In this complete Destiny 2 Xur guide, we'll be running over everything that makes the elusive merchant so unique in the game, as well as pinpointing the exact Destiny 2 Xur location each and every week. Make sure to keep an eye on this Xur guide, as we'll be updating it every Friday, when Xur reappears in the game.

Destiny 2 Xur Guide

The main thing you need to know about Xur is that he's extremely elusive. He'll only appear at the weekends (Friday through to Monday), and only in one specific location in Destiny 2 at a time. This means that he could potentially be anywhere on any given weekend, which means we'll be adding a different Destiny 2 Xur location section to this guide each and every weekend.

As of December 8, 2017, the time that Xur has appeared at has changed. Whereas Xur used to appear at 1 am PST/4 am EST, Destiny 2's elusive merchant will now be appearing at 9 am PST/12 pm EST. This change has just been announced by Bungie, but it will apply to all Xur dates moving forwards.

Where is Xur? Destiny 2 Xur Location December 1 - December 4

This Friday, December 8, Xur is back once again on Earth, just north of the Winding Cove landing zone.

As for Xur's inventory on December 8, the latter two Exotic items are actually Curse of Osiris Exotic items.

  • The Dragon's Shadow (Hunter chest armor) - 23 Legendary Shards
  • Nezarec's Sin (Warlock helmet) - 23 Legendary Shards
  • Prometheus Lens (Exotic trace rifle) - 29 Legendary Shards

Destiny 2 Xur Changes, New Fates Engrams

As part of the new changes to Destiny 2, announced by Bungie on November 29, Xur will be undergoing some changes over the coming month. Every time Xur reappears in Destiny 2, you'll be able to trade a certain amount of Legendary Shards for a new Fated Engram, which will reward players with a brand new Exotic weapon or armor item that they don't already own.

This new update to Xur, which is set to roll out on December 12, is aimed at improving the amount of duplicate Exotics that most players seem to be obtaining through Xur. We'll have more news regarding the changes to Xur that are incoming as soon as Bungie announces anything.

When will Xur appear in Destiny 2?

More recently however, Bungie posted the image below through their official twitter account, outlining the upcoming activities that players can expect to be in Destiny 2 from the week after it launches. According to the image, Xur will be appearing in Destiny 2 on September 15.

Destiny 2 Xur Legendary Shards Currency

Back in the original Destiny, you had to save up enough Strange Coins in order to purchase items from Xur. This system is basically the same in Destiny 2, except a new currency called Legendary Shards is replacing the Strange Coins.

You could earn Strange Coins from doing special events and activities, such as Raids, Nightfall Strikes, and by dismantling any Exotic weapons or armor pieces that you weren't using any more. This is more or less the same in Destiny 2, and you'll have to gain entry to missions like Nightfall Strikes and Raids if you want to earn enough Legendary Shards in order to purchase Exotic gear from Xur.

Destiny 2 Vendors Guide

Basically speaking, vendors are the NPCs who you'll go to in Destiny 2 to purchase new weapons, armor, and other gear items. They will likely be found on all four of the planets in Destiny 2, these being IO, Titan, Nessus, and the European Dead Zone on Earth, where the Farm social hub is located.

But vendors don't work exactly like they did in the first Destiny, as Bungie senior gameplay designer Jon Weisnewski revealed: "There has been some changes to how the vendors work. Predominantly, you're going to be looking to engrams that drop and leveling up reputation with different vendors to get packages to find weapons. [...] The faction vendors are there, and there will be a set of Dead Orbit weapons, a set of New Monarchy weapons, a set of Future War Cult weapons."

So, rather than just selling weapons and armor to players, you're going to have a choice of which faction to take your Engrams to, in order to level up your relationship with said faction. It's an interesting twist on the vendors, and we'll keep an eye out for any particularly nice bonuses that any of the factions offer.
