Conquer new worlds with the decisive thunderclap of the Xerxes' heavy rounds.

The Xerxes-C is an uncommon machine gun in Destiny.[1] This model has a lower fire rate and magazine, but offers impressive damage per hit, often more powerful than comparable Scout Rifles. Its low rate of fire makes the recoil very manageable, leading to more rounds hitting their mark.
