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. In Beyond Light, he now stocks items like the Five of Swords. He also offers quests to reclaim old exotic weapons you may have missed.
Where to find Xur (February 26-March 2)
The trouble with Xur is finding him. We always know when Xur will show up — at the daily reset at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET each Friday. The question is where Xur is. 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
Monte Carlo – 29 Legendary Shards: Have you ever wanted a weapon that helps you punch better? Well, Monte Carlo might be your best bet. When you do damage with this exotic auto rifle, your melee ability cooldown will be reduced. In addition, kills will grant a chance for your ability to fully recharge, making this a great option for getting up close with enemies and playing aggressively.
Vesper of Radius (Warlock) – 23 Legendary Shards: Vesper of Radius is a chest piece that infuses your rifts with arc power. Every time you cast your rift, you’ll release a damaging shock wave. As a bonus, your rifts will recharge faster when surrounded by enemies, so this exotic works wonders in these situations.
Fr0st-EE5 (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: No, Fr0st-EE5 does not give you ice powers. Instead, it’s all about cooldowns … get it? These exotic gloves increase your melee, grenade, and dodge energy while sprinting. Dodging will also increase your sprint speed, so those two abilities feed into one another nicely.
Antaeus Wards (Titan) – 23 Legendary Shards: If you just enjoy sliding around as a Titan, Antaeus Wards are a must have. While wearing these exotic legs, you’ll deflect any bullets shot at you while sliding after a sprint. Essentially, you become bulletproof during your slide. Doing that also grants super energy, so it’s not just for flair.
Exotic Cipher Quest – Xenology: Exotic Ciphers are items that allow players to obtain older exotic weapons. Every week, Xur will sell one exotic quest, which awards an exotic cipher. You can only hold one exotic cipher quest at a time, so make sure to clear out anything you have in progress so you can buy a new one every week. This week, players will get the Xenology quest, which requires you to clear strikes, as well as win Crucible or Gambit matches.
