X没r, Destiny 2's mysterious weekly item vendor, has returned once again with powerful wares from the Nine. Each weekend X没r brings an array of Exotic weapons, armour, and Legendary gear to an undisclosed location in the solar system. With Iron Banner taking place this week and the Solstice event set to begin next week, there may be some valuable items you want to pick up. For Warlocks, in particular, X没r has generously stocked a god-roll item for when the Arc 3.0 update rolls out next Season.

Here's where to find X没r and what he has to sell for July 15-19.

Where is X没r Today?

This weekend, X没r is located in The Tower, in the large Hangar area.

To find X没r, first travel to the Courtyard transmat location. Upon spawning in, travel across the small bridge immediately to your left. Follow the path down two flights of stairs until you reach the Hangar. From here, keep to the left, heading north until you see a staircase leading to a metal catwalk where you'll see the mysterious X没r peddling his wares.

X没r returns every Friday at daily reset (6pm BST/ 7pm CEST/ 10am PT /1pm ET) and remains until the same time on Monday. His exact location is always a mystery when he first arrives, as he is not listed on the map. However, there are a set number of locations he can be, including the Tower Hangar, the Watcher's Grave on Nessus, and the Winding Cove in the EDZ.

What is X没r Selling Today?

This week X没r has brought with him a god-roll Warlock Exotic, especially helpful with Arc 3.0 on the way, and several other high-stat pieces. Here鈥檚 X没r's stock:

Exotic Engram (97 Legendary Shards)

SUROS Regime - Exotic Auto Rifle (29 Legendary Shards)

Exotic Perks

SUROS Legacy: The bottom half of each magazine deals bonus damage and has a chance to return health on kill.

Spinning Up: Holding down the trigger increases rate of fire/Dual Speed Receiver: When aiming down sights, weapon rate of fire slows while weapon damage increases.

The Bombardiers - Exotic Hunter Leg Armour (23 Legendary Shards)

Exotic Perk

Parting Gift: Dodging leaves behind an explosive that detonates after a short delay, damaging targets around it and creating a secondary effect based on your subclass energy type.

  • 17 Mobility
  • 12 Resilience
  • 2 Recovery
  • 2 Discipline
  • 23 Intellect
  • 7 Strength
  • Total: 63

Ashen Wake - Exotic Titan Gauntlets (23 Legendary Shards)

Exotic Perk

Bring the Heat: Fusion Grenades now explode on impact and gain increased throw speed. Final blows with Fusion Grenades grant grenade energy.

  • 10 Mobility
  • 13 Resilience
  • 9 Recovery
  • 19 Discipline
  • 2 Intellect
  • 10 Strength
  • Total: 63

Crown of Tempests - Exotic Warlock Helmet (23 Legendary Shards)

Exotic Perk

Conduction Tines: Arc ability kills increase the recharge rate of your Arc abilities and extend the duration of Stormtrance.

  • 3 Mobility
  • 30 Resilience
  • 3 Recovery
  • 16 Discipline
  • 2 Intellect
  • 16 Strength
  • Total: 70

Hunters and Titans didn't have the best luck this week with fairly low stat rolls on mediocre Exotics. However, both Exotics can be good fun with the new Solar 3.0 subclass reworks for each class.

Luckily, Warlocks have been graced with perhaps the greatest stat roll for Crown of Tempests that you could ask for, coming in at 70 stat points overall, a whopping 30 of which are in Resilience. Do not miss this helmet! With the Arc 3.0 update next Season, Arc is finally getting upgraded to the new system, complete with Aspects and Fragments, and so this Arc-themed Exotic is surely going to be a strong choice.

Here's an overview of X没r's second-page stock this weekend, including Exotic weapons, Legendary armour, and Exotic Ciphers. Source: Author.

Weekly Hawkmoon and Dead Man鈥檚 Tale

Since Season of the Risen and The Witch Queen, X没r has also stocked a random roll of both Hawkmoon and Dead Man鈥檚 Tale, two powerful Exotic weapons that were previously available through seasonal content and a challenging Exotic quest respectively.

Hawkmoon - Exotic Hand Cannon, Kinetic (125,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary Shards, Exotic Cipher, Ascendant Shard)

Exotic Perk

Paracausal Shot: Final blows and precision hits with Hawkmoon grant stacks of Paracausal Charge. The final round in the magazine deals bonus damage based on the number of stacks. Stowing Hawkmoon on the final round removes this bonus.

  • Extended Barrel
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Rangefinder
  • Heavy Grip

Dead Man's Tale - Exotic Scout Rifle, Kinetic (125,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary Shards, Exotic Cipher, Ascendant Shard)

Exotic Perk

Cranial Spike: Chaining precision hits grants bonus damage and quickens reload speed.

  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Moving Target
  • Composite Stock

While Hawkmoon has low handling, the perk combination of Heavy Grip and Rangefinder is definitely worth picking up for a PvP roll.

Legendary Inventory

Since Season of the Lost, X没r also sells a collection of old armour and weapons that are typically from prior seasons and therefore can be hard to obtain. If you want to add to your gear collection or acquire an old armour set to add it to your transmog collection, then definitely check these out. Each item here costs 1,000 Glimmer and 50 Legendary Shards each:

  • Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver - Kinetic sidearm
  • Extraordinary Rendition - Kinetic submachine gun
  • Wolftone Draw - Arc bow
  • Distant Tumulus - Solar sniper rifle
  • First In, Last Out - Arc shotgun
  • Corsair鈥檚 Wrath - Solar linear fusion rifle
  • The Keening - Arc sidearm
  • Seventh Seraph armour set

As for gear rolls, Titans have a good roll on Seventh Seraph chest armour with high Recovery and Strength while maintaining an average Resilience stat. Hunters have high 65 stat roll Seventh Seraph gauntlets, although the stat distribution is fairly weak with very low Resilience.

Exotic Cipher Quest

Introduced in the Beyond Light expansion, each week X没r also offers players a quest, named 鈥榅enology鈥, to acquire an Exotic Cipher. These rare items allow players to buy old Exotics from previous DLCs and seasons through the Monument to Lost Light kiosk located in The Tower by the Vaults.

This quest simply tasks you with playing 21 ritual activities in Destiny 2 - Vanguard Ops, Crucible, and Gambit. Complete the quest to earn one Exotic Cipher. Do note, you may only complete this quest once per week and that you can only carry one Exotic cipher at any given time.
