Xur’s arrival in Destiny 2 does not generate fairly the identical stage of pleasure because it used to, now that we’re nearing the top of the sport’s second yr. Most gamers who login to Destiny repeatedly have already got most or all of the Exotic weapons and armor the weekend vendor carries–which are these from Destiny 2 Year One and the Forsaken growth. Anything newer is not out there, which suggests for those who’ve been enjoying Destiny for a very long time, there’s often no purpose to hassle monitoring Xur down.
Sometimes, although, Xur’s wares are price trying out. While Exotic weapons in Destiny 2 at all times have the identical perks, Exotic armor will get random perks–which implies that Xur’s model of an Exotic helmet or pair of trainers is likely to be barely totally different from the one you have already got. This week, Xur confirmed up within the Tower in Destiny 2 with an incredible position on an Exotic piece of armor, and for those who play Titan, it is best to choose it up.
Head to the Tower’s Hangar to search out Xur, who’s positioned on a catwalk on the north finish. You’re going to wish to choose up the Exotic helmet he is providing referred to as One-Eyed Mask. This Exotic is nice for the Crucible: its particular perk marks enemies who injury you, and for those who observe them down and get your revenge, you are granted a injury enhance and an overshield. That makes One-Eyed Mask a favourite in Destiny 2’s aggressive modes by itself, however Xur’s model has one other nice perk: Enhanced Hand Cannon Targeting.
Targeting buffs in Destiny 2 make weapons extra correct, boosting their Target Acquisition stat–which principally helps you land headshots. The Enhanced model of these perks are fairly uncommon, so to get one on an Exotic helmet is nice. The Hand Cannon model, although, might be the very best for Crucible. Most of the very best PvP weapons in Destiny 2 are hand cannons, like Not Forgotten and Luna’s Howl.
This mixture of perks makes One-Eyed Mask a reasonably phenomenal discover, particularly for those who’re making ready to go into the Crucible to grind Destiny 2’s present seasonal occasion, the Solstice of Heroes. The Mask will run you 23 Legendary shards, so hurry over and choose it up–you solely have till the weekly reset on Tuesday, August 6, to make your buy.
