It’s been a major week for Destiny, both inside and outside of the game. Destiny 2’s Niobe Labs puzzle proved too difficult, so the Bergusia Forge was unlocked manually by Bungie rather than fans. And then Bungie and Activision split up, with the former gaining full control of the franchise. Now it’s Friday, and that means Xur is ready for a visit. Here’s where to find him and what he’s selling from now until the weekly reset on January 15.
This Xur appearance is no different than any other one. This week, Xur is located in The Tower. Spawn there and head left (east on the map) until you reach the hangar. Take another left and head past the Dead Orbit area, and then head up a set of stairs on the left to find him hanging out near a landing pad.
In terms of his item lineup, Xur has the typical slate: three Exotic armor pieces (one per class) and one Exotic weapon. The weapon is the enjoyable fusion rifle Merciless, which reduces the weapon’s charge time as you fire it without securing a kill.
For armor, Hunters get the Young Ahamkara’s Spine gauntlets (damage with abilities enhances tripmines), Titans get the Doom Fang Pauldron gauntlets (improves the Sentinel Shield and grants Super energy when you get void melee kills), and Warlocks get the Crown of Tempests (arc ability kills reduce their cooldown).
- Merciless (Exotic fusion rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
- Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Doom Fang Pauldron (Exotic Titan gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
- Crown of Tempests (Exotic Warlock helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
As noted above, the Bergusia Forge is now available to Annual Pass owners, marking the final big addition of the Black Armory DLC. Development on the game will continue, and Bungie claims its plans are «unchanged,» so the previously outlined update roadmap will stay the same.
