Destiny 2 Exotic Class Items, Explained

Break the game on purpose.

Destiny 2 gameplay has been stagnant for a while; however, it is apparent that the game has ambitious plans for the future with The Final Shape. Below, I will explain what exotic class items are and how they are used.

What are the Exotic Class Items and the Prismatic subclass in Destiny 2?

During the Final Shape Developer Gameplay Preview, the developers of Destiny 2 revealed a brand new subclass that combines the powers of Light and Darkness as Guardians pursue the Witness into the Pale Heart of the Traveler. The Prismatic subclass will combine multiple elements to create an advanced subclass with increased customization options, additional fragments, and fragment slots.

Players will also be able to obtain an exotic class item to complement it. The exotic class item will randomly roll two exotic perks from other existing exotics, even those not originally intended for your character's class. So, Hunter's cloaks, Titan's marks, and Warlock's bonds will all have randomized exotic-level perks borrowed from each other, enhancing customizability to a new level. Titans will be able to use Hunter perks and Warlocks will steal from Hunters—the possibilities are endless.

This may make you excited or worried, as the combinations could potentially disrupt your entire gaming experience. This is what Bungie wants, though—they want the game to feel broken. If you recall, we've had plenty of broken updates and patches over the last year, such as the weapon glitch we experienced. It just made the game way more fun for everyone, so it's safe to say they've taken some inspiration.
