Xur is back for another weekend of Exotic goodies but the offerings might be underwhelming for most Destiny 2 player groups other than newcomers.
Xur location, August 6, 2021
Destiny 2 players can find Xur in Watcher's Grave, Nessus this week. If you're not sure about the exact location, just spawn on the aforementioned landing zone and he will be straight ahead of you, on the giant tree, as seen in the picture below.
Xur items, August 6, 2021
- Skyburner's Oath
- Eye of Another World
- Ophidia Spathe
- Severance Enclosure
Skyburner's Oath is not a particularly useful Exotic but it can be interesting in some 6v6 PvP modes as you can strafe at full speed while hip-firing homing projectiles on the enemy. They also cause a lot of flinch so this weapon may be good for countering 120 RPM HCs in some situations.
Eye of Another world is probably the most useful among the Exotic armour pieces this week as it is just good all around, regardless of which subclass you play. Better cooldowns on abilities are always welcome and the tracking component is useful in PvP. The only bad part is the subpar roll with low Recovery and medium Intellect.
Ophidia Spathe has probably the best roll of the three armour pieces this week, with high Mobility and Recovery. That said, it's a niche item since it simply gives another knife charge. Both charges are refreshed with Gambler's dodge so it's a good combo if you are looking to score a bunch of one-hit kills with bottom tree Gunslinger.
Severance Enclosure is not among the most popular Titan Exotics and the roll on this one is not particularly good. I would recommend picking it up to remove it from the Exotic Engram pool, provided, you didn't already unlock everything in it.
