Head to Nessus for some Exotics
The weekly Exotic item merchant, Xur, hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny. In Destiny 2, he can appear all over the map, as well as inside the Tower. This week, you can find Xur on Nessus, north of the Watcher’s Grave landing zone, chillin’ on Calus’ barge.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- Cerberus 1, kinetic auto rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
- Celestial Nighthawk, Hunter helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Mask of the Quiet One, Titan helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Karnstein Armlets, Warlock gauntlets: 23 Legendary Shards
- Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards
Xur’s inventory caps out at 981 if you’re at 1000.
Cerberus 1 is a strange Exotic added in Forsaken. It’s an auto rifle that fires four shots at once, and behaves more like an automatic shotgun with more range and less damage. Its main Exotic perk is Four-Headed Dog, which causes it to fire one bullet from each of the gun’s four barrels simultaneously. Spread Shot Package makes the gun far more accurate when you aim down your sights.
The gun also has a Catalyst, found randomly by killing enemies in the world, that adds the ability to hold the reload button for an even tighter spread made for close-range combat.
Cerberus 1 is one of Destiny 2’s wackiest weapons. It’s very fun to use if you can get accustomed to its generally inaccurate nature. So while it isn’t what we’d call “good,” it’s definitely worth picking up.
Celestial Nighthawk is one of the best exotics in Destiny 2. Its main perk, Hawkeye Hack, causes Golden Gun to fire only one shot instead of three. However, this single shot does about six times the damage of the average Golden Gun. Players who love raiding or PvE in general should buy it. It’s also exceptional for boss damage.
Xur’s roll this week is Solar, and comes with 50 total stats.
