So-so Exotics with a pretty good set of Hunter gauntlets are available this week.
Everyone’s favorite/most hated Exotic vendor is back in Bungie’s Destiny 2. This week, Xur is in the Winding Cove in the European Dead Zone. He’ll be there until the weekly reset next Tuesday so make sure to browse his wares before then.
The Exotic weapon for the week is Lord of Wolves, a burst-fire shotgun that can unleash a longer burst when holding down the reload button. It costs 29 Legendary Shards but has seen a number of nerfs since its days of terrorizing the Crucible. Pick it up for fun in PvP and avoid it for PvE.
The Exotic gear this week includes Eternal Warrior (Titan helm), Astrocyte Verse (Warlock helm) and Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Hunter gloves), each for 23 Legendary Shards. Astrocyte Verse allows for blinking further and more often while also readying weapons more quickly when exiting Blink. Young Ahamkara’s Spine is perhaps the best choice since it increases the duration of Tripmine Grenades along with their blast radius. Ability damage will also provide grenade energy.
