Location and items for Destiny 2 Xur, Sept. 16-20 ...

Xur, the weekly Exotic item merchant in Destiny 2, hangs out in random locations throughout the world of Destiny. He can appear everywhere in the map, as well as inside the Tower this week, hanging out on Nessus's big tree in Watchers Grave.

This week's Xurs inventory includes the following items:

  • Two-Tailed Fox, Void rocket launcher: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Shards of Galanor, Hunter gauntlets: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Hallowfire Heart, Titan chest: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Transversive Steps, Warlock legs: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)
  • Exotic Cipher quest: free

Xur sells a random roll of Hawkmoon and Dead Mans Tale every week for Season of the Risen and The Witch Queen. Here's what he's selling this weekend:

  • Hawkmoon, Kinetic hand cannon (Paracausal Shot): 125,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary Shards, Exotic Cipher, Ascendant Shard
  • Dead Mans Tale, Kinetic scout rifle (Cranial Spike): 125,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary Shards, Exotic Cipher, Ascendant Shard

Xur sells a collection of old weapons and armor similar to Banshee-44 and Ada-1, usually difficult to find and come from seasons long past. Each item (whether armor or weapon) costs only 1,000 Glimmer and 50 Legendary Shards.

  • Imperial Needle, Void bow
  • Iota Draconis, Solar fusion rifle
  • Interference VI, Arc grenade launcher
  • Ignition Code, Kinetic grenade launcher
  • Royale Chase, Void scout rifle
  • Lonesome, Kinetic sidearm
  • Enigmas Draw, Kinetic sidearm
  • Illicit Invader armor set

Items from Xurs are dropped at a power level similar to that of your character.

Two-Tailed Fox

Two-Tailed Fox is a spooky robotic rocket launcher released in the Forsaken expansion. Its primary feature, Twintails, allows it to launch two rockets instead of one both of which follow targets. Its secondary feature is Play With Your Prey, which allows one to deflect deadly Solar damage while the other to deflect enemies with Void damage.

Two-Tailed Fox is a unique, interesting, and fun to operate product, but its quality varies largely on how good rocket launchers are in a given season. And even then, there are usually better options. So grab a Two-Tailed Fox from Xur this week.

Shards of Galanor

Following some serious tweaks, the Shards of Galanor gauntlets are a shadow of what they once were. Sharp Edges is a fantastic way to earn Super energy based on how many blades you hit with the Blade Barrage ability. The Super refund is never full, so youll never get the whole thing back.

This week, the Xurs roll comes with 63 total statistics.

Hallowfire Heart

This is a fairly situational exotic chest piece. The main benefit is Sunfire Furnace, which increases your ability's recharge rate when Hammer of Sol is charged. This exotic forces you to play Sunbreaker, which is great since it's probably the Titan class you're using due to Hammer Strike.

It takes some getting used to keep Hallowfire Heart from being a Hallowfire Exclusive. However, this is one of our favorite Titan exotics, and it can be quite powerful if you learn to use it correctly.

This week's Xurs roll includes 65 total statistics.

Transversive Steps

Transversive Steps are the Warlocks' swiftest boots, and they're a great catch-all Exotic. They come with an Exotic bonus, Strange Protractor, that increases your sprint speed and automatically reloads your energy weapons in Destiny 2. Make sure to pick them up if you haven't already.

This week's Xurs roll includes 59 total statistics.

Exotic Cipher quest

Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher in Beyond Light. Old Exotics can be purchased from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. These items and other currencies are required to purchase Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.

Xur is asking you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches this week. By finishing the quest, you'll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you like.
