Exotic

Exotic Auto Rifles appear more in the Beta than they do in-game. They have an extremely low drop rate, making them coveted by most players. Players can also choose an Exotic Weapon upon completing a particular portion of the game. However, some weapons such as the Cold Heart are only available after pre-ordering it.

Legendary

Legendary Auto Rifles do drop in-game. Similarly to the Exotic, they have a low drop rate. However, they do not need a certain condition to be met unless it’s a quest item. Should the player be unable to procure an exotic auto rifle, a legendary auto rifle can serve as a good substitute.

Rare

The rares are one of the easiest to get. They’re quite a good find especially while you’re midway through a mission and you’re looking for a weapon to swap out of. These weapons drop a little more often than the Legendary and often appear in Decoherent Engrams,. If players find themselves on an uncommon weapon or common weapon then, they should immediately switch it to a rare if they can. This is probably one of the best compromises since it has a higher drop rate.

Uncommon

The Uncommon Weapons are also easy to find. If you have a Common Weapon and you find an Uncommon then, best you replace it. In the long run, the Uncommon will definitely deal more damage. However, you’ll find yourself at a wit’s end if you’re fighting a boss like Irausk or Thumos. With both of them being increasingly chunky, you’re going to need a better weapon.
