Destiny 2's exotic vendor is back – here's what he's offering this week.


Don't forget, you only have a few hours to grab what Xur is offering, so be sure to head over to Io soon!

Destiny 2 Xur Location Confirmed - Where is Xur in Destiny 2 on October 16?

Exotic gear merchant, otherwise known as the 'Agent of the Nine' is live in the game on PS4, Xbox, PC and yes, even for those of you playing on Google Stadia.

He's ready and waiting to sell you some new exotic armour and a new exotic weapon in exchange for your legendary shards. This week, Xur's location is on 'IO' near 'GIANTS SCAR'. He's selling the stock listed below.

What is Xur Selling? - October 16 - July 20
• The Queenbreaker - Exotic Fusion Rifle - 29 Legendary Shards
• Lucky Raspberry - Exotic Hunter Chest Armour - 23 Legendary Shards
• Getaway Artist - Exotic Gauntlet Armour - 23 Legendary Shards
• Dunemarchers - Exotic Leg Armour - 23 Legendary Shard

Xur will also be selling the Five of Swords (Nightfall Challenge Card) and the isochronal engram which should give you a Year 1 or Year 2 Exotic that you don't already have.

If you haven't completed them yet, he's also selling the Invitations of the Nine.
There are 9 available in total (but only one can be purchased each week). For those who don't know, they offer short quests that were originally released in Season of the Drifter and involve defeating a strike boss and certain enemies.

Don't forget, Trials of Osiris has also returned for another weekend of sweaty PvP action.

Original Story Follows - 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. In fact, with the "Beyond Light" expansion on its way, the franchise has never been better.

Season of Arrivals is finally here and it's time to check in with Xur. After all, his inventory could make all the difference to your loadout heading into the new season.

Who Is Xur?

If you're new to the game, Xur is a character that sells exotic weapons and armour over the weekend. He appears at 6 pm BST 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.
