Destiny 2: How to Get Exotic Weapons and Armor

How to Get Exotic Weapons and Armor in Destiny 2

Exotic weapons and armor are the highest tier of gear that you can obtain in Destiny 2. Like the powerful gear in most games, exotics are quite rare in Destiny 2, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get them.

There are three ways that you can obtain exotic weapons and armor in Destiny 2. The first is sheer luck. Exotic engrams can drop in just about any activity in the game. You can get them while exploring open spaces, from diving into Lost Sectors, completing Adventures, or doing public events. While the chances are low, there is always a chance.


The second way is to simply play through the game’s story. At certain points throughout its duration, you will be given exotic weapons and pieces of armor. Do note that these won’t necessarily be at max power. Instead, they will match or be just above the level that you are at when you claim them. Still, you can always infuse them if you want to.

The final way is to get your hands on exotic weapons and armor is to find and complete an exotic quest. These are unlocked as you explore the game’s worlds and complete certain objectives. Upon completion of the exotic quests, you will be rewarded with the weapon or armor that’s tied to it.

That’s all there really is to getting your hands on exotic weapons and armor in Destiny 2 so far. Good luck and safe travels, Guardian.
