Competitive multiplayer is a nightmare in any game, and Bungie’s flagship franchise is no exception. So, if you want to really make a splash in the Crucible, play Titan and use these five best Titan Exotic armor pieces in Destiny 2 PvP.
The Best Titan Exotic Armor for PvP in Destiny 2
For an item to make this list, it needed to do two things:
- Increase overall lethality.
- Have almost no drawback.
Additionally, it can’t have been on the receiving end of a recent nerf (I’m looking at you, Anteaus Wards). I picked five armor pieces from across all four armor slots that can take an Exotic, though some get more of a spotlight than others. All of them are borderline busted, however.
To make things a little easier, these links will help you jump down to each of my choices:

You will never convince me that Synthoceps aren’t worth their weight in gold. Longer melee lunge range and damage when surrounded empowered Super abilities, and some of the best-looking ornaments in the game? Yeah, there are no drawbacks here. You would be surprised how far your melee lunge can be and how hard you’ll hit if you rush headlong into the enemy team. Synthoceps also synergize with every subclass in the game and with almost any build you can imagine. Sure, they aren’t flashy, and the benefits they provide are pretty simple. But simple is almost always the best, and that’s been true as long as Destiny 2‘s been around.
Need to clear a room of enemies with a single well-timed shoulder charge — or just a single charged melee ability punch? Dunemarchers are for you. So long as you’re constantly sprinting, they build up charge, one they discharge when you connect fist to enemy face. They’ve been tuned and re-tuned over Destiny 2‘s lifespan, but they remain one of the best Titan Exotics for PvP. Just don’t expect your enemies to like you for using them.
No, One-Eyed Mask is not nearly as busted as it once was, but it still provides some of the most powerful benefits a Titan can ask for this side of Banner of War. You’ll be able to see the enemy that last hit you for eight seconds, and if you kill them, you get an Overshield. I’m sorry to say that OEM no longer makes you basically invincible, but if you play to its strengths, it’s still a very good choice.
Stasis builds in PvP are a bit more niche than they used to be, especially with the addition of Strand and subclass 3.0. However, if you build around Stasis shards for damage output and resistance, you can become even more the Juggernaut than a Stasis Titan usually is. The Hoarfrost-Z turns your Tower Barricade into a wall of Stasis crystals that drop shards when destroyed. It’s essentially a full kill of Armor Charge and buffs whenever your Barricade is available.
ACD/0 Feedback Fence
The ACD/0 Feedback Fence is kind of Dunemarchers at home, but if you don’t have Dunemarchers or would rather not use an Exotic in your leg armor slot, they are a worthy substitute. The Feedback Fence is also a great option to build into melee room clearing for AoE, something Synthoceps struggles with. Hitting with a melee attack grants Armor Charge, which reduces incoming melee damage and sends out a burst of Arc energy depending on the amount of Armor Charge expended. If you plan on going full unga, this Exotic might be for you.
Those are our picks for the top five best PvP Exotics for Titan. The first three on our list are just this side of game-breaking and will win you no friends, but salt is part of any PvP experience.
