[Last Chance] Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location, New Exotics, And Invitation Of The Nine Guide (May 3-May 7)

Time to visit your Exotics agent.


The latest timed event in Destiny 2, the spring-themed Revelry, is nearly at an end. There's only one day left to dive into the Verdant Forest, complete your Triumphs, and unlock the game's latest Exotic weapon, the Arbalest, before it's all gone with the weekly reset on Tuesday, May 7. If you're still struggling, we've got a guide that can help nabbing Arbalest go a little quicker. And if you need more Exotics, good news: you still have one day to hit up the snake-faced Xur.

Head to Io to find Xur for one more day, hanging out in the Gaint's Scar region. From the spawn point, ride your sparrow north and head to the cliff wall on the left side of the area. Look for a cave entrance: Inside, you'll find Xur waiting and, as usual, acting a little weird.

The Huckleberry is Xur's Exotic weapon of choice this week. The Exotic submachine gun fires bullets extremely quickly, and kills refill its magazine from reserves, making it a deadly close-range bullet hose. In the armor department, Xur brought two Forsaken Exotics this week, making up for last week's disappointing inventory. Titans can pick up the Antaeus Wards leg armor, which reflcet incoming projectiles, refilling your Super energy, when you slide. For Warlocks, there's Contraverse Hold, Exotic gauntlets that power up your charged Void grenades, returning grenade energy on a hit and helping you resist damage. Hunters get a Year One Exotic: Gemini Jester, a leg armor set that disorients enemies and turns off their radar when you dodge near them.

Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they'll cost you:

  • The Huckleberry (Exotic SMG) -- 29 Legendary Shards
  • Antaeus Wards (Exotic Titan leg armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
  • Gemini Jester (Exotic Hunter leg armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
  • Contraverse Hold (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards

If nothing Xur has strikes your fancy, you can also purchase a Fated Engram from Xur. Thanks to a recent update, Fated Engrams can now dish out Exotics from the Forsaken expansion, as well as from the original Year One group. Grabbing one of the engrams gives you a random Exotic that you don't already have--if you can afford it. Fated Engrams will run you 97 Legendary Shards, and you can only get one per account each week. 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.

Finally, Xur brings yet another Invitation of the Nine weekly bounty. Completing these gives you a Powerful gear drop, as well as a bit of story about the Nine and the Drifter, along with a new Lore entry that fills in the history of the Emissary of the Nine. As usual, you'll have to clear out a mess of enemies of various types, and complete a Strike. Stick to the planet mentioned in the bounty to kill the enemies you need, as they don't always count if you kill them in other places. Be sure to finish the bounty by Thursday's daily reset, or you won't be able to grab a fresh bounty from Xur on Friday.
