Another week has passed, and in Destiny 2, that means Xur has arrived once again to hock his Exotic wares. Unlike his first post-Curse of Osiris appearance, however, this one is more meaningful, thanks to the release of the game’s latest patch. Here’s a walkthrough on how to find Xur this week and a look at what he’s selling.
Xur has taken up residence in a new location for him, on the Tower. That means you’ll first need to gain access to that social space in order to check out what he has for sale. In order to reach him, spawn into the Tower and head toward the northeastern part of the map, where Dead Orbit is stationed. Behind their area is a set of stairwells; start to head up those, and you’ll encounter him toward one of the lower levels.
Unlike last week, none of the gear Xur is selling is exclusive to Curse of Osiris. He’s got the usual selection of one Exotic weapon and one piece of Exotic armor for each class. More notably, he also has some new item types. This marks Xur’s first weekend since the release of Destiny 2’s 184.108.40.206 update. As a result, he now sells Three of Coins and Fated Engrams. These Three of Coins work a bit differently than those in Destiny 1, as they simply increase Exotic drop chances for four hours. Fated Engrams provide you with an Exotic item you don’t already own, but you’re limited to purchasing one per account each week. Here’s the full Xur lineup this week:
- DARCI (Sniper Rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Celestial Nighthawk (Hunter Helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Hallowfire Heart (Titan Chest Armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Eye of Another World (Warlock Helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Three of Coins — 31 Legendary Shards
This has been a big week for Destiny 2, as the 220.127.116.11 update introduced Masterworks weapons and some other notable changes. However, the planned Faction Rally event was canceled as Bungie, in response to player outrage, makes changes to what content non-DLC owners have access to. Additionally, Bungie announced the details of Destiny 2’s The Dawning event, which launches soon to celebrate the holidays.
