It’s Xursday! The very first week of Xur for players on PC! I hope you have managed to get enough Shards to make it all worthwhile.
This week he can be found near the Giant’s Scar on Io. You can find him by checking the planets in your Director and a green symbol will show you where he is. Just load into the nearest fast travel point and bring up your Ghost. The same green symbol will again show you his location.
At the moment, he just sells four Exotic items, one weapon and an armour piece for each class. The Exotic Engrams, sparrow enhancements and other items all seem to be a thing of the past.
Xur also accepts Legendary Shards as payment now, appearing to have moved on from his desire for Strange Coins. Legendary shards can be gotten by breaking down Legendary Weapons. You may also get them from various Vendors in the game if you are lucky.
This week Xur is selling the following:
D.A.R.C.I – Sniper Rifle (29 Legendary Shards)
Knucklehead Radar – Hunter Helmet (23 Legendary Shards)
Actium War Rig – Titan Chest Piece (23 Legendary Shards)
Eye of Another World – Warlock Helmet (23 Legendary Shards)
This week is an interesting one, as the game has an influx of new players on PC. My advice, buy everything. Always buy everything. The D.A.R.C.I is a fun time Sniper Rifle with a serious rate of fire. I’m predicting big things for this weapon in PvP on PC due to the insane benefit it will give people who can rapidly change target.
Knucklehead Radar is a must buy for PvP minded hunters. The main perk that allows you to keep your radar active it just too strong. Actium War Rig for Titans provides a stready reload of ammo for Auto Rifles, can be pretty hilarious when paired with the Sweet Business. There are better Exotics for the class, however. Finally the Eye of Another World for Warlocks is a steady Exotic regardless of subclass. All in all, not a terrible week for Xur.
So Guardian, what goodies did you grab from Xur this week?
