Destiny 2 is gearing up for some pretty massive changes. In its latest blog post, Bungie outlined exactly when it's adding cross save to the game--and with it, the ability to transfer characters between PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There are only a couple of weeks before Guardians can start defending the solar system on any platform they want. That makes this a great chance to fill out your Exotic collection before making the jump. As always, Xur is sticking around for one more day before he leaves with the weekly reset, and he has another batch of Exotic items for just that purpose.
Where Is Xur?
You can find Xur on Nessus. Head to the Watcher's Grave transmat zone, then ride northwest up to Calus's floating barge, where you'll find Werner 99-40. Xur is standing at the back of the barge, admiring the view.
What Is Xur Selling?
As is always the case, Xur brings one Exotic weapon and three pieces of Exotic armor, one specific to each character class. 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 Colony (Exotic grenade launcher) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- Shards of Galanor (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Chromatic Fire (Exotic Warlock chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- ACD/0 Feedback Fence (Exotic Titan gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
Xur's weapon this week is The Colony, a handy grenade launcher if you're struggling to hit your opponents with arcing grenade shots. It fires spider bots that track their prey over a short distance, running them down and exploding. That makes it very useful for the Crucible, especially if you're trying to get grenade kills for the Mountaintop pinnacle weapon quest.
ACD/0 Feedback Fence
Titans can pick up an old piece of Exotic armor. The ACD/0 Feedback Fence gauntlets are great if you're the kind of Guardian who likes to mix it up at close ranges and dish out a lot of melee punishment. Notching melee kills builds up energy in the gauntlets, and when you get hit with a melee strike, the energy explodes outward.
- Slot 1: Pulse Rifle Loader; Sidearm Loader; Momentum Transfer
- Slot 2: Sniper Rifle Scavenger; Machine Gun Scavenger
Shards Of Galanor
Hunters get the Year Two Exotic in Xur's haul this week. Shards of Galanor amp up your Blade Barrage Super, returning Super energy when you get hits and kills with it. Bungie nerfed the Exotic gauntlets not too long ago, so they're not as effective as they used to be, but these gauntlets are still worth snagging if you don't have them. This roll is also pretty solid, offering two Enhanced perks.
- Slot 1: Bow Reloader; Enhanced Impact Induction; Enhanced Hand Cannon Loader
- Slot 2: Rocket Launcher Scavenger; Sniper Rifle Scavenger
A handy Exotic for Warlocks chasing orbs during the Solstice of Heroes, Chromatic Fire creates elemental explosions. When you're wearing it, enemies you take out with precision kills will explode, firing off elemental energy of the subclass you're using. That can make it useful for creating orbs even when you're using your Kinetic weapons during the Solstice.
- Slot 1: Unflinching Fusion Rifle Aim; Unflinching Hand Cannon Aim; Unflinching Sniper Aim
- Slot 2: Bow Reserves; Special Ammo Finder
