‘Destiny’: Xur Location and Gear September 23-25



Now that Rise of Iron has been officially released upon the world it’s time for our old friend Xur to make his return, however, this week he brought something special for Warlocks. Xur is actually not located in the new hub world Iron Tower, due to that locking a lot of players out from actually going to see him. Instead, you can find Xur this week at The Reef so make sure to spawn there if you want to grab the new loot. When you load into this area take a right down the staircase and you should see Xur on the lower level in one of the open side rooms.

This week he has brought some Rise of Iron loot for the Warlocks, along with some genuinely solid weapons and armor. In addition to his usual gear, you can also purchase two Weapon Ornaments from him for the price of 25 Silver Dust a piece. The two designs this week are Superspy for the Monte Carlo and Bureau of Aeronautics for the Khvostov 7G-0X. There is also a Legacy Gauntlet Engram in case you were looking to try and fill out your collection of Year 1 exotics.

Twilight Garrison

  • Roll: Intellect/Discipline
  • Armor: Chest Piece
  • Cost: 13 Strange Coins
  • Unique Perk: You can evade while in the air.

The Twilight Garrison is one of the best exotics for PvP minded players. Giving the Titan an ability to dodge out of the way is incredibly valuable and can certainly save your life. However, you can also use this special ability to close the gap between you and your enemies. There’s a lot of neat tricks you can pull off with this exotic in the Crucible so make sure to grab this if you don’t own it. In terms of PvE there are better choices, as the dodge doesn’t come into play nearly as much when fighting against the A.I.

Celestial Nighthawk

  • Roll: Intellect/Strength
  • Armor: Helmet
  • Cost: 13 Strange Coins
  • Unique Perk: Golden Gun fires one shot with 6x damage, while granting Keyhole for overpenetration.

It’s like Bungie wants us to farm the Omnigul Strike for loot. This exotic is a fantastic choice for the PvE minded Guardian who is looking to add a bit more punch to their Golden Gun shot. While this ability never really factors into PvP, it’s a great pickup for those who like to use the Gunslinger class in Strikes or even the raids. It also should be noted that the Celestial Nighthawk is a must have for those looking to farm Omnigul for high-end loot.

Transversive Steps

  • Roll: Discipline/Strength
  • Armor: Leg
  • Cost: 13 Strange Coins
  • Unique Perk: Faster movement speed while crouching. Ammo pickups automatically reload that weapon type.

This brand new exotic from Rise of Iron is certainly interesting, though it’s had to truly tell the breath of its capabilities since it just released. Yet, if you are a Warlock and looking to run the raid this weekend I would suggest grabbing these. Given we know one section has us running for our lives being able to auto reload your weapons could save you some precious seconds while on the move. I will be picking these up myself, so make sure to snag your own pair of fancy, glowing boots.

Monte Carlo

  • Primary Weapon: Auto Rifle
  • Cost: 23 Strange Coins
  • Unique Perk: Dealing damage with this weapon reduces your melee cooldown and grants a chance to fully charge your melee with each kill.

If you are looking for a generally strong all around weapon look no further than the Monte Carlo. This is a very powerful gun for both PvE and PvP thanks to the benefit of constantly resetting your melee ability. If you run a very close quarters focused build such as a Voidwalker or Striker then this can help push your build over the edge. Plus, Xur is selling an Exotic Ornament for the gun so you can trick it out before taking it out into the field.

It’s important to note that all of the gear from Xur will be sold at 350 Light, which means he can help rank you us if you’re struggling. Even if you have these exotics, it might be worth buying one or two for the sake of infusing them into your current gear. Now get out there Guardians and good luck to all of those running the Wrath of the Machine raid today.
