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 on Nessus. Fast travel to Watcher’s Grave and head straight once you spawn in. Xur is up in the tree that you can see ahead of you.. You can mark his location on your map. This week, Xur is selling the Fighting Lion grenade launcher for 29 shards. The Knucklehead Radar Hunter helmet is available for 23 shards. You can get the Peacekeepers Titan boots for 23 shards. And finally, the Wings of Sacred Dawn Warlock chest armor for 23 shards.
The Fighting Lion grenade launcher is virtually worthless. Honestly, every single other exotic weapon would be a better choice than this one, and there are many legendary power weapons and energy werapons that outclass this grenade launcher. Grenade launchers in Destiny 2 are pretty awful anyway. I would only recommend buying this if you’re a collector and need it to complete the collection.
Knucklehead Radar is an awesome helmet that gives hunters the ability to keep their radar when aiming down sights. Many people use MIDA Multi-Tool for this very perk, and this Hunter helmet opens up other possibilities. It works with all weapons, so kinetic, energy, and power will all have radar for any Hunter wearing this helm. It’s a great Crucible helmet to be able to scope and still have situational awareness.
Peacekeepers are a fun one for people who run double submachine guns on a Titan. These boots will reload stowed SMGs and allow them to be readied instantly, so the only delay is swapping quickly back and forth between the guns. You’ll never need to reload again. I personally don’t use SMGs, but these boots can create quite a unique build for constant firepower. If you like to get in close and wreck shop (as Titans are prone to do), you’ll want to give these a shot.
Wings of Sacred Dawn will hold Warlocks suspended in the air when they aim down sights, with precision hits extending the duration. Dawnblade needs to be the equipped subclass for this perk to function, so if you tend to run anything else, this chest piece might be useless to you. This chest piece was one of the options during the story, so you may already have it.
In other Destiny 2 news, Bungie announced that the Prestige Mode Raid has been delayed to next week, and set a date to talk more about Destiny 2 seasons. They also responded to player concerns and feedback about the Destiny 2 endgame. 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.
