This Weekend in Destiny 2 – Xûr and Trials (04.17 – 04.21)

This weekend you can find Xûr hanging out at the Hangar in the Tower and Trials is live on Exodus Blue. View Xûr’s complete inventory and Trials info below.

Note: Once the Trials loot rotation is known, I will be able to post this and the infographics much sooner, I appreciate your patience for the time being. Depending on how your viewing this post, you may need to disable/turn off reader mode if you notice some text isn’t visible or formatting looks off or visit the full desktop version.



A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: For a larger view of the infographic above, click and open it, and then zoom in for larger text.)
