Xur’s pick of the week is an Exotic shotgun. Worth your Coins?


Xur brought a weapon this weekend with the usual haul. This one is an Exotic shotgun called Invective, which has seen some updates from Year 2.

In short: it’s not great, and our Destiny expert Alex isn’t too hot on it. The main perk for Invective lets it to generate its own ammo, which works great in PvP, especially with the recent balance changes.

One good way to utilise this is to equip it, have it generate Special Ammo, then switch to another Special weapon you actually want to use. It also does Solar damage, which works great in activities where Solar burn is active.

Previously, you could get Invective only from Exotic bounties, so it’s easier to get now more than ever, even if just for the collection.
