Once again it’s the time of the week where Destiny 2 players descend en-masse to visit the game’s merchant Xur. This time around the tight-fisted fella has sauntered over to Io, and you’ll find him close to the Warmind Vault JS-2 hidden in a wee cave. If you can’t find him, remember you can always check the map.

If you’re not one for spoilers, now is the time to look away (or you can go and read the Super Mario Odyssey review, it’s a doozy).

The D.A.R.C.I is a fun little sniper rifle which costs 29 Legendary Shards. It thrives when Personal Assistant is active, giving the weapon has better target acquisition and deals more precision damage. Personally I’d tend to avoid sniper rifles, as they’re underpowered in Destiny 2; you’re better off using the linear fusion rifle.

Knucklehead Radar is a helmet specifically for the Hunter class. When using this with your primary weapons the radar remains active, and is a decent piece of gear which is best used in the game’s PvP. This can be bought for 23 Legendary Shards.

The Actium War Rig is a piece of Titan class armour, and you’ll benefit from its use in combination with the Sweet Business auto rifle. Equipping this will boost your DPS across all auto rifles. You can pick this up from Xur for 23 Legendary Shards.

Finally, Eye of Another World is a Warlock class helmet. On first impressions it looks absolutely amazing, and it’s borderline hypnotic. When equipped it helps by highlighting targets, and reduces cooldowns for your Grenade, Melee, and Rift abilities. This is also available for 23 Legendary Shards.

Each of these Exotics come with a max power level of 270, and a base power of 265 that’s boosted by the Legendary purple mod, which adds five to the total value. Just remember that Xur’s weapons will scale to your character’s power level, so don’t go buying anything with your lower level alt character(s). That’d be silly.
