If you played Destiny, you may be familiar with Xur, the weekly exotic item merchant. In Destiny 2, he’s back, and he can now appear all over the map. This week, he’s near the Giant’s Scar fast travel point on Io, and there’s a helpful icon on the planet map to show you where he is.
Watch the above video for a quick review of Xur’s inventory this week, which consists of the following:
- Riskrunner, submachine gun: 29 Legendary Shards
- Mechaneer's Tricksleeves, Hunter gloves: 23 Legendary Shards
- Hallowfire Heart, Titan chest piece: 23 Legendary Shards
- Transversive Steps, Warlock boots: 23 Legendary Shards
Each of the items comes at a maximum power level of 270 — a base power of 265, plus a Legendary (purple) mod that raises the value by five. This scales to your player’s power level, so make sure you’re buying Xur exotics on your highest level character.
The Mechaneer’s Tricksleeves are impressively underwhelming as an exotic, and we’d advise Hunters to save your shards this week. The Transversive Steps for Warlock are great in a few encounters in the raid that require quick movement, and can be a good pick in the Countdown Crucible mode to quickly rush a bomb site. Riskrunner, with its automatic reload and chaining effect, can be a ton of fun in the right situation.
