Destiny 2: Where to find Xur for the weekend of August 7


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. Lately, he carries Fated Engrams, which guarantee players an exotic drop they don’t already have from the collection of exotics available before the release of Shadowkeep.

Where to find Xur

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, and everything you need to know about what he’s offering this week.

Xur’s wares for this week

(August 28 to September 1)

This week, Xur is hanging out on Titan. Load into The Rig landing zone and start running to your left until you reach the edge of the map. Then turn right and run forward, hugging the railing on the edge of the map. Once you’re out from under the overpass above you, you’ll see a little building directly to your left. There’s a little stairway right next to it, so look for that if you’re lost. Go through the building’s door and you’ll find Xur in the back of the room.

Here is the exact location:

Xur Destiny Titan

And here’s what Xur has for wares.

Sunshot – 29 Legendary Shards: If you’ve always been jealous of Hunters’ Golden Gun super, Sunshot is about as close as you can get to mirroring that ability. This fun hand cannon shoots explosive solar rounds. It’ll also mark any targets that take damage from the weapon.

Contraverse Hold (Warlocks) – 23 Legendary Shards: If your Warlock is a master of the Void arts, Contraverse Hold might be worth checking out. These exotic arms are built around your void grenade in interesting ways. With these, you’ll resist damage while charging your grenade with Chaos Accelerant. When your charged grenade hits an enemy, a random amount of grenade energy will return to you, making these arms a little unpredictable.

Gwisin Vest (Hunter) – 23 Legendary Shards: Gwisin Vest is a chest piece that rewards stealth. Anytime you vanish after getting a kill with your spectral blades, you’ll gain super energy. So, the more you hide in the shadows, the quicker you’ll be able to launch a powerful attack.

Actium War Rig (Titan) – 23 Legendary Shards: With a name like Actium War Rig, you probably know what you’re getting from this exotic chest piece. While equipped, this will steadily reload some of your equipped auto rifle or machine gun’s ammo from its reserves. That means you can keep shooting your highest rate-of-fire weapons longer, turning you into a bona fide war machine.

Isochronal Engram – 97 Legendary Shards: You can only buy one of these Engrams per week, per account, but if you’re filling out your exotic collection, it’s worth it. The Fated Engram automatically gives you something you’re missing from the Destiny 2 Year 1 and 2 exotic sets, and now Forsaken as well.

Five of Swords: Xur is also offering the Five of Swords challenge this week. This challenge introduces modifiers to Prestige Nightfall missions for increased rewards.
