What Does Xur Sell?

Xur sells very rare Exotic Weapons and Exotic Armor in Destiny 2.  He allows players to trade in-game currency of Legendary Shards in exchange for exotic-level weapons and armor for each class in the game. Every week Xur will have an exotic piece of armor for each class in Destiny 2:  Titan, Hunter, and Warlock.  He’ll also have an exotic weapon for sale, which all classes can use.

How to Purchase Items from Xur

Once you find Xur you’ll need to have the appropriate type of currency to make transactions with him.  To purchase exotic gear you’ll need to have a lot of Legendary Shards which can be collected by breaking down or dismantling legendary or exotic gear.

Xur also sells Fated Engrams in exchange for Legendary Shards.  Fated Engrams are guaranteed to give you an Exotic item that you do not currently own.  If you purchase a Fated Engram you may receive any of the game’s exotic weapons and armor, so long as you don’t already own it.

Who is Xur?

Xur is a traveling vendor in Destiny 2 who is of the Firstborn awoken race.  He is presumed to be of the male gender.  His current location is constantly unknown, as he comes and goes freely selling his strange Curios and Exotic items to Guardians.
