Greetings, Guardians. How’s the new season treating you? If you need some help through the introductory sections, Nico has got you covered. If you’re wanting to know about Xur’s wares instead, that’s where I come in. This week, Xur is at the Tower, with some neat new additions. Read on to see what’s in stock.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
You know those plastic bazookas that shoot air bubbles at people? The Tractor Cannon is like that, but made of science and joy. Technically an Exotic Shotgun, its intrinsic perk, Repulsor Force, knocks away and suppresses its hit target, making it a sitting duck for bonus damage. Secondary perk The Scientific Method rewards hitting the target with bonus stats, so you can Cannon people more.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Promethium Spur is a niche set of leg armor for Dawnblade Warlocks. When you break somebody’s day with… Daybreak, Embers of Light triggers and spawns a healing and Empowering Rift where they died. There’s some neat potential use for coordinated Fireteams in this item, especially for PvE.
Knucklehead Radar is a classic Hunter helmet with a simple and useful perk. The Upgraded Sensor Pack keeps your radar up, even while ADS. It’s not flashy, but it gets the job done, especially in your more competitive PVP modes. Just remember not to run it with guns that keep your radar up already, Knucklehead.
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 Queenpiece. DLC added Legendary weapons and armor to Xur’s weekly drops, at 50 Legendary Shards and 1000 Glimmer per item. They are:
- True Prophecy (Hand Cannon)
- Escape Velocity (SMG)
- The Last Dance (Sidearm)
- Main Ingredient (Fusion Rifle)
- Hollow Words (Fusion Rifle)
- Seventh Seraph SAW (Heavy Machine Gun)
- Bite of the Fox (Sniper Rifle)

See you next week!
