Greetings, Guardians, and a belated Happy American Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrated. The 30th Anniversary patch is coming soon; are you ready for it? Better yet, are you ready for Xur? Because he’s at the Tower, and he’s brought some Exotic goodies. Read on to know them.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
The Huckleberry is an Exotic Submachine Gun that trades control for power, thanks to Ride the Bull, its Exotic perk. Ride the Bull gives you more power the longer you hold the trigger down, at the cost of far less accuracy. It also gives you a partial ammo refund on kill. Pick it up and try it out; with its Catalyst, it ends up being a pretty great option.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
A throwback Exotic from Destiny 1, the Apotheosis Veil is a strictly meh Warlock Helmet. It’s Insatiable perk regenerates your health and abilities when you use your Super. It’s fine, but Warlocks aren’t exactly hurting for good Exotic armor, so I can’t recommend it.
Do you like Arcstriding people so much that you never want to stop? Well, that’s impossible, but the Raiden Flux can help you smack a few more enemies around per Super. The Synapse Junction Exotic perk turns every staff hit into more Super energy and more damage per hit. Bonk them with lightning and be rewarded with more lightning with which to bonk them. The Flux is a good pickup; grab it if you’re missing it.
An Insurmountable Skullfort
An Insurmountable Skullfort is an Exotic Titan Helmet that turns your opponents’ shocking demise into profit. The Skullfort’s Transfusion Matrix gives you Melee energy and triggers your health regeneration on an Arc Melee kill. It’s a fun choice for Strikers getting up close and personal.
Xur also carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random piece of Exotic armor for 97 Legendary Shards, along with the Exotic Quest “The Question.”
The Witch Queen DLC added Legendary weapons and armor to Xur’s weekly drops, at 50 Legendary Shards and 1000 Glimmer per item. They are:
- Dire Promise (Hand Cannon)
- Enigma’s Draw (Sidearm)
- False Promises (Auto Rifle)
- IKELOS_SR_v1.0.2 (Energy Sniper Rifle)
- First In, Last Out (Energy Shotgun)
- Honor’s Edge (Sword)
- The Keening (Energy Sidearm)
- Swordflight Set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
