The Queenbreaker is a new Exotic from Destiny 2: Forsakenand is a remake of Queenbreaker’s Bow Exotic from Destiny† It is an Arc linear fusion rifle with choice of two types of zooms. The Sniper Sights increase charging time, zoom and damage; the Battle Faces shorten charging time and increase handling. The exotic advantage is Wire Riflingwhich causes the bolts of the gun to blind targets.
The Queenbreaker is very powerful in any PvP environment. Even with the combat sights, it can quickly kill a Guardian in a single shot from afar. In PvE, this weapon is decent, but way out of the exotic heavy weapon food chain. You’ll need to pick up The Queenbreaker if you don’t already have it.
The Ophidia Spathe The exotic advantage of the brisket is scissor fingers, which allows hunters to throw two knives per charge. This exotic is pretty neat and knives have always been fun to use in Destiny. This piece is also quite unique, as it lets players hold two charges of their melee ability, while also giving them two charges immediately upon charging.
Coupled with the subclass’s unique abilities, you can essentially throw knives all the time. It’s a very fun style of play and well worth a try if you have a Hunter.
Xur’s role this week comes with 64 total stats.
ADC/0 Feedback Fence
The Titan exotics are the ACD/0 Feedback Fence† These gloves have the exotic advantage Fury conductors, allowing melee kills to build up energy. When hit by a melee attack, you release that energy in an explosion. Feedback Fence got an upgrade earlier this year, making these gloves quite useful in the Crucible. While there are plenty of other good Crucible options for Titans, don’t miss this one completely.
Xur’s role this week comes with 59 total stats.
Skull of the Dire Ahamkara
The Skull of Dire Ahamkara is the Warlock helmet on offer this week. It’s a pretty good exotic – though nerfed in year 3 – and can be devastating if used properly. His exotic advantage, True greatnesscauses you to take very little damage when casting Nova Bomb – and your Nova Bomb kills immediately give Super Energy.
If you can accurately place your Nova Bomb in a large group of enemies – in PvE or even PvP – you’ll regain quite a bit of super energy. If you totally like Voidwalker (especially with the new Void 3.0 changes), this is a great helmet.
Xur’s role this week comes with 61 total stats.
Exotic Number Quest
starting in Beyond the light, Xur has a new search for an exotic figure. The Exotic Cipher allows you to purchase old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. You’ll need these items and some other currencies to pick up Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.
This week, Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches. Completing the quest will earn you an exotic figure that you can use as you wish.
