It’s been quite a week for Destiny 2 fans. First, there was the launch of the Season of Opulence and its new activities and raid. Then there was Bungie’s gigantic rundown of information about Destiny 2’s next chapter, including Shadowkeep, its fall expansion, and the upcoming addition of cross-save capability that’ll let you transfer your characters between platforms. We almost forgot that Friday means a visit from Exotics vendor Xur, his first of the new season.
Those of us steeped in Destiny 2 lore might wonder if Xur’s location this week implies something more significant about the Nine, a group of entities whose were a major part of last season’s story, and their relationship with the Cabal emperor. You’ll find Xur on Nessus, hanging out on Calus’s barge near quest-giver Werner 99-40. This week he’s got Sweet Business, an Exotic auto rifle that sprays tons of bullets from its 99-round magazine and gives you bonus accuracy when you fire from the hip.
Hunters are the lucky ones if you’re still trying to pick up newer Exotics: Xur is offering Sixth Coyote, the only Year Two Exotic in his bag this week. The chest armor gives you a second dodge charge, which can be very handy in the Crucible. For Warlocks, there’s Karnstein Armlets, which give you health back when you land melee kills. Finally, Titans can snag Ashen Wake, a set of gloves that increase the throw speed of your Fusion grenades and make them detonate on impact.
Xur Exotics For June 7-11
- Sweet Business (Exotic auto rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Ashen Wake (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- The Sixth Coyote (Exotic Hunter chest armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Karnstein Armlets (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
If Xur’s inventory doesn’t interest, you can also buy a Fated Engram, if you can afford it. Dropping 97 Legendary Shards on the item will grant you one Year One Exotic you don’t already have for that character. 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.
And if you haven’t finished all of Xur’s Invitations of the Nine from the Season of the Drifter, you can snag one of those as well. The bounty was new in Season of the Drifter, dispensing Powerful gear rewards, a bit of story about the Nine and the Drifter, and a lore drop.
