Hunters get their first repeat

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 Winding Cove fast travel point in the EDZ, 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:

  • Vigilance Wing, pulse rifle gun: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Foetracer, Hunter helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
  • An Insurmountable Skullfort, Titan helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Nezarec's Sin, 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.

The Vigilance Wing is a solid pick for crucible. Its five-round burst gives this gun a fast time-to-kill and if you are a fan of pulse rifles, it’s tough to do better than this one. Foetracer is a great pick for Hunters, allowing you to track enemies around corners and through walls in Crucible, but we’ve already seen this item from Xur and it’s a bummer to have repeats already. If you missed it the first time around, you’ve got another chance. An Insurmountable Skullfort complements the all-around strength of the striker subclass right now, making this a great pick-up for Titans. Finally, Nezarec's Sin is a niche helmet for Warlocks. If you love playing voidwalker, and have void energy and heavy weapons that you like to use, this can be a fun combination, but it’s not a must-buy.
