While most of the Destiny fan base is in a tizzy over the reveal of first Destiny 2 gameplay, those that are still invested in the first game have a new visitor. Xur has made his way back to the Tower, which, as we saw in the new Destiny 2 gameplay reveal trailer, is not long for this world.
This week, Destiny players can find Xur in Tower North, on the balcony next to The Speaker. It’s fitting that the Agent of the Nine would hang out near The Speaker, as it is strongly implied that the character either goes missing or is killed during the opening of Destiny 2. Perhaps Xur wants to spend what little time he has left with The Speaker.
To get to Xur, head to the left after spawning in, follow the long hallway that turns to the left, enter the large open space in Tower North, and the exotic vendor should be in the back against the railing. If you head directly straight, it should be hard to miss him.
Exotic Armor and Weapon
Xur’s exotic armor selection this weekend includes the Eternal Warrior helmet for Titans, the Skyburners Annex helmet for Hunters, and the Heart of Praxic Fire chest piece for Warlocks. All three are on the lower end as far as worthwhile exotic choices for their classes, but the Hunter and Titan helmets do have a unique look about them. The Eternal Warrior is especially interesting because it gives Titans an even more soldier-like look, even if its exotic perks aren’t the best.
On the weapon side, Xur has the Bad Juju pulse rifle for sale, a popular choice for Sunsingers trying to solo end game Destiny content. Because Bad Juju’s exotic perk helps players gain Super energy faster it typically gives Sunsingers their self-rez ability before any team-wiping action. For example, players that try to solo Oryx in King’s Fall sometimes use Bad Juju to ensure they survive the boss’ “clap” move, which kills everything in its wake.
Bad Juju is also a decent PvP pulse rifle, although there are some others (Hawksaw, PDX) that are a little better. Again, though, the increased super energy drain is hard to beat in some instances.
Weapon Bundle and Prices
Xur’s exotic weapon bundles this weekend are the MIDA Multi-Tool scout rifle and its Arctic Survivalist ornament, and the Red Death pulse rifle and its White Witch ornament.
