Xur has returned to get rid of those woes you’re feeling about the current Faction Rallies event. This week he’s set up in The Tower and has a bunch of interesting Exotic items for us all to spend our hard earned Legendary Shards on. So, on top of the Legacy Engram and Three Of Coins, let’s see what Xur is selling.
Exotic Shotgun: Tractor Cannon – 29 Legendary Shards
This Shotgun looks like it’s straight out of Portal, and for that alone I would justify buying it, but let’s look at those stats to make sure it’s actually a worth it. It fires 84 rounds per minute, has an Impact of 65, an abismal Range of 19, Stability of 82, Reload Speed of 24, and Handling of 46. The hidden stats are a Zoom of 12, Aim Assistance of 90, and Recoil Direction of 60.
The Exotic Perk on this weapon, Repulsor Force, is basically the weapon’s shot which is to produce a powerful impulse that pushes enemies away. Extended Barrel increases that terrible Range but decreases Handling Speed. Particle Repeater constrains the recoil on each bolt, increasing Stability. The Scientific Method temporarily increases speed and handling when you damage an opponent with the weapon. Finally, Composite Stock increases Stability and slightly increases Handling Speed.
Honestly this weapon is pretty damn awesome in the flesh and on paper. It’s one of those guns that looks like a gimmick and kind of feels like one too, but in the right hands it’s lethal. Looking at the ways in which people use the gun it’s actually better in PVP, or at least more people are using it in PVP, so if you spend more time in that area it’s definitely a gun for you.
Exotic Helmet: Knucklehead Radar – 23 Legendary Shards
This Helmet increases Resilience and Health Recovery. The Exotic Perk, Upgraded Sensor Pack, provides you with Radar while you’re aiming down sights. This is an extremely useful bit of gear if you’re like me and run around shooting the crap out of far away Guardians in PVP.
Exotic Titan Chest Armour: Actium War Rig – 23 Legendary Shards
This Armour increases Resilience and Health Recovery. The Exotic Perk, steadily reloads a portion of you equipped Auto Rifle’s magazine from reserves. This will be most useful to any Titan’s who prefer Auto Rifle’s and want that reserve ammo to steadily make it’s way into the weapon.
Exotic Warlock Leg Armour: Transversive Steps – 23 Legendary Shards
With this Leg Armour you get increased Mobility and Resilience. The Exotic Perk, Strange Protractor, increases movement speed while springing and reloads energy weapons. Aside from that awesome Perk, these things look amazing, so I’d get them in a heartbeat.
So what’s worth buying this week? As always you need to think about collecting Exotics so get what you don’t have. The weapon this week is one that I’ve been after for a while, so I imagine a lot of you are as well because of its rarity. Ultimately you should get what will suit your main character, but outside of that go for what you feel looks the best and deal with the stats later.
