Xur’s inventory caps out at 1050.

Merciless

There was a time when the Merciless fusion rifle was one of the best Exotics in Destiny 2. Its exotic perk, Conserve Momentum, causes it to charge its fusion bursts faster for every non-lethal hit you strike. This still makes killing bosses very fast, but it’s since been outclassed by quite a few other weapons.

But Merciless can still be really fun to use in all kinds of content, especially the old-school stuff. It’s not any less powerful than it was in year one — in fact, it’s more so since it’s in your energy slot now — but there are plenty of better weapons to choose from. If you have any interest in Nightfalls or the Leviathan raid, Merciless is still a must own.

Gemini Jester

Gemini Jester is one of the Exotics added in Curse of Osiris. Its main exotic perk is Misdirection. If you dodge near an enemy, you’ll disorient them, removing their radar if they’re a human player. This is a decent PvP exotic if you’re sick of running the classics. Just beware that you need to be close to be effective.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 65 total stats.

Peregrine Greaves

Peregrine Greaves is a great Exotic for Titans who love to smash their knees into enemies at full speed. Its Exotic perk is Peregrine Strike, which causes all shoulder charge abilities to deal bonus damage if activated mid-air. The bonus damage from Peregrine Strike is no joke, and can take down Major enemies pretty easily. This is a great Titan Exotic that’s also really fun to use. If you ever play Titan, pick this up.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 64 total stats.

Nezarec’s Sin

Nezarec’s Sin isn’t a particularly exciting Warlock helmet, but it’s very good. The main perk is Abyssal Extractors, which causes Void damage kills to recharge your ability energy. Boring but effective. This includes Void damage from your subclass and from your energy or power weapons. If you play Voidwalker ever or have a Void weapon that you use all the time, pick up this great helmet.
