Exotic vendor Xur has returned in Destiny 2 and he may be carrying the most valuable weapon since Gjallarhorn in Destiny 1’s days. You can find Xur in the European Dead Zone where he will remain until the weekly reset on December 12th.
This week, Xur is carrying the Prometheus Lens trace rifle. Yes, the very same trace rifle that’s broken in Crucible. It can be yours for 29 Legendary Shards and is at 305 Power level. Given how the weapon won’t be fixed till the next update, we suggest grabbing one now and wrecking shop in Crucible. Note that you don’t have to have Curse of Osiris to purchase and use the weapon.
Other items include the Dragon’s Shadow (Hunter chest), Nezarec’s Sin (Warlock helm) and Mk.44 Stand Aside (Titan boots), all available for 23 Legendary Shards and at 305 Power level. Nezarec’s Sin is probably one of the best as Void damage kills will increase your ability recharge rate. Combine this with Void grenade and weapon kills (with Devour also helping with energy regen) and you have a pretty nice little set-up.
