It’s that time again, Destiny 2 folks: Xur is back.
Xur has returned this week to Destiny 2, and his Exotic cargo this week features two sets of leg armor, gauntlets, and a submachine gun.
His inventory this week is almost identical to the week of March 22. We had to do a double take to make sure we didn’t travel back in time.
You can find the fella hanging out this week on Io hanging around Giant Scar.
Even if you aren’t interested in his wares, be sure to pick up the latest Invitation of the Nine. There’s only two invitation left after this week’s The Tower.
You will notice this week’s Invitation is once again The Tower, because there’s currently an issue which Bungie is aware of. The Vex aren’t present in the Tangled Shore and therein lies the issue with the Strike this week. Bungie said a fix is coming next week with update 2.2.2, which means you have extra time to complete it.
Without further chatter, here’s what’s on offer until the reset.
Xur inventory for May 3-6
- Antaeus Wards [Exotic Titan Leg Armor]– 23 Legendary Shards
- Contraverse Hold [Exotic Warlock Gauntlets] – 23 Legendary Shards
- Gemini Jester [Exotic Hunter Leg Armor] – 23 Legendary Shards
- The Huckleberry [Exotic Submachine gun] – 29 Legendary Shards
- Five of Swords [Challenge Card]
The Huckleberry is the Exotic Weapon this week.
The Exotic Weapon this week is The Huckleberry, an SMG released with the Warmind Expansion. Like other Exotics in the game, a Masterwork Catalyst slot can be filled. It’s a pretty great weapon, and one we highly recommend.
Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter – Invitations of the Nine
In addition to his Exotic inventory, Xur’s offering a quest item for you to complete each week, for up to nine weeks. Each week you’ll be invited to learn more about the Nine and unlock lore pages.
This questline is called Invitations of the Nine and tasks you with completing weekly bounties. Here’s a complete guide to past invitations.
To get started, pick up his weekly Invitation which becomes the Into the Unknown bounty. This week, the Invitation is The Tower and will cost you nine shards.
You will need to collect metaphysical samples from defeated enemies on the Tangled Shore. To do this, you will need to finish the Hollowed Lair Strike and complete the following objectives:
Invitation – The Tower – Objectives
- Collect nine Hive sample
- Collect nine Scorn samples
- Collect nine Vex samples
- Complete the Hollowed Lair strike
Remember: if you do not complete your invitation by Tuesday at reset, you will be unable to acquire a new invitation that week.
