For the first time since the release of Forsaken, Destiny 2’s mysterious merchant Xur has arrived. As always, he has a selection of Exotic armor and a weapon for sale. But in a change we first saw last week, you won’t find Xur on the map. Here’s what he has for sale and where to find him.
Destiny 2’s 2.0 update made some notable changes to Xur, the most significant of which concern where he’s located. Not only can you not find him on the map, you’ll no longer simply find him wherever the current Flashpoint is happening.
For this weekend’s appearance, you can find Xur at the Tower. He’s returned to his usual spot, just behind Dead Orbit’s area. When you spawn in, turn left and make your way toward the hangar. Go under the Future War Cult area and toward the Dead Orbit section. Just up a set of stairs, next to a landing pad, you’ll see Xur hanging out by himself.
In terms of his wares, he now offers a more limited selection of items overall. For consumables, the Three of Coins (now deprecated) is gone; he only has the Five of Swords challenge card. For Exotics, however, he does have one weapon, as well as one piece of armor for each class. Disappointingly, both the weapon and Titan armor–Prometheus Lens and Ashen Wake, respectively–are the same as last week’s offering. The Fated engram, which guaranteed you an Exotic you don’t already own, is nowhere to be seen.
Here’s what’s on sale right now and how much it costs:
Xur Exotics Armor And Weapon For Sale
- Prometheus Lens (Exotic Trace Rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Exotic Hunter Gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Nezarec’s Sin (Exotic Warlock Helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Ashen Wake (Exotic Titan Gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
Again, you’ll find that you may want to purchase Exotics you already own, as these versions feature more and different perks than existing versions. These may also be higher Power level than those you already have, which spares you the trouble of spending Masterwork Cores to infuse them.
