So, to see all of the Forspoken best gear including cloaks, nails, and necklaces, make sure to carry on reading below.

What Is The Best Gear In Forspoken?

As mentioned, the gear in Forspoken doesn't do any damage to your foes, nor does it have any form of 'armour' that can protect you better. Instead, each piece of gear gives you various stat boosts and conditional assists that can really boost your strength and help you close out tough fights.

While some of the gear in this guide is good in all situations, some pieces do tend to work better when used against specific types of enemies. Gear that gives you boosts after getting a kill is functionally redundant against bosses for example, so it is sometimes best to tweak your set based on your current fight.
