Everyone knows that Warlocks are the best class in Destiny 2, but what are the best Exotics to use with your space-faring wizard? In this guide, we will run through some of the best options for the different subclasses, and a couple of choice Exotics that will make the rest of your Fireteam love you.
For the current state of the game, where some of the strongest weapons are all Void damage, the Nezarec’s Sin is a superb Exotic. Kills with Void damage from any source will give you extra super energy, and with some of the strongest weapons in the game right now all being Void damage, Supers are easy to come by. If you want to drop Nova Bombs on enemies regularly, then this is the one for you.
Crown of Tempests
The Crown of Tempests is a go-to Exotic for Warlock’s who love the Stormcaller Super. While you zip around the level, frying enemies with your jazz hands, all those deaths feed back more energy, extending the length of your Super. This can make sections with a lot of adds a breeze, just make sure you don’t spend too long trying to focus down more powerful enemies with it.
The Lunafaction Boots are an Exotic that you wear for your team, not just yourself. These will cause your Rift ability to reload the weapons of anyone that is standing inside. They are a must for the vast majority of Raid boss fights, allowing an increase in DPS that just cannot be matched by anything else in the game.
Chaos Reach is one of the Warlock’s more fun Supers, allowing you to channel a beam of energy directly into the faces of anything in front of you. The Geomag Stabilizers will not only extend how long the Super lasts, it will also allow you to top up the last portion of Super energy that you need just by sprinting. So, you will be using Chaos Reach more often, and for much longer, which means a huge DPS buff.
The Chromatic Fire will cause any precision kills with a primary weapon to create explosions of your own classes energy. This means well places shots will not just take out your intended target, but also entire crowds of enemies. You can also pair it up with weapons like the Outbreak Perfected, or the Ace of Spades to really double down on additional damage.
We would argue that the Ophidian Aspect is the best Warlock PvP Exotic in the game. It extends the reach of your melee attack, allows you to ready weapons faster, and will also give you quicker reloads. Those are three strong perks that people will normally invest a lot of mods in to give them the edge in player vs player battles, and you can get them all in one neat looking Exotic.
