UPDATE: XUR IS ON IO, IN THE GIANT'S SCAR
Destiny 2 might have launched in 2017 but the game shows no signs of slowing down, offering an MMORPG with all the excitement of a first-person shooter.
If you're new to the game, Xur is a character that sells exotic weapons and armour over the weekend. He appears at 5 pm GMT in a seemingly random location and offers rare gear in exchange for legendary shards that you can collect from dismantling legendary gear or completing activities.
We say random location, but he'll always be in the same spots you've always found him in - "Winding Cove" in the EDZ, "Giant's Scar" on IO, "The Rig" on Titan, on the Emperor's Barge on Nessus, or in the Hangar in the Tower.
Don't forget, he'll be gone after the game's weekly reset at 10 am on Tuesday, and then you'll have to wait for him to return on Friday again.
We won't know what he's offering for players until he appears, but we do know that he'll offer a variety of items. Xur's inventory always includes one exotic weapon, three exotic armour pieces (one per class), and an isochronal engram that guarantees a drop of a random exotic from Year One or Year Two - and it's always something the player doesn't have, which makes it ideal for finishing collections.
We'll be updating this piece once we know where the tentacle-faced hoodlum is, and what he's offering for Guardians.
