UPDATE: XUR IS IN THE TOWER, BEHIND DEAD ORBIT
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.
Season of the Worthy is 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.
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.
Where is Xur?
Xur is at the Tower, behind where Dead Orbit are in the Hangar.
What's Xur Selling?
This week, Xur is offering the Coldheart weapon, Ashen Wake for Titans, Lucky Pants for Hunters, and Chromatic Fire for Warlocks.
This exotic trace rifle fires a constant ray which damages opponents more the longer it's on them. That makes it ideal for boss-melting (no pun intended).
One for Sunbreaker Titans, Fusion Grenades now explode on impact and gain increased throw speed. Final blows with Fusion Grenades grant grenade energy.
This hilariously titled pair of Hunter boots loads an extra round into the chamber of stowed Hand Cannons when you deal precision hits. Ideal for gunslingers, but if you don't use Hand Cannons, it won't do much for you.
One for the pyromaniacs, Chromatic Fire means that precision kills with your Kinetic weapon create an explosion in the element of your equipped subclass – great for crowd control.
