Where to Find Xur in Destiny 2
Out of all of the characters in the original Destiny, there was one that players have been hoping to see again in Destiny 2 much more so than any of the others, and that character is Xur. This agent of the Nine was everyone’s best friend as he showed up every weekend selling coveted exotics, and he’s back to do it again in Destiny 2. Unlike the first game though, you have a much larger net to cast if you want to nail down his location.
While in the first game Xur appeared only in one of the social spaces, he can appear in any of the public play areas in Destiny 2. Yes, that means Xur can appear on Earth, Nessus, Io, and Titan. Since it’s completely random, there’s no surefire way to know exactly where he’s going to be. What you can do is log in as soon as you know he’s around and start searching. Split up from your friends as you each pick a world to search really quickly, and once he’s located you can fast travel to a nearby Landing Zone and trade with him.
Xur sells a small selection of exotic weapons and armor for Legendary Shards (which you can obtain by dismantling legendary gear. Start saving up, because he’s sure to have something worthwhile waiting for you when he shows his tentacle face. Also, be sure to check back here each week as we pinpoint Xur’s location in Destiny 2 and run down exactly what he has on offer.
