XUR – the weapon and gift merchant of the Destiny world and Agent of the Nine – is a key part of the game and materialises each weekend in different locations.
If you’ve been building up your Legendary Shards in Destiny 2 then there’s no doubt you’ll be desperate to find Xur and trade them for this weekend’s goodies.
Where will Xur appear this weekend and what is he selling?
Xur appears every week in a different location and sells a variety of wares.
He is exceptionally elusive and only appears at the weekends, which means that he can be quite tricky to track down.
The exotic merchant’s location used to be announced at 10am GMT but this has changed to 5pm GMT from now on.
It’s not yet clear where Xur will be making his appearance but rest assured the info will be posted here as soon as we know.
Players will want to make sure they stock up before he skips town – and this happens every Tuesday at 10am following the game’s weekly reset.
What was Xur selling last week?
- D.A.R.C.I. Exotic Sniper Rifle – 29 Legendary Shards
- Celestial Nighthawk Exotic Hunter Helmet – 23 Legendary Shards
- Hallowfire Heart Exotic Titan Chest Armor – 23 Legendary Shards
- Eye of Another World Exotic Warlock Helmet – 23 Legendary Shards
- Three of Coins – 31 Legendary Shards
- Fated Engram – 97 Legendary Shards

What’s the difference between Xur in Destiny 2 and the first game?
In the original Destiny you had to save up Strange Coins in order to purchase any of Xur’s wares.
Happily this system remains almost the same with the sole change that you’ll be collecting Legendary Shards instead of Strange Coins.
In Destiny you could earn Strange Coins by completing special events and activities like Raids and by dismantling any Exotic weapons and armour pieces that you’ve collected and don’t need anymore.
This process remains the same – take part in Raid and Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2 to gain Legendary Shards.
Worth noting is that Xur is no longer refined to social spaces but can show up in ever more curious spots including planets in Patrol zones.
