Head to the EDZ for some exotics

Destiny 2 Xur

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, he’s in the EDZ. You can find Xur hanging out on a bluff, standing next to a Fallen Ketch.

Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:

  • The Wardcliff Coil, Exotic rocket launcher: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Raiden Flux, Hunter chest: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Hallowfire Heart, Titan chest: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Lunafaction Boots, Warlock boots: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Isochronal Engram: 97 Legendary Shards
  • Invitation quest: 9 Legendary Shards

Xur’s inventory should cap out at 681 if you’re 700. He also offers specific rolls on each armor piece each week, giving out different perks for the same pieces. We’ve highlighted any great rolls below.

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.

Raiden Flux

The Hunter exotic this week is Raiden Flux. This chest piece’s main perk is Synapse Junction, which causes subsequent hits from the Arcstrider staff to deal more damage and extend the duration of the Super. There are specific times in raids or Nightfalls where this chest piece can help clear out multiple enemies at once. If you learn to use it, it can even be powerful against boss enemies. If you don’t have Raiden Flux, it’s worth your Legendary Shards.

This week’s roll:

Slot 1: Unflinching bow aim, unflinching fusion rifle aim, unflinching kinetic aim

Slot 2: Scout rifle reserves, special ammo finder

This is a great Exotic with a decent roll. Unflinching kinetic is useful almost all the time, especially in PvP. If you don’t love your roll, consider picking this one up.

Hallowfire Heart

This is an excellent Sunbreaker Exotic. The main perk is Sunfire Furnace, which improves the recharge rate of your abilities when Hammer of Sol is charged. Hallowfire Heart will only benefit you when you are holding onto your Super and not using it — it definitely takes some getting used to. This is one of our favorite Titan exotics nonetheless, and can be really powerful if you learn how to use it.

This week’s roll:

Slot 1: Unflinching bow aim, unflinching fusion rifle aim, unflinching kinetic aim

Slot 2: Scout rifle reserves, special ammo finder

This is a decent roll on a great Exotic. Kinetic aim is always great, and is especially useful in PvP. If you don’t love the roll you have, this is a good pickup.

Lunafaction Boots

Lunafaction Boots are very powerful Warlock Exotic boots, and have been since the original Destiny 2. Their Exotic perk is Alchemical Etchings. This perk instantly refills the ammo of all allies standing in a Lunafaction-empowered Rift. The ammo is pulled from the player’s reserves, and Empowering Rifts also increase weapon range. This is one of the best Warlock Exotics in the game for endgame activities. You need these.

This week’s roll:

Slot 1: Fusion rifle dexterity, hand cannon dexterity, Outreach (Rift reduces melee cooldown)

Slot 2: Scout rifle scavenger, special ammo finder

This roll is fine at best, and doesn’t have much synergy — even Outreach only buffs your melee, which isn’t useful here. If you need a new roll of Lunafaction, pick this up. Otherwise you can pass this week.

Invitation

This item starts the Invitation of the Nine quest. This week, Xur offers The Twins. It’ll cost you nine Legendary Shards.
