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 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 each Friday, so 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. 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 are Xur and his wares for the week?
(September 20 – September 24)
You can find Xur on Earth’s European Dead Zone this week at the same location in Winding Cove that he has always appeared. To get there, head forward after you spawn until you come across a big mountain with a crashed ship. Climb up rocks to the side of the ship and you can reach it. Xur is standing at the edge.
Here is the exact location:
And here’s what Xur has for wares:
The Colony — 29 Legendary Shards: The Colony grenade launcher is available to all players this week. The weapon offers improved reloading and shot speed, as well as increased stability and blast radius, When unequipped, it will automatically have its magazine refilled, and the insect robot grenades can chase enemies before exploding.
Karnstein Armlets (Warlocks) — 23 Legendary Shards: The Karnstein Armlets gauntlets are available to Warlocks this week. The gauntlets offer increased mobility and resilience as well as a greater chance of finding special ammunition after each kill. Causing melee damage will reduce your grenade cooldown, and it also instantly restores health after melee kills and will have a healing-over-time effect afterward.
Orpheus Rig (Hunters) — 23 Legendary Shards: Hunters can all get the Orpheus Rig leg armor from Xur this week. The armor offers increased mobility and resilience, as well as an increased chance of finding primary ammunition after a kill. It also gives you more mobility and tighter turns during sprinting, and you can get ability energy from enemies tethered by Deadfall — the quiver gets more arrows, too.
Ashen Wake (Titans) — 23 Legendary Shards: Titans can get the Ashen Wake gauntlets from Xur this week, which offer increased resilience and health recovery. They also increase your chance of finding special ammunition after each kill and reduce grenade cooldown after dealing melee damage. Fusion grenades will explode on impact and you can throw them more quickly.
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.
Five of Swords: Xur is also offering the Five of Swords challenge this week. This challenge introduces modifiers to Prestige Nightfall missions for increased rewards.
