Where Is Xur Today? (April 19-23) Destiny 2 Exotic Items And Xur Location Guide

Here's where you can find Xur this weekend and what the Agent of the Nine has for sale.


We're drawing closer to The Final Shape in Destiny 2, and if you're planning to hit the ground running when you take on the Witness, you'll want to make the weekly trek to see the Exotic gear Xur is offering for a limited time. 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 Skyburner's Oath. Hunters can pick up Fr0st-EE5 leg armor; Titans can grab the Ursa Furiosa gauntlets; and Warlocks can buy the Starfire Protocol armor.

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.

Exotic Armor

(Exotic Hunter leg armor)


A solid option for PvP, Fr0st-EE5 offer increased grenade, melee, and dodge regeneration while sprinting. The mobility stat on these boots are average considering the emphasis to keep running during firefights, but there are some nice resilience and discipline stats here for when you face down enemies.

  • Mobility: 12
  • Resilience: 16
  • Recovery: 6
  • Discipline: 18
  • Intellect: 2
  • Strength: 10
  • Total: 64

(Exotic Titan gauntlets)

Ursa Furiosa
Ursa Furiosa

This is an Exotic that'll benefit you if you enjoy using your Sentinel Shield to absorb damage, as you'll move faster while guarding and convert all that guarded damage to Super energy. The resilience on this Exotic could be better, but it's decent and bolstered by a high strength stat that'll make your shield and melee blows hit harder when you unleash them.

  • Mobility: 2
  • Resilience: 12
  • Recovery: 18
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 11
  • Strength: 20
  • Total: 65

(Exotic Warlock chest armor)

Starfire Protocol
Starfire Protocol

For a while, Starfire Protocol was the Warlock Exotic to have for high-level PvE activities, until Bungie nerfed it. It's still decent, as the Fusion Harness perk gives you a super-quick grenade cooldown rate so long as you deal damage while dealing empowered weapon blows. This will in turn grant you more rift energy, to help cast your empowered rift subclass ability more quickly and keep the cycle going. This Exotic has a very high recovery stat in case you're using Solar effects from the seasonal artifact to quickly heal yourself, but discipline could be higher and resilience is extremely low, so this could turn you into a glass cannon.

  • Mobility: 2
  • Resilience: 3
  • Recovery: 32
  • Discipline: 12
  • Intellect: 8
  • Strength: 12
  • Total: 69

Exotic Weapons

Skyburner's Oath (Exotic scout rifle)

Skyburner's Oath
Skyburner's Oath

One of the best weapons for dealing with Cabal, Skyburner's Oath is an overhauled classic with a wide range of effects. If you have its catalyst, it'll punch right through Cabal Phoenix shields, and it can be used as either a scout rifle when aiming or as a slug-launcher when firing from the hip.

  • Slug Rifle
  • Extended Barrel
  • Extended Mag
  • For the Empire
  • Short-Action Stock

Hawkmoon (Exotic hand cannon)


Hawkmoon this week is an average roll, as you're getting Snapshot Sights as the weekly weapon perk. This lets you aim down sights more quickly.

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Arrowhead Brake
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Snapshot Sights
  • Heavy 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.
