It’s weekend 2 for Xur, which means that a lot of the mystery surrounding the exotic armor and weapon vendor has worn off. Now, Destiny 2 players know that Xur’s location appears right on the map, and he only sells his basic items (i.e. 3 exotic armor pieces and 1 weapon).
Still, since it is very early for Destiny 2’s life cycle, there are plenty of exotics left for Xur to sell to either benefit players in their endgame activities or help them complete their collections. Chances are most hardcore players have a healthy selection of exotic weapons and armor already, thanks to the very generous drop rates in the game, but we’d venture to guess there are a few items on every players’ wish list.
This weekend, Destiny 2 players can find Xur on Titan, in The Rig area. Most should be plenty familiar with Titan, as it was this week’s Flashpoint destination. Locating Xur is a fairly easy task, and will be for the foreseeable future. Simply track him on the map and then follow the marker on the HUD to his location.
Exotic Armor Recommendations
Xur’s exotic armor choices this week include the ACD/0 Feedback Fence gauntlets for Titans, the Foetracer helmet for Hunters, and the Sunbracers gauntlets for Warlocks. Of the three armor pieces, the Hunter helmet is easily the best option in either PvP or PvE. For PvP, the helmet is great because it marks targets and helps players follow their movements behind walls. And for PvE, the helmet helps on boss DPS, by giving the wearer increased damage as its target decreases in health.
The Titan and Warlock gauntlets are both Destiny 1 exotics so a lot of players should be very familiar with them. The ACD/0 gauntlets send out an arc charge if the Titan his hit by melee, which is nice for scenarios where the player is overwhelmed. And the Sunbracers are a decent option for the Dawnblade Warlock thanks to their ability to make solar grenades last longer.
Xur’s Exotic Weapon
Xur is 2-for-2 with top level exotic weapons, as this week he has the Wardcliff Coil rocket launcher for sale. Previously known as the Dubious Volley, the Wardcliff Coil is great for clearing out large groups of enemies, firing a large group of tiny rockets instead of one big payload. It also reloads anytime the player picks up Power Ammo, which helps keep the DPS high.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- ACD/0 Feedback Fence (Titan Gauntlets) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Foetracer (Hunter Helmet) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Sunbracers (Warlock Gauntlets) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Wardcliff Coil (Rocket Launcher) – 29 Legendary Shards
Destiny 2 is available now for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version releases on October 24th.
