It’s Friday again in Destiny 2. That means “shopping time” again for all keepers. Xur, the creepy but impressive alien brings his exotic goods to the players for the last time in Season 18, which might even be worth it this week.
What happened in Destiny 2 this week? The rumor mill starts bubbling again towards the end of Season 17. Leakers say Bungie plans to permanently remove the power level grind. You can find out here whether this will actually take place or whether it is just empty words.
In addition, Kevin Yanes, the Combat Design Lead, spoke up again. Many players once threatened him with murder when he announced that the Titans will not get their beloved Destiny 1 Exo back. Well, with Arkus 3.0 things are changing and it’s clear that Titan should have let the developer finish talking.
In addition, we have new details for Arkus 3.0. So if you want to know what new features each class will receive, you can find out more in our detailed post.
All information about Xur on August 19, 2022 – PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia
When is Xur coming? The spaghetti-faced NPC vendor currently starts selling every Friday at 7:00 p.m. sharp. Anyone who brings him some Legendary Shards and other materials to trade is then welcome to shop with him.
Where is Xur located? This is his camp for the weekend
The position of Xur: This time, too, we have to wait until the daily reset at 7 p.m. for the tentacle face to land.
- This weekend he is still in the approach.
Xur’s inventory from 19.08. – 23.08. – All exotics at a glance
What does Xur offer? As the chosen Exotic vendor of the “Nine,” an ominous group in Destiny 2, Xur ships new weapons and armor to players on their behalf on a weekly basis. All characters, i.e. warlocks, hunters and titans can buy from him. Whether you are new to the game or an experienced Guardian.
Xur also sells Legendary items and each week offers unique rolls for exotics from past DLC exotic missions that are no longer available.
He currently has these two weapons on offer:
- The Falcon Moon exotic handgun with the xyz perk
- The Exotic Scout Rifle “Tale of the Dead” with the “xyz” perk
The weapons cost: These two Exotics cost 1 Ascendant Fragment, 1 Exotic Code, 125,000 Glimmer, and 200 Legendary Fragments respectively.
Xur always has this with him: You can always get an Exotic Engram for 97 Legendary Shards from Xur, as well as the weekly quest to get an Exotic Code.
Trials of Osiris on 08/19 – 23.08. – Map, weapons and info
Which map is it this week? The so-called PvP trials always take place on a fixed map. This weekend you can also let off steam in it for the last time. Because the exams in the coming Season 18 will only start again on September 16th. So take the opportunity.
- We will update you the map for this last weekend as soon as it is known.
If you are interested in playing the trials in a team, MeinMMO recommends them Callout maps via Warmind. This gives your fireteam a good description of where the opponents are on the map, which is useful information for the whole team.
How to get your loot: The Trials of Osiris feature a reputation ranking system. Your top loot reward from PvP matches is currently for:
- Seven wins
- 50 rounds
- as well as the infamous flawless run that takes you to the lighthouse
This is the reward for a flawless run: Every week, a very special weapon awaits you on the lighthouse, which you get as a master version for your flawless run, i.e. 7 victories. You can earn the weapon until next Tuesday, August 9th at 7:00 p.m.
- We will update you the weapon as soon as it is known.
All Trials weapons have a Trials origin perk: Haste – Improves reload, stability, aim assist, and range when you’re the last member of your fireteam alive or fighting alone.
Once you have obtained your desired weapon, you can target your testing engrams at Saint-14 specifically to your desired weapon. On top there are Enhancement Prisms and Ascendant Fragments. Keep in mind that once you have a complete pass, your reward increases even more – even if you lose a game or two.
When do the trials officially start? The Trials of Osiris begins today, August 5th at 7:00 p.m. and ends with the Weekly Reset, August 16th at 7:00 p.m.
