Bungie spawned Xur for the upcoming weekend and this time he can be found on Nessus. There is a Fusion Rifle, Hunter gauntlets and two sets of boots to be had.
Xur is back and this time he can be found on the golden barge on Nessus. Watcher's Grave is the best spawn location if you are visiting the tentacle-y purveyor of Exotic goods. The moment you spawn, the floating golden barge should be in your field of view so just grab your sparrow, get to a high point, dismount and double jump into the open cargo hold.
Go up through the ship and Xur will be on the top deck, offering:
- , a Fusion Rifle with the Unplanned Reprieve intrinsic perk
- (Warlock) with Strange Protractor perk
- (Titan) with Linear Actuators
- (Hunter) with Sharp Edges
This lineup of items is mostly good for PvE. Telesto can decimate waves of enemies due to Unplanned Reprieve's explosive charges that get planted on the targets, Dunemarchers increase sprint speed and meleeing while charged up sends out chain lightning for a similar effect.
Shards of Galanor can be abused with Gambler's Dodge and Knife Trick to create a loop of quickly recharging abilities which results in really quick Super recharge. This is useful in PvE only since you can't reliably stay close enough to enemies in PvP to trigger melee recharge on Gambler's Dodge.
Transversive Steps are great for PvP though. Strange Protractor increases sprint speed, reloads currently equipped weapon while sprinting and increases slide distance. That last bit is not mentioned in the description but coupled with sprint speed increase, it makes this Exotic the perfect choice for shotgun wielders.
