The Two-Tailed Fox is an Exotic rocket launcher that was released in the Forsaken expansion. Its primary feature, Twintails, allows it to launch two rockets instead of one both of which follow targets. Its secondary feature is Play With Your Prey, which allows one rocket to deal burning Solar damage while the other to suppress enemies with Void damage.
Two-Tailed Fox is a unique, fun, and enjoyable to use product, but its quality varies greatly depending on how good launchers you have in a given season. And even then, there are usually better choices. Get your Two-Tailed Fox from Xur this week.
Shards of Galanor
Following some serious tweaks, the Shards of Galanor gauntlets are a shadow of what they once were. Sharp Edges is a great way to earn Extra Energy based on how many blades you hit with the Blade Barrage ability. The Super refund is capped, so youll never get the whole thing back.
This week, Xurs roll comes with 63 total statistics.
The main advantage of Sunfire Furnace is that it increases your abilities' recharge rate when Hammer of Sol is charged. This exotic force you to play Sunbreaker, which is fantastic since it's probably the Titan class you're using thanks to Hammer Strike.
It takes some getting used to to realize that Hallowfire Heart will only be beneficial to you when you reserve your Super. However, this is one of our favorite Titan exotics, and can be quite powerful if you learn to use it correctly.
This week's Xurs roll brings 65 total statistics.
Destiny 2's Guide
Transversive Steps are the Warlocks' speedy boots, and they're a great catch-all Exotic weapon. Strange Protractor increases your sprint speed and automatically reloads your energy weapons in Destiny 2. Make sure to pick them up if you don't have them yet.
This week's Xurs roll includes 59 total statistics.
Exotic Cipher quest
Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher. Exotic Cipher allows you to purchase old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. These items and other currencies are required to acquire Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.
Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches this week. Once you complete the quest, you'll earn an Exotic Cipher to use whenever you want.
