Mk. 44 Stand Asides

You can use this in PvP for a little leeway with timing your Shoulder Charge kills – and the tighter turn radius isn’t too bad – but the trade-off for any number of other Exotics you’re missing is hard to justify. If you do choose to run it, make sure to spec Headstrong for the extra sprint speed, which will be an obvious smart pairing with the aforementioned turn radius buff.

In PvE, only don these terrible boots if you desire to wear an unsubtle, obstructive, ridiculous Exotic that has about as much PvE utility as the Husk of the Pit.

…Okay, so you can re-roll them for your desired Ammo perks, at least.

With Headstrong, if you’re a Striker fan who is looking to play around in PvP, they might earn you 1 extra kill a match with a quicker, more responsive, and forgiving Shoulder Charge (and probably 5 extra deaths as you try to lean on SC too hard).

Lucky Raspberry

Spawn with full grenade energy with any grenade ! Plus you’ll get some ammo, armor, and recovery perks.

Your Arcbolt grenades will also be improved by chaining further.

Claws of Ahamkara

These universal Gauntlets are just flat-out good. The Warlock has never been at a loss for a potent melee, between the Voidwalker’s grenade-forward Energy Drain, Sunsinger’s Flame Shield, and now the scary powerful Thunderstrike. Getting a second melee charge that can be conserved for tough moments is extremely useful in PvE – but you will probably be smacking less in general for fear of losing it. These get the A tier in PvE for their sheer versatility. A strong innate perk with zero downsides.
