Destiny 2 Exotic Warlock Armor - Perks, How to Get Them & Locations

Destiny 2 Exotic Warlock Armor are hard-to-find equipment, designed to give your Guardian an edge. You can get exotic helmets, chest armor, boots and gauntlets, and every exotic armor piece for the Warlock has a special perk that will boost your character’s powers. Obtaining Warlock Exotic armor isn’t easy, though, and will require some effort. You’ll have to kill raid bosses and collect loot after completing the raid, go to the Cryptarch to open engrams, or go planet-hopping to do business with Xur for Legendary Shards. We’ve put together this guide and listed all Warlock Exotic armor in Destiny 2 to assist you, including how to get the equipment.

Warlock Exotic Helmets, Gauntlets, Boots & Chest Armor in Destiny 2

All Destiny 2 Exotic Warlock armor pieces need to be unlocked, either by completing raids and getting them as drops, or by decrypting engrams and seeing what’s inside. If that’s not your jam, you can instead opt to grind Legendary Shards and then go looking for Xur to purchase Exotic equipment from him. Really, both options are more or less equally difficult, but we know you won’t let that deter you. Nobody wants to pass up on those sweet perks the armor has to offer. So, to help you out on your quest, we’ve provided the list of all Warlock Exotic armor pieces. We’ve included information about how to unlock them for those that we’ve found.
