[Last Chance] Where is Xur? Destiny 2 Location, Exotics, And Invitation Of The Nine Guide (March 22-29)
It's time to get Exotic.
The weekend is here in Destiny 2, and that means Xur, the Agent of the Nine, is too. As usual, Xur is offering a slate of Exotics for a tidy sum, including one from the Forsaken expansion--once again, Warlocks are the lucky ones. But this time, he's also got a special weekly bounty for players to complete. Here's where to find him and what he's offering.
The flashpoint is in Earth's EDZ this week, and as is usually the case, that's where Xur is too. You can find him hanging around in the Winding Cove area, up on a cliff wall near a crashed Fallen drop ship. From the spawn point, head straight up to the north, then climb up to find him.
Xur's weapon of choice this week is The Huckleberry, a powerful and fast-firing submachine gun. Its 30-round magazine goes pretty fast, especially with the Ride The Bull perk, which increases the fire rate and recoil as you hold down the trigger. Rack up kills with the gun to refill its magazine, letting you spray fire even more. It also comes with the Rampage perk, so you do more damage the more kills you earn.
In the armor department, Xur has the gift of the Contraverse Hold Exotic gauntlets for Warlocks, the only offering from the Forsaken set of Exotics. The gauntlets allow you to resist damage when charging up your Warlock grenades for their alternate uses, like Handheld Supernova, Chaos Accelerant, or Feed The Void. You also get a random amount of grenade energy back on a grenade hit. For Titans, there's Mask of the Quiet One, which gives you ability energy when you're damaged and refills your health to maximum when you get kills while critically wounded. Finally, Hunters can snag the Gemini Jester leg armor, which is good for Crucible fights. Using your dodge ability near enemies causes them to lose their radar, which is great when paired with the disappearing effects of the Nightstalker class.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they'll cost you:
- Huckleberry (Exotic combat bow) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- Mask of the Quiet One (Exotic Titan gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Orpheus Rig (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Contraverse Hold (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.
Like last week, Xur also offers an Invitation of the Nine this week. It requires you to head to Titan, where you'll need to run the Savathun's Song Strike--luckily, you can just choose it from the map and run the low-level version--and to gather nine "samples" from Hive and Fallen enemies. You'll get quite a few just from doing Savathun's Song, and the rest you can farm up from patrol zones on Titan. The best way is to get into some public events, but running around shooting enemies will eventually get you all the samples you need.
Completing the Invitation will send you to the Drifter's Haul, where you'll meet with the Emissary of the Nine for a bit of story content. You'll also net a piece of Powerful gear and some new lore about exactly who the Nine are and what their deal is.
The Nine aren't the only ones offering new gear--you can complete the tough Thorn quest to unlock the powerful Exotic hand cannon of Destiny 1 infamy. There's also the allegiance quest, with different rewards depending on if you pick Drifter or Vanguard.
