Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Xur Location And Exotic Items Guide (Oct. 12-16)
The weekend is upon us, which for Destiny 2 players means that Xur–the mysterious merchant who’s here to either delight or disappoint you–has arrived. He’s got another slate of Exotic items for sale, which you have a limited time to buy. Here’s where to find Xur and what he’s selling for this week.
Xur’s Year 2 appearances have seen him return to his same old locations, and this visit is no different. Right now, you can find Xur on Titan. Head to the The Rig landing zone, turn left, and make your way through the open building. Once you reach the next wide open area, turn left again and drop down one floor. You’ll find Xur hanging out in a building, as seen in the map below; you can also watch our video above for guidance on how to reach him.
In terms of items, it’s the standard lineup: one Exotic armor for each class, and one Exotic weapon. The weapon is Tractor Cannon, the Portal gun-looking shotgun that prevents affected enemies from using abilities and makes them take more damage, especially from void. More entertainingly, however, it also blasts enemies backwards.
For armor, Titans get the Synthoceps gauntlets, which increases how far you can lunge with a melee attack and provides you with more melee and Super damage when surrounded by enemies. Hunters can pick up the Gemini Jester leg armor, which provides your dodge with some added perks: it disorients enemies and causes their radar to disappear temporarily. Warlocks can grab the Sanguine Alchemy chest armor; this buffs your Rift to provide you and allies with some enhancements. This includes being able to see your radar when aiming down sights and visual markers being placed on powerful enemies. You might already own this armor, but bear in mind that these are Year 2 versions that feature more perks than the versions from Year 1 you might have.
- Tractor Cannon (Exotic Shotgun) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Synthoceps (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Gemini Jester (Exotic Hunter leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Sanguine Alchemy (Exotic Warlock chest armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
Alongside these specific items for sale, Xur offers the Fated Engram. This is expensive, at 97 Legendary Shards, but it guarantees you a Year One Exotic you don’t already own, so it’s a good way to fill out your collection, provided you can afford it.
Although this week didn’t bring with it much in the way of new content, aside from the latest Ascendant Challenge, there is a lot coming soon. Tuesday, October 16, will see the release of the first of two big updates launching for the game this month. This patch will coincide with the debut of Festival of the Lost, Destiny 2’s Halloween-themed event, as well as the next instance of Iron Banner. Unlike the first instance of the multiplayer activity after Forsaken’s release, this one will have easier bounties, and each one will offer a piece of Powerful gear as a reward.
