In Destiny Year 2, some weapons are more special than others. Certain Exotics will receive an upgrade to become suitable for combat at level 40+ combat. Now we know not only that those Exotics might not be the ones we think they are (as we found out after the Gjallarhorn incident), but that this group is just a little bit exclusive.
According to Bungie.net's Armory listings at the moment, there will be a grand total of ten existing Exotics given the Year 2 treatment - you can see them all in the gallery above. More may be added later (although this is resolutely unconfirmed), but such a modest initial list suggests that a whole lot of standouts will be forgotten in the near future. If you already own any convertible weapons, you'll be able to turn them into their Year 2 form on the Exotic Weapons Blueprints screen once you hit level 40.
As for what to do with the rest? Well, we'll leave that to you.
