The Taikonaut

The helmets worn by the first Chinese lunar colonists of the Golden Age.


Xur Update March 2015

Titans get the best bang for their buck this week. The Taikonaut comes with some pretty epic stats that up their game across the board. Well, if you are a rocket launcher enthusiast, anyway. Its key perk grants target tracking for every launcher in the game, and the ability to keep your HUD visible while scoped. To round it out, more ammo will drop for heavy weapons. Along with these three, you will gain bonus super energy on grenade kills, along with bonus melee energy on orb pickups.
