Destiny 2 players are in for another Xur run in a destination that would get vaulted in just a few days, had Beyond Light not been postponed to November 2020.

Guardians can find Xur on Giant's Scar on Io this week. To get to him, spawn on the aforementioned waypoint and proceed to the right through the giant yellow building. As soon as you go through it, take the left path and continue until you reach a small cave next to it. Xur is located there next to the regional chest. You can see the exact location on the map below.

Riskrunner is the weapon we can get this week. While SMGs are not favoured in the meta where auto rifles do basically the same thing but with range that keeps them safe from shotguns, Riskrunner still finds its uses in PvP. If you noticed many opponents running Arc specs, they can pretty much serve as damage boosters for you all the time. In PvE, the weapon is absolutely fantastic whenever there is a chance of incoming Arc damage so make sure you abuse it against Fallen.

Young Ahamkara's Spine is what Hunters are getting this week. The gloves are useful in both PvE and PvP since they will increase your Tripmine Grenades' blast radius at all times and damage when you previously hit an enemy with another ability. Given the fact that most Hunters use Gambler's Dodge, throwing knives of all variations will be loaded up most of the time so it's free additional damage on the tripmines all over the place. The improved damage is 160 in PvP so an additional shot from pretty much anything will be enough to finish the target off.

Titans are getting Wormgod Caress which is mostly useful in PvE. You can easily stack up Roaring Flames with middle Solar tree for melee damage boost and then get the Exotic's damage boost on top of that for some extremely powerful throwing hammers.

Warlocks are getting Apotheosis Veil which is a decent Exotic for spamming abilities, just make sure you use up the regular ones before popping Super since that's what will trigger the energy regeneration. It also passively increases class ability energy gain so having two Warlocks with this thing can result in enough rifts to cover the surface of Traveler in them.
