Destiny 2 Best Exotic Armor For Titans

Titans in Destiny 2 represent the pinnacle of strength and resilience, embodying the roles of frontline warriors and protectors. They charge into battle wearing imposing armor, using a combination of brute force and strategic defense. Titans are perfect for close-quarters combat, using their physical prowess to deliver devastating melee attacks while shielding their fire team members from damage.

Titans have some of the most potent exotic armor pieces in Destiny 2, providing benefits such as increased movement speed and the ability to defeat enemies from long distances in a single hit. Making the ideal exotic setup for Titans can result in highly rewarding gameplay, making them both enjoyable to play and frustrating for opponents. 

What are the best Exotic Armor for Titans in Destiny 2?

With so many exotic options in the game, let's look at the top ten Titan exotics and their strengths and effectiveness in PvP and PvE activities.

10. Cuirass Of The Falling Star

The lightning from the farthest cloud strikes the hardest.

Thundercrash fans now have an Exotic that elevates this dynamic Super to one of Destiny 2's highest DPS options. This Exotic doubles Thundercrash's impact damage and provides an overshield to cover long distances, increasing the Super's safety. However, this Exotic has little utility outside of Super usage, making it a specialized "Swap" exotic for specific situations.

This exotic excels in PvE activities, including end-game content, because it allows you to survive after dealing massive damage to bosses. However, there are better options for PvP activities. Swap exotics like this one are less popular in PvP because they rely on complex mechanics and the need for fast loading times.

Exotic Perk: 

"Greatly increases your Thundercrash impact damage. Gain an overshield that lasts longer the farther you travel before striking a target."


9. Antaeus Wards

Do you believe in the Gaiaforms, the energies within planets?

Antaeus Wards remains a top Titan pick despite a recent nerfs in which deflecting damage now consumes all your class ability energy. Even after the Nerf, it remains among the best neutral game exotics for Titan players in PvP. The main perks of these exotic, reflective vents are that they improve sliding by providing a reflective over-shield that can bounce projectiles back when sliding after a sprint. 

Titans can use this unique ability to aggressively slide into confrontations with shotgun or fusion rifle users, while the Reflective Vents protect them from incoming attacks. This Exotic armor encourages Titans to take risks in PvP. Although opponents can try to counter it with weapons like Conditional Finality or techniques to suspend and freeze incoming Titans, these methods are usually insufficient. 

Exotic Perk: 

"Improved slide. Sliding after sprinting for a short time reflects incoming projectiles."


8. Lion Rampant

All expect that you should rouse yourself, as did the former lions of your blood.

The Lion Rampant is the only exotic gear for Titans that improves jump capabilities and overall maneuverability. This exotic allows Titans to stay airborne for longer, extending the duration of all Lift abilities by 4 seconds. This change significantly alters the mobility dynamics of Titans, who are not known for their agility. 

Lion Rampant shines only in PvE activities as they do not provide any additional benefit in PvP modes. Lion Rampant is especially useful for navigating jumping puzzles in raids and dungeons, so keep a pair in your inventory for those moments when enhanced movement is required.

Exotic Perk: 

"Provides additional aerial maneuverability and enables accurate hipfire while you're in the air during Lift."


7. Stronghold

I am a shield unto myself.

Stronghold, a unique armor piece, is a must-have for sword enthusiasts. Currently, it is regarded as one of the most powerful Exotic armor for any class in PVE. This item improves the Guard stats of swords and significantly reduces damage taken while blocking with them. 

Furthermore, quickly attacking targets after blocking shots with a sword results in "restoration over a period based on the number of shots blocked." With the addition of Restoration and significant damage mitigation during blocking, these Gauntlets are highly recommended for players looking to use a sword in endgame activities.

Exotic Perk: 

"Maximizes guard stats on equipped Swords. You take reduced damage while blocking with a Sword. Rapidly damaging targets after blocking shots with a Sword grants restoration for a duration determined by the number of shots blocked."


6. Pyrogale Gauntlets

Reach the combustion point.

The Pyrogale Gauntlets are a fantastic solar exotic option for Titans, with a unique exotic perk that converts the Burning Maul super into a single, high-damage hammer slam. This action creates five swirling flames, significantly increasing the Exotic's appeal during the DPS phases. However, its effectiveness decreases against airborne bosses, where the modified attack fails to make an impression. 

Apart from upgrading the Burning Maul, these gauntlets improve the Consecration Aspect by generating a small Fire Cyclone, increasing its utility. Even with this specific use, top Solar Titan setups show the versatility of the class, offering many more options than the Pyrogale Gauntlets.

Exotic Perk: 

"Modifies Burning Maul into a single high-damage slam of your hammer that creates five cyclones of flame. Consecration's second slam creates a cyclone of flame."


5.  Loreley Splendor Helm

"I don't know what it means

That I am so sad

A legend of bygone days

That I cannot keep out of my mind." —Die Lorelei, Heinrich Heine

Loreley Splendour Helm is an excellent exotic choice for solar titan builds. This helmet's exotic perks can significantly improve your survivability, even in the end-game PvE activities. Despite the nerf, Lorely remains a top choice for high-level content. With the right build, players can reach near-immortality. 

Equipping this exotic allows you to create a Sunspot, which heals the player. This ability can be triggered by being critically injured while possessing total class ability energy or whenever the player employs their Barricade ability. Sunspots provide double the average rate of health regeneration, resulting in significant healing for the player.

Exotic Perk: 

"When you have Sun Warrior, your Sunspots heal you. When you are critically wounded, create a Sunspot at your location."


4. Synthoceps

Caution: the organism has been known to develop consciousness. In these cases, immediate termination is recommended.

Synthoceps is an excellent exotic for PvP players, particularly those who enjoy close-quarters combat. This exotic increases melee range, allowing for longer lunges against enemies. Furthermore, when surrounded by enemies, it increases melee and Super damage, potentially allowing players to kill Guardians with a single punch when outnumbered. It's an excellent option for players who prefer melee combat to gunfire.

In PvP, the extended melee reach is highly effective, and the increased damage can be combined with other perks to achieve devastating one-punch kills. Furthermore, Synthoceps is a component in many effective PvE builds.

Exotic Perk: 

"Increased melee lunge range. Improved melee and Super damage when you're surrounded."


3. Peacekeepers

Designed for the seamless delivery of justice in an unjust world.

Submachine guns have long been a dominant force in the PvP scene, and their popularity has only grown with the release of The Immortal. Peacekeepers will likely be a top choice for those who enjoy this weapon category on multiple occasions. Equipping Peacekeepers improves SMGs, allowing for a more aggressive approach in PvP.

The perks provided by the exotic are excellent, transforming almost all SMGs into easily manageable weapons. The improved mobility, sprint, and slide capabilities make these boots ideal for players who prefer an aggressive playstyle that matches the typical SMG user profile.

Exotic Perk: 

"Reloads stowed Submachine Guns and allows you to ready them instantly. Improves your handling with SMGs and your movement while wielding one."


2. Dunemarchers

Whether on solid rock or shifting sand dune, the inexorable Sand Eaters never slow their pace.

Dunemarchers is outstanding for clearing enemies in PvE, boosts your movement capabilities, and can take down weakened opponents from afar in PvP, making it a top-tier choice. The boost in speed and maneuverability makes Titans feel more agile and less cumbersome compared to other classes.

Dunemarchers are the go-to Exotic for Titans seeking enhanced mobility in PvP. They offer increased Sprint Speed and Slide Distance naturally, empowering your melee attacks to spread electricity to nearby enemies after sprinting for 1.5 seconds. The lightning quickly eliminates any weak Guardians nearby. If the lightning strike doesn't kill them, a few shots from a Hand Cannon or your primary weapon will.

Exotic Perk: 

"Increases sprint speed. Sprinting builds up a static charge. After melee-attacking an enemy, that charge will chain damage to nearby enemies."


1. Heart of Inmost Light

On the cusp between life and light, between death and destruction.

Despite its complexity, Heart of Inmost Light is one of Titans' top neutral game Exotics. This Exotic can turn your abilities into lethal weapons capable of one-shotting enemies while significantly shortening cooldown times for all abilities. Despite many adjustments, Heart of Inmost Light remains a strong option. Its ability to quickly regenerate abilities is still crucial, making it better than many other choices.

This exotic is excellent for reducing your ability cooldowns, making it a good choice if you enjoy using ability builds. However, this exotic is not great for PvP activities because it does not provide damage buffs like other exotics. 

Exotic Perk: 

"Using an ability (grenade, melee, or Barricade) empowers the other two abilities. Empowered means abilities have faster regen, melees, and grenades do more damage, and Barricades have more hit points."

How to get Exotic Armor

One of the simplest and most frequent methods to acquire new exotic armor pieces in Destiny 2 is through Solo Lost Sectors. Each day, a different Lost Sector is randomly selected from various game locations. Players have a 24-hour window to earn Exotic armor and Enchantment Cores by completing the Lost Sector solo. Additionally, exotic armor can be obtained by decoding exotic engrams and is available for purchase from Xur.
