The Division 2 Pestilence and Nemesis

With World Tier 5 finally available for all players in the 1.05 update, the Pestilence LMG and Nemesis sniper are the latest additions to the varied arsenal of The Division 2. The Exotic Pestilence LMG looks on the surface to be modeled on the M249 LMG, designed to deal heavy, consistent damage at the cost of maneuverability. The Exotic Nemesis sniper is reportedly sourced from the Black Tusk faction, and is equipped with an impressive array of modifications, with a long-range scope, laser sights, a suppressor, and what looks like some sort of assistive targeting modification above the scope.

Like all Exotic weapons, The Division 2 Pestilence and Nemesis will be equipped with unique talents that put them ahead of other weapon categories, designed to have a great impact on how you play the game. These Exotics will also have an upgrade system, so that you can continue to use these weapons through the endgame. However, bear in mind that you can only equip one Exotic weapon and one Exotic Gear Piece at a time, as a limit on the destructive power of these weapons. The Division 2 Pestilence and Nemesis will be some of the first Exotic weapons to release, although an Exotic rifle and pistol have also been reported in the game.
