Style is the name of the game in Destiny 2. Figuring out how to make your Hunter look great is luckily not hard, since Bungie has given us many great armor sets over the years. Hunters have some of the best fashion sets in the game, so let’s take a look at the top 10 best looking Destiny 2 Hunter armor sets in 2023! We’ll start by looking at just the cloaks for the sets, then move onto the complete sets and a few shaders for our top 5 picks.
Best Hunter Fashion Sets in Destiny 2, Ranked Slick to Stunning
Let’s get into Destiny 2’s best looking Hunter armor sets!
Where to Get: Europa quests
The Crystocrene suit is included because it gives the Guardian a backpack (a cool one, at that) and is essentially just a thick winter outfit. The rest of the suit, other than the cloak/backpack, all help add to the deep winter aesthetic. It’s the perfect suit to encompass the Europa planet, which is good since you’ll be spending a lot of time on Europa to get it. Getting this suit requires completing the Beyond Light campaign and doing some missions on Europa, so it will take a while if you haven’t done all that yet. It’ll definitely be worth it, though.
Where to Get: Prophecy dungeon
The Flowing suit is very odd, but in a way that makes it even better. The head piece has a really strange helmet, but it works with the rest of the suit. If you wanted to swap out the head piece for a different one, no one would blame you though. The Prophecy gear all has a unique, almost “bleak” aesthetic that allows for this weird kind of armor. We’re not complaining, though, because it’s among the best weird armor in the game.
Resonant Fury Suit
Where to Get: Vow of the Disciple raid
There’s a very unnatural vibe to the Vow of the Disciple armor. The way some pieces move (including the weird, spine-like thing on the cloak pictured above), never fails to be somewhat unsettling. It almost makes the armor look like it’s breathing. But while it is admittedly strange, it works well together and makes for a set of armor that is immediately identifiable. Is it subtle or “nice”? No, not really. But it is very eye-catching, which is exactly what it was meant to be. And it is actually quite a bit more sleek than it has any right to be, considering how weird it is.
Where to Get: Shadowkeep campaign
All of the Dreambane armor is among the best, and the Hunter variant is no exception. Every piece of this set has a unique look that makes it stand out. The helmet, for instance, has large and empty eyes, which make it great for many different fashion/cosplay builds. Overall, if you’re looking for a set that stands out and has fantastic little details with lore behind them, this is the one to go for. Just be ready to play through the Shadowkeep campaign to get it.
TM-Earp Custom Suit
Where to Get: Spire of the Watcher dungeon
The TM-Earp Custom Suit has been on all three class armor set lists we’ve done recently. This suit proves that Old West-themed gear always does well in these kinds of games. Few things could have excited Hunter players more than a cloak that has a cool cape and a cowboy hat. The rest of the suit works well to match this aesthetic, and it usually shades really well, too. This is the prime set for style, even if the hat is definitively the best part.
Errant Knight 1.0 Suit
This is another of the simpler suits on this list. The Errant Knight suit doesn’t try to do anything crazy. It’s simply a cool suit that has an assassin vibe. It looks like the kind of suit that would be used to cosplay Assassins Creed characters, if you don’t want to pay for the official Assassins Creed crossover stuff. And honestly, I think this suit looks a bit better than those did, anyway, while also having a unique appearance that not enough people care about.
Shaders: Regal Daring, War Weary, Golden Trace
In terms of shaders, this suit works well most of the time. For the more complimentary shaders like Regal Daring and Golden Trace, most of the suit shades really well. But with shaders with more standout colors, like the orange in War Weary, it can look odd sometimes. The middle piece of the chest doesn’t usually look great with vibrant colors, but maybe you could make it work. Most of the generically “cool” or popular shaders like Jacarina or Carbon Blood will definitely look great on this one, though.
Woven Firesmith Suit
The Woven Firesmith Suit has a menacing aesthetic, made even better by the contrasting red and gray on its default shader. If you want your Hunter to look like it might secretly be on the bad side, this is a fantastic option. This set also has lots of little details that make it look more fleshed out. Particularly, look at the detail put into the shoulders, the helmet, and the legs. It’s all great stuff.
Shaders: Tidesmoke, Metropolitan Acoustics, Seraphim Cloak.
The darker shaders with less drastic colors like Tidesmoke tend to look great on this set. For brighter shaders, the results are mostly hit or miss. Metropolitan Acoustics, for example, looks pretty solid (if you’re going for a vibrant color scheme), but some look messy. Seraphim Cloak looks okay on this set, but the greens do get overshadowed. Focus on darker colors or vibrant ones that contrast well, like green and blue, for this suit.
The Pathfinder suit is sleek, simple, and stylish. The material of the suit itself has a leathery look that adds to the uniqueness, and it has a fantastic color scheme. The deep blue and more vibrant pink look great together. And, as would be expected, this suit takes shaders really well.
Shaders: Grand Luster, Watermelon, Dreaming Spectrum
Honestly, all different kinds of shaders work on this suit. This is such a flexible set aesthetically, and you can really do whatever you want with it. It’s especially nice to see that the eyes also change with shaders, as a lot of suits don’t do that. This is a great set for shaders overall.
The armor sets from the King’s Fall raid are some of the best Bungie have ever made. The most notable part of the Darkhollow suit is the bone on several pieces, which is a common aesthetic across the King’s Fall loot. The design and detail on this suit are nearly unmatched. The default design is great, and it works much better with shaders than you might imagine.
Shaders: Carbon Blood, Ensilvered Snare, Omnichronia
The best looking shaders for this suit are the darker ones with subtle aspects, like Carbon Blood. However, there are lots of other shaders that look good with this suit as well. An example is Ensilvered Snare (in the middle), which looks great even though the bone parts don’t usually shade well. This can be seen better on the Omnichronia suit on the right. Sometimes the bone parts on the suit just don’t look great with shaders, but you can definitely find a bunch that work well with it.
Great Hunt Suit
There’s nothing not to love about the Great Hunt suit. From the flair on the shoulders and legs to the contrasting colors, nearly everything about this suit is fantastic. It has a very sleek aesthetic that can only be found with a few other suits, which is thanks largely to its simplicity. It shows how a suit doesn’t have to be gimmicky or overcomplicated to be great. You can see how well designed it is based on how well it works with so many shaders.
Shaders: Scarlet Semblance, Queensgrace, Transcendental Ambition
This is one of few suits that can work with any kind of shader. From deeply contrasting ones like Queensgrace to more complimenting ones like Scarlet Semblance, they all look great. This set is always going to look good, even if you prefer weirder shaders. Having this kind of versatility is convenient and fun, and it’s one of the reasons this is the best Hunter armor set for fashion in Destiny 2!
