In this game we have all kinds of wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful gear from helmets to boots and sparrows with the durability of tissue paper when hit with a rocket. There's really a whole ton of stuff and we should all be proud of such a versatile sandbox.
But let's talk about exotic gear. We love the idea of exotic gear, no? This stuff is going to be well worth getting, so much so that we'll all be racing to get it.
But if everyone has exotic gear, it's not precisely exotic anymore, is it?
Which is why it would be best if there was only one of each exotic item available across the entire playerbase. It'd make it rare and worth the reward. You can also loot the exotics from people's vaults and inventories if you sneak up on them while they access the vault, capitalizing on their lack of awareness in a pickpocketing game.
Should exotic items be truly exotic and hard to find?
