UPDATE: XUR CAN BE FOUND ON A CLIFF IN THE WINDING COVE, IN THE EDZ (EARTH)
See below for his inventory!
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.
With Season of the Dawning coming to a close, and Season 10 teasing a renewed focus on PVP gameplay, its time to check in with Xur.
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 in the EDZ, on a cliff overlooking the Winding Cove.
What's Xur Selling?
This week, Xur is offering plenty of fresh goodies for Guardians.
Alongside the aforementioned Isochronal Engram, there's The Colony grenade launcher, Raiden Flux for Hunters, Mask of the Quiet One for Titans, and Crown of Tempests for Hunters.
This grenade launcher fire Insectoid Robot Grenades that actually chase enemies, and it can reload the magazine while unequipped, making it handy in a pinch against unexpected bosses.
This week, Hunters get to grab this stylish chest armour. Every time you slap an enemy around with your Arc Staff super ability, you'll buff its damage and duration. That makes it ideal for tougher enemies.
Mask of the Quiet One
This dreary-looking Titan helmet offers bonuses to Sentinel users. Every time you kill an enemy with melee or grenade kills with the Void-based subclass, your health will regenerate, while taking damage charges those same abilities – like a never-ending cycle of damage-dealing.
Crown of Tempests
More than just a cool name, this Hunter helmet boosts the recharge rate of Arc abilities when you get Arc kills. That means you'll need to use Stormcaller to get the most out of it.
