Xur is every player's favorite mystical merchant that sells Exotic and Legendary wares to Guardians around the solar system. As quite the shy guy, Xur only shows up on the weekends from Friday's daily reset time to Tuesday's weekly reset time. This guide details what Xur is selling, notes any must-have god roll or a high-stat gear you should know about, and pinpoints the Xur location.
Where is Xur this week?
The Xur location changes every week, but you can find him at Watcher's Grave, Nessus currently. From the landing zone, go down the path and climb up the giant red tree. You’ll find the Agent of the Nine standing on the lowest tree branch.
What is Xur selling this week?
This week, Xur is selling mid 60-stat Exotic armor pieces that could be worth picking up if you don't have them. Hunters have 65-stat ST0MP-EE5 legs without any stand-out stat ranges. The Titan's Wormgod Caress arms come with 65 total stat and a whopping 29 recovery, but resilience is only at three. Felwinter's Helm for Warlocks has 64 total stat, and also doesn't have notable stat ranges. On top of that, Xur is selling the Gensym Knight Legendary armor set. The stats aren't anything to rave about, but the armor is rare.
If don't have classic Destiny 2 weapons like The Colony Exotic grenade launcher and the Ikelos SMG, those are worth picking up.
Also, you can grab a Legendary weapon to try out. Otherwise, if there's a weapon you've been hoping to craft, purchase the regular one from Xur and apply Deepsight Harmonizers to extract its pattern.

Also, you can pick up the Xenology quest from Xur every week. Play through 21 Vanguard activities, or win Crucible and Gambit matches to get an Exotic Cipher. Use the Exotic Cipher currency — you can hold five at a time — at the Monument to Lost Lights for an Exotic weapon. Completing missions in the Exotic Mission Rotator playlist gives bonus progress to the Xenology quest.
