The weekly Exotic item merchant, Xur, hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny. In Destiny 2, he can appear all over the map, as well as inside the Tower. This week, you can find Xur on Nessus, standing on Calus’ barge in the Watcher’s Grave.

Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:

  • Black Talon, Void sword: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Raiden Flux, Hunter chest: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Synthoceps, Titan arms: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Promethium Spur, Warlock legs: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)

Xur’s inventory caps out at 1041 if you’re at 1050.

Black Talon

Black Talon is a powerful Exotic sword from the Forsaken expansion. Its Exotic perk, Crow’s Wings, allows it to fire a Void projectile after two subsequent heavy attacks. Its trait, Tireless Blade, regenerates ammo on certain powerful attack kills.

The Black Talon is a very powerful sword right now. Adding a ranged attack to a sword takes away a lot of the weapon type’s usual danger. Instead of slamming your blade into enemies in their face, you can blast at them from a safe distance. If you don’t have Black Talon, you should add it to your collection.

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. This is one of the best Exotics for Hunters. If you don’t have Raiden Flux, it’s worth your Legendary Shards.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 62 total stats.

Synthoceps

Destiny 2 patch 1.2.1 brought changes to Exotic armor. As we wrote near the patch’s release, “Synthoceps will now buff melee damage and super damage by a flat amount for a full eight seconds after being surrounded by three or more enemies. This is potentially a very powerful Exotic now.”

Its Biotic Enhancements intrinsic perk offers “increased melee lunge range” as well as “improved melee and Super damage when surrounded.” This is one of the most powerful Titan exotics in the game and always benefits you for wearing them. If you don’t have these, buy them!

Xur’s roll this week comes with 62 total stats.

Promethium Spur

Promethium Spur is a relatively new Warlock Exotic, added in season 9. Its unique perk, Embers of Light, causes Daybreak kills to spawn healing and empowering Rifts on the ground. This Exotic has a really interesting perk, but it’s not particularly useful in most cases. Maybe you’ll save the life of a teammate this way, but it’s a situational Warlock Exotic at best.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 60 total stats.
