We’ve reached the weekend, which for Destiny 2 players means another appearance by Xur. Coinciding with Iron Banner and a Crucible event that rewards bonus Valor, the mysterious merchant has popped up again with a slate of Exotic items for sale–although, once again, none of it comes from the new Forsaken DLC. Here’s where to find Xur and what Exotic weapon and armor he’s selling.
For this latest appearance, Xur has returned to Nessus. If you’ve visited him there before, you’ll know where to go–he’s located in Watcher’s Grave. Spawn in at the local landing zone and simply make your way straight toward a giant tree. Walk near the base of it and you’ll find a branch you can jump up, and you can make your way to Xur.
In typical fashion, he has a single Exotic weapon and one piece of armor for each class. The weapon is the hand cannon Crimson, which features the Banned Weapon perk, causing it to fire a three-round burst. It also has Cruel Remedy, which heals you when you get a kill with it and refills the magazine if you pull off a precision kill. It’s stored in the primary weapon slot and is a nice addition to your arsenal.
On the armor side, Hunters get the annoyingly named St0mp-EE5 leg armor (buffing sprints, slides, and jumps). Titans get Khepri’s Horn helmet (kills with solar damage recharge your barricade class ability, which when first deployed causes a blast of solar damage). And Warlocks get the Verity’s Brow helmet (speeds up the recharge on grenades when killing enemies with an energy weapon). The full lineup of gear and prices follows below.
- Crimson (Exotic Hand Cannon) — 29 Legendary Shards
- St0mp-EE5 (Exotic Hunter Leg Armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Khepri’s Horn (Exotic Titan Helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Verity’s Brow (Exotic Warlock Helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
Also back after disappearing briefly is the Fated Engram. While expensive, this guarantees you a Year 1 Exotic that you don’t already own.
There’s a lot happening in Destiny 2 right now. The Raid went live last week, and the first completion of it unlocked new content, including a Gambit map and a Strike. There still seems to be more change to come, but we do know a new Crucible mode called Breakthrough is coming next week. And, as noted above, the first post-Forsaken Iron Banner is ongoing, offering players a competitive PvP playlist where your Power level matters.
