Where Xur’s Location Is in Destiny 2 for October 19-21
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. 19-21) Xur can be located on The Tower, in the hangar nearby Dead Orbit’s hangout.
What is Xur Selling (Oct 19-21)
Xur is selling the Crimson primary Hand Cannon. This is an extremely powerful Hand Cannon that is solid in both PvP and PvE. However it shines most in PvE as that’s where you’ll the most use out of its exotic perks. The Crimson heals you on kills, and with headshot kills, will fully reload the magazine so you can keep shooting. Great for clearing out packs of weak enemies. The cost is 29 Legendary Shards.
For Titans, Xur is selling Ashen Wake, the exotic gauntlets. This one is a little bland unless you really like Fusion Grenades. If you’re a big fan of Fusion Grenades though, feel free to give it a try and see if you like exotic perk if them exploding on contact. The cost is 23 Legendary Shards.
Hunters get The Dragon’s Shadow. The Dragon’s Shadow chest armor allows dodging to reload all your weapons, and increases movement and weapon handling time. This is a solid PvP exotic armor to consider, especially if you like getting up close and personal with a shotgun or something like it. The cost is 23 Legendary Shards.
Finally, Warlocks have Crown of Tempests for sale. This is one for Stormcallers. Arc ability kills will increase the recharge rate of Arc abilities and make your Stormtrance ability last longer. The cost is 23 Legendary Shards. The cost is 23 Legendary Shards.
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.
