Where Is Xur Today? (August 12-16) | Destiny 2 Xur Location And Exotic Items

Destiny 2 Xur Location

Xur participates in Destiny 2 every weekend, starting with a daily reset every Friday at 10am PST / 1:00 pm PST. He can appear anywhere on the map and anywhere in the tower.

To find him, go to the Courtyard transmat zone in the Tower. When you spawn, turn left and down the stairs into the Hangar area. When you arrive, turn left and run to the area’s northern boundary. Look for a set of steps that leads up to a catwalk, where Xur will be waiting.

Destiny 2 Xur Merciless

There was a time when the Merciless fusion rifle was one of the best exotics in Destiny 2. With its exotic perk, Maintain Momentum, you can charge your fusion blast faster with every non-fatal hit. This still kills the boss very quickly, but it’s better than some other weapons.

Merciless is still a lot of fun to employ in all kinds of content, especially old-school stuff that made it through the Beyond Light culling. It’s not any less powerful than it was in year one — in fact, it’s even more potent now that it’s in your energy slot. However, there are other better weapons to choose from.

Gwisin Vest

Destiny 2 Xur Gwisin Vest

Gwisin Vest may transform your Spectral Blades Super into a lethal weapon in the Crucible. The Exotic increases the duration of your Super, allowing you to kill more enemies with it. The vest replenishes Super energy if you get a kill and then use Spectral Blades’ stealth ability – the more kills you get before using stealth, the more energy you get.

Citan’s Ramparts

Destiny 2 Xur Citan's Ramparts

Citan’s Ramparts is a Titan Exotic that can be obtained during Season of the Worthy. Assault Barricade is an Exotic perk that allows you and your teammates to shoot through your Towering Barricade. It does, however, make your Barricade considerably weaker and more easily broken. It also lasts for a shorter period of time. This Exotic is extremely potent in PvP. It’s worth getting if you’re a sniper in Trials.

Eye Of Another World

The main benefit of Eye of Another World for Warlocks is the increase in ability recovery speed. This can be a handy Exotic if you’re running an ability-focused build, especially with the Solar 3.0 modifications and seasonal mods like Classy Recovery. It also emphasizes priority targets, making it easier to place your shots, and increases your Airborne Effectiveness for all of your weapons.

Exotic Cipher Quest

Xur wants you to finish 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches this week. As a reward for completing the mission, you will receive an Exotic Cipher. This item allows you to purchase antique Exotics from the Tower’s Monuments to Lost Light kiosk.
