If you played Destiny, you may be familiar with Xur, the weekly exotic item merchant. In Destiny 2, he’s back, and he can now appear all over the map. This week, he’s near the Giant's Scar fast travel point on Io, and there’s a helpful icon on the planet map to show you where he is.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- D.A.R.C.I., Sniper Rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
- Knucklehead Radar, Hunter helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Actium War Rig, Titan chest piece: 23 Legendary Shards
- Eye of Another World, Warlock helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
Each of the items comes at a maximum power level of 270 — a base power of 265, plus a Legendary (purple) mod that raises the value by five. This scales to your player’s power level, so make sure you’re buying Xur exotics on your highest level character.
D.A.R.C.I. is a sub-par exotic and we do not recommend picking it up unless you simply need it for your collection. The damage is simply too low for a sniper. Knucklehead Radar gives Hunters radar while aiming down sights. This is a good general purpose exotic for PVE and PVP if you don’t have another favorite. Actium War Rig reloads your auto rifle as you’re firing, allowing you to lay out a lot more sustained damage per second. This is helpful in both PVP and PVE and makes this a really solid exotic choice for Titans. For Warlocks, the Eye of Another World is a strong but largely uninteresting exotic. The “highlights priority targets” perk is mostly useless, but the cooldown reduction is significant enough to make this a good general use exotic.
