We have the early scoop on where to find the vendor Xur and what exotic armor and weapons he has available to Destiny players for the weekend of November 4th.
Xur has once again returned to the world of Destiny, and brought with him a bounty of exotic treasures for players to spend their Strange Coins on. This week, players can find Xur in The Reef, in the only spot he can actually appear.
For those who might not be familiar with Xur’s hiding spot in The Reef, all you need to do is head to the right after spawning in and Xur will be tucked behind a door that is normally closed. It also helps if there are other Destiny guardians visiting Xur, so that you can see where exactly he is.
Xur’s exotic armor selection this week consists of the Taikonaut helmet for Titans, the Young Ahamkara’s Spine gauntlets for Hunters, and The Ram helmet for Warlocks. Out of the three we’d recommend The Ram more than the other because it gives players a little extra armor in both PvE and PvP. In PvE it’s not nearly as effective, but in Crucible chances are you will see a fair number of “Ram-locks” running around.
Some Titan players say that the Taikonaut is worth using, because it adds tracking to any rocket launcher, but tracking isn’t an essential weapon perk anyway. In fact, most of the better rocket launchers in Destiny can either roll with tracking as a perk or they come with tracking standard, like Gjallarhorn or Truth.
Red Death is the exotic weapon Xur has for sale this week, a pulse rifle that can come in handy in sticky situations. Because the weapon has the ability to regenerate a player’s heath after every kill, Red Death has found plenty of uses in PvE and PvP. It’s not quite as popular as it once was, especially compared to some PvP focused pulse rifles like Clever Dragon, but Red Death is still a valuable asset.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Taikonaut (Titan Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Hunter Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- The Ram (Warlock Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Red Death (Pulse Rifle) – 23 Strange Coins
- Shock Hazard Ornament (Zhalo Supercell) – 25 Silver Dust
- Queen’s Command Ornament (Telesto) – 25 Silver Dust
- Legacy Body Armor Engram – 29 Strange Coins
- Three of Coins (5) – 7 Strange Coins
It seems that any hope players had of Xur selling a non-Legacy engram have been dashed, as the exotic vendor has now returned to his old ways for consecutive weeks. We may never know why Xur happened to sell regular exotic engrams for one week, but the best guess is that Bungie simply made a mistake. Unfortunately, that mistake has presumably helped the developer prevent any future mistakes from happening.
Destiny: Rise of Iron is out now for PS4 and Xbox One.
