Destiny 2 Xur location and inventory overview

Here are all of the Destiny 2 Xur locations, plus a look at his inventory so you can decide if you need to pay the Agent of the Nine a visit

Destiny 2 Xur stands in his perch in the EDZ.

Are you looking for Destiny 2 Xur? Xur is Destiny 2’s Exotic gear merchant, and he appears every weekend to sell coveted items in exchange for Legendary shards. But, if you’re a casual player with limited shards to spend, it can be hard to know which items you should purchase from his inventory. That’s where we come in.

The Exotic merchant provides plenty of excitement in the free PC game due to his ever-changing inventory and the hope that he might arrive with a god roll. Read on to learn a little about the Destiny 2 Xur schedule, where you can typically find him, and what you’ll usually find in his inventory.

Xur is located in Winding Cove in the EDZ during the weekend of June 2 to 5.

Xur is currently selling the following Exotics:

Sweet Business – Exotic Auto Rifle
Impact 18
Range 35
Stability 55
Handling 5
Reload Speed 0
Recoil Direction 100
Rounds per Minute  360
Magazine  45

Payday: Large mag. Increased hip fire accuracy.

Sweet Business is certainly worth the cost if you don’t already own it, as it is a fun and versatile Exotic weapon.

Each of the following Exotic armor pieces from Xur will cost 23 Legendary shards.

Aeon Swift – Hunter Gauntlets
Mobility 12
Resilience 11
Recovery 11
Discipline 19
Intellect 10
Strength 2
Total 65

Aeon’s Wrath: Rapid weapon precision hits temporarily increase reload speed and wap speed.

Foebreaker Chant: Stunning a Champion or defeating a boss/miniboss, grants your fireteam members grenade and melee energy. Aeon cult allies who do not have the Sect of Force role equipped also gain a burst of Super energy.

This is a decent armor stat. If you do not already have it or want a higher-stat version than the one you have, it’s worth the cost.

Lion Rampant – Titan leg armor
Mobility 6
Resilience 8
Recovery 20
Discipline 20
Intellect 11
Strength 2
Total 67
    Jump jets: Buffs maneuverability and air hipfire in Lift.
    Although people argue about the viability of this Exotic, many Guardians who use it regularly say it’s fun.
Verspur of Radius – Warlock chest
Mobility 9
Resilience 11
Recovery 13
Discipline 6
Intellect 6
Strength 18
Total 63

Planetary Torrent: Rift periodically releases an Arc shackwave.

The stats are just ok and this is probably stronger with Arc builds so may not be the best investment at this time.

As usual, Xur is also selling Hawkmoon and Dead Man’s Tale. This weekend’s perks are in the right-hand column. These each cost 125,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary shards, one Exotic Cipher, and one Ascendant Shard.

Hawkmoon Exotic hand cannon Moving Target
Dead Man’s Tale Exotic scout rifle Outlaw

What Legendary items is Xur selling?

This weekend, Xur is selling the following for 50 Legendary shards and 1000 Glimmer each:

Weapon Type Frame Perk 1 Perk 2
Firefright Auto Rifle Precision Frame Air Assault Adaigo
Piece of Mind Pulse Rifle Rapid-fire Frame Overflow Focused Fury
Seventh Seraph Sidearm Lightweight Frame Threat Detector Surrounded
Hollow Words Fusion Rifle Precision Frame Quickdraw Vorpal Weapon
Deafening Whisper Grenade Launcher Wave Frame Surplus Threat Detector
Recurrent Impact Machine Gun Rapid-fire Frame Genesis Tap the Trigger
Crown-Splitter Sword Heavy Guard Relentless Strike Whirlwind Blade

Several of these weapons and perk combos are decent, but nothing here would be considered a god roll and therefore may not be worth it unless you have a personal preference for the weapon.

This weekend’s armor set is the Future War Cult Armor set, which is a relatively rare set.

What time does Xur appear?

Xur appears every Friday at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST and will stick around until Tuesday’s Destiny 2 weekly reset. The reset takes place on Tuesdays at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST.

All Destiny 2 Xur locations

When Xur visits, the map won’t show his location. Therefore, players must seek him out during his weekly visits. Luckily, it’s not that hard to find him because he will always arrive in one of the following three locations:

Hangar, The Tower

When Xur visits the Tower, he hangs out in the Hangar area. The Hangar is the far right portion of the map, where you can also find Amanda Holliday, the shipwright, and Saint-14, who runs Trials of Osiris. To find Xur in the Hangar, enter the open area and immediately head north. You can find him near a set of stairs at the back of the building.

Winding Cove, EDZ

If Xur is visiting the EDZ, you will find him in the Winding Cove area of the map. To get to his location, you should fast travel to that region and head directly north. He’ll be standing at the edge of a rocky cliff, ready to dole out his wares.

Watcher’s Grave, Nessus

When Xur visits Nessus, he stands near the top of a large, red tree in Watcher’s Grave. Find him by fast travelling to Watcher’s Grave and heading north until you see the tree. The incline for the tree will be on the north side, so find it and follow it up to find the Agent of the Nine.

Xur doesn’t cycle his visits in any particular order, so you may find him at the same location multiple weeks in a row.

Destiny 2 Xur inventory

Although Xur’s actual inventory changes every week, the types of goods he carries remain consistent week to week.

Xur will always have Exotic engrams, and every week, you can purchase one for 97 Legendary Shards. You can also get a second one with an Exotic Cypher, which you can earn by getting a quest from Xur and completing the objectives. These Exotics are guaranteed to be one non-quest exotic that you haven’t already discovered as that class. If you already have all non-quest exotics, then it’s guaranteed to be a different roll than the Exotics you already have.

He also carries a different Exotic weapon each visit, which is available for 29 Legendary Shards.

He’ll also have one Exotic armor piece for each class, amounting to three separate pieces. These will cost 23 Legendary Shards. The armor pieces will have set stats, so be on the lookout for weeks when he’s selling armor with stats totaling 70 or higher.

Xur also consistently sells two Legendary weapons: Hawkmoon, which is an Exotic hand cannon, and Dead Man’s Tale, which is an Exotic scout rifle. These items each come with a random perk, which stays consistent throughout the weekend.

Finally, Xur always offers a collection of old Legendary weapons and armor with specific randomly-assigned traits and stats that remain consistent throughout his visit. Most of these items are otherwise tricky to find because they are from past seasons. These cost 1,000 Glimmer and 50 Legendary Shards.

Exotic Cipher quest

In addition to various Exotics, Xur also sells an Exotic Cipher quest. Called the Xenology Exotic Quest, this is effectively a bounty that will task you to complete a couple of Strikes, Gambit matches, or something similar. When you complete the task, you can purchase an additional Exotic Engram from Xur. Note that you can only carry one Exotic Cipher at a time, so this quest won’t be available to Guardians already carrying one.

Who is Xur?

You know what he sells, but what about who he actually is? Also known as the Agent of the Nine, Xur is a mysterious Jovian merchant who shows up in a different location every week to sell rare gear to Guardians. He’s appeared in both Destiny games so far, and while not much is known about him, he claims that he has no agency and is merely a servant of the Nine.
