The developer offered details about the new exotic gear. The new exotic weapons are listed below:
No Time To Explain (Pulse Rifle) – Precision hits and hits against enemies affected by Stasis will return to the magazine. Stack this effect to summon a portal which will fire bullets from an alternate timeline of the weapon. The weapon will be available with Beyond Light + Season Pass, Digital Deluxe edition, and Collector’s edition during Season 12. All players with Beyond Light can get it after Season 12.
Cloudstrike (Sniper Rifle) – Precision final blows will generate lightning bolts at the target location. Rapid precision shots will summon an entire storm at the point of impact.
The Lament (Sword) – Block with The Lament to rev the blade, then shred through shielded enemies. At its peak, damaging an enemy will heal the wielder.
Salvation’s Grip (Grenade Launcher) – Each fired projectile will create Stasis crystals that will freeze nearby targets. Charge to increase the amount of crystals created and the freeze radius.
New exotic armour pieces are:
Icefall Mantle (Titan Gauntlets) – This reinforced armour replaces the Titan’s Barricade with Overshield, absorbing damage from incoming fire.
Precious Scars (Titan Helmet) – Upon revives, the Titan gains an Overshield aura that protects the wearer and nearby allies.
Mask of Bakris (Hunter Helmet) – Don the Mask to replace the Hunter’s Dodge ability with a longer range Shift ability that also temporarily cloaks the wearer during use.
Arthrys’ Embrace (Hunter Gauntlets) – The Hunter’s weighted knife gains a second ricochet; rapid precision hits gain a damage bonus and can temporarily stagger enemies.
Dawn Chorus (Warlock Helmet) – The Warlock’s Daybreak projectiles deal extra damage and cause enemies to burn on contact. Gain melee energy each time a burn damages a target.
Necrotic Grip (Warlock Gauntlets) – Melee attacks corrupt enemies with increasing damage over time. Defeating a corrupted combatant spreads the corruption to nearby targets and restores melee energy.
The new season is expected to bring even more exotic as well as legendary gear.
