Xur Exotic Items and Location in Destiny 2 This Week

Bill Hess on

The mysterious vendor has returned and this week he's got a bevy of new exotic weapons and gear.


Where is Xur in Destiny 2 this week?  Each weekend in Destiny, Xur, Agent of the Nine makes an appearance in the Tower to dole out exotic weapons and engrams to Guardians. He’s a one stop shop for the rarest exotics in Destiny, so it’s no surprise that players await his weekly arrival with bated breath. In Destiny 2 the vendor arrives at a random location and remains there for a set time period of time.

  • Xur is located on Nessus. Look for the IX symbol on the Director Map

How to find Xur

Unlike the original Destiny, the location of Xur can now be seen on the game’s map in Destiny 2 once he arrives.  Simply pull up the The Director and look for the Agent of Nine symbol in the “Destinations” tab of the world’s guide.  Xur’s location will usually be near one of the landing zones of Earth, Titan, Nessus, or IO. Xur does not arrive in the Curse of Osiris Mars DLC location of the game.

Xur arrives on Fridays at 9AM PT | 11AM CT | 12PM ET and will remain until the weekly reset occurs each Tuesday.  The time that Xur arrives does change during daylight savings time.

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.  Xur no longer accepts Strange Coins.  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 travelling vendor in Destiny 2 who is of the Firstborn awoken race.  He is presumed to be of male gender.  His current location is constantly unknown, as he comes and goes freely selling his strange Curios and Exotic items to Guardians.
