All Exotics in Destiny 2 and How to Get Them

All Exotics in Destiny 2 you say? We’ve got you covered. Below you will find a list of ALL Exotic Weapons and ALL Exotic Armor in Destiny 2. Along with their Unique Perks and Abilities. We will also tell you how to obtain all of them (updating as we receive information). Check it out!

Note that many of the Exotics listed below can be obtained via Exotic Engrams. There are multiple different ways to get Exotic Engrams including: Public Event Chests, Crucible, Strikes and Quest Rewards. So be sure to do these activities to increase your chances of obtaining one. In Destiny 2 Exotic Engrams are locked to your level, so there is no point in hording them until you reach cap (20). Howevery, you can “Infuse” Exotics of lower Level and bring them up to Cap so they are not wasted!
