It's been a while since Xur has offered anything truly exciting in Destiny 2. But this weekend's inventory is something to get hyped about.

All four items that Xur brought with him for the weekend are new Exotics from the Curse of Osiris expansion. Sadly, that means if you don't own the expansion you can't buy them, but they're new all the same.

Let's take a look at what he's got.

Where is Xur?

Xur is in his normal section of the EDZ on Earth, on a cliff in the Winding Cove region. Just jump up to find him standing next to a crashed Fallen Skiff.

First up is The Colony, a really cool Exotic grenade launcher. It doesn't actually shoot grenades, though, as its payload is tiny robot insectoids. The little spiderbots will land where you shoot them and then scoot on the ground until they find a target to explode on. It costs 29 Legendary Shards.

Shinobu's Vow is the Hunter armor this week, which is a returning Exotic from Destiny 1. In fact, they all are. So while they may be new for the sequel, series veterans will remember them well. These gauntlets improve the Skip Grenade for the Arcstrider subclass, and it also gives a second grenade charge. It costs 23 Legendary Shards.

The Titan armor is Mk. 44 Stand Asides, which are boots that grant you an overshield when sprinting at full health using any of the three Titan subclass charge-melee abilities, like Shoulder Charge. Hits with these abilities also recharge a portion of your melee energy. It's on sale for 23 Legendary Shards.

This week's Warlock armor is The Stag, a funky-looking deer helmet with long antlers. This helm grants Rift energy when you're critically wounded, and when you die, it creates a brief healing Rift on your corpse. It costs 23 Legendary Shards.

All three of these items were only added into the game about a month ago, so if you don't have them, pick them up all up to fill out your collection in Destiny 2.
