Xur returns with a predictable range of Exotics and one good weapon.
Exotic vendor Xur has returned to Bungie’s Destiny 2 once more and he’s carrying his usual range of Exotics that you probably own. Xur is currently located in the Winding Cove of the European Dead Zone, where he’ll remain until the weekly reset.
This week, he’s carrying Exotic gear like the Lucky Raspberry (Hunter chest), Synthoceps (Titan gloves) and Skull of Dire Ahamkara (Warlock helm), each for 23 Legendary Shards and at 270 Power level. They each have their value though Synthoceps probably offers more utility in the Crucible.
The real winner this week is the Sweet Business Exotic auto rifle. Costing 29 Legendary Shards, it’s a gatling gun which spits out a nice hail of bullets on enemies. Coupled with the Titan’s rally barricade, it offers a pretty good sustained form of DPS.
Bungie has also announced a number of changes coming to Xur’s inventory with Fated Engrams (which provide Exotics you don’t currently own) and Three of Coins which boost Exotic drop rates from all activities over four hours. Those will go live in the coming weeks.
