As The Revelry comes to a close, Xur appears just in time for Cinco de Mayo. But will he bring Exotics worth celebrating? Or, will they cause us to drink our sorrows away?

SPOILERS: You'll be drinking this weekend in celebration, at least when it comes to Xur's inventory. For the uninitiated, Xur is the seller of exotic items and other pieces of loot that players have the ability to purchase. However, the location of Xur in Destiny 2 is not made known clearly to players and forces them to find the location of Xur in Destiny 2. If you are asking yourself where is Xur today, do not worry, as we have his location and inventory covered for you for the weekend of May 3-5. 

Xur Destiny 2 Location and Inventory Today, May 3

Players will be able to find the mysterious Agent of the Nine on Io in the Giant's Scar. 

In line with previous weeks, players will have the option to purchase one exotic weapon, three pieces of gear with one belonging to each class of guardian and other consumable items. Each piece of gear costs Guardians 23 legendary shards to purchase, while the weapon will require 29 legendary shards for players to add it to their inventories. 

  • Exotic Weapon - The Huckleberry, SMG
  • Exotic Hunter Gear - Gemini Jester, Leggings
  • Exotic Titan Gear -  Antaeus Wards, Leggings
  • Exotic Warlock Gear - Contraverse Hold, Gloves

Warlocks and Titans should grab their Forsaken Exotics this week. The Contraverse Hold gauntlets are great for Void Warlocks, giving them the ability to resist incoming damage while charging their Void grenade with Chaos Accelerant, Feed the Void, or Handheld Supernova. Charged Void grenades also return a random amount of grenade energy on a hit. The Titan boots, the Antaeus Wards, are those awesome boots that reflect projectiles when sliding. Doing so grants Super energy. They're situational, but they're new and cool, so grab them! Void Hunters should grab the Gemini Jesters, and those of you with lots of free time can grab Huckleberry. Xur also brings one more thing:

The Tower: 9 Legendary Shards

Yes, this is the glitched step in the "Invitation of the Nine" questline. Bungie apparently fixed it, and it looks like this:

  • Complete Hallowed Lair Strike 
  • Get 9 Hive samples
  • 9 Vex samples
  • 9 Scorn samples

Completing this objective unlocks another cutscene which further explains the Invitation questline. If you're a week behind, don't worry - you can still complete last week's step, but only that step this week. You'll have to wait until next week to take the next step.
