Xur 'Destiny' Location This Week, May 1 To 3: Exotic Gear Includes Ruin Wings & Hard Light Auto Rifle

By Matthew Buzzi , Updated May 01, 2015 09:52 AM EDT

The weekend has arrived, meaning mysterious Destiny merchant Xûr is back, as well. The vendor is the only one in the game to sell exotic weapons, and every week is different than the last.

This week Xûr is in the Hall of Guardians today, down the main staircase and in the back Vanguard room to the right. He's in a new location from one week to the next, and his stock differs every time. Xûr appears on Friday (4 a.m. Eastern) and departs overnight between Saturday and Sunday.

The Best Legendary Weapons In Destiny Across Each Gun Type

Xûr always sells three exotic armor pieces--one for each class--and an exotic weapon. Since The Dark Below's release, Xûr also offers an Exotic Shard, which is needed to upgrade Exotic weapons to their final tier, and he's selling an Exotic Gauntlet Engram. Here's the gear on sale this weekend:

Titan Armor: Ruin Wings Gauntlets

Hunter Armor: Don't Touch Me Gauntlets

Warlock Armor: Heart of the Praxic Fire Chest Armor

Exotic Weapon: Hard Light Auto Rifle

In post-The Dark Below Destiny, Xûr has a selection of items to upgrade in addition to his normal wares--the new list you see in his inventory is not simply gear for sale. You need the original weapon or armor piece to trade in for an upgrade, an Exotic Shard, and some Glimmer--this is meant to keep original exotics gained before the expansion relevant and up to par with the new gear.

Here's what you can upgrade this weekend: Knucklehead Radar, Young Ahamkara's Spine, An Insurmountable Skullfort, Crest of Alpha Lupi, Heart of the Praxic Fire, Voidfang Vestments, Bad Juju, Red Death, MIDA Multi-Tool, Invective, Plan C, Pocket Infinity.
