Destiny 2 players can visit Xur the Exotic merchant on Io this weekend. He'll be around until 9am PST / 12pm EST / 5pm BST on Tuesday, January 22. To reach Xur, head to the east side of the Tower and go up the scaffolding behind the Dead Orbit leader.
Here's everything Xur is selling this weekend:
Xur Exotic inventory for Jan 18 - 22:
- Weapon: Vigilance Wing
- Hunter Exotic: Orpheus Rig
- Titan Exotic: Hallowfire Heart
- Warlock Exotic: Verity's Brow
The grenade energy provided by Verity's Brow has always been underwhelming, and the strong four-burst pulse rifles in Forsaken and Black Armory have effectively obviated Vigilance Wing, so both of those are pretty much a pass. That said, Xur's inventory this weekend is still a powerhouse thanks to Orpheus Rig and Hallowfire.
Even after its nerf, Orpheus Rig is an absolute machine in PvE. It allows Nightstalker Hunters to continually chain tethers together in activities with high mob density like Gambit, raids, and… basically everything else. There's really never a bad time to use Orpheus Rig, honestly, which is one of its biggest strengths. Tether isn't good against bosses, but even then Orpheus Rig is good for clearing out the dudes around bosses.
Hallowfire Heart is basically the total opposite of Orpheus Rig: it boosts your melee and grenade recharge rates dramatically while your super is charged, so you won't be supering very often while using this Exotic. Even so, it's incredibly potent in most activities. Near-constant access to your grenade and melee abilities more than makes up for the super restriction, plus you can still pop your super when you need it most since Hallowfire Heart provides some cooldown reduction even when your super isn't charged. It's a simple, flexible Exotic that most Sunbreaker Titans rarely take off.
