Destiny Xur’s Inventory: Should You Buy Truth?

This week Xur has brought with him the exotic rocket launcher, Truth. However, just because a weapon is exotic is not enough to warrant it’s purchase, so we’re here to help you decide whether or not you need this very fine rocket launcher.

Truth has two perks tat make it extremely useful in battle wherever you are. The first is Prototype Trueseeker, which makes rounds from this weapon seek their target aggressively. Now you may not understand why that’s important when your aim is amazing, but trust s when we say that a little extra help from what is effectively a guided missile never goes amiss.

The second exotic perk for Truth is Grenades and Horseshoes, which makes rockets detonate early depending on their proximity to their target. This means that if your target sidesteps your rocket and continues shooting, you know that the rocket is going to blow up when it gets close to them anyway. So you can turn around and walk away as you wait for the sound of your enemy’s scream and a massive explosion to fill the air.

When these two perks are brought together in one weapon there’s very little they can’t do. Take Raids for example, when you come up against a boss you need to make every shot count. What better way to make your rockets count that to have them explode even when they’re just near your target, and gently guide themselves towards them? Add in the fact that the weapon can be infused up the the highest Light level and you’re in for a real treat.

In PVP the weapon performs even better. Every time you’ve picked up heavy ammo, loaded that rocket into the chamber, and fired only to see your enemy jump or dodge out of the way can no be made up for. Truth will actively seek out your target, and we’re talking about way more than a simple nudge in the right direction. Truth rockets can whizz past your foe and make you look like an idiot, but seconds late that rocket will return and blow their backs off.

While it might not be the recommended rocket launcher for use by pro Crucible players, this weapon is far better than any Legendary rocket launcher you’ll pick up from vendors. It’s also going to count towards your Age of Triumph Record Book when the time comes for you to fill it out. You’ll need every Grimoire card and every exotic weapon, and if you don’t have this it counts for two of those things. If you’re at a loose end for what to do with your Strange Coins, it’s a pretty great way to throw them away at the very least.
