With less than two weeks until fans get their first look at Destiny 2 gameplay, the community is merely biding its time. But even then, there are still plenty of reasons to keep active within Destiny 1 right now, and soon players will be jumping back in for some Mayhem Clash Iron Banner. Or maybe some just want to poke in from time to time and see what exotic weapons and armor Xur has for sale.
Xur's Location and Exotic Armor
This week, Destiny players can find Xur in the Vanguard section of the Tower, which is in its Eastern wing. Head directly straight after spawning into the Tower, follow the path past Eris and the Crucible vendors, and Xur will be in the back room to the right. This is the same room that houses the Vanguards for each of the three Destiny classes.
Xur’s exotic armor selection this weekend includes the Twilight Garrison chest piece for Titans, the Don’t Touch Me gauntlets for Hunters, and the Voidfang Vestments chest piece for Warlocks.
Of the three pieces, we would recommend the Titan chest armor the most because it suits the mobility of the Titan very well. Like Shadowstep on a Nightstalker Hunter, the Titan with Garrison can get out of gunfights very quick and can traverse large areas in seconds.
Outside of that, the other two pieces are decent exotics for their respective classes, but not as useful as some other armor options. The Hunter gauntlets are fun to use in PvE sections that require stealth, though.
Xur's Exotic Weapon
MIDA Multi-Tool is Xur’s exotic weapon for this week, a solid scout rifle that’s deadly accurate. At one point in time MIDA was one of the best PvP weapons in Destiny, but Bungie has since nerfed the gun enough to bring its popularity down.
Still, the fast movement afforded by the MIDA Multi-Tool and its hair trigger make the gun worth using in certain situations. For PvP it’s great on maps with long sight lines, and PvE players tend to use it on raid sections that require fast movements.
Exotic Weapon Bundles
And finally, Xur’s exotic weapon bundles for this weekend are the Monte Carlo auto rifle and its Royal Flush ornament, and the Zhalo Supercell auto rifle and its Shock Hazard ornament.
