The Liberty Exotic Pistol might not sound like much when you consider the other weapons available in The Division 2, but don’t let this weapon’s equipment slot fool you. While it might be a sidearm, this high-powered D50 is one that players will want to add to their arsenal. Getting your hands on this weapon won’t be easy.

Like some of the other exotic weapons in The Division 2, getting the Liberty Exotic Pistol is going to take a bit of time, patience, and grinding. While you can unlock this weapon as early as World Tier 1, we’d suggest waiting until one of you raise your World Tier a bit before you acquire it.

The first step to getting this weapon can be completed at anytime throughout your playthrough of The Division 2, though. All you need to do is acquire yourself any level D50 and then throw it in your stash. You’re going to need it later on, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t accidentally deconstruct it or sell it off.

You'll need to hold onto any regular D50 pistol if you want to unlock the Liberty Exotic Pistol.

Next, you’re going to want to make sure you have the Pistol: Trigger & Mechanism component. This will drop automatically at the end of the Capitol Building Stronghold, after you kill Kendra Nelson, so you should already have it if you’ve at least unlocked World Tier 1. To find the other parts, though, you’re going to need to complete a few missions on Hard Difficulty.

Finally, you can pick up the last piece of the Liberty Exotic Pistol by heading over to the Space Administration HQ mission in the Southwest region.

Now that you have all the pieces, visit the Crafting Station at the Whitehouse. Make sure you grab the D50 from your Stash (or you Inventory if you kept it on you) and you should be able to craft the Liberty Exotic Pistol without any issues.
