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 (March 5-March 9)
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 is. 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
Telesto – 29 Legendary Shards: Telesto is a fusion rifle with an explosive twist. This exotic shoots void projectiles that attach onto enemies and explode after a short delay. This essentially lets you tag players with a timed explosive, letting you safely disengage from a fight once you land your shot.
Phoenix Protocol (Warlock) – 23 Legendary Shards: Phoenix Protocol is built to give you more perks for standing in your Well of Radiance. When you get kills or assists while standing in the well, you’ll receive super energy. Wear this chest piece if you’re the kind of Warlock who likes to plant your feet and shoot rather than running around.
Foetracer (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: Foetracer essentially turns your Hunter into a Predator. This exotic helmet visually marks your targets. You’ll do extra damage against marked enemies with low health, so this is an exotic weapon that will make Hunters live up to their name.
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.
