Destiny 2: Where Is Xur This Week? Exotic Items / Location Guide (Nov. 27-Dec. 1)

Gear up with Exotics from Xur to head into the Deep Stone Crypt raid in Destiny 2's Beyond Light expansion.

5 Comments

You've still got a few days to defeat the Deep Stone Crypt in Destiny 2 and its new expansion, Beyond Light. Finishing the raid by December 1 will earn you the right to buy an exclusive, custom raid jacket from the Bungie store--if that's your thing. To help you take down the raid, Xur is back in the solar system this weekend with a new batch of Exotics to sell. Head to The Tower, to the Hangar area, to find Xur this week. For his weapon, Xur is offering Hard Light. Hunters can pick up the Khepri's Sting gauntlets; for Titans, there's the Lion Rampant leg armor; and for Warlocks, Xur has the Phoenix Protocol chest armor.

Xur Location

Look for Xur at the north end of the Hangar, up on a catwalk.

Load into the Tower and head to the left, down the stairs, to the Hangar area to find Xur. When you hit the bottom of the stairs to reach the Hangar, turn left again and walk to the edge of the area. Xur is above you, at the top of some stairs, on a catwalk looking out over the city.

Xur Exotic Items

Xur's weapon for this week is Hard Light, an old Exotic from way back in Year One. Though Destiny 2's weapons meta has changed significantly with the release of Beyond Light, Hard Light remains a solid auto rifle to take with you into any situation, whether PvP or PvE. 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.

  • Exotic Engram -- 97 legendary shards
  • Hard Light -- 29 legendary shards
  • Khepri's Sting -- 23 legendary shards
  • Lion Rampant -- 23 legendary shards
  • Phoenix Protocol -- 23 legendary shards
  • Xenology quest -- free

Hard Light (Auto Rifle)

Hard Light is great in just about any situation, whether you need to blast enemy shields in PvE, or take down opponents in the Crucible.
Hard Light is great in just about any situation, whether you need to blast enemy shields in PvE, or take down opponents in the Crucible.

Though it was recently nerfed a bit, Hard Light is still a really great auto rifle you'll want in your rotation of weapons. First, it has great range and stability, so you can use it all over the place. In PvE activities, it's a great pick, since you can change its element on the fly to make it effective against any enemy shields. It's pretty great in PvP as well, doing solid damage at long range. If you need a reliable and versatile weapon, Hard Light is a good choice.

Khepri's Sting (Hunter)

Khepri's Sting lets you drop Smoke Bombs when you punch enemies so you can vanish in the smoke.

Hunters who like fighting at close range can get some benefits Khepri's Sting. When you punch enemies with full melee energy with the Exotic on, you'll automatically drop a Smoke Bomb that does extra damage, while giving you Truesight while you're in the smoke--allowing you to act like Batman and take advantage of the distraction.

  • Recovery: 16

Lion Rampant (Titan)

Titans who like flying and shooting can get extra accuracy and maneuverability from Lion's Rampant.

Lion's Rampant is all about amping up your Titan aerial abilities. The leg armor gives you extra aerial maneuverability, while also allowing you to accurately fire your gun from the hip while you're using Lift. If you like fighting while flying, these are the boots for you.

Phoenix Protocol (Warlock)

Warlocks who rely on Well of Radiance Supers should absolutely grab Phoenix Protocol--it's great for getting your Super back quickly to help you stay alive in tough encounters, like the Deep Stone Crypt raid.

Warlocks heading into the Deep Stone Crypt should take Phoenix Protocol with them. The Warlock chest armor works with your Well of Radiance, giving you back Super energy whenever you make kills or assists while standing in your Well. That can help you get your Super back more quickly as you fight, which can help you and your team stay alive as you battle through the new raid.
