Destiny - Xur's Gear And Upgrades For The Weekend Of January 2

by Mike Futter on Jan 02, 2015 at 06:34 AM

It’s Friday, which means every Guardian’s favorite itinerant merchant is back in the Tower. Xur has with him some goodies for every class from The Dark Below expansion this week.

This week, Xur is hiding in the bowels of the Tower. Head through the hangar and down to the left. Keep descending and you’ll find him in the back of the bar (likely nursing a New Year’s hangover).

Visit him for the following items before he disappears on Sunday morning:

Dragon’s Breath (exotic rocket launcher, The Dark Below ) - 17 strange coins

  • Solar
  • Attack: 302/331
  • Tripod (increases magazine from two to three)
  • Quickdraw (faster weapon swap)
  • Pyromancer (rounds leave a solar flare upon detonation)

Mk. 44 Stand Asides (Titan leg armor, The Dark Below) - 13 strange coins

  • Defense: 296/325
  • Light: 30/36
  • Heavy Weapon Ammo (increase capacity)
  • Be Somewhere Else (increases the duration shoulder charge remains active) 

Don’t Touch Me (Hunter gauntlets, The Dark Below) - 13 strange coins

  • Defense: 333/366
  • Light: 30/36
  • Special Weapon Loader (increase special weapon reload speed)
  • Inverse Shadow (increased super energy gained from killing minions of the Darkness)

  • Defense: 444/488
  • Light: 30/36

  • Heavy Weapon Ammo (increase capacity)
  • Starfire Protocol (gain an extra fusion grenade)

As usual, he also has exotic shards (seven strange coins), the Urn of Sacrifice (one strange coin), Sparrow upgrades (twenty-three strange coins), and telemetry for auto rifles, hand cannons, and fusion rifles (one strange coin). This week’s exotic engram will net you a gauntlet for 23 motes of light.
