Xur is back for the first Halloween weekend of 2021 and he's bringing a PvP sniper rifle along with some of the fan-favourite Exotic armour.
Destiny 2 players can find Xur in the Tower hangar this week. If you don't know the location, put a waypoint on Amanda Holliday, reach her and then turn left. Go to the landing pad and you'll spot Xur on the catwalks to the left.
In the way of Exotics, Xur is selling:
- Transversive Steps
All three Exotic pieces have desirable intrinsic perks but the stat rolls, though high, are pretty terribly distributed. Stompies have low Mobility and Recovery, Transversive Steps have low Recovery and Intellect while only Synthoceps have a somewhat decent spread.
Legendaries in Xur's inventory are:
- Dire Promise
- Seventh Seraph VY-7
- Arsenic Bite 4-B
- Long Shadow
- Hollow Words
- Outrageous Fortune
- Royal Entry
- Woven Firesmith armour
Long Shadow has a fantastic PvP roll. This is one of the rare sniper rifles that have a short zoom and Snapshot Sights that wasn't a victim of sunsetting. If you're having trouble landing headshots with snipers, you might want to give this one a go.
Royal Entry has Auto-Loading Holster so if you're looking for a rocket launcher that can be swapped in and out so it auto-reloads, it might be worth picking up.
Hunters are getting pretty good rolls on head and leg pieces, with the legs being the regular kind of good with a proper spread across key stats while the helmet has 25 Recovery and 23 Intellect.
Warlocks have an amazing chest piece waiting for them at Xur, with 22 Recovery, 11 Discipline and 19 Intellect. Helmet and boots also have pretty good rolls so give them a round of consideration as well.
Titans can look forward to nothing that special but chest and head pieces have a decent stat total and spread.
