Xur has returned to Destiny 2 once again, and for the second time in as many weeks, the weekend Exotic vendor has new things to offer. Not only does he have another Forsaken Exotic for Warlocks looking to complete their collections, but he’s offering the first Invitation of the Nine, a special bounty that gives new information about Xur’s enigmatic masters.
You’ll find Xur on Titan this week, hanging out in a small shed on The Rig. Head north from the spawn point and check in a small building toward the edge of the platform. There you can purchase Crimson, a phenomenal Exotic hand cannon that fires a burst of three shots at a time. Kills with Crimson heal you, and precision kills refill the magazine, making it a pretty devastating weapon, especially in Crucible. Crimson is a great hand cannon to take with you on the lengthy Crucible grind if you’re working on the quest to get the new Exotic hand cannon Thorn–check out our guide for some handy tips, including where to find the start of the Thorn quest.
For armor, Warlocks win this week with a Forsaken Exotic after missing out on getting one last week. It’s Chromatic Fire, a chest armor piece that makes precision kills with your Kinetic weapon detonate enemies with elemental blasts. For Titans, there’s Wormgod Caress, a set of gauntlets that increase your melee damage for every melee kill you get, with streaks lengthening the effect’s duration. Finally, Hunters can snag the Orpheus Rig Exotic boots, which gives you more shots in the Moebius Quiver version of the Shadowshot super, and gives you ability energy for every enemy tethered by it.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they’ll cost you:
- Crimson (Exotic combat bow) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Wormgod Caress (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Orpheus Rig (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Chromatic Fire (Exotic Warlock Chest Armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
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.
Xur is also packing an Invitation From the Nine, a bounty that’s new with the Jokers Wild expansion content. The first one requires players to farm enemies in the Lake of Shadows Strike, and you can expect a new one every week. The goal is to finish off nine of them to earn some special rewards.
