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 and provides his 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
(April 3 to April 7)
This week, you can find Xur at Giant Scar on Io. To get to him, fast travel to the Giant Scar landing zone. Ride your sparrow straight through the building in front of you, and hang a left when you exit it. Hug the wall and keep going left until you reach a cave. Pop in there, and you’ll find Xur in the back ready to sell you some exotics.
Here is the exact location:
Here’s what Xur has for wares.
Hard Light – 29 Legendary Shards: Hard Light is a must-own weapon for fans of auto rifles. This gun has three distinct features: Bullets overpenetrate targets, have no falloff damage, and ricochet off surfaces. When a bullet bounces, its power increases, making this a perfect weapon for aiming down a tight corridor, unloading a clip, and hoping for the best.
Contraverse Hold (Warlocks) – 23 Legendary Shards: If your Warlock is a master of the Void arts, Contraverse Hold might be worth checking out. These exotic arms are built around your void grenade in interesting ways. With these, you’ll resist damage while charging your grenade with Chaos Accelerant, Feed The Void, or Handheld Supernova. When your charged grenade hits an enemy, a random amount of grenade energy will return to you, making these arms a little unpredictable.
Orpheus Rig (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: As far as exotic boots go, Orpheus Rig are actually somewhat useful for Nightstalkers. While wearing these, you’ll get more ability energy for every enemy tethered by Deadfall anchors. It will also give your Moebius Quiver more shots, giving you an option for multiple class tree paths.
Stronghold (Titan) – 23 Legendary Shards: Stronghold is an extremely specific exotic built for sword users. These arms are all about granting you bonuses when you block with a sword. While blocking, your movement speed will increase and you won’t drain sword ammo. On top of that, any shots you block after guarding will heal you. Pair this with a good exotic sword to get the most out of these niche arms.
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.
