For the first time since Destiny 2 Forsaken has released Xur has arrived back in the world to deliver his Exotic goods. Will we be getting something new from the expansion as a reward for sticking it out one whole week? What’s for sure is that things are a bit different. Each Exotic is being offered with a specific roll, detailed below, and will be slightly lower than your current Power Level in accordance with the changes in Forsaken. Now let’s see what’s happening.
Exotic Trace Rifle: Prometheus Lens – 29 Legendary Shards
This is an interesting weapon, one of the few Trace Rifles actually available in the game. We’ve already done our own analysis of Prometheus Lens here on the site, but of course things are a little different now that each roll is different.
The perks that will remain on the weapon regardless of the roll are; Prismatic Inferno, which causes the beam to grow the longer the trigger is held, dealing more damage over the area you’re firing at over time. The second permanent perk is Flame Refraction, which returns ammo to the magazine with each kill. allowing you to keep your beam going for as long as you’ve got the enemies to blast through.
Exotic Hunter Gauntlets: Young Ahamkara’s Spine – 23 Legendary Shards
These Gauntlets boost Recovery or Resilience, and the Exotic perk, Wish-Dragon Teeth, increases the blast radius and duration of your Tripmine. Any damage caused by the Tripmine will give you energy for it. This week’s roll offers you Fusion Rifle Loader, Hand Cannon Loader, or Impact Induction in slot one. In slot two you’ve got the choice between Shotgun Scavenger or Heavy Ammo Scavenger.
Exotic Titan Gauntlets: Ashen Wake – 23 Legendary Shards
These Gauntlets are from Warmind, and they look quite fancy, increasing Resilience greatly. The Exotic perk, Bring the Heat, makes your Fusion Grenades faster and has them explode on impact. The rolls this week for slot one are Fusion Rifle Loader, Hand Cannon Loader, or Impact Induction, In slot two you’ve got the choice of either Shotgun Scavenger or Heavy Ammo Scavenger.
Exotic Warlock Helmet: Nezerac’s Sin – 23 Legendary Shards
This Helmet increases Resilience or Recovery, and the Exotic perk, Abyssal Extractors, increases your ability recharge crate with each Void kill. The rolls for slot one this week are between Bow Targeting, Hand Cannon Targeting, and Hands-On. For slot two you can choose between Shotgun Reserves, and Heavy Ammo Finder.
This week you’ve got access to what are effectively four new Exotics. The new roll system makes each one different from the ones you’ve already got, so you need to consider what you want from your Exotics now, right when Forsaken is beginning. Over the coming weeks more and more congtent is going to be unlocked, so keep track of what you need and the way you play and that will help you decide what to get this week.
