Bungie’s purveyor of Exotic wares and face obfuscation enthusiast, Xur, has returned once again for another visit in Destiny 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. As this week’s Flashpoint is on Io, that’s where you’ll find him with a new set of Exotic gear for sale, including a weapon that was added in Curse of Osiris.
Reaching Xur is relatively easy. Head to Io and spawn at the Giant’s Scar Landing Zone. From there, hop on your Sparrow and follow the path through the building just to the right of where you spawn. Take it to the left when you exit the building, and you’ll be able to head just off the road ahead to enter a cave, where Xur has taken up residence from now until the weekly reset on February 13.
In terms of items, he has one piece of Exotic gear for each class: Titan, Warlock, and Hunter. All of it is gear from the base game, so you won’t need to own the Curse of Osiris DLC expansion in order to acquire it. However, that’s not the case with Xur’s one weapon, the Exotic Scout Rifle The Jade Rabbit. The unique effect with this gun is The Fate of All Fools, which lets you fire body shots in order to gain bonus damage with your next precision shot (and return ammo directly into the magazine). Here’s everything he has for sale:
- The Jade Rabbit (Exotic Scout Rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Raiden Flux (Exotic Hunter Chest Armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Synthoceps (Exotic Titan Gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Karnstein Armlets (Exotic Warlock Gauntlets) 23 Legendary Shards
- Three of Coins — 31 Legendary Shards
- Fated Engram — 97 Legendary Shards
As always, besides the specific pieces of gear, Xur offers the Three of Coins, which increases your odds of securing an Exotic item drop for four hours. You can also pick up a Fated Engram, which–while pricey–guarantees to decrypt into an Exotic you don’t already own.
Following this appearance by Xur, Bungie will kick off Destiny 2’s first Crimson Days event to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This primarily consists of a unique 2v2 Crucible mode that encourages players to stay close to their partners. It also introduces a bunch of new items that you can obtain both by playing this Crucible mode and by simply leveling up (provided you’ve reached the level cap). Beyond that, Bungie has a ton of other new changes on the way to Destiny 2, following the recent addition of Masterwork armor and Raid armor perks.
