Another weekend, another visit from Xur and his bag of Exotics in Destiny 2. The latest update to the game made another big change to Xur’s inventory, giving you even more chances to get the Exotic weapons and armor you might not have. Unfortunately, though, Xur is only carrying Year One Exotics this week.
To find Xur this weekend, head to the Tower. Drop onto the Hangar side and head to the stairs behind where the Dead Orbit folks hang out. You’ll find Xur up on a catwalk near the edge of the area. Leading Xur’s haul is the Jade Rabbit Exotic scout rifle, which gives you extra precision damage when you chain body shots, and also returns ammo to the gun’s magazine.
In the armor category, Titans can snag the Dunemarchers leg armor, which increases your sprint speed and builds up a static charge when you sprint, which releases chain lightning when you use melee attacks on enemies. Hunters get the Lucky Pants leg armor, which increase the handling speed of hand cannons and load rounds into your stowed hand canons when you nail precision shots with other guns. Finally, for Warlocks, there’s Starfire Protocol, an Exotic chest armor that gives you an additional Fusion grenade charge, with grenades giving you Rift energy and damage from Rift empowered weapons giving you grenade energy.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they’ll cost you:
- Jade Rabbit (Exotic scout rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Dunemarchers (Exotic Titan leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Lucky Pants (Exotic Hunter leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Starfire Protocol (Exotic Warlock chest armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
If you’re bummed with the Year One haul Xur brings this week, you’ve got another option: You can purchase a Fated Engram. Starting this week, Fated Engrams can now dish out Exotics from the Forsaken expansion. If there’s anything you’re missing from the first expansion of Year Two, you can now potentially get it, if you can afford it–Fated Engrams will run you 97 Legendary Shards, and you can only get one per account each week. Xur also offers the Five of Swords challenge card for free, which allows you to add difficulty modifiers that increase your score in Nightfall runs.
Xur also brings another Invitation of the Nine this week, a weekly bounty that gives you a Powerful gear drop, a bit of story about the Nine, and a new Lore entry. If you’ve been keeping up each week, this one will send you to Mercury to complete Garden World Strike. You’ll also need to kill Cabal, Hive, and Vex enemies.
