Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Xur Location And Exotics Guide (Oct. 26-30)
Xur is here with Hardlight and more.
With Festival of the Lost ongoing and some welcome changes coming quite soon, Destiny 2 players have a lot going on. But one thing that doesn't change is the weekly appearance from Xur, the mysterious merchant who is back until the weekly reset on October 30 to sell an assortment of Exotic items. Here's where to find him and what he's selling. [Update: It's now Monday, meaning you have about a day left to visit Xur before he disappears as part of the weekly reset on Tuesday.]
For this visit, you'll find Xur located in the EDZ. Spawn at the Winding Cove landing zone and make your way straight ahead, past the Public Event area. Just across the road, up on the hill, is a crashed ship. Xur is found just to the right of it, and you can reach him by platforming up the nearby rocks. You can see the location in the map below.
His lineup of items consists of the same sort of things as usual: an Exotic weapon and a piece of Exotic armor for each class. The weapon is the fusion rifle Telesto, which shoots projectiles that stick to whatever they hit before exploding. It's a good time.
For armor, Titans get the Actium War Rig chest armor; this reloads ammo into your auto rifle's magazine, letting you fire it for extended periods of time (it pairs nicely with Sweet Business, the chain gun-style auto rifle). Hunters get the Sealed Ahamkara Grasps gauntlets, which reload your equipped weapon when you land a melee hit. Warlocks get the similarly named Claws of Ahamkara gauntlets, which give you a second melee charge. You might already own these armor pieces, but it could be worth buying if you have Year One versions, as the ones Xur has will have additional perks.
- Telesto (Exotic fusion rifle) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- Actium War Rig (Exotic Titan chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Sealed Ahamkara Grasps (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Claws of Ahamkara (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards
Xur also has a challenge card for adding modifiers to the Nightfall, as well as the Fated engram. This costs 97 Legendary Shards, a somewhat steep sum, but it's guaranteed to decrypt into an Exotic you don't own from Year One.
The Fated engram is a reliable way to build out your collection of Exotics, but there is some hope for that to become easier soon. Bungie has shared further details on its plans to make Exotic duplicates less common; these changes will be implemented as part of an update launching on October 30. This will also introduce various quality-of-life changes, as well as a nerf to Sleeper Simulant in Gambit.
