Destiny 2 Xur Weapons: Weekly rotation and Tier list

by | May 6, 2022 | Weapons

Xûr, Destiny 2’s favorite vendor is taking an increasingly important role in the game. On top of offering his usual selection of Exotic weapons and armor, he now also offers several Legendary weapons and Exotic random rolls, just like the Gunsmith.

His weapons and rolls are completely random, and every now and then, he happens to sell some of the best weapons in the entire game. This guide will keep you up to date with every Exotic random roll and Legendary weapon he has for sale every weekend.

Xûr is in the EDZ this week: May 6, 2022

Every week, Xûr becomes available from Friday to Tuesday:

  • Xûr appeared on Friday, April 22, at 10 am PDT
  • Xûr will leave on Tuesday, April 26, at 10 am PDT

This weekend, Xûr can be found on the EDZ at the Winding Cove:

As a reminder, these are the different Tier levels used for our rankings:

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapon types.
  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.
  • B Tier – Average: Decent choices that can be lethal in the hands of a skilled player.
  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.
  • D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these don’t have much to offer.

But beware that those are general rankings and not specific rankings for the rolls offered by Xûr this week!

Legendary weapons cost:

  • 50 Legendary Shards
  • 1,000 Glimmer and

Worthy Legendary rolls

According to Light.gg’s roll recommendations, this week’s legendary offering from Xûr are average at best.

The only weapon potentially worth your time is:

  • False Promises: With Overflow and Rampage, this roll is one of the best there is for this weapon. Unfortunately, the entire archetype is lacking and just can’t compete with the strongest archetypes out there.
