Xur is back in the game once again, and he’s revisiting his old lurking ground. Head to Nessus if you want to see Xur this week, he’s over on Calus’ Barge taking in all the riches the Emperor has to offer, not that he’d do anything with it. Let’s dive in and check out his, admittedly pretty awesome, offerings this week.
Exotic Linear Fusion Rifle: The Queenbreaker – 29 Legendary Shards
This week we’ve got a Forsaken Exotic weapon! This one is also one of my favourites, ripped straight from the House of Wolves expansion to Destiny 1, which hosted my finest triumph in Destiny history. We’ll post a full, in-depth, look at The Queenbreaker over the weekend, but for now we will show the stats and perks here. The stats on Queenbreaker are as follows.
- Charge Time – 633-300
- Impact – 20-41
- Range – 73-86
- Stability – 91
- Magazine Size – 6
- Reload Sped – 64
- Handling – 42-50
The hidden stats on Queenbreaker are as follows.
- Zoom – 25-35
- Inventory Size – 40
- Aim Assistance – 80
- Recoil Direction – 80
The Exotic perk on Queenbreaker, Wire Rifle, makes the weapon fire a long-range precision Arc bolt that blinds enemies. Two other perks, Marksman Sights and Combat Sights, give the weapon two sight options respectively; a long range sight with a lower charge time and higher damage, and low zoom sights that have a faster charge time with better handling. I can’t stress enough how awesome these different sights are, but you really do need to give them a go to understand for yourself.
Exotic Hunter Helmet: Knucklehead Radar – 23 Legendary Shards
This base game Helmet boosts Mobility or Resilience. The exotic perk, Upgraded Sensor Pack, allows you to see your radar while aiming down sights. It also enhances your radar while you’re crouched.
Exotic Titan Gauntlets: ACD/0 Feedback Fence – 23 Legendary Shards
Some of the best Gauntlets in the game, these boost Resilience. The Exotic perk, Fury Conductors, build energy with melee kills. When you’re struck by a melee attack it reduces incoming damage and blasts out the energy in a massive explosion.
Exotic Warlock Leg Armour: Geomag Stabilizers – 23 Legendary Shards
This Forsaken Exotic boosts Resilience or Recovery. The Exotic perk, Close Enough, tops off your Super energy when Chaos Reach is almost full, and you sprint. When you damage enemies with Chaos Reach it will extend the super.
This week I’d recommend getting Queenbreaker, plain and simple. That weapons is one of the most amazing in Destiny history, and you simply need to play around with it just so that you can experience the madness. Nothing will compare to the first time it was around in Destiny 1, but it’s still fantastic.
