[Last Chance] Where Is Xur Today? Destiny 2 Exotic Location, Weapon, Armor (August 2-6)
Need some Exotics to help with Solstice of Heroes? Xur has your back.
Guardians got some bad news last week: Destiny 2's next chapter, Shadowkeep, has been delayed. The upcoming expansion is now slated for October 1, instead of its mid-September release date. The good news is, 2019's Moments of Triumph event has been extended, giving you more time to complete your MMXIX seal. And at least it's time for the arrival of Xur, Agent of the Nine, who is always on time. He's back with another haul of Exotics you can use to complete your collections as we near the completion of Destiny 2's Year Two--and he has a particular helmet that Titans won't want to miss, even if you already have a copy.
Where Is Xur?
Head to the Tower and down the stairs on the Hangar side to find Xur. He's chilling out on a catwalk toward the north end of the area, up a flight of stairs and near the edge of the Tower.
What Is Xur Selling?
As is always the case, Xur is offering an Exotic weapon and three pieces of Exotic armor, one for each character class. It's a pretty good haul this week if you're a Titan: Xur brought One-Eyed Mask, a Year Two Exotic he's only sold rarely--and it has a great role with Enhanced Hand Cannon Targeting. If you need something Xur isn't carrying, you can always snag an expensive Fated Engram, which will guarantee you an Exotic you don't already have--but only from the first year of Destiny 2 content or Forsaken. Anything that has come from the Annual Pass expansions over the last year won't be in the Fated Engram pool, so make sure you know what you need before you buy. You can also grab a Five of Swords card, which lets you adjust Nightfall runs for higher scores, and an Invitation of the Nine from the Season of the Drifter if you haven't completed them all yet.
- The Huckleberry (Exotic submachine gun) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- ST0MP-EE5 (Exotic Hunter leg armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Winter's Guile (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- One-Eyed Mask (Exotic Titan helmet) -- 23 Legendary Shards
If you like submachine guns, and especially if you haven't yet unlocked The Recluse pinnacle weapon, The Huckleberry is a gun you should consider. It chews through enemies in PvE situations very quickly. Its Ride the Bull perk increases your fire rate the longer you unload while reloading part of the magazine when you earn kills. It also carries the Rampage perk, making this a bullet firehose that absolutely devastates groups of enemies at close range.
If you don't have ST0MP-EE5 by now and you play Hunter, buy them. This Exotic is essential for some troubling platforming moments, especially in Raids. The boots greatly increase your jump height and maneuverability, while also amping up your sprint speed and slide distances. There's too much utility in ST0MP-EE5 for any Hunter not to own them.
- Slot 1: Fusion Rifle Dexterity; Submachine Gun Dexterity; Traction
- Slot 2: Arrow Scavenger; Scout Rifle Scavenger
Punch-happy Warlocks will enjoy Winter's Guile. Kill enemies with melee attacks, and the Exotic increases your melee damage. Nothing simpler than that.
- Slot 1: Rocket Launcher Loader; Momentum Transfer; Enhanced Impact Induction
- Slot 2: Shotgun Scavenger; Sniper Rifle Scavenger
A favorite among Titans in the Crucible, One-Eyed Mask marks enemies who damage you. If you manage to then track them down and destroy them, you get an overshield and a damage increase. This is a great one for helping you clear bounties and Solstice of Heroes requirements in PvP.
- Slot 1: Unflinching Pulse Rifle Aim; Pump Action; Enhanced Hand Cannon Targeting
- Slot 2: Linear Fusion Rifle Reserves; Special Ammo Finder
