How to Get Vaulted Exotic Gear in Destiny 2: Beyond Light

The quests previously needed to obtain Exotic weapons from Destiny 2‘s earlier expansions were vaulted to make room for Beyond Light. However, the gear itself has been made available for purchase with in-game currency. With the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive, you can still obtain vaulted Exotic gear and Legacy weapons from Destiny 2‘s Years 1-3.

Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive

To purchase this gear, you must visit the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive in The Tower. It’s located in between the two Vault kiosks in the Courtyard.

The Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive divides Destiny 2‘s Year 1-3 gear into two categories. The first is Exotic gear, which offers Guardians the chance to purchase Exotic weapons they missed out on in the Red War, Forsaken, and Shadowkeep expansions. Then there’s Legacy gear, which is comprised of seasonal items no longer attainable from their original Crucible, Gambit, and Vanguard quests.

Each Exotic and Legacy gear item has its own unique price tag. Every Exotic gear item costs 1 Exotic Cipher, 1 Ascendant Shard, between 100,000 and 150,000 Glimmer, and a set quantity of a Destination Material specific to that item. Any Legacy gear item will cost you 75,000 Glimmer, between 100 and 250 Legendary Shards, 1 Ascendant Shard, and 2 Enhancement Prisms.

Worth noting is that each Legacy gear item is capped at 1060 Power, but the Exotics have no Power cap and may be upgraded. If you purchase an Exotic weapon from this Archive, it’ll come at a Power level relative to your Guardian’s.
