Destiny 2 – Xur's Gear Rewards And Location For The Weekend Of November 10

Everybody's working for the weekend – and the exotic gear that Destiny 2's mysterious merchant Xur brings for those three days. This time around Xur is set up near the Watcher's Grave fast travel point on Nessus. In Destiny 2, Bungie was kind enough to include his location on the map, so you should have no trouble finding him.

This weekend Xur is selling the Prospector exotic grenade launcher, which, like most grenade launchers in Destiny 2, shouldn't be your first choice. Xur also has some exotic helmets available for each class. For Hunters he has Foetracer, a must have for PvP. For Titan's there's An Insurmountable Skullfort, a great choice for Striker Titans who enjoy an all-out brawl. For Warlock's there's the Eye of Another World, a solid choice if you haven't already picked it up during the campaign.

Xur is only offering this gear for the next three days, so make sure to swing on by Nessus this weekend to pick up some exotic goodies. You can find images for each piece of gear below.

Little Coders Can Test Their Skills In Snoopy Snow Brawl

If your kids are interested in learning more about programming but you aren't sure where to start with some of the fundamentals, codeSpark Academy has released a free-to-play Snoopy game that might be what you're looking for. They won't be able to create their own games from scratch, but Snoopy Snow Brawl does show kids how to break down a problem step by step, in the form of a friendly snowball fight.

In this Web-based game, players click on Woodstock and friends and then prompt them to take individual steps to win the competition. It starts out with simple throws at stationary targets, but it eventually becomes more complex to incorporate movement, jumping, item gathering, and more. Once you get the basics down, you can take on your friends, too.

If you're interested in learning more about coding logic, but are a little too old for all this Snoopy business, take a look at Jeff Marchiafava's roundup of four fun coding games.

Destiny 2 Getting Xbox One X And PS4 Pro Enhancements, Plus Double XP

In a blog post today, Bungie shared a host of news about Destiny 2, including news about console enhancements and a double XP weekend coming in mid-November.

Both consoles are getting HDR lighting support in their higher fidelity patches. For the PlayStation 4 Pro version, Destiny 2 will run in adaptive 4K, while the Xbox One X version runs in a more consistent 4K. There's no word on framerate changes for the higher spec console versions, but Bungie has said 60FPS is unlikely for the console versions.

Additionally, Bungie is holding what they call a "Clarion Call," wherein all players who are in a clan will received Double XP during the weekend of November 17, starting at 10 PDT and ending at the same time on November 20. Bungie assures single-player Destiny fans that some future Clarion Calls will not require joining a clan.

New Pictures Released For PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' New Desert Map

PlayerUnknown himself, Brian Greene, has revealed more screenshots of one of the two maps currently in development for Battlegrounds, the desert.

The work in progress shots show a marked difference from the last time the desert level was shown, tweaking the lighting and effects to look a lot less flat and more lived-in. The only other detail we have about the map is the size, 8x8 kilometers, which is the same size as the current Battlegrounds map.

The second map in development is set in the Adriatic, though nothing has been seen from it yet. The desert map is likely to be the first released considering its progress, but no date has been given for it yet. Check the tweet below to see all the pictures of the desert map.
