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 Beyond Light, he offers quests to reclaim old exotic weapons you may have missed, plus he now stocks legendary armor and weapons.
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.
Xur is fortunately pretty easy to find this week. You can find him in the Tower over in the Hangar. Run to the right side of the map and run under the building housing Future War Cult. Head to the northern edge of the map and run up the flight of stairs there. You’ll find Xur hanging out right at the top of that first staircase, next to the next flight of stairs.
Here is the exact location:
The Huckleberry — 29 Legendary Shards: The Huckleberry doesn’t have the fanciest of perks, but it’s designed for those who just hate reloading. Whenever you get a kill with this submachine gun, a portion of its magazine will reload automatically. Holding down the trigger will increase its rate of fire, so you can keep firing for a while before needing to manually reload.
Apotheosis Veil (Warlocks) — 23 Legendary Shards: Supers are the best way to turn the tide of battle, and Apotheosis Veil only helps you push the advantage. The exotic helmet regenerates your health, melee, grenade, and rift energy whenever you activate your super. As an added perk, it’ll recharge your allies’ abilities faster.
Raiden Flux (Hunter) — 23 Legendary Shards: Arc Staff users will get a kick out of Raiden Flux. The exotic chest piece increases the damage and duration of Arc Staff after landing quick, successive kills with it. That makes it the perfect exotic for chaining together kills to maximize your super.
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.
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 hold only 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.
