As you progress through Marvel’s Avengers, you’ll eventually hit the current endgame. When that happens, it might feel like strength gains have slowed to a crawl. Remedy this by farming for better gear, such as the red-hued “exotic gear.” You’ll unlock this tier of equipment after you’ve reached a certain point in the game, and it truly change everything
Here’s everything to know about exotic gear.
What is exotic gear?
Exotic gear is the highest tier of gear, above even legendary. The term was first put into popular use by the game Destiny. In Destiny, exotics are highlighted in a light-yellow color that stands out amongst the grey, green, blue, and purple gear. Often, each exotic has its own backstory and unique stats that couldn’t be found anywhere else in the game. This also meant that you couldn’t find an equivalent to an exotic on a lower rarity tier. Destiny told you they were something special and meant it.
That is not the case in Marvel’s Avengers, where exotics are just the highest tier of gear. Exotic equipment will always be some of the best, but they’re not really that special. Some players have even reported finding legendary gear with the same name and stats as exotic gear.
