In terms of leveling up Xur's Strange Favor Ranks fast, the best way to do that is to keep playing Dares of Eternity without switching to other activities. This mode includes a streak bonus, like all the other playlists.
For low to mid-tier content, Riskrunner is a great pick.
Osteo Striga is a Kinetic SMG; its ability to clear large groups of enemies quickly makes it a powerful PvE (player versus environment) weapon, and the tracking capability of the rounds it fires can be devastating to opposing Guardians in the Crucible (also known as PvP).
Its ability to shoot rockets that would then “splinter” into smaller, homing rockets made it one of the more unique items in its class during the early days of the game.

Is Thorn better than Ace of Spades?
Empowered Thorn has the potential to put out far more DPS than Ace and can be used with some exotics such as Necrotic Grips to synergize off one another, but Ace has more immediate "do damage to one target with one shot" damage making it a good all-rounder and more preferred for PvP situations.
The player must spend the Cipher at the Monument to Lost Lights before they can turn the quest in to Xûr and get another Cipher as a reward. Turning in the quest prevents the player from acquiring a new copy of Xenology until the following weekend.

Xur can sell The Last Word. Xur has begun selling "Legacy" engrams - these will decrypt into a year 1 exotic for that slot. They have a very high preference to exotics not currently in your collection. These typically cost 36 coins.
► Shayura's Wrath is arguably the most well-rounded SMG in the game with its off-the-charts stats and excellent perks. Not only can it excel in PvP due to its high zoom, but it can also pair well with any PvE Void 3.0 build using Golden Tricorn or Adrenaline Junkie.

Ghally is better in most situations. But in where we need damage and only damage, Sleeper is the pick.
Slain enemies from Gjallarhorn spawn additional Wolfpack Rounds, making it excellent for add-clear. For bossing, its two-round magazine and ability to buff friendly Legendary Rocket Launchers by giving them Wolfpack Rounds make this weapon incredibly strong for boss DPS.
Overall, there is a lot here for casual and hardcore fans of the Destiny franchise and beyond, but unless you play Destiny 2 on a weekly or daily basis, the 30th Anniversary Pack just isn't worth the price it's asking.
