Xur, the strange Exotic item seller and Agent of the Nine, is fickle as ever in Destiny 2. Xur brings with him an unpredictable roster of Exotics, as well as a suite of older legendary armor and weapons that can help fill your collection if you are missing them.
Appearing in the game weekly from Friday until reset, the merchant hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny 2 — including inside the Tower.
Here is where to find Xur in Destiny 2, and what he is selling.

What is worth buying from Xur this week?
Here’s some more specific advice on Xur’s wares this week:
Black Talon is a powerful Exotic sword from the Forsaken expansion. Its Exotic perk, Crow’s Wings, allows it to fire a Void projectile after two subsequent heavy attacks. Its trait, Tireless Blade, regenerates ammo on certain powerful attack kills.
Black Talon is a very powerful sword right now. Adding a ranged attack to a sword takes away a lot of the weapon type’s usual danger. Instead of slamming your blade into enemies in their face, you can blast at them from a safe distance. If you don’t have Black Talon, you should add it to your collection.
Lucky Pants are very powerful in select situations. Their Exotic perk, Illegally Modded Holster, allows you to ready hand cannons very quickly, and it also increases accuracy and for your first shot. You also get bonus damage for Kinetic hand cannons if they’re fully reloaded when you ready them. For certain hand cannon builds — like any with the Malfeasance hand cannon — these boots are incredible. But they do require using a hand cannon, so they’re very meta dependent.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 63 total stats.
Synthoceps buff melee damage and super damage by a flat amount while you’re surrounded by three or more enemies. This is a very powerful Exotic in PvE.
The Biotic Enhancements intrinsic perk offers “increased melee lunge range” as well as “improved melee and Super damage when surrounded.” These are one of the most powerful Titan Exotics in the game, and always benefit you for wearing them. If you don’t have these, buy them!
Xur’s roll this week comes with 70 total stats.
Getaway Artist is a Warlock Exotic from Season of the Drifter. Its Exotic perk is Dynamic Duo. This perk lets you sacrifice your grenade in exchange for a powerful Arc turret that follows you around. Getaway Artist is a really fun and cool Warlock Exotic. If you don’t have it in your collection yet, you should definitely pick it up.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 64 total stats.
Exotic Cipher quest
Starting in Beyond Light, Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher. The Exotic Cipher lets you buy old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the Tower. You’ll need these items and some other currencies to pick up Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.
This week, Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches. By finishing the quest, you’ll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you want.
