February 3, 2023: We updated our guide with the latest Xur location and inventory selection.

Anyone who is serious about staying up to date and competitive in Bungie's looter-shooter MMOPRG relies on the ever-changing Destiny 2 Xur location. The franchise's favourite mysterious vendor is always darting around the galaxy for one reason or another, and we're here to make sure you always know exactly where he is.

If it's time for you to check in on old Xur, read on to find out not where Xur is this week, but also what you can expect to buy from him. You might want to double-check his inventory before you seek him out. There's no point visiting the man if he has nothing that'll help you.

Elsewhere in the Destiny 2 world, we have Destiny 2 codes you can redeem for things like free emblems and currencies. And if you've ever been met with an error on busy days, we have "Destiny 2 Is Temporarily At Capacity" explained in this separate guide.

Where is Xur This Week?

Xur is on the EDZ this week. Load into the Winding Cove, and head north. Head over to the large fallen ship on the side of the cliff, and scale the cliff to reach Xur.

What is Xur selling this week?

Here are the Exotics that Xur is selling this week:

  • Lord of Wolves
  • Raiju's Harness (Hunter)
  • Doom Fang Pauldron (Titan)
  • Felwinter's Helm (Warlock)

Xur's Exotics this week are pretty mediocre. Lord of Wolves is an ok pick up if you don't have it, and Doom Fang is the only worthwhile exotic here.

Xur's Hawkmoon and Dead Man's Tale are pretty mediocre this week, so skip on them as well.

Here are the Legendary Weapons that Xur is selling this weekend:

  • False Promises (Feeding Frenzy, Eye of the Storm)
  • Chrysura Melo (Encore, Harmony)
  • Blast Battue (Moving Target, Rampage)
  • Ignition Code (Ambitious Assassin, Thresh)
  • Nature of the Beast (Quickdraw, High Impact Reserves)
  • Fractethyst (Ensemble, Adrenaline Junkie)
  • The Keening (Slideshot, Vorpal Weapon)

Of the weapons that Xur has this weekend, there's nothing that screams must have. The Keening is ok if you like sidearms, but otherwise, everything is pretty bad.

Armor this week is a wild spread of average gear. Definitely consider picking up the Hunter and Warlock arms. If you need a decent pair of Boots for Warlock, Xur's this week isn't a bad option.

Who Is Xur?

If you're new to the game, Xur is a character that sells exotic weapons and armour over the weekend. He appears at 5pm GMT (6 PM BST) in a seemingly random location and offers rare gear in exchange for legendary shards that you can collect from dismantling legendary gear or completing activities.

We say random location, but he'll always be in the same spots you've always found him in - "Winding Cove" in the EDZ, in a tree in "Watcher's Grave" on Nessus, or in the Hangar in the Tower. He used to appear on Io and Titan, but both of those locations are now in the "Destiny Content Vault".

We won't know what he's offering for players until he appears, but we do know that he'll offer a variety of items.

Xur's inventory always includes one exotic weapon, three exotic armour pieces (one per class), and an isochronal engram that guarantees a drop of a random exotic from Year One or Year Two - and it's always something the player doesn't have, which makes it ideal for finishing collections.

As of Destiny 2: Beyond Light, he'll also offer a bounty that rewards players with an Exotic Cipher – an item that helps them earn exotic weapons from the new kiosk in the Tower.

How Is Xur?

Everyone is always asking "Where is Xur," but never "How is Xur?" Having been the guardian's primary quartermaster since the original release almost ten years ago now - he's probably getting pretty lonely at this point as players seek him out on a set day, grab what they can, and ignore his ex for another few days.

We'll be updating this piece once we know where the tentacle-faced hoodlum is, and what he's offering for Guardians. Until then, as we think it's only a matter of time before Destiny finds its way to phones and tablets, our Apex Legends Mobile release date hub should give you a fine example of why we think that is.
