Xur has returned again to Destiny 2, complete with new exotic and legendary gear for players to check out for a limited time. In the meantime, things got a little spooky at the Tower this week as the annual Halloween inspired Festival of the Lost event finally made its return. Haunted Lost Sectors and Headless Ones have again invaded the game and it’s up to players to don their various masks and collect candy to stop them.


Unfortunately, the big Festival of the Lost also introduced more than a few bugs, though unrelated to the spooky season. This includes high priority problems such as spectral pages not manifesting as expected, essentially blocking the Gone but Not Forgotten quest entirely. Bungie has quickly updated the game to resolve a lot of these issues, but Destiny 2 fans continue to run into issues including cosmetic related quirks as well as bright dust not being fully awarded for certain bounties.

In addition to collecting candy, players can also visit the weekend merchant Xur who has arrived again in Destiny 2 for a limited time. Follow this guide for his most current weekend location, news on his exotic cipher quest, as well as a review of all the exotic and legendary gear he’s brought for the weekend of October 21, 2022.


Where is Xur?

This weekend, players should head to will need to head to the Winding Cove in the European Dead Zone.

Fast travel to the Winding Cove zone and immediately head towards the back where the Fallen typically patrol. Climb the cliffs back here to find Xur standing on a ledge not too far from a crashed ship.

Class Armor and Exotic Cipher

Xur’s role continues to offer the usual weekly quests, exotics, and legendary gear. Not only are these quests required to purchase a second fated engram, but they’re necessary to acquire legacy exotic gear from the Tower kiosk. Players can earn a new cipher by completing strikes and winning crucible or gambit matches. Gain bonus points for playing with clan mates or finishing more challenging activities.

Xur continues to sell even more gear outside his usual content. In addition to his normal exotic gear, Xur now has Legendary Weapons and Armor for sale in exchange for Legendary Shards and Glimmer.

Exotic Armor

Karnstein Armlets – Warlock gauntlets

These are a strong Warlock exotic item, that gives the player added survivability thanks to its exotic perk. Upon a melee kill, Vampire’s Caress restores a large portion of health while also continuing to restore health for a short duration afterward.

This is an item that all Warlocks should have as it’s a very strong item in PvE situations and activities like Gambit or Blind Well where there are large groups of enemies to overcome. There are much better options for PvP players, but it can be a fun exotic to play around with otherwise. Even coming in at a very impressive 67 total, the strange aspect to this exotic is the roll itself. An extremely high mobility is unfortunately a stat that isn’t a priority for Warlocks, so this one isn’t a priority this week.

Void Enhanced. Stat Values:

  • Mobility +24
  • Resilience +3
  • Recovery +7
  • Discipline +23
  • Intellect +8
  • Strength +2

Fr0st-EE5 – Hunter gauntlets

Known by most in the community as “Frosties”, they come with the Rapid Cooldown perk which increases ability regeneration rate when the player sprints, while dodging also increases sprint speed. For missions that require lots of movement, these boots pair well with particular subclasses that rely on melee abilities such as throwing knives for Solar Gunslingers.

Being able to recharge the throwing knives by killing burning enemies as well as sprinting makes it, so the Hunter has a nearly unlimited supply as long as they hit and kill the target. The roll this week is pretty solid across the board, also coming in at a 67 total. Unfortunately, the exotics themselves really are not high on the Hunter exotic list. They have their uses, but players are probably not using these over certain others at the moment, so they can safely be skipped.

Arc Enhanced. Stat Values:

  • Mobility +14
  • Resilience +9
  • Recovery +11
  • Discipline +2
  • Intellect +10
  • Strength +21

Ursa Furiosa – Titan gauntlets

At one point, these were the go-to exotic for Sentinel Titans, though things have changed over the past year or so. Ultimately, these were heavily impactedd by Bungie’s decision to nerf super generating exotics that arrived alongside Season of the Lost.

Regardless, Ursine Guard is the intrinsic perk which enables the player to move faster when guarding with Sentinel Shield. However, the best part of this perk is that blocked damage will convert into additional super energy once the super ends, similar to other class exotics like the Shards of Galanor for Hunters. As previously mentioned, the returned energy has a cap now, so it’s not nearly as useful as it was previously. The unfortunate part of this exotic is with the stats, which prioritize mobility, not something associated with Titans. The total roll is also the lowest of the three at 62, so these are safe to skip for those not trying to complete their collections.

Void Enhanced. Stat Values:

  • Mobility +21
  • Resilience +4
  • Recovery +6
  • Discipline +14
  • Intellect +6
  • Strength +11

Exotic Weapon

The Arbalest is a weapon that hasn’t been seen with Xur in a very long time, and considering that it’s a very popular weapon, this will likely be a big pickup for many. A kinetic linear fusion rifle that was introduced during the Revelry event in 2019, Arbalest called Compounding Force that makes the weapon fire slugs that cause massive damage to enemies that are protected by an elemental shield. Paired with that is the Legendary trait Disruption Break which temporarily makes enemies more vulnerable to kinetic damage when an elemental shield is broken. It’s also automatically a great choice to pierce Barrier champions without having to apply a mod.

It’s not a hard weapon to recommend, so for players that don’t have one, this is a strong pickup this weekend.

Additional perks:

  • Extended Barrel
  • Projection Fuse
  • Composite Stock

Hawkmoon and Dead Man’s Tale Rolls

Since Season 16 removed the Presage and Harbinger exotic missions, Xur is also selling both Hawkmoon and Dead Man’s Tale with randomized rolls. Players should visit him each weekend as he’ll be carrying different rolls.

Hawkmoon Rolls:

  • Extended Barrel
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Hip-Fire Grip
  • Heavy Grip

  • Extended Barrel
  • Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Killing Wind
