The Division 2 features a wide selection of guns, and an overhaul of the loot drop and rarity system from the first game. The very best weapons in The Division 2 are the exotics, awesome looking variants of standard weapons, with added stat boosts. Problem is, they’re very tricky to find, and not all of them have been discovered yet. Luckily, a few have, and we know each one’s stats, and appearance. To help you keep track of all of the Exotic Weapons in The Division 2, we’ve put together this The Division 2 Exotic Weapons Guide. We’ll list all of the Exotic Weapons that we know about so far, and take a look at how to get them.

The Division 2 Exotic Weapons
Exotic Weapons start to come into play towards the later levels of The Division 2. Each has a unique design, often themed after one of the game’s many factions. They also have bespoke perks, which is what makes them so essential for the endgame trials. Seeing as The Division 2 has only been out for a little while, players are still unearthing new Exotic weapons. As such, we’ll be constantly updating this page as more are discovered.
How to Get Exotic Weapons in The Division 2
In The Division 2, you’ll constantly earn loot, either through caches or random enemy drops. These drops are related to your level, so you’ll only start to see Exotic weapons towards the later levels. So far, we’ve seen Exotics drop as early as level 22. You’ll need to keep grinding high-level activities like Strongholds and Dark Zone in order to up your chances.
The Division 2 Lullaby Exotic
The first The Division 2 Exotic Weapon that has been found is the Lullaby Exotic SPAS-12. It’s an absolute beast, with 2.1k in damage, 70RPM, and a 5.4 second reload. It also comes with the Lullaby Perk. This perk gives you an armor boost of 35% when you hit an enemy with melee after swapping to the shotgun. There’s also the Evasive perk, which reloads one shell after a dodge. To get the Lullaby, you’ll need to have picked up The Capitol Defender Pack. You’ll also get it if you preordered The Division 2.
The Division 2 Ruthless Exotic
Next on the list is the Ruthless Exotic assault rifle. It is a great primary weapon, boasting 300 damage, as well as 260RPM. The thing that makes the Ruthless rifle so special is the Binary Trigger perk, which means you’ll fire twice per shot, once when you pull the trigger, and again when you release it. This essentially turns it into a 2-burst rifle. There’s also the Brutality perk, which has a 5% chance to deal 20% Explosive damage.
The Division 2 Liberty D50 Pistol
There's a desert eagle exotic to grab in The Division 2. It's a tricky gun to put together though, as you'll have to follow the following steps to craft it:
- Complete the Capitol Hill Stronghold to obtain parts from the boss
- Then play American History Museum, Viewpoint Museum, and Space Administration HQ on Hard.
- This will give you all of the parts that you'll need to proceed, so it's juat a case of combining them with a D50 high-end pistol.
The Division 2 Chatterbox Exotic
Next up is the Chatterbox Exotic P90 SMG. You'll need to get the requisite parts to craft it by finding Hyena Chests in Judiciary Square, Downtown East, Downtown West and the Federal Triangle. Then you'll need to craft it using the Chatterbox Blueprint obtained from playing Bank Headquarters on Hard difficulty.
The Division 2 Merciless Exotic
The Merciless exotic is one of the randomized drops that you can get in The Division 2. In short, you'll just need to keep grinding out hard activities at level 30 or above to stand a chance of getting it. Once you do, you'll get the Guerilla Warfare tactic which fires explosive rounds triggered by the release of each shot. This gains an overall 75% in damage.
The Division 2 Sweet Dreams Exotic
The Sweet Dreams weapon has the Sandman Perk, which allows you to retain a bonus 35% armor when you finish off an enemy with the perk active. It is unfortunately another random drop, though grinding out the Roosevelt stronghold on challenging difficulty will grant you it eventually.
Other The Division 2 Exotic Weapons
While there have been no other confirmed Exotic Weapons (we’ll likely need to wait a little longer for that), there were some hints in the beta as to some more. Thanks to the video below by Epic Slay3rs, you can clearly see a collection of exotic looking weapons housed in the firing range. These weapons are no longer there, but are described as follows:
- Lullaby - SPAS-12
- Ruthless - Elite agent pack
- Black Tusk Sniper
- True Sons Desert Eagle
- Exotic Hyena P90
- Outcast M249
We’ll have to wait and see whether these exotic weapons do indeed pop up in the late game, but given the intricate designs, it’s very likely that they will.
How to Upgrade Exotic Weapons in The Division 2
The great thing about Exotic Weapons in The Division 2 is that they can be upgraded. You won’t be able to do so until you hit the level cap, but once you do you can spend resources and credits to up the weapon’s stats. This will allow you to keep your favorite weapon relevant in the future meta, so make sure you keep hold of any Exotic Weapons.
