Xur returns with some middling armor and a good heavy sniper rifle.
Another week, another selection of Exotics from Xur in Destiny 2. He’s located on Io in Giant’s Scar so take a break from grinding Seraph Towers for some more disappointment. Xur will be present until tomorrow’s weekly reset so you’d best hurry.
Xur’s Exotic armor this week includes Dunemarchers (Titan gloves), The Sixth Coyote (Hunter chest) and Claws of Ahamkara (Warlock gloves), each for 23 Legendary Shards. The Sixth Coyote can be enjoying for many in Crucible since it provides a second Dodge charge. Dunemarchers will build up a static charge while sprinting that will hit adjacent foes when shoulder-charging an enemy.
As for the Exotic weapon, it’s the heavy sniper rifle D.A.R.C.I. which can be yours for 29 Legendary Shards. Available in the game since launch, it has two key perks – Personal Assistant, which displays an enemy’s health when aiming at them, and Target Acquired, which provides more precision damage when the former is active. It’s not quite Whisper of the Worm-level in terms of damage but it’s still a very good sniper rifle for bosses.
