Xur offers a strong fusion rifle and some decent Exotic gear for new players
Xur has returned in Bungie’s Destiny 2, but the Exotic vendor probably won’t provide anything for veterans seeking Forsaken Exotics. The upcoming update 2.0.5 will instead provide some respite. Everyone else can head to the European Dead Zone’s Winding Cove to find Xur. He’ll remain there until the next weekly reset on October 30th at 10 AM PDT.
The Exotic gear selection includes Actium War Rig (Titan chest), Sealed Ahamkara Grasps (Hunter gloves), and Claws of Ahamkara (Warlock gloves), each for 23 Legendary Shards. Actium War Rig is a fun Exotic to pair with Sweet Business, since it constantly reloads a portion of the magazine. Sealed Ahamkara Grasps will reload your currently equipped weapon, which makes them differ from their Destiny 1 version.
The Claws of Ahamkara still provide an extra melee charge for Warlocks though. As for Telesto, the Exotic fusion rifle that is available for 29 Legendary Shards, it fires Void pellets that explode after a short delay. Multi-kills with the weapon will reload your Kinetic and Energy weapons from their reserves.
