Destiny 2’s Xur will be back offering up new exotics this weekend as the latest season slowly draws to a close.
UPDATE: The Destiny 2 Xur update has happened, and the merchant is back in the game, selling his exotic wares on Earth’s EDZ. His inventory currently includes:
- Tractor Cannon Heavy Shotgun
- Hawkmoon Kinetic Hand Cannon
- Dead Man’s Tale
- Lucky Pants Hunter Leg Armor
- Peacekeepers Titan Leg Armor
- Aeon Soul
- Talons of the Eagle Kinetic Scout Rifle
- Gnawing Hunger Energy Auto Rifle
- Honor’s Edge Heavy Sword
- Widow’s Bite Energy Sniper Rifle
- IKELOS_SR_v1.0.2 Energy Sniper Rifle
- Survivor’s Epitaph Kinetic Hand Cannon
ORIGINAL: Later this month, new changes and updates will be coming to the game, alongside fresh story reveals. But until then, fans can rely on Xur popping back onto the map to offer a fresh supply of loot and gear.
Where Is Xur In Destiny 2 Today?
Xur will return to Destiny 2 today, August 5, at 6pm BST and won’t be available to visit until then.
When he does arrive back in orbit, Guardians will have to track him down to his exact location, as Bungie never provide news on where he might be on the map.
The good news is that Xur can only spawn in a few locations, which usually includes The Tower, The EDZ and Nessus.
Xur will return with a selection of exotic weapons, armour and legendary items, all of which will have different rolls for Guardians to check out. Some weeks include cracking deals and combinations, while others can be a little more humdrum.
And while Guardians have to track down Xur themselves, you can count on the Destiny 2 community performing this task quickly, with the merchant usually found within minutes of returning to the game. Xur will be available to visit for several days, disappearing next week on August 9.
Last week, Xur was selling these exotics: The Colony Heavy Grenade Launcher, Hawkmoon Kinetic Hand Cannon, Dead Man’s Tale, St0mp-EE5 Hunter Leg Armor, ACD/0 Feedback, Fence Titan Gauntlets, and Karnstein Armlets.
He was also selling these legendary weapons: Bad Omens Heavy Rocket Launcher, Toil and Trouble Kinetic Shotgun, The Fool’s Remedy Energy Sidearm, Whispering Slab Kinetic Combat Bow, Friction Fire Kinetic Submachine Gun, Empty Vessel Energy Grenade Launcher, and Survivor’s Epitaph Kinetic Hand Cannon.
When the latest gear is confirmed, we will make sure to add the latest Xur location for August 5, and what exotics he is selling at the top of this article. Some weeks can be better than others, and as Bungie recently removed an exploit that made it possible to trap Xur in an old instance, Guardians will want to ensure they’re not missing out on any good rolls.
