Greetings, Guardians! How’s the new content treating you? Xur’s hanging out at the EDZ this week. Read on to check out his goods.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Sunshot is an Exotic Hand Cannon, and, much like the Sun itself, a deadly laser. Sunshot’s Exotic Sunburn Perk makes rounds explosive, while also highlighting targets hit by Sunshot. Honestly, I think the gun is a bit underrated, but there’s every chance you already got a Sunshot in the Red War campaign, which makes buying one seem kind of unnecessary. Pick it up and give it a try if you missed it, though.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Skull of Dire Ahamkara
The Skull of Dire Ahamkara is a Warlock Helmet with the Actual Grandeur Exotic Perk, which ups your damage resistance while Nova Bombing and grants immediate Super energy on kill, so you can do it again more quickly. It’s not a bad helmet, but Warlocks have a lot of Exotic armor to choose from, and the Skull isn’t the absolute best. That said, it’s pretty good, and situationally great, so give it a shot, oh bearer mine.
Lucky Pants come with an Illegally Modded Holster that load a round into stowed Hand Cannons when you land a precision hit, and let you deal to your stowed Hand Cannon faster. I feel like there are much better things you could be doing than running Lucky Pants.
Doom Fang Pauldron
The Doom Fang Pauldron, or Bio-Conductive Trouble Breakers if you read the lore and are feeling nasty, is a cool purple pauldron for your cool purple Titan. The Pauldron’s Horns of Doom perk lets your Shield Bash kills recharge your Shield Throw. Shield Throw kills also extend Super duration, so you can give as many people as possible the Captain America treatment. If that’s how you like to play Titan, the Pauldron is a must have.
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:
