A guide to all of the weapons, Exotics, and armour – and how to get them – in the Destiny 2 beta.

The Destiny 2 beta kicked off last night for early access PS4 pre-orders, with Xbox One pre-order early access tonight, before it opens up to everyone this weekend.

You can check exactly when the beta is live in your region right here.

For all you loot lovers out there, there’s a small sample to play around with in the beta, with over 20 weapons (including three exotics), and three armour sets per class.

If you want to browse the inventory before you join the fray this weekend, or are deciding your class based on the Exotic, you can check out our list of all of the weapons, Exotics, and armour included in the Destiny 2 beta below.

Destiny 2 beta: Exotic weapons and how to get them

There are three Exotic weapons to be found in the Destiny 2 beta, and they’re specific to each class.
