Xur has arrived! This week you’ll find him on EDZ, and he’s carrying the The Colony (Grenade Launcher), Shinobu’s Vow (Hunter Gauntlets), Mk. 44 Stand Asides (Titan Legs), The Stag (Warlock Helm).
Some interesting additions this week with nearly all of the exotics worth grabbing. The MK. 44’s grant you a shield after sprinting for a short amount of time, which in Destiny 1 with the prevalence of Shotgun charging was an absolute nightmare to compete against. In Destiny 2, however, they still hold some value when you do have heavy ammo or if you’re busting through strikes quickly. The Stag also is quite unique; it’ll give you rift energy whilst you are critically hurt and when you die, it’ll drop a rift on your ghost – ready for that revive or just to help out team mates who are supporting your efforts.
LOOT OF THE WEEK – The Colony
Without doubt, the coolest exotic this week easily goes to The Colony. Whilst it’s not always the most practical, it’s certainly one of the most fun and unique designs you’ll find in the entire game. Fire this rocket launch and on impact the detonations releases several small robotic spiders that chase your enemy for a short period. Should they hit the damage can be decent, but even if they don’t it’s hilarious to watch enemies run for their lives in PvP.
