The Exotic weapon update has done a whole lot of good for Bungie’s Destiny 2, but the Exotic armour could still use some work. That being said, it might be worth checking out Xur’s wares this week – find him on Nessus in Watcher’s Grave.
This week, Xur is carrying the Knucklehead Radar (Hunter helm), Ashen Wake (Titan gloves) and Vesper of Radius (Warlock chest), each for 23 Legendary Shards. The Ashen Wake is one of the new Warmind Exotics and works with the Sunbreaker subclass. Not only does it allow Fusion Grenades to explode on impact but also increases their throw speed.
The Exotic weapon this week is the Prometheus Lens, which retails for 29 Legendary Shards and received one heck of a buff. The Trace Rifle causes more damage the longer its beam is trained on an enemy. Kills help extend the magazine’s ammo without taking directly from your reserves, making it a strong crowd-control weapon as well.
If you’re feeling feisty, then pick up the Five of Swords from Xur as well. It upgrades the Nightfall’s Rare Challenge Card to Legendary and allows additional modifiers to the Prestige Nightfall.
