Destiny 2 Legacy Exotics Guide

Destiny 2 Legacy Exotics Guide

In the Destiny 2 Legacy Exotics Guide, we explain how and where to obtain those powerful weapons. Exotic weapons are the rare and most desired guns in the game by players. It’s extremely important to start collecting them as fast as possible, thus this guide is for all players beginner and advanced.

Legacy Exotics

The term Legacy Exotics basically means retired exotics that you can no longer collect via an in-game activity. Exotics are one the most powerful and unique one-pieces in the game. You can use one exotic weapon and one exotic armor piece at a time, prioritizing the right one in combination with mods is how you create a strong build. There are currently a couple of methods for obtaining these old exotics. One is the tower near your vault at the Exotic Archive. This method costs a hefty amount of glimmer and materials but you can get the past years’ exotic weapons and not miss out.

Another method is random via Xur, the vendor that appears on the weekend somewhere throughout the Destiny 2 universe. Once per week, you can purchase an exotic engram from Xur which will give you a never before claimed exotic which could include missing armor exotics.
