
|The Dragon’s Shadow||Quicksilver Mail||Grants increased movement and weapon handling speed for a short time after Dodging.|
|Lucky Raspberry||Probability Matrix||Increases the chaining capabilities of Arc Bolt Grenades and has a chance to recharge it each time it deals damage.|
|Raiden Flux||Synapse Junctions||Quick successive attacks with Arc Staff increases its damage output and duration.|
|Lucky Pants||Illegally Modded Holster||Increases Hand Cannon ready speed and initial accuracy.|
|Orpheus Rig||Uncanny Arrows||Provides ability energy for each enemy tethered by Shadowshot anchors.|
|ST0MP-EE5||Hydraulic Boosters||Increases sprint speed and slide distance. Improves jump.|
Warlock Exotic Armor
There is shockingly little information out there regarding Exotic Armor for the Warlock, however, it is nice to see that Warlocks will in fact be receiving Exotic Leg Armor straight out of the gate, instead of having to wait three years for some average boots. It will be interesting to see what all the Gauntlets do, but I'm guessing the Sunbracers will be sold by Xur for the first five weeks.
|Warlock||Exotic Name||Intrinsic Perk||Description|
|Crown of Tempests||Conduction Tines||Arc ability kills increase the recharge rate of your Arc abilities.|
|Eye of another World||Cerebral Uplink||Highlights priority targets and improves the regeneration of your Grenade, Mlee, and Rift abilities.|

|Skull of Dire Ahamkara||Actual Grandeur||Provides additional damage resistance during Nova Bomb. Nomb Bomb kills grant Super energy.|
|Karnstein Armlets||Vampire's Caress||Melee attacks grant health recovery and ability energy.|
|Sunbracers||Helium Spirals||Increases the duration of Solar Grenades and grants energy on melee hits.|
|Winter's Guile||Warlord's Sigil||Eliminating enemies with melee attacks increases your melee damage.|
|Starfire Protocol||Fusion Harness||Provides an additional Fusion Grenade charge. Fusion Grenade kills grant Rift energy.|
|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.|
|Lunafaction Boots||Alchemical Etchings||Your Rifts gain the additional ability to automatically reload allies' weapons.|
|Transversive Steps||Strange Protractor||While Sprinting, movement speed is increased and energy weapons are automatically reloaded.|
