Dauntless Exotic Items List And How To Unlock Them
As of latest Dauntless patch 0.8 there was an introduction of new Exotic items (they are really rare and hard to acquire) which have unique effects that are useful for various builds. Currently there are a total of 6 different Exotics available in Dauntless, 3 Exotic Weapons and 3 Exotic Helmets, with more in development for later patches.
All Exotic Items have unique looks compared to other weapons and gear pieces. Their appearance is based on the Behemoth that they originate from. Unlike other weapons and armor, they don't give any Perks, instead, they provide your character with unique effects.

How To Unlock Exotic Items?
Exotics are split into pairs of Exotic Weapon and an Exotic Helmet. In order to craft them you need to obtain an exotic item blueprint which you can get by unlocking a quest that will require specific materials from the Behemoth's exotic items. Additionally, you'll also need to acquire rare materials from other Behemoths (beware, some of these only drop under specific conditions). There are two ways of doing so: killing the Behemoth associated with the Exotic item or doing Heroic Patrol and Heroic + Patrol. Heroic Patrols have a small chance of dropping the Exotic item blueprint which will appear as a yellow orb upon completion.
