Destiny 2 Xur location and items, April 23-27

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 in the Tower, standing on the back stairs of the Hangar.

Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:

  • Prometheus Lens, Solar trace rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
  • Orpheus Rig, Hunter legs: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Citan’s Ramparts, Titan arms: 23 Legendary Shards
  • The Stag, Warlock helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
  • Exotic Engram: 97 Legendary Shards (you can now purchase a second with an Exotic Cipher)
  • Exotic Cipher quest: free

Xur’s items drop at a similar power level as your character.

Prometheus Lens

Prometheus Lens is an Exotic from Curse of Osiris. It used to be one of the most powerful weapons in all of Destiny 2, when a bug (now fixed) caused it to deal ludicrous damage in PvP. Prometheus Lens is still awesome for clearing out large crowds of enemies all at once.

The main perk, Prismatic Inferno, causes Prometheus Lens’ beam to grow in size the longer you hold down the trigger. This allows the trace rifle to deal considerable damage in a large area. The gun’s secondary ability, Flame Refraction, makes the first perk even better, allowing kills to return ammo back into the magazine. The more kills you get, the longer you can hold down the trigger and increase your area of damage. It’s a fun gun and definitely worth the Legendary Shards.

Orpheus Rig

Orpheus Rig can be one of the most useful Exotics in the game, even if it’s been nerfed a few times. Its main perk, Uncanny Arrows, generates additional Super energy for each enemy tethered with Shadowshot. The Moebius Quiver variant also gains more shots. With Orpheus Rig, a well-placed Hunter Super can quickly start regenerating your Super meter. This is helpful in a few different endgame scenarios, including Nightfalls and Raids. If you like Nightstalker, you have to get these legs.

Xur’s roll this week comes with 62 total stats.

Citan’s Ramparts

Citan’s Ramparts is a Titan Exotic from Season of the Worthy. Its Exotic perk is Assault Barricade, which allows you and your allies to shoot through your Towering Barricade. However, it does make your Barricade much weaker and easier to break. It also lasts for less time. This Exotic is very powerful in PvP. If you’re a sniper in Trials, it’s worth picking up.

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

The Stag

A returning Exotic from Destiny (in name and look, at least), The Stag’s Exotic perk, Dearly Departed, gives you Rift energy when you’re close to death. When you die, you’ll also drop a healing rift under your feet. This Exotic has some great stats and some interesting perks.

Perks that are only useful when you die aren’t great. However, this helmet has potential to help you learn difficult encounters, or save an ally’s life in Iron Banner.

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

Exotic Cipher quest

Starting in Beyond Light, Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher. The Exotic Cipher lets you buy old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the tower. You’ll need these items and some other currencies to pick up Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.

This week, Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches. By finishing the quest, you’ll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you want.
