Xur has brought four items from Destiny 2’s first expansion this weekend


Destiny 2’s first expansion was nearly three months away now, but Xur is like a gift that keeps on giving. Good old tentacle-face has brought with him four Exotics from the expansion, and they’re all pretty good in their own ways.

Where is Xur?

Xur is in the Tower this week, since the Flashpoint is on Mercury. He’s in the Hangar right behind the Dead Orbit vendor Arach Jalaal.

This week’s weapon is Crimson, and this thing is a beast. It’s a hand cannon that fires a three round burst, and kills with the weapon heal you. Precision kills refill the magazine, too. This thing shoots like a laser beam, especially on PC. Pick it up for 29 Legendary Shards.

The Hunter armor this weekend is Graviton Forfeit, a helmet that pairs with the Nightstalker subclass. This helm increases the duration of any invisibility effects, and your melee recharges faster when you’re invisible. It costs 23 Legendary Shards.

For Titans, Xur has the classic Helm of Saint-14 helmet. This helm will blind enemies that enter your Ward of Dawn shield when using the Sentinel subclass, and guarding with your Sentinel Shield will temporarily blind nearby enemies. It’s on sale for 23 Legendary Shards.

This week’s Warlock armor is Vesper of Radius, one of the best-looking chest pieces in the game. This armor’s perk will make your Rift release an Arc shockwave when you cast it, and Rift energy will recharge faster when surrounded by enemies. It costs 23 Legendary Shards.
