Xur’s inventory for August 19, 2022

  • Crimson (Hand Cannon)
  • Gemini Jester (Hunter Leg Armor)
    • Mobility - 14
    • Resilience - 2
    • Recovery - 16
    • Discipline - 9
    • Intellect - 10

    • Total - 58

Now, if you’re wondering what to buy the answer is simple; you should buy everything you don’t already own. This includes the Exotic weapon and any Exotic armor you may not have, even for classes you don’t main. You should buy any Legendary weapons you don’t own, and any Legendary armor you don’t own. Destiny 2 is a game that’s about gear and building out your Collections. However, if you’re not interested in spending all those Legendary Shards, you can also just pick up whatever you’re missing for your main class.

Keep in mind that Xur also sells an Exotic Engram that will decrypt into something you do not already own, but only for the class that you’re visiting Xur with (weapons are obviously universal). He can also only give you items that are in his loot pool, so if you’re missing Exotic armor from the Legendary/Master Lost Sectors, he won’t give you that. He also won’t give you Exotics that are exclusive to quest progress, such as a couple of pieces from the Shadowkeep campaign. Even if you have everything that Xur is selling, buying this Exotic Engram can be beneficial as it could give you a better roll of an Exotic armor piece you already own.
