Can Raid Exotics have a chance of having the 3rd attribute being a random roll now? Because that would give extra motivation for doing the raids.
15% Weapon Damage
10% Damage to Targets out of cover
This change should only be able to happen on Raid Exotics only as they are harder to acquire than your regular exo's
This would be a welcome small/grindy addition whilst we wait for the new content
Why can't we just keep the exotics as they are? You have to keep in mind that exotics also have talents which tend to fit the 3rd attribute (Eagle Bearer) or very powerful weapon mods that often compensate a "weaker" 3rd attribute.
As for the the second suggestion:
I don't see why an AR not dropping from a raid should not have an "offensive" attribute, but the EB should have one? Some exotics dropping in the LZ need their current 3rd attribute to be on par with other weapons – or the 3rd attribute fits the exotic talent so that no other attribute would make sense. Especially as they also are balanced including exotic weapon mods, so messing around with RNG here does not seem to be a good idea.
And I have to admit that I anyway don't think that raid exclusive weapons need to be more attractive than they currently are.

What? I'm talking about EB, Rav, Regulus.
Not all AR's or other weapons...

It's only for the 3 raid Exotic's not every Exotic in the game.
So that solo players can have them as Exotic wall decoration.
But if they like it and want a stronger one they still have to do Raid's, like everyone else.
Making Raids still the place to be for the real deal.
Instead of Raids being useless the moment those Exotics are not exclusive anymore.

True, but people like to experiment with builds, even if it doenst make sense.

And I was only referring to exotic ARs, the EB being the one dropping from raids only. So why should only the EB have the opportunity to roll an "offensive" 3rd attribute and the Chameleon, the Bighorn, and the Capacitor shouldn't? Especially the Bighorn (without CHD) and the Chameleon (without CHC) would become considerably worse... why should that be needed in terms of balancing?

To be precise, your suggestion was to have all exotic weapons not dropping from one of the raids only have the chance to roll Optimal Range, Swap Speed, Reload Speed, or Magazine Size:
That would be quite a nerf to all of those exotic weapons as currently every exotic weapon has an offensive 3rd attribute (except of the Backfire). And I don't think that this kind of nerf is necessary.
I didn't say all Exotics, but I also didn't say Raid Exotics.
But the OP was talking about Raid Exotics so I thought it was obvious I was talking about them.
What I meant:
- The Open World/DZ/Mission versions of the EB, Rav and Regulus:
Should always come with a defensive 3rd attribute.
So that solo players can at least have them on their precious Exotic wall.
But if they like the weapons and want it stronger, they still have to do the Raids.
- The Raid versions of the EB, Rav and Regulus:
Should always come with a offensive 3rd attribute.
So that Raids are not becoming useless.
Plus it adds something to the grind
- Better/Best attribute
- Multiple attributes for multiple builds

Yep, that wasn't clear before. I thought with "exotics in the LZ" you were referring to the existing exotics in the LZ.
Concerning adding raid exclusive exotics to the general loot pool (in whatever way) – I'd rather not again go down that road. We've had quite a few threads from people, not playing the raids and not willing to do anything for it, asking for this and each and every thread has taken the same direction. And it's off topic here anyway...
