Quick update: We’re updating this info as we find the fellow of the Nine. If the article looks threadbare, a quick F5 should result in more details
It’s a Friday! It’s just past 11 on the AM and it’s time to hunt for everybody’s favourite Agent of the Nine. Y’know, that Xur fella what sells the best guns and armour in Destiny 2. While Destiny 2 may have taken most of the legwork out of the hunt for Xur by actually showing players where he is on their mini-map (much to the anguished wailing of many a writer looking for an easy story), there are still those who are willing to get up at the crack of 10AM and boot up their console to find him for you.
People who’ll risk digital life and limb to let you know if Xur is selling a treasure or rubbish. I just so happen to be one of those people. Maybe you’re stuck at work and can only log in later tonight. In that case: Where is Xur?
This week you can find Xur on Io, in the Giant’s Scar.
Here’s what he has for sale:
- Merciless – Exotic Fusion Rife
- Lucky Pants – Exotic Hunter Pants
- Mask of the Quiet One – Exotic Titan Helmet
- Starfire Protocol – Eoxtic Warlock Chest Armour
If you like your heavy weapons in the Fusion Rifle range, then Merciless is a superb device to use against bullet-sponge bosses. Its initial charge-up may be slow, but for every hit that lands on a boss that doesn’t fall? The gap between charges starts to diminish tremendously. Like I said, great for bosses who refuse to die quickly.
For the uninitiated, Xur has been around since the beginning of Destiny. He’s the guy you go to, when you want to get your hands on some fine Exotic arms and armour, as well as some nifty consumables. Usually popping up from 11AM CET, Xur hangs around until Monday. Destiny 1 saw Xur accept Strange Coins as his currency of choice, although he’ll be trading for Legendary Shards this time around. Shards which can be obtained by dismantling Legendary and Exotic gear in case you’re short on them.
