Each and every week in Destiny 2, Xur springs up at a random location starting on Friday. At this location, you can interact with Xur and purchase an assortment of Exotic goods. Given that Xur’s location is random, it can be a pain to manually cycle through all of his possible spawn locations.
Furthermore, because Xur acts as an Exotic vendor, it can be helpful to know what items he has before you waste time looking for him. During the week of August 23, Xur can be found at one of his signature locations selling an updated batch of Exotic armor pieces along with an Exotic weapon.
After August 27, you’ll need to wait until the following Friday to find 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 he’s selling before you head out? Below, we’ve put together a full guide explaining where to find Xur this week and every Exotic item he has up for purchase!
