Now Playing: Destiny 2: Forsaken - Where Is Xur? Location Guide And Walkthrough (Feb. 8-12)

It's somewhat of a quiet week in Destiny 2 given all that's been happening with the game recently, but like clockwork, Xur has checked in for his weekly visit. As always, he's here to sell some Exotic items to hopefully tide you over until the next bit of meaningful Destiny 2 content. Here's where to find him and what he's selling.

For this particular trip, Xur is located at The Tower. When you spawn, head left and go all the way to the hangar area where Amanda Holliday is found. From there, turn left and head toward the open back area, past where Dead Orbit sets up shop. You'll find Xur just up a set of stairs.

His item lineup is no surprise: three pieces of Exotic armor, with one for each class, and one Exotic weapon. That gun is Skyburner's Oath, a scout rifle that lobs somewhat slow explosive rounds. But aim down the sights and those rounds become more powerful and move significantly faster.

The armor side is more notable, because these Exotics (unlike weapons) have random rolls on their perks, so you might find something that suits your playstyle nicely. Hunters get The Dragon's Shadow chest armor, which causes your dodge ability to reload your weapons and grants a buff that improves both speed and handling for a short time. Titans get the Wormgod Caress gauntlets, which increase your melee damage when you pull off a melee kill. And finally, Warlocks get the Sunbreakers gauntlets, which cause your solar grenade to burn for longer, and melee kills restore grenade energy. The full lineup and prices are as follows:

  • Skyburner's Oath (Exotic scout rifle) -- 29 Legendary Shards
  • The Dragon's Shadow (Exotic Hunter chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
  • Sunbreakers (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
  • Wormgod Caress (Exotic Titan gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards

Also available from Xur is the Fated engram. This costs a whopping 97 Legendary shards but will decrypt into a Year One Exotic you don't already own (assuming you haven't collected them all). While pricey, it's a reliable way to fill out your Exotic collection. Additionally, Xur has the Five of Swords challenge card that lets you add modifiers to Nightfall Strikes.

While the first part of Destiny 2's annual pass has concluded, you can still work on getting The Last Word Exotic hand cannon. Next week will bring the Crimson Days event for Valentine's Day; that begins on February 13.
