The weekend has arrived, and that means Xur has made his latest appearance in Destiny 2. As always, he has a selection of Exotic gear for sale along with some other recent additions to his inventory. This particular lineup of items is a tad unusual, however, as all four pieces of gear he has for sale are from the Curse of Osiris DLC, which is a situation we have not seen before (and means you’ll need the DLC to buy much). Here’s where to find Xur and what he’s selling from now until the weekly reset on Tuesday, January 16.
With this week’s Flashpoint being in the EDZ, that’s also where you’ll find Xur. Specifically, he’s located in the Winding Cove. To find him, fast travel to that area’s Landing Zone, and head straight up the road in front of you. Xur is camped out next to a crashed ship up on the hillside, which you can reach by scaling the rocks just to his right.
As for what he’s selling, his newer items are again available. You can pick up a Three of Coins to boost your chances of securing an Exotic, or the expensive Fated Engram, which is guaranteed to decrypt into an Exotic you don’t already own. Otherwise, your options are four pieces of Curse of Osiris gear, including the Exotic grenade launcher The Colony. Here’s everything Xur has this week:
The Colony (Exotic grenade launcher) — 29 Legendary Shards
Mk. 44 Stand Asides (Exotic Titan leg armor) — 23 Legendary Shards
The Stag (Exotic Warlock helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
Fated Engram — 97 Legendary Shards
Three of Coins — 31 Legendary Shards
Before picking up the Three of Coins, you’ll want to be aware that there have been complaints about how it works. Players have expressed frustration with the boost to Exotic drops that it provides, as well as lack of clear communication about what it’s supposed to do. Bungie addressed how the Three of Coins works last month and admitted there is a problem with their use in Heroic Strikes. A fix for that is on the way.
More recently, Bungie outlined a huge number of changes coming to Destiny 2. In addition to clarifying what content will be free versus paid, it also announced the return of Faction Rally, Eververse changes, quality-of-life improvements, and a long-term roadmap that includes the release of Masterwork armor.
