Destiny 2: Where is Xur for the weekend of December 23

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 23 to December 27)

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 in Nessus, though he no longer appears on the barge. To find him, load into the Watcher’s Grave landing zone and look straight ahead. You’ll see a huge tree north of your starting position. Head over to it and climb onto its branches. You’ll find Xur up there standing on a wide branch.

Here is the exact location:

Xur’s wares for this week

Hard Light – 29 Legendary Shards: Hard Light is a must own weapon for fans of auto rifles. This gun has three distinct features: bullets overpenetrate targets, have no falloff damage, and ricochet off of surfaces. When a bullets bounces, its power increases making this a perfect weapon for aiming down a tight corridor, unloading a clip, and hoping for the best.

Graviton Forfeit (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: Want to become The Invisible Man? Graviton Forfeit has you covered. This exotic helmet increases the duration of any Hunter invisibility effects. On top of that, your melee energy will recharge faster while clocked. So this helmet allows you to sneak up on enemies and punch them out with ease. Sneaky.

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.

Apotheosis Veil (Warlocks) – 23 Legendary Shards: Supers are the best way to turn the tide of battle, and Apotheosis Veil only helps you push the advantage. The exotic helmet regenerates your health, melee, grenade, and rift energy whenever you activate your super. As an added perk, it’ll recharge your allies’ abilities faster.

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.
