Destiny 2 Blight Ranger is an exotic helmet for the Hunter class. Destiny 2 regularly adds new exotic armours to the game with each new season. One of the more recent additions is the Blight Ranger, a helmet for the Arcstrider subclass. Here is everything you need to know about the Destiny 2 Blight Ranger.

Destiny 2 Blight Ranger: How To Get It

Destiny 2 Blight Ranger: How to get it

As with all new exotic armour, your only source to get the Blight Ranger is only available through completing Destiny 2 Lost Sectors. Specifically, completing Lost Sectors on either Legend or Master difficulty. Every day there is a new Lost Sector designated as the Legend/Master Lost Sector. Completing these Lost Sectors on either difficulty has a chance to grant a powerful new exotic armour.

Now, there are more things to consider when attempting this. First and foremost, you need to check which armour type is available on a given day. Only one armour type, be it helmets, chest pieces, etc., are granted each day. If you check the Lost Sector on the map, you will see which is available. For this helmet, you will need to pick a day when exotic helmets are in the Lost Sector loot pool.

Of the two difficulties, Master is the more difficult and has the greater chance of an exotic drop. However, the difference between Master and Legend’s drop rates is negligible, and doesn’t make up for the spike in difficulty. Generally speaking, the most optimal strategy is to run the Legend difficulty instead.

Destiny 2 Blight Ranger: What Does It Do

Destiny 2 Blight Ranger: What does it do

The Blight Ranger helmet is for Arcstrider Hunters, specifically for the middle tree of the subclass. What Blight Ranger does is it increases the damage done by reflected shots by 600%, which also increases your own damage and generates orbs of power. So in practice, this exotic boost the effectiveness of Whirlwind Guard.

While guarding, any shots you deflect will now do six times the usual damage when returned to sender. After deflecting a shot, your own damage increases. Block a shot, and attack with your super to do much more damage. Also, blocking shots creates large orbs of power for your teammates. This exotic does a broad range of things, but unfortunately they are not the most useful.

 

In PvE, the returning damage done by this exotic is not much to write home about. The damage increase given by deflecting shots isn’t much better, so you are not about to start melting bosses because of this exotic. The orbs it creates are arguably more beneficial, particularly in a raid setting.

While it certainly isn’t reliable, the Blight Ranger is much more effective in PvP. Returning damage multiplied by six to other players is a much more interesting prospect, as in almost all cases this is likely to kill an opponent in one hit. This of course, relies on your enemies actually shooting you while you are guarding. If they are wise to your antics they are unlikely to shoot, but the times that enemies do fire and drop-dead immediately are pretty entertaining.

That is everything you need to know about the Destiny 2 Blight Ranger. For more on the game, check out our Destiny weekly reset guide.
