Seasoned Destiny 2 players know they can count on the elusive merchant Xur to make an appearance with special exotic items every Friday, but what’s not so clear is where you’ll be able to find him. Below, you’ll find a map with a marker that indicates where Xur is, as well as a list of his wares.
If you’re new to Destiny 2 and need a bit more information about how this works, you should know that Xur is a special vendor who sells exotic weapons and armor. Each week, he comes to the solar system with a slate of goods, including an exotic weapon and one piece of exotic armor for each character class. As of The Witch Queen, he now stocks legendary armor and weapons and sells additional exotic weapons with random rolls every week.
The trouble with Xur is finding him. We always know when Xur will show up — at the 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET reset each Friday. The question is where Xur will be. Previously in Destiny 2, Xur’s location was marked on the map. He’s now unmarked and harder to find each weekend. Here’s where to go to track down Xur, the Agent of the Nine, as well as everything you need to know about what he’s offering this week.
This week, you can find Xur on the EDZ. Load into the Winding Cove landing zone and head straight north from there. You’ll eventually reach a rocky cliffside, which you can jump up. Xur will be perched at the top of that cliff, ready to sell you some exotics.
Here is the exact location:
The Queenbreaker – 29 Legendary Shards: All hail the queen. The Queenbreaker is an exotic sniper rifle that fires an electrical punch. The gun fires an a long-range arc bolt, which blinds any enemy it hits.
Lucky Pants (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: Are you a hand-cannon enthusiast? Then it’s time to put on your Lucky Pants. These exotic Hunter legs will allow you to ready your hand cannons faster and make them more accurate after you swap them in too. Not only that, but they’ll make it so your precision hits will load a round into your holstered hand cannon’s chamber.
An Insurmountable Skullfort (Titan) — 23 Legendary Shards: If nothing else, An Insurmountable Skullfort has to be in the running for the best Destiny 2 exotic names. The Titan helmet grants perks whenever you get melee kills. Knock someone out and you’ll trigger health regeneration and restore melee energy, allowing you to punch even more.
Chromatic Fire (Warlock) – 23 Legendary Shards: If you like to hit precision shots instead of spraying-and-praying, Chromatic Fire is a great choice. While wearing this chest piece, all precision kills with your kinetic weapon will create a small explosion that matches your subclasses’ element. That will reward you for being a sharpshooter by hurting nearby enemies.
In addition, Xur will also sell the following weapons each week as of The Witch Queen. They will have random rolls every week. Both guns cost 125,000 glimmer, 200 legendary shards, one exotic cipher, and one ascendant shard.
Hawkmoon: Hawkmoon was one of the best hand cannons in the first Destiny, and it’s still a beast in Destiny 2. When you get precision kills with this gun, you gain stacks of charges. The final shot in your clip will do more damage based on how many charges you have stored. Headshot a bunch of thralls, and your last shot will do mega-damage. You just can’t stow the weapon mid-clip or you’ll lose your stacks.
Dead Man’s Tale: Dead Man’s Tale is an exotic scout rifle with some similarities to Hawkmoon. If you chain precision hits together, you’ll cause more damage. That will also reduce your load speed, so you’ll want to keep a steady aim with this gun to get the most bang for your glimmer.
