It’s the weekend in Destiny 2, and it’s time to party with the special snake-faced weekend vendor, Xur. That means grabbing an Invitation of the Nine, and purchasing some Exotic weapons and armor from the Agent of the Nine to fill out your collection.
Head out to Titan to find Xur this week-he’s hanging out on The Rig. Head to the north end of the platform and check inside a low building near its edge to find him. This week, you can pick up D.A.R.C.I., a sniper rifle that offers a bunch of targeting perks. Its Personal Assistant gives you information about enemies when you aim at them through the gun’s scope, and using the perk gives you better target acquisition and extra precision damage.
While there was a dearth of Forsaken Exotics in Xur’s bag last week, this week is a little less disappointing. Hunters can grab the Gwisin Vest chest armor from Forsaken, which gives back Super energy for the kills you make with Spectral Blades in between activating the Super’s invisibility. For Titans, there’s the Antaeus Wards leg armor, another Forsaken Exotic. The boots let you reflect incoming projectiles when sliding, and using the reflection perk gives you Super energy. Warlocks aren’t as lucky-they’re stuck with Winter’s Guile from the Year One collection, which boosts your melee damage for every melee kill you rack up.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they’ll cost you:
- D.A.R.C.I. (Exotic sniper rifle) – 29 Legendary Shards
- Antaeus Wards (Exotic Titan leg armor) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Gwisin Vest (Exotic Hunter chest armor) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Winter’s Guile (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) – 23 Legendary Shards
You can also buy a Fated Engram, if you can afford it. Dropping 97 Legendary Shards on the item will grant you one Year One Exotic you don’t already have for that character. Xur also offers the Five of Swords challenge card for free, which allows you to add difficulty modifiers that increase your score in Nightfall runs.
Xur brings another Invitation of the Nine this week, a weekly bounty that gives you a Powerful gear drop, a bit of story about the Nine, and a new Lore entry. If you’ve been keeping up each week, this one will send you to Io to complete The Pyramidion strike. You’ll also need to kill Cabal, Taken, and Vex enemies.
