Armor is featured quite prominently in Destiny with a wide assortment of pieces specifically tailored to each class of Guardian, and armor for general use by all classes.[1] Each type of armor has their own bonuses and abilities that are meant to be synergistic with the player's subclass and weapons.

Overview[edit]

There are six different categpories of armor Guardians can equip: Helmets, Gauntlets, Chest Armor, Legs, Boots, and Class Armor. The last slot, class armor, is unique to each class; Hunters can wear cloaks, Warlocks can wear bonds, and Titans can sport Marks.[2] Colors (including dyes) and decals are available.[3] Class armor offers no increase to defense and is mostly aesthetic, but higher-ranking class armors are larger and more ornate than default or other lower-ranking ones. For example, a Hunter will start out with a plain white scarf without a hood, but can acquire a more decorative hooded cloak, especially one that distinguishes certain achievements.[4]

Rarity of armor is color coordinated into five tiers: Basic (white), Uncommon (green), Rare (blue), Legendary (purple), and Exotic (gold).[1]
