The Division 2 now has a new feature that allows players to upgrade their exotics. All low-level exotics can now be upgraded in The Division 2 and this guide will explain how you can do that.
How to Upgrade Exotic Weapons
With the new title update, developers have introduced the ability to reconfigure exotics. You can now level up your low-level base game exotics and bring them up to speed with Warlords of Newyork changes. This helps create a continuous purpose for the exotic components.
What Happens When You Upgrade Exotics in The Division 2
When you upgrade your selected exotic it is brought up to the level of your crafting bench, up to level 40. Moreover, the attributes of your exotics you reconfigure are going to get new stat values that are more appropriate for a higher-level weapon. According to Ubisoft, the power of the reconfigured exotic in The Division 2 will be a guaranteed minimum and can go all the way up to a god-rolled item.
If you re-roll an exotic weapon that is already at your level, the weapon will get new status and attributes. It is not recommended that you reconfigure an already high-level weapon. All attributes and overall power of the weapon will be re-rerolled. It is random so you can get anything between a god-roll and the weakest roll in the game, but it’s guaranteed above the minimum.
Getting the Blueprints
All the exotics you have in The Division 2 and all the ones that will drop later are going to get upgrades through reconfigured blueprints. Each exotic will get its own upgraded reconfigured blueprint which can be bought from the crafting Vendor, Inaya. Upgrade blueprints you already owned before the release of Title Update 9 will be converted into reconfigured blueprints. You can go to the crafting bench and use the reconfigured blueprint to upgrade and re-roll your low-level The Division 2 exotics. To upgrade an exotic weapon in The Division 2 you need 1 exotic component and some generic crafting materials for that particular Exotic.
