Greeting, Guardians! Hope you’re doing well. This week, Xur is hiding out at the Winding Cove on EDZ. Read on to see what he’s got.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Sweet Business is an Exotic Kinetic Auto Rifle, which is a boring way to describe an incredibly fun minigun. Sweet Business offers two Exotic Perks to help you lay down a terrifying amount of fire. The first, Payday, gives the gun a 150-round mag, better accuracy from the hip, and the ability to reload by picking up ammo packs. The second, Business Time, raises rate of fire and range the longer you hold the trigger down. Are there better weapons? Sure. But, like Telesto, Sweet Business is just fun to use. If mowing the Darkness (or unwary opponents in Crucible) down with a minigun sounds fun to you, go see Xur and throw Legendary Shards at him until he hands you Sweet Business.
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.
A throwback Exotic, Lucky Raspberry is a Hunter Chest piece that gives your Arc grenades a bit more of everything. The Probability Matrix Exotic Perk makes your Arcbolt Grenades chain further and gives them a chance to reset on damage. Like any Hunter Exotic I have to do research on, I can’t recommend it. Despite the plethora of horrid Hunter Exotics, there are much better things you could be doing than using Lucky Raspberry.
ACD/0 Feedback Fence
The ACD/0 Feedback Fence is a set of Exotic Titan arms that angrily shock your enemy when they have the audacity to Melee you. The Fence’s Wrath Conductors charge when you Melee people, building stacks that hit the unlucky person who fistfights you back. They’re solid against swarms of foes in PvE, and you might be able to catch someone off guard in the Crucible with it.
Xur also carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random piece of Exotic armor 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.
Xur didn’t bring anything too exciting in the Armor category, but he did bring Sweet Business, which is both cool and fun to use. Grab it if you want some sweet novelty in your game.
For those in the US, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. See you all next week!
