Destiny 2: Putting mods on Exotics
You can acquire different types of gear, weapons, and accessories as you advance in the game. As you reach mid, or endgame content, you will find an Exotic type of gear. These weapons and this armour usually have unique properties. However, you should keep in mind that you can only have one Exotic weapon and one Exotic armour piece on your character.
The game’s developer, Bungie Inc, recently revealed that Exotic weapons would never get a modification slot. This means that players will never be able to put modifications on their Exotic weapons.
Allegedly, modding Exotic weapons could introduce game-breaking glitches to Destiny 2. Bungie Inc also stated, as an example of this, that if Icarus Grip was attached to Ace of Spades, it would increase the hand cannon’s midair accuracy significantly. Furthermore, the developer said that placing Backup Mag on Hawkmoon could potentially destroy its damage-stacking Exotic perk.
Exotic gear is designed with a specific purpose in mind, and since it comes with a lot more perks that are often more powerful than the ones available on Legendary gear, modifications are off the table.
How to acquire Exotic gear
Exotic gear is usually acquired from Exotic Engrams and Xur, who sell Exotic weapons and armour for a symbolic price. It is noteworthy that Luminous Engrams will occasionally drop Exotic gear, however, their drop rate is extremely low.
Some Exotic gear and weapons can be obtained by completing quests and challenges, but players should bear in mind that these Exotics cannot be purchased from Xur or be found in Engrams.
You can obtain cosmetic Exotic items from Bright Engrams, or it can be purchased from Eververse. Using the Gleaming Boon of the Crucible and the Gleaming Boon of the Vanguard from Eververse may also offer cosmetic Exotic items.
How to procure modifications
Players should remember that modifications are extremely rare, but you can sometimes find some in chests or crates. Generally, you will receive a modification as a reward for completing specific tasks. The easiest way to acquire modifications is by improving the reputation of the Gunsmith.
Moreover, you should always open the engrams you receive from him, as they almost always contain at least 1 modification or improvement. To improve your relationship with him, you need to provide him with weapon materials, which you can get by dismantling the blue-class equipment.
Are modifications free?
As mentioned above, you can get modifications by improving your reputation and relationship with the Gunsmith, at the cost of dismantling blue-class equipment. This means that even if you do not purchase the modification with in-game currency, in a way you are paying for it by sacrificing equipment.
