A powerful Exotic pulse rifle, two great gear pieces, and Aeon Soul await.
It’s yet another week in Destiny 2 without any Forsaken Exotics from Xur. Nevertheless, ol’ tentacle face does have some pretty great gear (depending on your class) and a great weapon. You can find him on Giant’s Scar, Io, where he’ll remain until the weekly reset.
This week’s Exotic gear is the Orpheus Rig (Hunter boots), Synthoceps (Titan gloves), and Aeon Soul (Warlock gloves), each for 23 Legendary Shards. Orpheus Rig is an excellent choice for Nightstalkers, providing more ability energy for enemies that have been tethered, while also increasing the shots in Moebius Quiver. Synthoceps are great for all Titan classes, increasing melee lunge range along with melee and Super damage when surrounded. The less said about Aeon Soul, the better.
Graviton Lance is the Exotic weapon of the week. It’s a two-burst pulse rifle that creates an explosion on kills and spawns Void projectiles that seek foes. The second shot in the burst has no damage fall-off and does great damage, making this is a solid substitute for a Scout Rifle. It can be yours for 29 Legendary Shards.
If you haven’t played Destiny 2: Forsaken in a while, you might want to check back in soon. Gambit will be seeing some changes, and sandbox adjustments for weapons like shotguns and linear fusion rifles have been announced. Look out for update 2.2.0 with all of these changes to arrive in early March.
