Where Is Xur? Destiny 2: Forsaken Xur Location And Exotic Items Guide (Oct. 5-8)

Bungie has announced a number of Destiny 2 updates on the way, but the one thing that’s the same as always is the mysterious merchant Xur. He’s back once again to peddle his wares, which include the usual assortment of Exotic gear. Here’s what he’s selling this weekend, as well as where to find him.

This week, Xur continues his pattern of appearing in his same old locations. You’ll find him right now on Io, in the Giant’s Scar region. Spawn in at the landing zone, hop on your Sparrow, and make your way forward through an overpass. Head left in the wide-open area with the large drill and then jump up the small hill on the left of this area. You’ll find Xur hiding out in a cave, as you can see in the map below.

On the item side, he has a standard assortment of gear: one Exotic weapon and one Exotic piece of armor for each class, as well as the expensive Fated Engram (which guarantees you a Year One Exotic you don’t already own). The weapon is Skyburner’s Oath, a scout rifle that fires explosive slugs. There have been complaints about scout rifle damage in PvE, but that’s set to change with an update this month.

For armor, Hunters get the Young Ahamkara’s Spine gauntlets, which improve Tripmines when you deal damage with abilities. Warlocks get the Skull of Dire Ahamkara helmet, which gives you Super energy when you get kills with Nova Bomb. And Titans get the Helm of Saint-14 helmet, which causes Ward of Dawn to blind enemies and grant an overshield to friendlies. The full lineup and prices follow below.

  • Skyburner’s Oath (Exotic scout rifle) — 29 Legendary Shards
  • Young Ahamkara’s Grasp (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) — 23 Legendary Shards
  • Skull of Dire Ahamkara (Exotic Warlock helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards
  • Helm of Saint-14 (Exotic Titan helmet) — 23 Legendary Shards

You’ll be able to pick up these items between now and the weekly reset on Tuesday, October 9. One week later, Festival of the Lost will debut alongside a new patch, version 2.0.4.
