Destiny 2: Where is Xur for the weekend of December 9

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.

Who is Xur?

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.

Where to find Xur (December 9 to December 13)

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:

Xur’s wares for this week

Sweet Business — 29 Legendary Shards: Need to absolutely clear out an entire room? Give your enemies the Sweet Business. This exotic auto rifle is essentially a chain gun that rotates barrels. It has a much larger magazine than most auto rifles and increased accuracy when firing from the hip. When you pick up special or heavy ammo, it automatically feeds into the gun, reloading it on the spot. Play your cards right and you’ll never have to stop shooting.

Gemini Jester (Hunters) – 23 Legendary Shards: Gemini Jester brings a bit of trolling to Destiny. When you wear these exotic boots, your dodges will disorient nearby enemies. That means that their radar gets temporarily removed allowing you to make a clean getaway or get the jump on them.

Eternal Warrior (Titan) – 23 Legendary Shards: Do you love to Titan Smash? Well, then you’re going to want Eternal Warrior. This exotic helmet gives you an overshield when you activate your Fist of Havoc super, turning you into an unstoppable punching machine. Basically, wear this helmet if you want to become the Hulk.

Claws of Ahamkara (Warlocks) — 23 Legendary Shards: Claws of Ahamkara isn’t fancy, but it gets the job done. These exotic gauntlets give you an extra melee charge. So pick these up if you just want to punch your foes out.

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.
