Greetings, Guardians, and Happy Spooktober! This week, Xur is hanging out at the EDZ, at the Winding Cove. Read on to see the terrifying Exotics he’s brought for this weekend.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Cerberus +1 is an Exotic Auto Rifle that, thanks to having four barrels, is very good at putting a lot of lead downrange. The Four-Headed Dog intrinsic perk more or less explains how the gun fires; erratically, using all four available barrels. At close to mid range, you are a wall of bullets, a force to be reckoned with. Try it out, and bask in its excellent junkyard aesthetic.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
For Warlock fans of legendary Guardians (and once upon a time, comically ranged shotguns), Felwinter’s Helm is in stock this week. The Helm has the Warlord’s End Exotic Perk, making elemental melee kills cause a weakening effect in an area around you. It’s a neat idea that sounds handy in giant mobs. Give it a shot.
I have a personal vendetta against these pants. They’re the worst, and small gains to Hand Cannons do not make this worth having at all. The Pants are the archetypal bad Hunter Exotic: stay far away.
Heart of Inmost Light
For the Titan lacking that extra glow, Xur offers the Heart of Inmost Light. The Exotic Chest piece’s Overflowing Light empowers your other class abilities when you use one. For example, Shoulder Charging would empower your Grenade, and vice versa. It’s an oddity, but with practice, it’s a solid pickup.
Xur also carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random Exotic piece for 97 Legendary Shards, the Five of Swords for Nightfalls, and The Invitation of the Nine for 9 Legendary Shards, if you haven’t completed that quest yet.
Pants aside, Xur’s collection this week is full of fun, if not OP, items. Cerberus +1 is fun to shoot, and Heart of Inmost Light seems like it has some potential. Get out there and spook your enemies, Guardians. See you next week!
