An Insurmountable Skullfort

This helm will get you “Improved Transfusion” in addition to melee energy on spawn, plus grant every Titan subclass an additional melee charge. It may seem like this helmet was designed for Daft Punk Strikers, but it’s actually Defenders and Sunbreakers that see the most use of this perk.

Any content in which a melee kill or melting point proc is feasible is fair game for the Skullfort. Consider the usefulness of a panic overshield for when your first goes down, or a doubly lengthy debuff if your team’s DPS falls off. No, you won’t want to bring it into Lightswitch Nightfalls – but the myriad uses of the now-somewhat-extended Titan melee warrant its spot in your roster. Of course, if you aren’t committed to melee, then it’s basically just an Exotic paperweight.

High B tier for PvE. In PvP, no knocks against it for the extra melee charge/free melee energy on spawn – but Armamentarium provides a similar service, with a much more potent neutral tool in grenades.

ATS/8 ARACHNID

Apotheosis Veil

Chuck a grenade, smack an acolyte, pop your super for full health and rinse and repeat.

It’s not going to fix your game or revolutionize the way you approach PvE, but if you have no desire to run a better or more specialized Exotic, you could do worse overall. A mid B tier in PvE. PvP it’s worth a look, with a rather weak field for Warlocks overall.
