Destiny 2 Beyond Light: All The Exotics & Legendary Weapons & Armor So Far

This article will be updated periodically as Destiny 2 Beyond Light is recently out. 

Destiny 2 Beyond Light is now live for all you looter shooter fans out there. It marks the first time Bungie has released a new expansion for its long-running online shooter without publisher Activision looking over their shoulder. It’s a bold new world for Bungie, essentially.

Most importantly, there’s a lot of new Exotic and Legendary weapons and armour to find while you’re taking on public events, strikes, and lost sectors in the icy yet beautiful vistas of Europa and beyond. Here’s what we found so far.
