Xur is back once again and he’s brought a load of goods that can help you out in the Iron Banner this weekend. It’s well worth looking at these items because they’ll help you with this event and collections beyond. Let’s dive in and take a look at what he’s got.
Exotic Hand Cannon: Crimson – 29 Legendary Shards
This weapon is ranked #3 in PVP, which should give you an idea of just how good it is. The stats are; 415 Rounds Per Minute, Impact of 92, Range of 60, Stability of 82, Magazine of 14, Reload Speed of 64, and Handling of 50. The hidden stats are; Zoom of 14, Inventory Size of 100, Aim Assistance of 75, and Recoil Direction 55.
These stats are all stacked very nicely in a direction we want, but it’s the perks that bring this weapon to life.
The Exotic perk, Banned Weapon, makes Crimson fire in 3 round bursts. The rest of the perks are; Smallbore, which increases Range and Stability, Accurized Rounds, which increases Range again, Cruel Remedy, which heals you when you get kills with Crimson and refills the Magazine with precision kills, and Heavy Grip, which increases Stability but decreases Handling Speed.
Overall this is a great weapon. We’ll be doing a much more in-depth look over the next few days so keep an eye out if you’re still not sure at this point
Exotic Titan Gauntlets: ACD/0 Feedback Fence – 23 Legendary Shards
These might be base game Gauntlets but they look as though they belong in Warmind. These brilliant arm decorations boost Resilience and the Exotic perk, Fury Conductors, builds up explosive energy with melee kills, which is then unleashed with a melee attack on the next enemy in a might explosion.
Exotic Hunter Leg Armour: Fr0st-EE5 – 23 Legendary Shards
These fancy-looking leg covers are actually from Warmind and look sleek as anything else in that DLC, boosting Mobility. The Exotic perk, Rapid Cooldown, increases the regeneration of melee, dodge, and grenades while sprinting. If you throw out a little dodge you’ll also increase your sprint speed.
Exotic Warlock Chest Armour: Starfire Protocol – 23 Legendary Shards
While it’s another base game Exotic it does look great, and it boosts Recovery or Resilience. The Exotic perk, Fusion Harness, gives you an additional Fusion Grenade charge, and the grenades will generate faster in general. Any kills with a Fusion Grenade will grant Rift energy.
Out of everything this week I have to say that Crimson is what you should be buying. There isn’t going to be a better time to buy the weapon, particularly if you’re trying to max out your Iron Banner Rank this weekend. Bear your collection in mind and make sure you’re getting something to help you along the way. Let us know what you buy in the comments.
