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 Titan.Fast travel to The Rig and head left to find Xur just inside one of the rooms. You’ll have to drop down a couple of levels as you head towards him. You can mark his location on your map. This week, Xur is selling the Hard Light Auto Rifle for 29 shards. The Lucky Raspberry Hunter chest armor is available for 23 shards. You can get Synthoceps Titan gauntlets for 23 shards. And finally, the Karnstein Armlets Warlock gauntlets for 23 shards.
Hard Light is a fun auto rifle that allows you to change up which element it shoots. Rounds fired from Hard Light have no damage falloff at all, so it’s great to use at a distance and maintain maximum damage. The rounds also penetrate targets and ricochet, causing more mayhem. , Once you can learn to control the little recoil it has, it’s a deadly choice for an energy exotic.
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.
Karnstein Armlets let the Warlock’s melee attacks grant health recovery, and melee, grenade, and class ability energy. Combining this with the Devour Warlock creates a near unstoppable force of melee power that rivals even that of the might Titan. If you’re a Warlock who feels like they want to be a Titan, these guantlets are right up your alley.
Just this week, Bungie held the first of three live streams set to reveal details about the Curse of Osiris expansion. The stream teased more about the Curse of Osiris Raid, and allowed us to finally release our playthrough of the first campaign mission. While we only showed the first mission we did manage to finish the whole campaign and provided our spoiler-free impressions of the story, location, and characters that players will encounter in 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.
