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 September 30th.
Another week of Xur, and most Destiny fans will be disappointed with what the exotics he has to offer this week. Not that the exotics are bad—they’re actually quite good—but they have been around for a while in Destiny, and veteran players will no doubt already have a version of these exotics already leveled up in their inventory.
New exotics have been added to Xur’s loot pool, and fans will no doubt be hankering for some of them to make them into his items for the week (just as he brought last week). This week is not for those fans; however, for anyone new to the game with the launch of Rise of Iron, theses are some of the best exotics for each class. And all are very useful for use in the Crucible, which could be good especially with the return of Trials of Osiris this weekend and Iron Banner next week.
But first, where to find Xur—he is located in the Tower in the hangar lounge. When spawning into the Tower, head right and go up the stairs, hang a left, turn right and go down the stairs into the hangar, then turn left and go all the way down the flights of stairs to the very bottom left corner of the area.
The Titan’s The Armamentarium is one of the go-to exotic armor choices no matter what subclass is being used. It grants an extra grenade, and can be especially deadly when paired with the Striker Titan’s Lightning Grenade.
Sealed Ahamkara Grasps are equally useful on any Hunter subclass. These gauntlets’ exotic perk grants an additional melee charge and has a chance to reload a player’s Primary weapon on a melee hit. These can give a Gunslinger two Throwing Knives, a Nightstalker two Smoke grenades, and a Bladedancer two Blink Strikes.
Lastly, the Voidfang Vestments are not as subclass agnostic as the other two armor pieces this week, but it is one of the best choices for Voidwalkers, especially those who use Axion Bolt grenades. This exotic chest piece will allow a player to spawn (or respawn) with full grenade charge, and Axion Bolt gains an extra seeker.
The MIDA Multi-Tool is also a great choice of primary for both PvP and PvE. It’s worth picking up any of these exotics for those who don’t already have them in their collection.
Don’t forget, Xur now brings two randomly selected ornaments for exotic weapons, this week being one for Truth and the other for Invective.
