Destiny 2: Where Is Xur This Week? Exotic Items / Location Guide (Feb. 26-March 2)
The Iron Banner is running and the Master version of the Presage Exotic mission has unlocked, so there are plenty of things you'll want to stock up on good Exotics for.
Xur returns to Destiny 2 this weekend with another batch of Exotic weapons and armor for players to snag. Use them to help you take on the Master version of the Presage Exotic mission and the ongoing Iron Banner PvP event. Here's where to find Xur and what he's stocking.
Head to Nessus, to the Watcher's Grave area, to find Xur this week. For his weapon, Xur is offering Monte Carlo. Hunters can pick up the FR0ST-EE5 leg armor; for Titans, there's the Antaeus Wards boots; and for Warlocks, Xur has the Vesper of Radius chest armor.
Spawn in on Nessus at the Watcher's Grave transmat location and head north, past the Cabal land tank. You're looking for a big tree that's nestled up against the edge of the area. Climb it and you'll find Xur up on a branch overlooking the whole area.
Xur Exotic Items
Monte Carlo is Xur's weapon this week, and it's a great option for PvE and PvP activities. The gun stacks damage for both kills with Monte Carlo and melee kills, giving you plenty of excuse to rush straight into every battle. If you're not a fan of his other options, Xur also sells an Exotic engram that will decrypt into an Exotic you don't already own. He also has the new Xenology Quest, which rewards an Exotic Cipher you can use to purchase Exotics from either Xur or the Tower's Monument to Lost Lights. The quest requires you to either complete Strikes or win matches in Gambit and the Crucible.

Monte Carlo (Assault Rifle)
Monte Carlo is your gun if you like front-line fighting and punching as many enemies as you shoot. The gun creates a feedback loop with your melee ability--as you get kills with the gun, your melee cooldown is reduced and each kill gives a chance to fully recharge your melee. Killing enemies with the gun and with your melee ability increases Monte Carlo's damage, and melee kills give you more ammo. Deck yourself out with a high-Resistance build that favors melee, and Monte Carlo can chew up lots of enemies in PvE or PvP without issue.
Last week Xur had ST0MP-EE5, and this week it's their counterparts, FR0ST-EE5, or Frosties. Essentially, these boots speed up your cooldowns, converting the energy created by your feet into energy for your melee, grenade, and dodge. Dodging also gives you an increase to your sprint speed, so FR0ST-EE5 are a great all-around Exotic to wear in all situations, especially if you don't need to use anything else in particular.

Antaeus Wards (Titan)
Sliding can be a key component of fighting in Destiny 2, especially in PvP. Antaeus Wards give you an edge when sliding by improving the distance and speed of your slides. If you sprint for a short distance before sliding, Antaeus Wards give you an extra layer of protection by reflecting incoming projectiles. Slide-happy players can make themselves a lot tougher to kill using these boots, especially with some good weapons using the Slideshot perk.

Vesper Of Radius (Warlock)
Heavy Rift users might find that the Warlock ability is useful in keeping you alive, but can be too little, too late when you're in the thick of a fight. Vesper of Radius helps with that situation by firing an Arc shockwave whenever you cast a Rift, blasting any surrounding enemies. While surrounded by enemies, your rift also recharges faster so you can cast more of them.
