The weekly Exotic item merchant, Xur, hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny. In Destiny 2, he can appear all over the map, as well as inside the Tower. This week, you can find Xur on Nessus, standing on a big tree in Watcher’s Grave.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- Graviton Lance, Void pulse rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
- Oathkeeper, Hunter arms: 23 Legendary Shards
- Ursa Furiosa, Titan arms: 23 Legendary Shards
- Lunafaction Boots, Warlock legs: 23 Legendary Shards
- Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)
- Exotic Cipher quest: free
As of Season of the Lost, Xur also sells a collection of old armor and weapons — similar to Banshee-44 and Ada-1. Usually, these items are difficult to find and from seasons long past. Each item (whether armor or weapon) costs only 1,000 Glimmer and 50 Legendary Shards.
Xur’s Legendary inventory this week consists of the following:
- Dire Promise, hand cannon
- Last Perdition, Void pulse rifle
- Cold Denial, pulse rifle
- Main Ingredient, Arc fusion rifle
- Ikelos_SR_V1.0.2, Solar sniper rifle
- Temptation’s Hook, Arc sword
- Bottom Dollar, Void hand cannon
- Mercury armor set
Xur’s items drop at a similar power level as your character.
Graviton Lance’s Exotic perk is Black Hole, which causes the gun to only fire two bullets: one with low damage and the other with high damage. The second perk, Cosmology, causes kills with Graviton Lance to make the enemy explode and spawn void missiles that seek targets. This can cause a chain reaction of explosions, which can be extremely powerful in certain situations.
Graviton Lance has been one of Destiny 2’s best and worst Exotics at different points. Currently, it’s not great, but you never know when the scales will tip again — plus it’s a super unique weapon, no matter how powerful it is. If you don’t have Graviton Lance, grab it from Xur this week.
Oathkeeper is a set of Exotic gauntlets from Forsaken. Its Exotic perk is Adamantine Brace, which lets you hold arrows at the perfect draw timing forever. These gauntlets have limited uses, but they’re perfect pickups for players who just want to run around and use bows in every activity. Bows have a sweet spot as soon as the arrow is ready. It’s called a perfect draw, and it makes the bow deal more damage or even activate unique perks. If you’re struggling to nail those, Oathkeeper will make sure you always do.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 63 total stats.
Ursa Furiosa is a set of Exotic gauntlets from Forsaken. Its Exotic perk is Ursine Guard, which refunds Super energy when you block damage with Sentinel Shield. You also move faster with Sentinel Shield active. There was a time when these Exotics were dominant, but they’ve since been nerfed into being a bit underwhelming outside of content like GM Nightfalls. If you love running Sentinel Shield, or if these gauntlets are missing from your collection, pick them up.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 61 total stats.
Lunafaction Boots are very powerful Warlock Exotic boots, and they have been since the original Destiny 2. Their Exotic perk is Alchemical Etchings. This perk grants a reload speed increase while standing in a Lunafaction-empowered Rift. This Exotic got hit hard in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, but it’s still worth using.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 65 total stats.
Exotic Cipher quest
Starting in Beyond Light, Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher. The Exotic Cipher lets you buy old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. You’ll need these items and some other currencies to pick up Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.
This week, Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches. By finishing the quest, you’ll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you want.
