In Destiny 2, you’re only as good as your loadout—and your loadout is best when equipped with Exotics.
The highest rarity in the game, Exotics are noted by their yellow background. They’re hard to find and even harder to get to drop randomly in the game. But every weekend, Xur, Agent of the Nine sells a selection of armors and a weapon to pick up. Make sure to visit him to expand your collection.
You can also pick up old Exotics from the Exotic Archive, Monument to Lost Lights, in the Tower. It can be found right next to players’ vaults in the Tower courtyard and it’s filled with old weapons.
But today, we’re here for armors. These are the best Exotic armors that you should be excited about if they drop and the ones you should purchase immediately from Xur if he’s selling them.
Also, make sure to keep an eye on Legend and Master Lost Sectors, because those have a high chance to drop any armor that you are missing in a specific slot.
