Destiny 2 Idea Could Make Exotic Armor Better

A Destiny 2 fan has an idea to help make the game’s Exotic Armor even better. While some of these unique armor pieces are already pretty powerful, others aren’t quite what they’re boasted to be. The Destiny 2 fan believes their advice could help players find uses for Exotic Armor parts that were deemed less useful.

Bungie released Destiny 2 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2017, and the game will officially release a next-gen version in 2020. This FPS MMORPG casts players as power armored warriors known as “Guardians”. Their mission is to defend the remnants of humanity and an ancient entity called the Voyager from dark forces. Destiny 2 continues its ongoing story in the game’s expansion packs. The latest of these, Lightfall, launched in February and introduced a new enemy to face and explore a planet. According to some sources, the game continues to attract hundreds of thousands of players per day, with about 1.6 million players per month.

Reddit user and Destiny 2 player ProtoMonkey thought they could improve the game’s exotic armor pieces, and shared the idea on the Destiny 2 subreddit. Reddit users want Bungie to give each Exotic Armor part an Artifice Slot. This will allow players to equip an additional Artifact Armor Mod, making their build even more powerful. They think this is especially useful for relatively new Destiny 2 players who only have a handful of Exotic Armors.

The suggestion received mixed reactions on the Destiny 2 subreddit. Some people like the idea, while others feel that the existing Exotic Armor perks already provide enough of a boost that they don’t need anything else. Still more commenters suggest this works, but only if it’s implemented in a specific way, otherwise it could break the balance of the game. In the meantime, alternative suggestions include simply increasing Exotic Armor’s base stats.

Some Destiny 2 players also pointed out that ProtoMoney wasn’t the first to suggest adding Artifice Slots to Exotic Armor. However, this proposal doesn’t work because the Exotic Armor perk technically counts as a used mod slot, preventing Bunge from adding more. While this explanation may seem odd, the number of slot machines is hardcoded into the game and cannot be changed. Still, this could be an excellent way to improve Destiny 2 Exotic armor, and it’s possible that Bungie will find a way around it, given enough interest and time.

Destiny 2 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
