Here Are The 40 ‘Destiny 2’ Exotic Armor Pieces That Still Don’t Have Ornaments

Yesterday, Bungie revealed that they would be partnering with a community artist for a new Destiny 2 exotic ornament, where players will first vote on one of three weapons to get an ornament (Arbalest, Sweet Business, Rat King), and then will vote on three concepts for the winning one.

This is a cool idea, and yet I kept thinking about how I wish this was instead a contest to make an exotic ornament for a piece of Destiny 2 armor that does not have one. Because with constantly changing metas, I keep running into situations where suddenly useful exotics are totally killing my fashion game.

Here is the complete list of Destiny 2 exotics that still do not have exotic ornaments, from what I can tell. Some are new, but many are really, really old. I had no idea there were this many, though. I’m bolding the ones I think need ones the most:

warlock

  • Verity’s Brow (Helmet)
  • Apotheosis Veil (Helmet)
  • Felwinter’s Helmet (Helmet)
  • Dawn Chorus (Helmet)
  • Aeon Soul (arms)
  • Claws of Ahamkara (Arms)
  • Contraverse Hold (Arms)
  • Nothing Manacles (Arms)
  • Osmiomancy Gloves (Arms)
  • Starfire Protocol (Chest)
  • Sanguine Alchemy (Chest)
  • Promethium Spur (Legs)
  • Secant Filaments (Legs)
  • Rain of Fire (Leg)

Titan

  • Loreley Splendor (Helmet)
  • Aeon Safe (Arms)
  • Ashen Wake (arms)
  • Wormgods Caress (Arms)
  • Icefall Mantle (Arms)
  • Second Chance (Arms)
  • Severance Enclosure (Chest)
  • Hoarfrost Z (Chest)
  • Peacekeepers (Legs)
  • MK .44 Stand Asides (Legs)
  • Antaeus Wards (Legs)
  • Peregrine Greaves (Legs)

Hunter

  • Assassin’s Cowl (Helmet)
  • Blight Ranger (Helmet)
  • Mechaneer’s Tricksleeves (Arms)
  • Aeon Swift (Arms)
  • Sealed Ahamkara Grasps (Arms)
  • Khepri’s Sting (Arms)
  • Renewal Grasps (Arms)
  • Caliban’s Hand (Arms)
  • Lucky Raspberry (Chest)
  • The Sixth Coyote (Chest)
  • Raiju’s Harness (Chest)
  • Frosties (Legs)
  • The Bombardiers (Legs)
  • Radiant Dance Machines (Legs)

Adding in Dragon’s Shadow for Hunters because it has an ornament but it sucks.

So, what dictates why some armor pieces have three ornaments but others have zero? My guess is that there’s a pretty big factor of usage rate, where Bungie is more predisposed to make ornaments for the exotics players use the most often. It’s just that in recent times when things have gotten buffs or new uses, we keep circling back to old options that are suddenly viable, but look terrible. It’s a risk making a new ornament for an old exotic, but I’d like to see every exotic in the game get at least one option at some point. Except Apotheosis Veil. I’m never going to wear that for any reason.
