Update: Just as predicted, this week's Strike is the Will of Crota, featuring Omnigul. Get on it, Guardians.
The long-running battle between the developers at Bungie and Reddit’s Megamanexe4 rages on this week in Destiny. After Bungie proved they could alter Xur’s stock in real-time by preventing players from peeking at his wares via data-mining, Megaman has taken to it again to check out next week’s Nightfall and Iron Banner gear.
Taking to Reddit, Megaman carefully noted that this weekend’s Xur is, in fact, not the original Xur that was supposed to show up this week in Destiny. According to him, Xur wasn’t originally supposed to sell Read Death, a gun that players are incredibly excited to get their hands on.
So instead of leaking Xur’s curios for next weekend, Megaman has provided next week’s Nightfall and Weekly Heroic, as well as the Iron Banner gear available from the 17th onwards, which you can see below.
Unless Bungie changes the rotation last-minute, next week’s Nightfall and Weekly Heroic Strike features everyone’s favourite Wizard, Omnigul.
The Nightfall will feature Epic, Nightfall, Lightswitch, Angry, and Arc burn. Dealing with Lightswitch and Arc burn, considering how many Thrall there are, and the fact that pretty much every enemy in the Strike deals Arc damage, will be tough this week.
The Weekly Heroic, meanwhile, features Heroic and Arc burn, which will be easier to deal with after removing the other buffs (especially Lightswitch).
Moving on to the Iron Banner gear, it looks as if players are in for a treat next week with Lord Saladin selling a mix of new weapons and rank 3 & 4 legendary gear with bonuses such as being able to carry more ammo for auto and fusion rifles. Below is a slideshow of all the upcoming Iron Banner items:
