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 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:
Lord of Wolves – 29 Legendary Shards: When it comes to exotic weapons, few have caused as much of a stir as Lord of Wolves did when it first dropped. This exotic shotgun fires a massive solar burst, which can be charged to create an even larger shot. The weapon was famously nerfed in 2018, but it’s still worth checking out if you love shotgun chaos.
Celestial Nighthawk (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: Celestial Nighthawk is a must-have exotic for PVE players. This helmet changes your Golden Gun super to fire one powerful shot, instead of three smaller ones. Any enemies you kill with the shot will grant you super energy. This is best used for taking huge chunks of health out of bosses quickly.
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.
Crown of Tempests (Warlock) – 23 Legendary Shards: Crown of Tempests is a quintessential exotic for Stormcallers. While wearing these gloves, arc ability kills will increase the recharge rate for your grenade, melee, and super. Your Stormcaller super will also extend based on how many kills you get during it.
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.
