Greetings, Guardians! Hope you’re doing well. Xur is at the EDZ this week; read on to see what he has.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Xur’s weapon this week is the Exotic Grenade Launcher, Fighting Lion. It’s a strange one, but if you take some time to learn its intricacies, you may well be rewarded for your efforts. The Lion’s Exotic perk, Delayed Gratification, allows you to bounce shots off of surfaces, only exploding when you release the trigger. Pair that with Thin the Herd, which rewards direct hits with extra shield damage and Primary Ammo on kill, and you’ve got a fun, if niche, weapon.

Graviton Forfeit is an Exotic Hunter Helmet that helps you sneak up on foes. Vanishing Shadow, its Exotic Perk, raises the duration of effects that make you invisible, and recharges your Melee ability quicker while you’re harder to see. If that sounds like your jam, pick it up.
They’re mean, they’re green, and they may have a mind of their own. The Synthoceps are a set of Titan arms whose Biotic Enhancements make a Titan’s favorite activities — punching things and firing Supers — even better.

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:
