Destiny 2 Xur Location and Inventory Guide for December 1 – December 4, 2017
It’s Friday, which means that it’s time for our Destiny 2 Xur location and inventory guide. Unlike Destiny 1, where Xur was always present in a social space, the mysterious vendor can now be found out in the exploration zones. His currency is Legendary Shards, which can be obtained by breaking down legendary and exotic gear. Xur now stays from reset Friday morning until the weekly reset on Tuesday, so no more worrying about getting to him within a 48 hour window.
This week, Xur is in the EDZ. Fast travel to Winding Cove and head straight up the canyon once you spawn in. Xur is on a ledge overlooking the area. You can mark his location on your map. This week, Xur is selling the Sweet Business Auto Rifle for 29 shards. The Lucky Raspberry Hunter chest armor is available for 23 shards. You can get the Synthoceps Titan gauntlets for 23 shards. And finally, the Skull of Dire Ahamkara Warlock helmet for 23 shards.
The Sweet Business auto rifle is is Destiny 2’s only LMG The gatling gun needs to spin up for a few moments, but once it does, it unleashes a destructive stream of terror for anyone unlucky enough to be on the other end. Titans are lucky enough to have access to the Actium War Rig chest piece that will ensure the stream of bullets lasts even longer.
Lucky Raspberry allows Hunters to chain together Arc Bolt Grenades more, and has a chance of recharging your grenade each time it deals damage. Grenades aren’t a very deadly option in Destiny 2 (unless it’s a pulse grenade), so this seems like a wasted exotic slot. There are many other better Hunter exotics that provide more usable perks. There are situations where this one may come in handy, but most times it will just be a collection piece.
Synthoceps are fun for Titans who like to get into the middle of a battle and then punch their way out, as all the best Titans are apt to do. These gauntlets will increase your melee lunge range, and increase the melee damage when surrounded, so getting out of a tight spot becomes much easier. If you’re a Titan that finds yourself getting into crowds of enemies, you’ll want to get your fists into these gauntlets.
Skull of Dire Ahamkara will increase defense will casting Nova Bomb, so it’s unlikely to be shot out of midair. It also grants additional super energy on Nova Bomb kills, so it’s useful for Warlocks who like to run the void subclass. While there are plenty of better exotic items to choose for Warlocks, the chance that sandbox updates make this one useful is high, so it’s good to add to the collection.
This week, Bungie detailed some major changes coming to Destiny 2’s economy to make the endgame feel more rewarding. With Curse of Osiris coming out next week, Destiny 2 servers are down this morning, so you’ll have to wait to buy your items from Xur. After December 12, Xur will be changing, offering some additional items for sale. We’ve also got a series of Destiny 2 guides, including an endgame guide for after the campaign, a step-by-step Raid guide, and a guide on how to trigger all heroic public events.
