Change continues to come to Destiny 2 following the release of Forsaken, but the one thing you can count on is a weekly appearance from Xur. The mysterious merchant has arrived once again with a slate of Exotic gear for sale–here’s what he has this week, as well as where you can find him on the map.
Visiting Xur this week is pretty easy–he’s located at the Tower. Head over to the hangar (go left when you first spawn) and you’ll find him hanging out on a set of stairs just behind where Dead Orbit and Future War Cult are situated. You can see where he is on the map below.
As for Exotics, he has one piece of armor for each class and one weapon, as per usual. The weapon is the very fun-to-use auto rifle Sweet Business, which features a magazine size of 99 and essentially operates like a chaingun. Titans get the chest armor Hallowfire Heart, which boosts Solar ability recharge rates. Warlocks get the Winter’s Guile gauntlets, which increase melee damage temporarily when you get a melee kill. And Hunters get the Aeon Swift gauntlets, which provide various benefits to nearby teammates when you roll (particularly if they’re always wearing an Aeon item).
Here’s the full lineup and prices:
- Sweet Business (Exotic auto rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Hallowfire Heart (Exotic Titan chest armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Winter’s Guile (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Aeon Swift (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
Alongside these items, you can pick up a Five of Swords challenge card for adding modifiers to the Nightfall. Or you can grab the expensive Fated Engram; this costs 97 Legendary Shards but guarantees to decrypt into a Year One Exotic you don’t already own.
Welcome changes are on the way to Destiny 2, particularly regarding Exotics. Bungie says it plans to reduce the likelihood of Exotics dropping as duplicates of those you already own. Additionally, it’s going to add new ways to acquire Masterwork Cores (needed to infuse items and upgrade them) and provide more Powerful gear through future Iron Banner events.
This was a big week for the game, as a number of new activities came online. Breakthrough was released for Crucible, while a dungeon debuted alongside a pair of new Exotic questlines, including one for Malfeasance.
