Where Xur’s Location Is in Destiny 2 for October 5-7
Every week Guardians ask themselves the same question: Where is Xur? Xur’s location in Destiny 2 is short lived mystery that is destined to be solved.
Destiny 2 sees the return of Xur, the traveling merchant/servant of the Nine. Each week he brings exotic weapons and armor to the denizens of Destiny 2. You’ll always get a choice of an exotic weapon, and then one piece of exotic armor for each of the three in-game classes, Titan, Warlock and Hunter.
Xur can appear in variety of different locations each week. He can either appear conveniently, safely, and sensibly in the Tower in the Hangar.
Or sometimes, for reasons as unknown as his true purpose, he can visit some of the other far more dangerous locales in Destiny 2 such as Io, the EDZ, Nessus, and Titan.
Xur accepts currency in the form of Legendary Shards. Legendary Shards can be obtained by dismantling legendary gear by examining your equipment and then pressing X/Square to break it down into shards.
The best way to get Legendary Shards in case you need them this week for Xur, is to grind out tokens that you exchange for gear that can be then broken down into shards. Crucible or Vanguard Strikes work well for this. Alternatively you can complete bounties for Spider which rewards some easy legendary gear if you have the Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion.
This weekend (Oct. 5-7) Xur can be located on Io, in the cave at the top left location in Giant’s Scar. Spawn into Giant’s Scar (Io) and head through the nearby building and hang left and then go forward until you reach the cave you’re looking for.
Xur is selling the Skyburner’s Oath exotic scout rifle. This scout rifle fires high powered slugs that explode on contact and when hip fired, it functions more as a mini-grenade launcher as the shots are lobbed towards the enemy.
It can be bothersome in PvP if in the right hands, and has value in PvE. It doesn’t necessarily excel at either, but it’s decent all around if you like it’s firing style.
For Titans, Xur is selling the Helm of Saint-14. A classic Sentinel helmet that is a must for players that like using Ward of Dawn. The exotic helmet changes Ward of Dawn to blind enemies that try strolling into your safe space.
Popping a Ward of Dawn in front of enemy spawn point is a classic clutch move.
Hunters get the Young Ahamkara’s Spine, which enhances your Tripwire Grenades. It increases the radius, duration, and damage with it helps recharge the your next one. Tripwire Grenades are a longtime favorite of Hunters. Whether it’s PvP or PvE it’s a good one, so definitely pick this one up if you find yourself using it frequently.
Finally, Warlocks get the Skull of Dire Ahamkara. This makes you almost un-killable while using your Nova Bomb. And it also makes it so that Nova Bomb kills help recharge your next Nova Bomb.
Aside from specific exotic equipment, Xur also sells a Fated Engram for a hefty price, but it guarantees you a Year One exotic that you don’t already have. Three of Coins is also for sale, which modifies your Nightfall runs for better score.
That does it for where is Xur in Destiny 2. Next week we’ll be sure to check in once again and see where Xur is then.
