If you played Destiny, you may be familiar with Xur, the weekly Exotic item merchant. In Destiny 2, he’s back, and he now appears all over the map. This week, you can find Xur in the EDZ, hanging out on a rock bluff.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- The Wardcliff Coil, rocket launcher: 29 Legendary Shards
- The Sixth Coyote, Hunter chest: 23 Legendary Shards
- One-Eyed Mask, Titan helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Verity’s Brow, Warlock helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Isochronal Engram: 97 Legendary Shards
- Invitation quest: 9 Legendary Shards
Xur’s inventory caps out at 931 if you’re 950. He also offers specific rolls on each armor piece each week, giving out different perks for the same pieces.
The Wardcliff Coil
The Wardcliff Coil is one of the most fun and unique guns in Destiny 2. Its first exotic perk is Mad Scientist, which causes the Wardcliff Coil to fire a volley of rockets. The secondary perk, Mechanized Autoloader, automatically reloads the magazine when the user walks over heavy ammo.
This rocket launcher is hard to aim, requiring some kind of strange sweeping motion to aim the rockets where you want them to land. But the effort is worth it, and the Catalyst for Wardcliff will tighten the spread if you get lucky enough to pick it up. In Nightfalls and Public Events, the Wardcliff Coil can decimate groups of enemies in an instant. If you don’t have this gun, pick it up before Xur goes away this week.
The Sixth Coyote
The Sixth Coyote is an Exotic chest piece from from Forsaken. Its Exotic perk is Double Dodge, which is exactly what it sounds like; Hunter players can hold two stacks of their class ability: dodge.
This could be a great chest piece if you’re under leveled. If you just need to go invisible and resurrect your allies more often, this is a great piece of gear to pair with Nightstalker.
Xur’s roll this week is Void, and comes with 47 total stats.
One-Eyed Mask is a Titan helmet from Forsaken, and it’s one of the best PvP Exotics in the game. Its Exotic perk is Vengeance. When enemies deal damage to you, you’ll mark them, allowing you to track them through walls. Killing marked targets gives you an Overshield and increases damage for a short time. This helmet is incredible; you need to have it if you have or will ever have a Titan.
Xur’s roll this week is Void, and comes with 48 total stats.
This Warlock helmet is fairly mediocre. Its exotic perk is The Fourth Magic, which causes your energy weapon kills to regenerate grenade energy for you and your nearby allies. This perk is fine and always useful. However, when compared to many of the other Warlock exotics out there — Crown of Tempests, Geomag Stabilizers, Chromatic Fire, etc. — there is almost no situation where this helmet is worth using.
Xur’s roll this week is Solar, and comes with 48 total stats.
If you haven’t completed the Invitation quest yet, Xur is still offering it for nine Legendary Shards.
