Every week in Destiny 2, Xur can be found at a random location starting on Friday. At this location, you can speak with him and purchase various Exotic items. Given that Xur’s location is randomized though, it can be somewhat time-consuming to seek him out. What’s more, because Xur acts as an Exotic goods vendor, it can be useful to pay him a visit as he may have something worth buying.
During the week of August 16, you’ll be able to find Xur and purchase a new batch of Exotic armor pieces as well as an Exotic weapon. After August 20, you’ll need to wait until the following Friday to speak with Xur again. At that time, Xur will have moved to a new location and his inventory will refresh.
Need help finding Xur in Destiny 2, or simply want to know what Exotics he’s selling before you take the time to hunt him down? Below, we’ve put together a guide that’ll explain where you can find Xur and what Exotic items are listed in his inventory in Destiny 2 during the week of August 16!
