Destiny: Xur weapons, gear and location, September 9-11. Bad Juju!

Xur's back! Wafting his little wispy tentacles seductively in your face and being all 'my will is not my own'. Do you think he breaths like normal people? I always imagine those wafty strands are like ribbons on a vent. It must be like standing in front of gentle air conditioning set to 'warm and damp'. 

This week Destiny (opens in new tab)'s hooded one is skulking about the Tower, under those big doors opposite the Speaker, with helmets for everyone! (Although, if you're a Hunter we're, so, so sorry). And, for pulse rifle fans, Bad Juju is bringing some good luck to all your burst fire hopes and dreams. 

Here's the full list. 

  • An Insurmountable Skullfort (Titan helmet, 13 strange coins)
  • ATS/8 Arachnid (Hunter helmet, 13 strange coins)
  • Apotheosis Veil (Warlock helmet, 13 strange coins)
  • Bad Juju (pulse rifle, 23 strange coins)
  • Legacy engram (gauntlet, 29 strange coins)

Working on through the helmets first we've got the Titan's Insurmountable Skullfort, which is great if you like melee. It spawns you ready to punch and with an extra charge in the bank, as well as adding melee charge on orb pick ups and bonus super juice on melee kills. Plus it refills your health when you use Storm Fist. Basically, if you're a Titan who likes punching things you need this. 

Next up is the Hunter's ATS/8 Arachnid which isn't probably worth the effort as all it does it let you zoom when using Golden Gun. Hunters: best wait, there are more useful magic hats out there. 

That brings us on to the Warlock's Apotheosis Veil. This fills your health, melee and grenade energy when you activate your super. That makes it great for comebacks when things get a bit much, especially with Sunsinger's support focus or Stormcaller's crowd control powers. 

Which just leaves us with Bad Juju, a fast powerful pulse rifle that can be switched to full auto. It's accurate, especially with its bonus hipfire perk and has a perk called String of Curses that means it can reload itself, buff damage and charge your Super on every kill. It's worth it. 

As ever you've got until 10am GMT/2am PT on Sunday to make your choice and earn what you need. And don't forget to grab some Three of Coins while you're there. You're never not going to need them.
