With the winter solstice over and ready for another year, Bungie has been preparing for a very busy August. Later this month, the new season will debut alongside the highly anticipated Arc subclass rework, but for many, most of the excitement is centered on the upcoming Showcase. Bungie has confirmed a lot of surprises to see the Lightfall expansion, and which team will be returning.
Next season also brings some changes, the Iron Banner. At the same time the Rift moved out, Bungie announced that it would be replaced by a new Crucible mode. Eruption is a twist on Destiny’s team deathmatch style mode, Clash. Continuing the streak increases abilities and career regeneration, and higher streaks provide more bonuses. However, on 5 kills in a row, the player is in a state of readiness and needs to keep killing kills to avoid a countdown when they explode while being hunted by another team.
Now, the weekend merchant Xur is back Destiny 2. Follow this guide for his latest weekend location, news about his Strange Cipher quest, and a recap of all the Strange and Legendary gear he’s bringing on the weekend of August 5, 2022.
where is hul?
this weekend, Destiny 2 Players can find Xur overlooking Winding Cove on the EDZ.
Quickly head to the Winding Bay area, then immediately head to the rear where the Fallen usually patrols. Climb back to the cliff here to find Xur standing on a ledge not far from the crashed ship.
Class Armor and Strange Code
Xur’s character continues to offer the usual weekly quests, exotic and legendary gear. These quests are required not only to purchase a second Fated Sigil, but also to acquire traditional exotic gear from the tower kiosk. Players can earn new passwords by completing strikes and winning crucibles or opening matches. Bonus points for playing with clan mates or completing more challenging activities.
Xur continues to sell more gear beyond his usual content. In addition to his normal exotic gear, Xur now sells Legendary weapons and armor in exchange for Legendary Shards and Shimmer.
Aeon Soul – Warlock Gauntlets
Originally considered the worst exotics in the game, Bungie overhauled the scenes to make them more viable. While they’re still not top-tier gear, they’re more useful than before, and even valuable in difficult activities like Nightfall.
This armor now has specific Aeon mods that can be equipped instead of unique perks. The Force Cult applies damage dealers to temporarily increase the player’s reload speed and weapon swap speed after a quick precision hit. Taking down a hero or boss also grants grenades and melee energy to nearby Fireteam members. Yuan Qi Zong gives the player professional energy when teammates die, and gains all professional energy after resurrection. Allies receive a burst of healing when a nearby player casts a Super. Finally, the Gate of Insight has a chance to drop an energy orb after being shot down by a precision weapon. When using finishing moves on elite enemies, special ammo will be dropped. Using finishing moves on bosses or mini-bosses will drop heavy ammo.
Arc intensification. Statistics:
- Mobility +9
- Toughness +9
- Recovery +16
- Discipline +2
- Intelligence +6
Lucky Pants – Hunter Leggings
Lucky Pants are back on shelves this week, and thanks to some changes in Season 15, there’s been an increase in the use of this exotic item. Its inherent privilege, illegally modified holster, hits with precision.Also, the hand cannons are quicker to prepare and have increased accuracy after switching to them, making these very useful for all players hand cannon Destiny 2 Have.
This week’s stat distribution is interesting because of its extreme mobility and ultra-low resilience and resilience, two stats that are valued by many players. However, the roll total is 67, so they might be worth picking up and using the mod to counteract the resilience and recovery flaws.
Void reinforcement. Statistics:
- Mobility +28
- Toughness +3
- Recovery +2
- Discipline +16
- Intelligence +6
Peacekeepers – Titan Leggings
It’s been a while, but peacekeepers have restocked Titan players. Unfortunately, these exotics are a hit or miss for players because they only really benefit one specific playstyle. Its intrinsic perk is called the Mecha Holster, which reloads a stowed submachine gun. It allows players to have them ready in no time, improves the SMG’s processing power, and increases mobility when in use.
Regardless, this week’s votes weren’t great, with a total of 58 points, which is unusually low for Xur exotics. That’s why players can safely skip them.
Solar power boost. Statistics:
- Mobility +3
- Toughness +3
- Recovery +24
- Discipline +9
- Intelligence +13
While it might be classified as a shotgun, the Tractor Cannon is very good at hitting and punching enemies due to its special abilities. The Tractor Cannon’s unique strength is called Repulsor Force, and it sounds like it makes the gun make a powerful blast that not only pushes enemies away, but also suppresses them and leaves them vulnerable, especially Void damage. Not only that, but by hurting enemies, the weapon temporarily increases speed and handling.
Affectionately referred to by the community as “Boop Cannon,” players have long raved about the weapon, especially in PvP-style modes like Gambit and Crucible. With a larger-than-normal hitbox, the ability to blast opponents off the stage and pin them down, it’s still a popular option and worth checking out.
