Items from Xurs have a power level similar to that of your character.

Tractor Cannon

Tractor Cannon is an Exotic shotgun. Its Exotic feature, Repulsor Force, allows the weapon to generate powerful pulses that disorient enemies from the user, weaken their abilities, and leave them vulnerable to external damage. Its secondary feature, The Scientific Method, boosts the weapon's stats temporarily.

Tractor Cannon is extremely powerful in both PvP and PvE. It can either immediately knock Guardians out of their Super or help your Fireteam melt a boss. Its also great for soloing difficult content if you are into it.

Lucky Pants

Lucky Pants fluctuate depending on how good hand cannons are. Each hit increases damage. The perk also increases your handling, ready, and stow speed for hand cannons.

This week's Xurs roll comes with 67 total statistics.


Peacekeepers are for the submachine gun enthusiast. Its Exotic perk, Mecha Holster, will reload submachine guns when you store them, and allow you to ready them immediately. This is OK at best. If you like submachine guns and want to carry one or two around the house, these are the pants for you.

This week's Xurs roll comes with 58 total statistics.

Aeon Soul

Aeon Soul is a cross between two Warlock gauntlets from Curse of Osiris. These Exotics have recently been reworked and work well with Aeon Safe for Titans and Aeon Swift for Hunters. The Aeon Soul does not have an Exotic benefit. Players may add powerful, unique mods that help them and their allies.

These mods are free and come in an additional mod slot. They'll provide bonuses like faster reloading for yourself when you get precision strikes. They'll also reward your allies with bonuses, such as giving bonus energy when you stun a Champion.

This week's Xurs roll includes 62 total stats.

Exotic Cipher quest

Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher in the Tower of the Monuments to Lost Light. These items and other currencies will enable you to acquire Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.

Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches this week. By finishing the quest, youll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you want.
