Destiny 2 Xur location and items, Sept. 18-22

The weekly Exotic item merchant, Xur, hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny. In Destiny 2, he can appear all over the map, as well as inside the Tower. This week, you can find Xur on Io, taking shelter in a cave next to the drill in the Giant’s Scar.

Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:

  • Riskrunner, Arc submachine gun: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Young Ahamkara’s Spine, Hunter arms: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Wormgod Caress, Titan arms: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Apotheosis Veil, Warlock helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)

Xur’s inventory caps out at 1050.

Riskrunner

Riskrunner is an interesting Exotic, although it’s rarely useful. Be sure to check your vault before you buy, as this is one of the few Exotics that Asher offers to you during the campaign.

The exotic perk, Arc Conductor, causes any Arc damage you take to empower your weapon. While Arc Conductor is active, you’ll take reduced Arc damage. This plays in well to its other perk, Superconductor, which causes the bullets fired to chain lightning between enemies when empowered with Arc Conductor, as well as fire endlessly without reloading. Killing enemies while Arc Conductor is active resets the timer.

If you can find a situation where taking Arc Damage is frequent, like the end encounter on the Exodus Crash strike, Riskrunner can be one of the most powerful Exotics in the game. Without incoming Arc damage, this gun is essentially just a normal SMG, although still powerful. If you don’t have Riskrunner, you need to pick it up.

Young Ahamkara’s Spine

Young Ahamkara’s Spine is fairly unremarkable as far as Exotics go. Its main perk, Wish-Dragon Teeth, increases the length and blast radius of your tripmine grenades, and returns energy to your grenade slot when you damage enemies with abilities. This is situational at best in PvP and almost useless in PvE.

A situational PvP exotic doesn’t cut it when Hunters already have very good PvP catch-alls like the Foetracer helmet — although some Hunters swear by the more powerful grenade. If you’re trying collect all of the exotics and you’re missing these, Young Ahamkara’s Spine is for you.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 60 total stats.

Wormgod Caress

Wormgod Caress is actually a campaign Exotic from Warmind, so almost everyone should have it, as long as they’ve beaten Xol with a Titan. Its exotic perk is Burning Fists, which causes melee kills to increase melee damage for a period of time. You can extend the duration of this effect with more melee kills.

These gauntlets are great if you enjoy playing up close. If you don’t have them yet, buy Wormgod Caress from Xur this week.

Apotheosis Veil

Apotheosis Veil is a returning exotic to Destiny 2, re-added in the Warmind expansion. When activating your Super, your health, grenade, Rift, and melee energy will all instantly refill. Nearby allies also regenerate some of their class ability energy. This helmet is fine at best. There are so many good Warlock exotics out there that we’re honestly unsure when this helmet would ever be your best bet.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 63 total stats.
