In Destiny 2, there's nothing like seeing a yellow exotic engram after blasting a huge alien enemy. However, this excitement is often interrupted immediately because there is no guarantee that the exotic weapon or armor that comes from this engram is something that players do not already have. Hopefully, these days of annihilating engram disappointment will soon end, thanks to a forthcoming update from Destiny 2.
Bungie's preliminary patch notes for the next update bring with them a number of quality of life enhancements that will lead to Destiny 2. While there are some nice changes coming along with the update, those that are likely to be most important to players will affect the drop rates of duplicate exotics. Bungie changes the way Destiny 2 creates random drops, increasing the chance that players will get an exotic that they do not yet have, and the odds of what duplicates they'll get when and when they do.
First, the update changes how exotics are "weighted" when Destiny 2's RNG determines which exotics fall into an engram. Exotic weapons and armor you do not weigh heavier than exotics. Bungie also eliminates exotics earned by completing quests like Malfeasance and Ace of Spades from the pool of random random strokes, which does not prevent the chances of obtaining something that you already have in your inventory the possibility of double drops, but Bungie also adjusts the drop rates. So if you end up with an Exotic that you already have, that is a bit less annoying. When double drops appear, the odds of getting exotic armor are higher than an exotic weapon. Exotic weapons have benefits, but armor benefits are randomly determined ̵
