Destiny 2 Cyrtarachne’s Facade is one of the powerful new exotic armours added with the Lightfall expansion. Destiny 2 character builds are never complete without an exotic to tie them all together. Cyrtarachne’s Facade is a Hunter exotic that grants even more power and utility for the new Strand subclass. Here is everything you need to know about Destiny 2 Cyrtarachne’s Facade.

As mentioned, Cyrtarachne’s Facade is a Hunter exotic helmet. The armour is for the new Strand subclass and gives Threadrunner Hunters a more powerful grapple ability.

When a Hunter wearing Cyrtarachne’s Facade uses their grapple, they get Woven Mail. Woven Mail is a new Strand ability that grants a layer of armour. This armour grants damage reduction, while also reducing the effects of flinching when taking damage.

Something worth noting is that Woven Mail works differently in PvP. If you gain Woven Mail from an exotic armour like Cyrtarachne’s Facade in the Crucible, it does not cover your head. So in those cases, try not to get shot in your face.

As it was with Witch Queen, so it is with Lightfall. There are three new exotic armour pieces, one for each of the classes. In order to get your hands on them, you are going to need to complete the Lightfall campaign on Legendary difficulty with the relevant class.

For Cyrtarachne's Facade, you will need to complete the Lightfall campaign on Legendary with your Hunter. You do not need to do it solo, or all in one go, nothing like that. Simply get the campaign completed on Legendary difficulty however it suits you and the exotic will be yours.
