There are tons of different exotic armor pieces among the three classes of Destiny 2. For the Hunter specifically, there are seven exotic helmets, 10 gauntlets, eight chest pieces, and eight pieces of leg armor. Each of these has its own beautiful aesthetic and armor perk to offer players.
All Exotic Hunter Helmets
Vanishing Execution – Powered melee final blows grant invisibility and restore a portion of health and shields. Finishers and final blows against more powerful targets increase the duration of the invisibility and the amount of health and shields restored.
Hawkeye Hack – Modifies Golden Gun to fire a single high-damage shot. Enemies eliminated by this shot explode and grant the player Super energy.
Relentless Tracker – Visually mark targeted enemies. Deals more damage to low-health marked enemies.
Vanishing Shadow – Increases the duration of any invisibility effects. While the player is invisible, their melee recharges faster, their weapon reload is faster, and their Recovery is greatly increased.
Upgraded Sensor Pack – Provides radar while the player is aiming. Enhances the player’s radar resolution while crouched.
Mask of Bakris
Light Shift – Replaces the player’s Stasis subclass dodge ability with a longer range, fasting moving shift that partially cloaks them during use. After shifting, their Arc weapons deal increased damage to combatants for a short time, and they deal extra damage to all slowed or frozen combatants.
Burning Souls – Dodging gives a small health and shield bump.

The Aeon exotics give players three choices for their perk:
The Sect of Force – Rapid precision hits with a weapon temporarily increase the player’s reload speed and weapon swap speed. When the player stuns a Champion or defeats a boss/mini-boss, their fireteam members gain a burst of grenade and melee energy. Aeon cult allies who do not have the burst of Super energy.
The Sect of Insight – Successive precision weapon takedowns have a chance to drop an Orb of Power for the player’s allies. When they use a finisher on an Elite, they generate Special ammo for their fireteam; when they use a finisher on a boss or mini-boss, they generate heavy ammo for their fireteam. Nearby Aeon cult allies who do not have the Sect of Insight role equipped also gain a bonus to weapon damage for a short time.
The Sect of Vigor – Gain class ability energy as the player’s allies die. Gain full class ability energy when the player resurrects an ally. When casting a Super, nearby allies gain an instant burst of healing. Aeon cult allies who do not have the Sect of Vigor equipped also gain an overshield.
Skittering Stinger – Weighted Knife gains a second bounce. Rapid precision hits with the player’s weapon grant the Weighted Knife a significant damage bonus and the ability to stun unshielded combatants for a short time.
Touch of Venom – Punching someone with full melee energy will instantly cast Smoke Bombs. Gain Truesight while the player’s own Smoke Bomb effect. The player’s smoke bombs deal increased damage.
Cross Counter – Using the player’s Arc ability or being hit by a melee attack will allow the player to follow up with an extremely powerful melee counterpunch that will heal the player.
