Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location, Exotics, And Invitation Of The Nine Guide (May 17-21)
Destiny 2‘s Season the Drifter is quickly coming to an end. The season’s last Exotic, Outbreak Perfected, is out in the wild, and we’re currently seeing the final Iron Banner before the Season of Opulence starts on June 4 and brings new content for Annual Pass holders. And with his arrival this weekend, Xur brings not only another stash of Exotic weapons and armor, but the final Invitation of the Nine, completing the story of the Drifter and the Emissary. Unfortunately, at least one of those Exotics has a nerf coming its way.
Head to Titan if you’re looking for Xur. He’s hanging out on The Rig in a small building to the north of the spawn point. Ride your sparrow until you’ve got water on your left, then head into the low building to your left to find Xur inside. He’s offering D.A.R.C.I. this week, an Exotic sniper rifle that gives you information on enemies when you aim down the sights at them with its Personal Assistant perk, and which amps up the damage you do when Personal Assistant is active.
For armor, Xur offers Celestial Nighthawk helmet for Hunters, which gives you one high-damage shot for your Golden Gun Super, rather than several weaker shots. It also makes enemies explode, and killing enemies with your Golden Gun gets you Super energy back. Titans get the Ursa Furiosa gauntlets, which give you Super energy back based on how much damage you absorb with your Sentinel Shield Super, and gives you faster movement speed when you’re using it. Finally, for Warlocks, there’s Geomag Stabilizers, a set of boots that increase the duration of your Chaos Reach Super as you do damage with it. You can also sometimes get Super energy for sprinting.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they’ll cost you:
- D.A.R.C.I. (Exotic sniper rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Ursa Furiosa (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Celestial Nighthawk (Exotic Hunter helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Geomag Stabilizers (Exotic Warlock leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
If nothing Xur has strikes your fancy, you can also purchase a Fated Engram from Xur. Thanks to a recent update, Fated Engrams can now dish out Exotics from the Forsaken expansion, as well as from the original Year One group (but not from the Black Armory or the Jokers Wild expansions). Grabbing one of the engrams gives you a random Exotic that you don’t already have–if 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, this Xur visit marks the arrival of the final Invitation of the Nine weekly bounty, which you can also snag one from Xur. Completing these gives you a Powerful gear drop, as well as a bit of story about the Nine and the Drifter and a new Lore entry that fills in the history of the Emissary of the Nine. Unlike the other bounties that have had players visiting planets and completing Strikes, this one takes you to the Crucible to play through nine different matches. If you’re not finished with your older Invitations, you can still complete one per week until you’ve received them all. Be sure to finish the bounty by Thursday’s daily reset, or you won’t be able to grab a fresh bounty from Xur on Friday.
