Destiny 2: Xur Exotic Armor and Weapon Breakdown

Destiny 2: Xur Exotic Armor and Weapon Breakdown

It’s the last Xur appearance in Destiny 2 before Christmas, which means an opportunity to add to your exotic armor and weapon collection. But will the Agent of the Nine have anything good for sale or will it be coal in our stockings this year?

This week, Destiny 2 players can find Xur on Titan in the Rig section. He’s tucked inside a small room in the Eastern portion of the patrol area, so make sure to track him on the map to ensure you don’t miss him.

Unfortunately, this week’s Xur inventory is anything but a gift for Destiny 2 players, unless they missed out on something during the campaign. He has the Lucky Pants boots for Hunters, the Doom Fang Pauldron gauntlets for Titans, and the Wings of Sacred Dawn chest piece for Warlocks.

All three of these exotic armor pieces are for sale to their respective classes during the Destiny 2 campaign, but not everyone chose them. So there are likely players that need them, but the fact Xur isn’t selling anything from the Curse of Osiris DLC’s loot table is sure to be disappointing.

That trend continues for Xur’s exotic weapon, which is the Riskrunner submachine gun. Riskrunner is a useful PvE weapon because it gives players “unlimited ammo” for a short time after taking damage, but again it was available for free during the campaign.

Xur also has a new Fated Engram for players to pick up and unlock an exotic weapon or armor piece that they do not currently own. Some players with nearly all of the exotics in the game reported last week that they got duplicates, but most said they got something new.

Unfortunately, Xur’s other “new” item, the Three of Coins, is not helping players acquire any new exotics. While Bungie has confirmed that the consumable is bugged when tied to Heroic Strike completion, Three of Coins’ use on any other activity does not seem to be boosting the exotic engram drop rate enough to be noticeable. Most players can go the full 4 hours after using a Three of Coins and never see a single exotic drop. In other words, save your legendary shards until Bungie buffs drop rates.

For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:

  • Doom Fang Pauldron (Titan Gauntlets) – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Lucky Pants (Hunter Boots) – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Wings of Sacred Dawn (Warlock Chest Piece) – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Riskrunner (Submachine Gun) – 29 Legendary Shards
  • Fated Engram – 97 Legendary Shards
  • Three of Coins – 31 Legendary Shards

Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
