It’s Friday, and that means Xur has arrived back in the Tower to peddle some exotic wares. Praise be to Xur, I got what I was hoping for for the second week in a row. Not going to waste anytime with today’s update, so let’s get to it.
Xur’s exotics are up now, the daily bounties directly below it.
|No Backup Plan
||Titan Gauntlets – No ammo? No problem.||13 SC|
| Young Ahamkara’s Spin
||Hunter Gauntlets – Give me your arm, oh bearer mine. Let me help you fill the world with teeth.||13 SC|
||Warlock Chest – “YOU WILL DREAM OF TEETH AND NOTHING ELSE” – scratched behind a buckle||13 SC|
||Scout Rifle – Select application: Ballistic engagement. Entrenching tool. Avionics trawl. Troll smasher.||23 SC|
|Exotic Engram||Helmet Exotic Engram – Random exotic helmet for a random class.||23 MoL|
Xur can be found in the down the stairs under the Shipwright in the far back past the little lounge. He’s been there before, but it’s been a while. I went in not really caring what he brought, because I was hoping for and got The Last Word last week, but I was still hoping for the Mida Multi-Tool because it was an exotic I didn’t have. Xur delivered my weapon wish for the second week in a row.
|BOUNTY||DESCRIPTION||+ REP / + EXP|
|Walking Tall||Complete any Strike without dying.||+100 / +5,000|
|Knuckleduster||Melee Kill 30 enemies without dying.||+50 / +2,500|
|Overcharge||Kill 2 enemies at once with a Fusion Rifle, 20 times.||+100 / +5,000|
|Target: Zydron, Gate Lord||Defeat Zydron in the “Eye of a Gate Lord” mission on Venus with the Heroic modifier active.||+100 / +5,000|

||Complete 6 Patrol missions on Venus.||+50 / +2,500|
One of those days where they don’t want you to combine more than two bounties (well technically three if you want to make Overcharge far more difficult and time consuming than it needs to be). Oh well, they’re all easy to complete pretty quickly.

The Crucible playlist for today is Control.
Daily Heroic Mission: The Warmind
Location: Old Russia, Earth
- Break the House of Devils’ grasp on the Cosmodrome and secure a vital link to the Golden Age.
- HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
- LIGHTSWITCH – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.
- Cryptarch Engram
- Vanguard Marks +5
- +4800 XP (lvl 20) l +6000 XP (lvl 24) l +7500 XP (lvl 28)
- Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)
This is a really quick and easy mission, BUT stay on guard as it is loaded with stealth vandals (including one who jumps down from the ceiling) and that could be an instant death if they melee you. The vandals are really the only thing you have to worry about, but you don’t want anything meleeing you. Keep distance between yourself and enemies at all times.
For the final part with the servitors, it’s best to have Ice Breaker or a good rocket launcher with you to take them down fairly quickly.
That’s all for today Guardians. Remember, no Destiny Daily on the weekend, so I’ll see you again Monday morning. If you bought anything from Xur today, let us know in the comments. If you have the MIDA Multi-Tool already, what do you think about it? I’m not the biggest fan of scout rifles, but I’ve been wanting this one for a while and it helps to complete my exotic weapon collection. Look forward to trying it out. Later Guardians!
