Once you're able to locate Xur, here's a quick recap of what he's selling.

Vigilance Wing [Primary Pulse Rifle - 29 Legendary Shards]: This Pulse Rifle is best defined by its Harsh Truth perk, which includes a five-round burst. When a nearby ally is killed, you gain health regeneration and movement speed. This makes the gun especially helpful in Crucible. Updated recoil stats make Vigilance Wing slightly less potent since Forsaken, but it still shreds in PvP.

Orpheus Rig [Hunter Leg Armor - 23 Legendary Shards]: Hunters have been asking for it for weeks, and now it's finally here. Orpheus Rig features the Uncanny Arrows perk, which offers Ability Energy for each enemy tethered by Shadowshot anchors. This might be the best tether-based Exotic in all of Destiny 2. It sets up a practically endless string of Supers.

Hallowfire Heart [Titan Chest Armor - 23 Legendary Shards]: Depending on your roll, this armor might be the secret weapon of Xur's inventory this week. Possible rolls include Unflinching perks for all weapon classes, which reduce flinch while aiming. Generally speaking, Xur's setups are probably better than the standard version.

Verity's Brow [Warlock Helmet - 23 Legendary Shards]: This neat helmet comes with the Fourth Magic perk that boosts grenade recharge for you and your allies after energy-weapon kills. Especially if your character is in an Arc subclass, it ensures you'll have projectiles to throw for as long as you need them. Combined with any high-damage weapon, this headpiece is a can't miss.

Five of Swords: This is a Nightfall Challenge Card that can raise or lower the Power handicap to fit your needs. Raising the handicap increases your score multiplier.

There's nothing particularly unique about this particular Xur inventory beyond Verity's Brow, but that doesn't mean it's not a good setup. Especially with its updated rolls, Orpheus Rig remains as desirable as ever. It also doesn't hurt that Xur's rolls for Hallowfire Heart are so darn effective. Both pieces of gear have become mainstays in all aspects of Destiny 2, which makes them a good pickup if they're not already part of your arsenal. Today's inventory is full of familiar faces, but at least they're good ones.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Xur's location and inventory are the same on all platforms.
