Another Xûr visit to the Destiny Tower went live the morning of Friday, February 5 with a set of Exotic gear the mysterious vendor has not frequently sold. PlayStation and Xbox players have a classic Exotic Primary Weapon to look forward to, along with some armored goodies.
Xûr can be found just outside of the Speaker’s building next to the railing overlooking the city this weekend. Turn left as soon as you spawn in the Tower and run straight to the north part of the social space. Here’s where you can find him on the Tower map.

For those wondering what to get, here are a few helpful hints.
The “SUROS Legacy” perk gives the weapon extra damage dealing for the bottom half of the magazine with a chance to return health on each kill. Meanwhile, the Year Two version of the Auto Rifle gives a choice between “Focused Fire” to make the weapon fire slower, but do more damage while aimed and “Spinning Up” to make it fire faster the long it is fired.
The random perks with the Immolation Fists offered by Xûr include the choice between “Rain Blows” and “Momentum Transfer” along with “Hand Cannon Loader” and “Fusion Rifle Loader.”
The pure 70 Intellect stat is solid for Destiny players focused on getting their Super recharged, but doesn’t synergize well with these gauntlets’ intrinsic perk. Sunbreaker Titans may want to re-roll using Glass Needles to get a good Strength stat plus their preferred choice of weapon reload speed bonus.
Radiant Dance Machines
The 61 Intellect and 55 Strength stat roll for these boots is excellent. The ability to carry more Machine Gun Ammo is always welcome. Destiny players will need to decide if its worth re-rolling if they don’t care for the Fusion Rifle ammo option.
The optional perks on The Stag are a choice between the “Ashes to Asset” for bonus Super energy from grenade kills against minions and “Second Thoughts” for bonus Super energy from Special Weapon kills on minions. There is also “Better Already” to instantly start shield recovery after Orb pickups.
Like the other two pieces, the 48 Discipline / 48 Strength stat split on this helmet is solid and shouldn’t require a re-roll unless there are other perks you prefer.
