Destiny - Xur's Gear For The Weekend Of June 12

by Mike Futter on Jun 12, 2015 at 03:08 AM

Happy Xursday, everyone! This week, Xur is getting ready for E3 by allowing you to dash from press conference to conference, get a much needed burst of energy to keep up with the news, and give your friends a helping hand when they stumble.

OK, this is just really a clever way of avoiding the subject. Xur has a bunch of stuff that, while good, isn't terribly revolutionary. Here's the full rundown:

Location: Xur is back in the tower, hanging out in the bar "pre-gaming" before E3. Head right from the spawn point, down the corridor, turn left and head to the stairway in the back of the hangar. He's at his reserved table in the back.

Universal Remote (exotic shotgun) - 17 strange coins

  • Kinetic Damage
  • Attack: 334/365
  • Crowd Control (Kills with this weapon grant bonus damage for a short time)
  • Universal Remote (Range and precision damage increases greatly while aiming down the sights)

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

  • Defense: 296/325
  • Light: 30/36 (No, this is not a typo)
  • Strength: 126/135
  • Heavy Weapon Ammo (Increased capacity)
  • Be Somewhere Else (Increases the duration Shoulder Charge remains active) 

Mask of the Third Man (Hunter helmet) - 13 strange coins

  • Defense: 407/447
  • Light: 36/42
  • Intellect: 104/110
  • Infusion (Replenish health when you pick up an orb)
  • Switchblade (Increases melee attack speed)
  • Unstable Current (Arc Blade attack uses less super energy)

Light Beyond Nemesis (Warlock helmet) - 13 strange coins

  • Defense: 407/447
  • Light: 36/42
  • Strength: 109/115
  • Snap Discharge (Increased melee speed)
  • Infusion (Replenish health when you pick up an orb)
  • Keeper of the Pack (Revive teammates faster, they revive you faster, super spawns additional orbs)

As usual, he also has exotic shards (seven strange coins), the Urn of Sacrifice and bounty items (one strange coin), Sparrow upgrades (twenty-three strange coins), and telemetry for scout rifles, hand cannons, and shotguns (one strange coin), and heavy ammo synth packs. Exotic chest engrams will set you back 23 motes of light. Xur is now also trading motes of light for strange coins. 

Note that Xur's exotic gear has given 36/42 light since House of Wolves was released. The stats on the Mk. 44 Stand Asides are 30/36 making it one to avoid.
