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. Lately, he carries Fated Engrams, which guarantee players an exotic drop they don’t already have from the collection of exotics from before the release of Shadowkeep.
Where to find Xur
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, and everything you need to know about what he’s offering this week.
Xur’s wares for this week
(August 7 to August 11)
This week, you can find Xur on top of the barge in Nessus (the spot where Werner 99-40 also resides). To find him, load into the Watcher’s Grave landing zone and walk northwest until you see a big ship floating above the ground. Jump onto the ship and you’ll find Xur hanging out on the front of the ship, surrounded by golden chests.
Here is the exact location:
Here’s what Xur has for wares.
Merciless – 29 Legendary Shards: If at first you don’t succeed, Merciless will make sure you finish the job. When you shoot an enemy with this fusion rifle and they don’t die, the weapon’s charge time will increase until you get a kill. Since the rate of fire is generally slow for fusion rifles, this perk makes it one of the speedier weapons of its type.
Nezarec’s Sin (Warlock) – 23 Legendary Shards: For Warlocks who love their void abilities, you might want to pick up Nezarec’s Sin. This exotic helmet pairs nicely with your subclass, increasing your ability recharge rate when you get void kills.
Gemini Jester (Hunters) – 23 Legendary Shards: Gemini Jester brings a bit of trolling to Destiny 2. When you wear these exotic boots, your dodges will disorient nearby enemies. That means that their radar gets temporarily removed, allowing you to make a clean getaway or get the jump on them.
Peregrine Greaves (Titan) – 23 Legendary Shards: Exotic titan armor tends to come with some crazy perks, and Peregrine Greaves is no exception. This exotic set of legs buffs all of your shoulder charge abilities by giving them extra damage when activated in the air. That means that opponents won’t be able to jump over you when you charge them, making you a threat on land and in the air.
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 and 2 exotic sets, 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.
