Destiny 2: Where to find Xur for the weekend of July 12

Here's where to find Xur and what he has for wares this week

Seasoned Destiny 2 players know that every Friday they can count on the elusive merchant Xur to make an appearance with special exotic items, 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 and his list of wares.

If you’re new to Destiny 2 and need a bit more information about how this works, you’ll need to 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. Lately, he’s also been carrying Fated Engrams, which guarantee players an exotic drop they don’t already have, from the collection of exotics from before the release of Forsaken. As of March 12, 2019, he also sells gear exclusive to Forsaken.

The trouble with Xur is finding him. We always know when Xur will show up — at the daily reset on Friday, so 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern. The question is where Xur is. While previously in Destiny 2, Xur’s location was marked on the map each weekend, he’s now unmarked and thus tougher to find each weekend. Here’s where you need to go to track down Xur, the Agent of the Nine, and everything you need to know about what he’s offering this week.

Where is Xur and his wares for the week

(July 12 – July 16)

Xur can be found on Titan this week. To reach him, spawn into The Rig area and head east, running under a series of staircases until you find a rectangular building in an open door. Walk inside and you’ll see Xur in the very back of the open room.

Here is the exact location:

And here’s what Xur has for wares:

Hard Light — 29 Legendary Shards: You can get the exotic auto rifle Hard Light from Xur this week. The weapon offers faster reloads from an empty magazine, increased stability and handling speed, ricocheting ammunition with no damage falloff, and the ability to change the damage type from solar to arc and void. After ricocheting, bullets will do more damage.

(Titans) Helm of Saint-14 — 23 Legendary Shards: Titans can get the Helm of Saint-14 helmet from Xur this week. The helmet offers increased resilience and health recovery, as well as improved target acquisition, accuracy, and aiming speed with auto rifles and trace rifles. It also increases your chance of finding special ammunition after each kill, and enemies who enter your  Ward of Dawn are blinded. If allies pass through they’ll get an overshield.

(Warlocks) Wings of Sacred Dawn — 23 Legendary Shards: The Wings of Sacred Dawn chest armor is available for all Warlocks this week. The armor offers improved health recovery and mobility, as well as an increased chance of finding primary ammunition after each kill. It also reduces flinching while aiming submachine guns, and if you have Dawnblade equipped, aiming in midair will suspend you in place and this effect is extended by landing hits.

(Hunters) Gemini Jester — 23 Legendary Shards: Hunters can get the Gemini Jester leg armor from Xur this week. The armor offers increased mobility and resilience, as well as increased chance  of finding primary ammunition after each kill, It also  gives you tighter turns while sprinting, and dodging will disorient close enemies and removes their radar temporarily.

Isochronal Engram — 97 Legendary Shards: You can only buy one of these Engrams per week, per account, but if you’re filling out your exotic collection, it’s worth it. The Fated Engram automatically gives you something you’re missing from the Destiny 2 Year 1 exotic set, and now Forsaken as well.

The World — 9 Legendary Shards: Lastly, Xur is offering The World challenge this week. The challenge requires the annual pass and asks you to complete a strike and collect different types of resources.
