Destiny 2 Xur Location - Fated Engrams Explained, What Time Does Xur Appear in Destiny 2?

Xur, Agent of the Nine, turns up every week in a different location, with a brand new stash of Exotic weapons and armor.

The most elusive Destiny 2 merchant of them all regularly offers the best rewards, with players flocking to the location of Xur each and every week. In this Destiny 2 Xur guide, we'll be detailing the various Xur locations at which the merchant from The Nine has appeared in the past, as well as his inventory of Exotic gear.

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.

Destiny 2 Xur Fated Engrams Guide

As part of the 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 now live in Destiny 2, 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.
