[Top 7] Destiny 2 Best Armor Sets And How To Get Them

Destiny 2 Best Armor Sets
Clothes don’t make the man, armor on the other hand…


With a large range of plate armor, robes, and cloaks to choose from, which armor set should you pick to fit your Titan, Warlock, or hunter? We’ve sorted through the menagerie of armor to bring our top 7 armor sets and how you can nab them for yourself.

In Destiny 2, armor pieces come randomized with different elements (solar, arc, void), as well as stats like strength, resilience, recovery, discipline, intellect, and mobility. To top it off there are also a handful of mod slots to give your armor a little something extra in terms of perks. Due to this, even two pieces of the same type of armor can be different.

The List:

Since there are many factors and perks going into each individual piece of an armor set, it will fall down to how you want to look and if the armor you find gives you the traits you want. So, we will list the armor we think are the best looking and their intrinsic/combined curated perks that come with each set.

 We will list 2 armor sets for each class, and one final set for all classes at the end.

 

Our Top 2 Best Warlock Armor Sets

1. Exodus Down Set

The Exodus Down set is on this list because it really harkens back to the classic Warlock look in the first Destiny game. Making you look like a proper space wizard without too many extra frills. Since this is a restorative armor, it helps increase the rate at which your character heals. This also carries over to the ability Healing Rift, making it more effective.

Armor Type: Restorative

Curated Perks:

  • Restorative Warlock Armor: Improved Recovery
  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Increased Resilience
  • Mobility Enhancement Mod: Increased mobility

Lore:

  • The Exodus Down armor sets were created by Failsafe, who was the artificial intelligence of the crashed colony ship Exodus Black, it’s final resting being on Nessus. She had repurposed the flight suits of her long dead crew and combined it with her own coding to create these sets.
  • "I used some of my own code to program this armor! But if you die, it's your fault. Not mine."
  • — Failsafe

How to get Exodus Down armor set:

  • Players can acquire this armor from Failsafe on Nessus, after leveling up your faction rank with her. To level up your rank with Failsafe, simply complete the bounties and missions she provides.

 

2. Gunsmith’s Devotion Set

Next on our list is some sweet raid armor. This set gives you a dark, almost sinister flair with its design. It works really well with shaders and is fitting for a warlock who wants a little more armor than robe. Stat wise, this armor focuses on resilience; which increases your total health.

Armor Type: Heavy

Curated Perks:

  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Improved Resilience
  • Restorative Mod: Increased health recovery

Our Top 2 Hunter Armor Sets

1. Wildwood

Here’s some bushcraft fashion for the outdoorsman in us all. The Wildwood Hunter armor has the Heavy Hunter Armor perk, boosting resilience. It also sports other perks like mobility mods to maintain your agility. This set is somewhat reminiscent of a ghillie suit, perfect for that covert sniper look.

Armor Type: Heavy

  • Heavy Hunter Armor Mod: Improved Resilience
  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Increased Resilience
  • Mobility Enhancement Mod: Increased mobility

Armor Details: https://www.light.gg/db/legend/3790247699/collections/1605042242/armor/3...

Lore: 

  • You might remember Devrim Kay, a member of the City Militia who fights in the European Dead Zone on Earth. According to the description on the Wildwood class armor, he had designed these suits himself, which explains all that forest green and brown. 
  • "I don't know about you, but the EDZ has grown on me. Literally. The moss gets everywhere."
  • — Devrim Kay

How to get the Wildwood armor set:

  • Since Devrim designed this armor, it only makes sense that you acquire it from him. Level up your EDZ reputation by doing his quests and bounties to earn EDZ rewards and engrams.

 

2. Road Complex AA1

You’d think the futuristic cyber ninja aesthetic would get old after being around in so many forms of media. Turns out, it’s still really cool. The Road Complex AA1 hunter armor set is a Survivalist type armor, meaning it gives you a helpful boost in recovery after being attacked by enemies.

Armor Type: Survivalist

Curated Perks:

  • Survivalist Hunter Armor Mod: Improved Recovery
  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Increased Resilience
  • Mobility Enhancement Mod: Increased mobility

Armor Details: https://destinytracker.com/destiny-2/db/legends/3986530600-road-complex-...

Lore: 

  • There’s actually not much story behind this armor. However according to the descriptions of the pieces that make this set it seems to be connected to the Speaker in some way. How significant of a connection, we don’t know.  A mysterious past fitting for this ninja-esque armor.
  • "Travel far and travel wide, and know that you are always welcome home." —The Speaker

How to get the Road Complex AA1 armor set:

  • There’s not really a specific method to get this armor, you’ll simply have to earn through legendary engrams, faction rank-up packages, and loot drops from PvE and PvP.

 

Our Top 2 Titan Armor Sets

1. Devastation Complex

An aggressive looking set, the Devastation Complex armor is a darker version of the bright red Phoenix Strife set that you can get from Shaxx. This Titan armor emphasizes mobility, a trait that is the lowest in Titans. You’ll be able to close the distance much faster, as well as helping you make a “tactical retreat” (running away) quicker.

Armor Type: Mobility

Curated Perks:

  • Mobile Titan Armor Mod: Improved Mobility
  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Increased Resilience
  • Mobility Enhancement Mod: Increased mobility
  • Restorative Mod: Increased health recovery

Lore: 

  • The Grimoire Anthology revealed that this is the armor that was worn by Dredgen Yor. He was the infamous Titan who turned his back on humanity and murdered his fellow Guardians. The description on the armor piecesreflected the time when he was still a hero:
  • "Hope shall follow in the wake of your greatest deeds." —The Speaker

How to get the Devastation Complex armor set:

  • You can either acquire this armor through legendary engrams or buy them from Master Rahool in the tower.

 

2. Kerak Type 2

One of the most knightly Titan armors, the Kerak Type 2 is a big, bulky, and intimidating set. This armor is a restorative type, improving how efficiently you heal after being damaged. This suit is great for people who dream of being a space knight, which there are surprisingly a lot of, considering I often see fellow Titans wearing this set.

Armor Type: Restorative

Curated Perks:

  • Restorative Titan Armor Mod: Improved Recovery
  • Platsteel Reinforcement Mod: Increased Resilience
  • Mobility Enhancement Mod: Increased mobility

Armor Details: https://www.light.gg/db/legend/3790247699/collections/1605042242/armor/8...
