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. In Beyond Light, he now stocks items like the Five of Swords. He also offers quests to reclaim old exotic weapons you may have missed.
Where to find Xur (April 9-13)
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 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.
This week, you can find Xur on the EDZ. Load into the Winding Cove landing zone and head straight north from there. You’ll eventually reach a rocky cliffside, which you can jump up. Xur will be perched at the top of that cliff, ready to sell you some exotics.
Here is the exact location:
Xur’s wares for this week
The Prospector — 29 Legendary Shards: If you’ve always wanted to lay remote traps in Destiny, The Prospector is the gun for you. This exotic grenade launcher fires grenades that can be detonated. Just shoot the grenades and release the fire button when you’re ready to set them off.
Felwinter’s Helm (Warlock) — 23 Legendary Shards: Felwinter’s Helm gives a few of your abilities an extra utility in battle. When you kill an enemy with an elemental melee ability, you’ll create a burst of energy that weakens enemies near you. The size of the burst and length of its weakening effect will raise when you kill or use a finisher against a powerful enemy.
Wormhusk Crown (Hunter) — 23 Legendary Shards: For dodging Hunters, Wormhusk Crown is a solid exotic choice. This helmet will give you a small health and shield bump when you dodge. So if your play style is all about retreating from danger, this helmet will help you stay alive a little longer.
Mk. 44 Stand Asides (Titan) — 23 Legendary Shards: Mk. 44 Stand Asides effectively turn your Titan into a charging bull. If you sprint while at full health with Seismic Strike, Shield Bash, or Hammer strike equipped, you’ll gain an overshield. When you land a hit with one of those abilities, you’ll receive a portion of melee energy back.
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 only hold 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.
