Destiny: Xur weapons, gear and location, December 23 - 25. Plan C!

From a certain angle Destiny's Xur looks a bit like Santa. If you really squint and pretend those wispy void tentacles are a beard. He's not much into Christmas though, as the quantum state flux of unopened presents gives him a headache. Cayde-6 tried to give him a card once. It didn't go well. 

Anyway, he does have a sack full of goodies to dish out and no one had to be nailed to anything to get them. So, what's Xur-mas brought us this week? 

  • Empyrean Bellicose (Titan helmet) - 13 Strange coins
  • Knucklehead Radar (Hunter helmet) - 13 Strange coins
  • The Ram - (Warlock helmet) - 13 Strange coins
  • Plan C (fusion rifle) - 29 Strange coins
  • Legacy Engram (helmet) - 29 strange coins

Empyrean Bellicose is a handy little helmet for Titans, giving the ability to hover in mid-air briefly while aiming. Admittedly not much use in PvE but a nice little trick to pull out in the Crucible. Similarly Hunters get a helping hand in PvP via Knucklehead Radar's ability to keep the in-game radar up while aiming. Void favouring Warlocks get a slightly vampy option on the other hand, with The Ram and its ability to steal life from any enemy you melee. 

Then there's Plan C. The fusion rifle that even non-fusion rifle people like. Mainly because of its ability to insta-fire. No more waiting for it to spool up and timing things right, just point and go. Throw in some arc damage and a decent hip fire accuracy and you've got a nice bit of kit to keep the darkness at bay. 

Xur will be around until 10 am UK / 2 am PT on Sunday. Don't forget to grab some Three of Coins and Exotic Shards while he's there. You'll only regret it later if you don't.
