Destiny 2 Xur Location Guide: Where Is Xur, What Exotics Is He Selling? (November 6)
Please, Xur, can I have some more?
Just like that weird guy you never see for most of the year, but who suddenly appears in the summer driving an ice cream van full of treats in your area, Xur is back. This week Destiny 2's suspiciously odd merchant has popped up on Earth's European Dead Zone. That makes for another easy opportunity to expand your collection of Exotic items, which PC players in particular may still be focusing on. This also coincides with the launch of the latest Trials of the Nine (and its first appearance on PC).
To find Xur, you simply need to fast travel to the Winding Cove and then jump on your Sparrow and use the path on the left. You'll see Xur standing around above you, near the downed ship. He's been here before, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding him, but if you'd like a visual guide, check out the video above. You can see what items Xur has to sell below in exchange for Legendary Shards--as always, there's one Exotic weapon (a pulse rifle) and one Exotic armor piece for Warlocks, Titans, and Hunters each.
- Graviton Lance (Pulse Rifle)- 29 Legendary Shards
- Young Ahamkara's Spine (Hunter Class Gauntlets) - 23 Legendary Shards
- Mask of the Quiet One (Titan Class Helmet) - 23 Legendary Shards
- Nezarec's Sin (Warlock Class Helmet) - 23 Legendary Shards
Destiny 2's second-ever Faction Rally event begins on November 7 and will run run through November 13. As with the previous rally you'll have to align yourself with a faction, choosing between New Monarchy, Future War Cult, or Dead Orbit, and then head out to collect the most reward packages for your group. You can read more about Destiny 2's new Faction Rally here and see the full patch notes here.
Developer Bungie has also released a new update that impacts the Faction Rally by adjusting how Faction Tokens are given out. Each completed Strike now provides anywhere from five to nine Tokens; previously, they offered three to seven. The first Nightfall of the week (per character) provides 10 to 18 Tokens, while Heroic Public Events hand out five (down from eight). You can check out the full Destiny 2 patch notes here.
If you're still trying to complete the Leviathan Raid, you can also read our Destiny 2 raid guide. The Raid is now live on all platforms, including PC, providing a new high-level challenge and special rewards. Prestige mode for PC players is still to come, but Challenge mode is available for those on all platforms.
