Xur is back with a rather good round of offering for all classes and the weapon. To top it off, he didn't move from the last week and you can find him on the Guardians' doorstep.
Xur location, April 30, 2021
You can find Xur in Tower Hangar. For those not familiar with the location, just pop a waypoint on Amanda Holiday, spawn in The Courtyard and follow it until you reach her. Turn left and go towards the landing pad until you see catwalks on the left. He will be on one of them, just like in the picture.
What is Xur selling this week?
- Graviton Forfeit
- Mk. 44 Stand Asides
- Astrocyte Verse
Tips for Xur's Exotics of the week
Arbalest is easily one of the best Exotics to have in your collection. It's a Linear Fusion Rifle that uses Special Ammo, not Heavy. Even after the nerfs, it's easy to one-shot players due to strong aim assist and it's fantastic for Match Game activities since it has a huge damage multiplier against all shields.
Graviton Forfeit is helpful when you're trying to cheese your way through encounters you don't want to fight thanks to the extended stealth duration. It's even good in some scenarios where you use Marksman's Dodge as stealth will be buffing your melee recharge anyway. It's also invaluable when you're invading and sneaking up on unsuspecting Guardians in Gambit.
Mk. 44 Stand Asides are usually outclassed by Dunemarchers in PvP but the former can help you out with surviving shotgun blasts that are not perfectly placed. The overshield won't always save you but it can certainly help at times. The melee recharge bonus is nothing to scoff at either - landing a shoulder charge will get you back 50 per cent of the melee energy.
Astrocyte Verse is the close-range Warlock's best friend. It will let you zip around the map while using a Void subclass, which is extremely useful when dealing with snipers that lock lanes down. Shotgunning with this helm can be extremely fun, if you are proficient enough to confuse the enemies and not yourself.
