After some pretty decent gear in previous weeks, Xur returns with junk.
Exotic vendor Xur has returned to the wilderness in Bungie’s Destiny 2 and if you thought the past few weeks’ offerings were decent, then you might be disappointed. Xur can be found on Nessus at Watcher’s Grave and he’ll remain there until the weekly reset.
This week, Xur has the Knucklehead Radar (Hunter helm), Peacekeepers (Titan boots) and Wings of Sacred Dawn (Warlock chest), each for 23 Legendary Shards and at 270 Power level thanks to a +5 Power level mod. Peacekeepers are decent for the madmen who run double SMGs and Knucklehead Radar is pretty good for Hunters with its constant radar even when aiming down sights. Wings of Sacred Dawn is…yeah.
The Exotic weapon this week is the Fighting Lion, a grenade launcher for your Energy slot that costs 29 Legendary Shards. It does more damage to shielded enemies and will refill its magazine if you kill foes quickly. It doesn’t exactly boast the highest damage though and honestly, there are better weapons to equip in just about every other slot that a grenade launcher could go in.
