Exotic Weapon:

Exotic Pulse Rifle the Vigilance Wing

Name: Vigilance Wing

Weapon Type: Pulse Rifle

Exotic Perk: Harsh Truths – This weapon fires a 5-round burst. When a nearby ally is killed, gain health regeneration and increased movement speed.

Pros: Surprisingly low recoil for the 5 shots, great at closing down lanes. Noticeable difference in the gun when player is last Guardian standing. More of a PvP gun.

Cons: Perks wont activate if running PvE content solo. In a 1v4 scenario perks wont help that much. Long amount of time firing the 5 bullets.

Recommended: Interesting teamwork centered weapon, but if players run a lot of PvE content solo the perk wont proc. In PvP, the gun can hold down a lane well, but with the MIDA Meta, players will constantly get out gunned.

Hunter Exotic:

Exotic Hunter Helmet the Foetracer

Name: Foetracer – Helmet

Equipped Armor Mod: Energy Bracket Mod

Exotic Perk: Relentless Tracker – Visually marks targeted enemies. Deals more damage to low-health marked enemies.

Pros: Effectively makes the Keen Scout perk from the Nightstalker always active. Increases damage to low health tracked targets.

Cons: Not very useful in PvE, enemies are easy enough to track there.

Recommended: Highly recommended for PvP if you are the type of player that likes to see where enemies are and how they are moving.

Titan Exotic:

Titan Exotic Helmet An Insurmountable Skullfort

Name: An Insurmountable Skullfort – Helmet

Equipped Armor Mod: Arc Impact Mod

Exotic Perk: Transfusion Matrix – Kills with Arc melee abilities trigger health regeneration and restore melee energy.

Pros: Arc melee kills give health regen and effectively shortens the cooldown of the Titan’s melee ability.

Cons: Player has to get the kill with the melee ability for the perk to proc. Not very reliable against yellow barred enemies and tricky to time in PvP.

Recommended: Can work well in PvE when doing missions and patrols. Not recommended for activities with tougher enemies since the perk only activates on a kill.

Warlock Exotic:

Warlock Exotic Helmet the Nezarec’s Sin

Name: Nezarec’s Sin – Helmet

Equipped Armor Mod: Energy Bracket Mod

Exotic Perk: Abyssal Extractors – Void-damage kills increase ability energy recharge rate.

Pros: Void-damage kills from any source increases ability recharge rate. As long as the player is using Void weapons along side their abilities, cooldowns are super fast.

Cons: Has to be void kills and the energy you get back is very small for each perk activation. Multikills while perk is up don’t increase the energy you get.

Recommended: Great PvE exotic for Voidwalker Warlocks. If the player is running with Void Energy and Power weapons, they can get the perk to activate often fully benefiting from it.
