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 in the EDZ, standing on the edge of a bluff in the Winding Cove.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- Telesto, Void fusion rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
- Aeon Swift, Hunter arms: 23 Legendary Shards
- Lion Rampant, Titan legs: 23 Legendary Shards
- Ophidian Aspect, Warlock arms: 23 Legendary Shards
- Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)
Xur’s inventory caps out at 1050.
Telesto is a returning exotic from Destiny, added back in during Curse of Osiris. This fan-favorite fusion rifle has two perks that make it special. First is Unplanned Reprieve. When you fire Telesto, the fusion rifle particles attach to the enemy and explode at a later time. Second, Harbinger’s Pulse causes multikills to reload your kinetic and energy weapons.
Telesto is easily one of the most fun weapons to use in Destiny 2. It’s very powerful in Strikes and Public Events for clearing large groups of enemies or dealing with a single threat. But more importantly, Telesto simply feels Exotic every time you fire it. Don’t pass up the opportunity to add Telesto to your armory.
Aeon Swift is a pair of Hunter gauntlets from Curse of Osiris. Its exotic perk, Aeon Energy, will grant energy to other Aeon item users in your fireteam. You’ll share ability energy with other classes, and get back dodge energy if they use the perk for you.
These gauntlets, and their matching sets for other classes, are actual garbage. There is no reason to ever use these. Do not buy them. They’re terrible. Please don’t give Xur the satisfaction of a sale this week.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 66 total stats.
Lion Rampant is a great exotic to have in specific situations. Its main perk is Jump Jets, which provides additional aerial mobility and now gives more accurate hip firing while in the air. That may not sound like much (and it isn’t, in most cases), but some players swear by these in PvP and some jumping activities like the Gauntlet or the Reactor Room. Pick these up and keep them around; you never know when you’ll need a more accurate jump.

The Ophidian Aspect gauntlets were first released with Curse of Osiris. Their exotic perk is Cobra Totemic, which causes weapons handled by the wearer to ready and reload faster than normal. As a bonus, melee range is also extended. These are great “anytime” exotics. No matter what kind of activity you’re doing, you’d be better off wearing these gauntlets than not. Pick them up for yourself and see what you think.
