Where Is Xur Today? (September 8-12) Destiny 2 Exotic Items And Xur Location Guide


As Season 22’s story of vengeance ramps up, Xur has returned with a refreshed selection of Exotic and Legendary-class items. As usual, you’ll be able to pick up new rolls of Exotic armor, an Exotic weapon that you might have missed out on, and some new gear to add to your collection as you mix and match for that perfect Autumn armor outfit. Here’s where Xur is this weekend and what he has for sale.

This week you can find Xur on Nessus, in The Watcher’s Grave. For his weapon, Xur is offering Crimson. Hunters can pick up the Gemini Jester leg armor; Titans can grab the Helm of Saint-14 helmet; and Warlocks can buy the Crown of Tempests helmet.

Xur Location

Xur’s location on Nessus.

Head to Nessus and use the Watcher’s Grave transmat zone to find Xur this week. When you arrive, hop on your sparrow and head north toward the exit of the area. Look for a big tree with pink moss on the right side of the area. Climb up onto its big, flat branch, where you can reach Xur.

Xur Exotic and Legendary Items

  • Exotic Engram – 97 Legendary Shards
  • Crimson- 29 Legendary Shards
  • Gemini Jester – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Helm of Saint-14 – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Crown of Tempests – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Hawkmoon – 200 Legendary Shards, 125,000 Glimmer, 1 Ascendant Shard, 1 Exotic Cipher
  • Xenology quest – Free
  • Legendary weapons and armor – 50 Legendary Shards, 1,000 Glimmer

Xur also offers the Xenology quest every week, which requires you to complete 21 Vanguard Ops or win Crucible and Gambit matches so that you can earn an Exotic Cipher. These are normally used to buy old Exotics from a kiosk in the Tower, but you’ll now be able to spend them at Master Rahool

Crimson has popped up several times in Xur’s inventory over the last couple of months and is still an excellent hand cannon for your Kinetic slot. Superb at taking out cannon fodder enemies, Crimson fires a three-round burst from its large barrel. Even better, precision kills with Crimson will instantly reload this weapon. If you’re faced with a horde of Fallen or Hive, this weapon packs a punch and can wipe out scores of low-level enemies easily.

  • Banned Weapon
  • Smallbore
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Cruel Remedy
  • Heavy Grip

Hawkmoon (Exotic hand cannon)


This is one of those rare weeks where Hawkmoon actually has a desirable roll, as the Rangefinder perk works very well alongside other weapons in your arsenal. Combined with the other perks of this build, you’ve got a Hawkmoon that’s worth picking up this week.

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Rangefinder
  • Textured Grip

Xur is present every weekend in Destiny 2, starting with the daily reset at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET each Friday. His exact location is always a mystery when he first arrives, as he is not listed on the map, and for novice players, he can be easy to miss. However, there are a set number of locations where he takes up residence, including the Tower Hangar area, on Nessus in Watcher’s Grave, and in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ.
