Exotics have come a long way since the original Division game. They were rebalanced with The Division 2, and more were brought into the game. With the release of Warlords of New York Title Update, the exotics were revamped and retouched to make them more accessible for casual players. Thanks to the new Gear 2.0 system, they can also be customized to fit in with virtually any playstyle.

Division 2: Warlords of New York Exotics List

Warlords of New York increases the base level cap from 30 to 40. As you can imagine, your level 30 exotics will no longer be viable at the new level cap. There are ways you can get them again, though.
