Unveiling the Best Hunter Exotics
We have meticulously reviewed and ranked all the Hunter Exotic armor available. In this article, we’ll focus on the cream of the crop, the Exotics that have earned the prestigious S-tier ranking for both PvE and PvP. Your choice of Exotic armor is crucial since it can elevate your entire build and subclass to unprecedented heights. Here are the top-tier Hunter Exotics we highly recommend:
- S Tier – Best: The crème de la crème of Hunter armor, offering unparalleled benefits.
- A Tier – Strong: Powerful choices that come close to the S Tier.
- B Tier – Average: Decent options that can be devastating in the hands of skilled players.
- C Tier – Weak: Mediocre choices that fall in the middle of the pack.
- D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these are not particularly impressive.

Unleash Your Hunter’s Style with the Best Armor Sets
Once you’ve acquired and Masterworked your desired Exotic armor piece, it’s time to pair it with legendary armor sets of the highest caliber.
While aesthetics are subjective, the finest-looking armor sets can generally be found in endgame content – as it should be. Endgame content offers the most challenging experiences and rewards players with the best gear available. Moreover, endgame armor sets often boast some of the highest stat distributions, making them perfect for enhancing a deadly Hunter build.
Hunter endgame armor primarily consists of Raid, Dungeon, and Trials of Osiris sets.
