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 a bluff overlooking the Winding Cove.

Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:

  • The Prospector, Arc heavy grenade launcher: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Ophidia Spathe, Hunter chest: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Doom Fang Pauldron, Titan arms: 23 Legendary Shards
  • The Stag, Warlock helmet: 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.

The Prospector

The Prospector is a powerful grenade launcher in PvE. Its perk, Excavation, allows you to simultaneously detonate all grenades that you have recently fired, and the launcher is fully automatic. The grenades also stick to surfaces and deal burn damage. While The Prospector used to be one of the top PvE grenade launchers, there are currently better options out there. It’ll likely come back around, though, so if you don’t have it yet, pick it up.

Ophidia Spathe

The Ophidia Spathe chest piece’s exotic perk is Scissor Fingers, which lets hunters throw two knives per charge. This exotic is pretty neat, and throwing knives have always been fun to use in Destiny. This piece is also fairly unique, as it lets players hold two charges of their melee ability while also granting them two charges instantly upon recharge.

With the addition of Way of a Thousand Cuts in Forsaken, this is one of the best Hunter chest pieces in the game. When combined with the subclass’ unique abilities, you can essentially throw knives constantly. It’s a really fun play style, and definitely worth trying out if you have a Hunter.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 61 total stats.

Doom Fang Pauldron

Doom Fang Pauldron is pretty cool if you’re into the Sentinel Titan. Its Exotic perk, Horns of Doom, causes shield bash kills to quickly recharge your shield throw while you’re using your Super. Additionally, melee ability kills give you extra Super energy, and shield throw kills extend the duration of your Super. If you like the top tree of Sentinel, this is a fun Exotic that you can use in all kinds of activities. If you’re a regular Sentinel user, this is a must-have.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 61 total stats.

The Stag

A returning Exotic from Destiny (in name and look at least), The Stag’s Exotic perk, Dearly Departed, gives you Rift energy when you’re close to death. When you die, you’ll also drop a healing rift under your feet. This Exotic has some great stats and some interesting perks.

Perks that are only useful when you die aren’t great. However, this helmet has potential to help you learn difficult encounters, or save an ally’s life in Iron Banner.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 64 total stats.
