Destiny 2 Location Guide: Where is Xur?
It's that time again: Xur is back. This Destiny 2 vendor provides you the weekly opportunity to buy high-level exotic weapons and armor -- all so you don't have to grind through strikes, public events, and raids as much to get that coveted gear and increase your light level.
However, unlike its predecessor, Xur won't necessarily be as easy to find in Destiny 2. Before, you could count on the Agent of the Nine being in either The Tower, The Reef, or The Vestian Outpost. In Destiny 2, Bungie's changed things up a little bit, letting Xur show up in any of the landing zones across Earth, Titan, Io, or Nessus.
But instead of scurrying around trying to find him yourself, we've put this weekly Destiny 2 Xur Locations guide together to help you find him quicker -- and get those exotic weapons and armor sets faster.
Keep in mind that Xur spawns every Friday at 5 a.m. EST and disappears every Sunday at the same time. So make sure to stock up on currency (Legendary Shards) throughout the week by getting gear through Destiny 2 Strikes, Challenges, Public Events, Nightfalls, Raids, and Randoms.
Xur's Location September 15-17
This week, you can find Xur on Nessus in Watcher's Grave near the Chamber of Water. From the spawn point in Watcher's Grave, go straight, past the portal on the right side, and toward the tree in the distance. Find the one protruding from the stone wall on the right side.
Look up on the branches above, and you'll find Xur, Agent of the Nine.
What Xur is Selling September 15-17
This week, Xur is selling:
- Merciless (Fusion Rifle) -- 29 Legendary Shards: This fusion rifle packs a ridiculous punch. Not because of its base attack rating, but because of its Conserve Momentum weapon perk, which makes the weapon charge faster for each non-leathal hit. This means Merciless is a boss-melter.
- Raiden Flux (Chest Armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards: This Hunter-class chest piece recharges class abilities faster if you're running an Arc Subclass, which can be a boon for those using Arcstrider. It's Synapse Junctions armor perk means your arc Staff attacks will be more powerful and last longer with each successive attack.
- Doom Fang Pauldrons (Gauntlets) -- 23 Legendary Shards: These Titan-specific gauntlets are perfect if you're running Sentinel as your subclass and like to get up close and personal with the enemy. Doom Fang Pauldrons recharge your void melee abilities faster and with the Horns of Doom perk, you'll be able to recharge your shield throw with Shield Bash melee kills. On top of that, any melee ability kills will send energy to your Sentinel super.
- Wings of Sacred Dawn (Chest Armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards: This piece of exotic Warlock armor intrinsically increases the handling for any equipped power weapon. This means you'll be able to ready and put away your power weapon faster, aim down the sights faster, and pull up your sights faster after falling, jumping, etc. The Tome of Dawn armor perk suspends you midair when aiming down the sights. Getting precision hits will make the effect last longer.
And there you have it: Xur's location for September 15-17. Make sure to check back with GameSkinny each and every week for Xur's updated location in Destiny 2. Need more Destiny 2 guides? Here are a few to get you started:
