Xur is returning to a familiar location this week, bringing rather useful exotics all around, no exceptions.

Destiny 2 players can find Xur in Winding Cove in EDZ. To get to his exact location, go to the aforementioned waypoint, pop your Sparrow and head westward. When you reach the fork in the road that we pictured below, turn right and follow the road until you reach a crashed Fallen ship. At that point, you have two ways to reach the merchant, also pictured below.

The Wardcliff Coil is the weapon we're getting this week. If you're not running an Exotic in Kinetic or Energy slot, this is easily the best Exotic PvP weapon to have in Heavy, next to Black Talon. It will fire off a pile of homing projectiles that can kill an entire team so make sure you try this out in Control, where Guardians tend to clump up when capturing an objective.

Hunters are getting Graviton Forfeit which extends invisibility and grants increased melee energy gain while you're invisible. The latter part isn't that useful since Gambler's Dodge is superior in that aspect but Void Hunters can benefit from those extra few seconds of invisibility when crossing open areas, reducing the chance of getting popped by a sniper.

Speaking of sniper-blocking, Citan's Ramparts are the best tool for that. These gauntlets will make a Titan's Barrier let bullets go through the friendly side. You can easily counter a lane lock that was caused by an enemy sniper this way. Bring a 120 RPM HC, Scout Rifle or Pulse Rifle for best results.

Verity's Brow is fantastic in PvE under certain circumstances. It will cause Energy weapon kills to grant you a buff that:

  1. Provides grenade energy
  2. Increases grenade damage
  3. Increases allies' grenade energy generation

In short, everyone on your fireteam will be spamming 'nades all over the place. Just bring an Energy weapon that uses primary ammo so you can keep powering the buff without running out of bullets.
