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 Graviton Lance Pulse Rifle for 29 shards. The Young Ahamkara’s Spine Hunter gauntlets are available for 23 shards. You can get the Mask of the Quiet One Titan helmet for 23 shards. And finally, the Nezarec’s Sin Warlock helmet for 23 shards.
Destiny 2 Xur Location, Inventory for Nov 3-Nov 6, 2017
The Graviton Lance Pulse Rifle is quite a fun weapon, but one that many players already have, especially if you already played the game with three characters. It is one of the three weapon options offered during the campaign. This pulse does additional damage on the third shot in each burst, as well as making any enemies killed with the weapon explode. If you aren’t running three characters, it’s worth picking one up, as it’s simply a fun and useful pulse, even if it’s not extremely powerful.
Young Ahamkara’s Spine is a returning exotic from the first game, and will allow tripmine grenades to stay around for longer. It also marks any enemies damaged by the grenade blast, so it’s good for stealthily setting traps and finishing enemies off after they are injured. Grenades in Destiny 2 are far weaker than the first game though (except for pulse grenades), so this exotic is relatively useless, and only performs under very specific conditions.
Mask of the Quiet One is a great all-purpose exotic helmet, with a bonus for running a void subclass. Anytime you are damaged, it will grant additional melee, grenade, and class ability energy, so getting hurt actually decreases your cooldown times. In addition, any kills with void abilities will trigger health regeneration, so it helps make the Sentinel even more powerful. This is definitely worth picking up if you don’t have one yet.
Nezarec’s Sin is an amazing helmet for void/devour Warlocks. Any void-damage kills–including those from void weapons–will increase the ability energy recharge rate. Combine this with the devour skill tree and you’ll be refilling grenades, melees, and rifts, all while regenerating your health. Especially useful if Nightfall modifiers increase ability recharge too.
Bungie has announced a series of endgame changes coming soon to Destiny 2, along with releasing a trailer for the coming expansion, Curse of Osiris. 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.
