The Revelry is in full swing and the Iron Banner has returned in Destiny 2, and if that wasn’t enough, it’s also the weekend–which means it’s Xur time. The Agent of the Nine is back once again with an offering of Exotics to sell, although unfortunately he’s not bringing any of the Exotics from Forsaken with him this time out. He does, however, offer a Fated Engram that guarantees a fresh Exotic, and a new Invitation of the Nine weekly bounty. And if you’re still hurting for Exotics, you can head into the Verdant Forest and snag the Arbalest with our handy guide.
Head to Titan to find Xur this week. He’s in the area marked as The Rig, hanging out in a low building to the northeast of the spawn point. Ride your sparrow north with the edge of the platform and the water on your left until you see a low building; the vendor is inside.
Xur brings Sweet Business with him this week, an Exotic auto rifle that sprays an ridiculous amount of ammo. The gun increases its fire rate and range the longer you hold down the trigger and automatically reloads from ammo you pick up off the ground, allowing you to do a ton of shooting without stopping. On the armor side, Xur brings Hunters the Lucky Pants leg armor, which reloads your stowed hand cannon for every precision hit you land, and makes hand cannons faster and more accurate when you swap to them. For Titans, there’s Doom Fang Pauldron, which gives you Super energy when you make melee kills, extends your Super on Shield Throw hits, and recharges Shield Throw when you get melee kills with your Super active. Finally, for Warlocks, there’s the Aeon Soul gauntlets, which recharges your allies’ class abilities, especially if they’re also wearing Aeon Cult Exotics.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they’ll cost you:
- Sweet Business (Exotic auto rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Doom Fang Pauldron (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Lucky Pants (Exotic Hunter leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Aeon Soul (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
You can also purchase a Fated Engram from Xur, if his inventory doesn’t interest you. Fated Engrams can now dish out Exotics from the Forsaken expansion, as well as the Year One group. Grabbing one of the engrams gives you a random Exotic that you don’t already have, provided 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 another Invitation of the Nine weekly bounty. It gives you a Powerful gear drop when you complete it, as well as a bit of story about the Nine and the Drifter, and a new Lore entry. 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.
