Where Is Xur Today? (January 13-17) - 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.


With 2023 kicking off properly this week, Xur has made a fresh stop in the Destiny 2 Solar system to deliver new Exotic gear and a few other items to help you complete your armory collection. In addition to Xur, there's also a new weekend kicking off in Trials of Osiris, in case you feel like hopping into the PvP arena. Here's where you can find Xur and what Exotics he's selling this week.

This week you can find Xur in the Tower, in the Hangar area. For his weapon, Xur is offering Suros Regime. Hunters can pick up the Orpheus Rig leg armor; Titans can grab the ACD/0 Feedback gauntlets; and for Warlocks, Xur has the Phoenix Protocol armor.

Spawn in using the Courtyard transmat zone in the Tower to find Xur this week. Head left and down the stairs to enter the Hangar section, then hang another left. Make your way to the north end of the area and look for a staircase that will take you onto a catwalk, where Xur is waiting.

Xur is present every weekend in Destiny 2, starting with the daily reset at 9 AM PT / 12 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.

Exotic Weapons

Suros Regime

No Caption Provided

A classic from the days of the original Destiny, Suros Regime is a solid Exotic for PvP action. It has rock-solid stats and stability as an auto rifle, but this weapon packs an extra kick with its perk Suros Legacy perk. The bottom half of the magazine will deal extra damage, has a chance to return health on a kill, and you can switch between two firing modes with this nostalgic weapon.

Dead Man's Tale

No Caption Provided

The key perk for Dead Man's Tale is Subsistence, which pops up often on this scout rifle. It's a pretty decent perk, as defeating enemies will partially reload the magazine from reserves, and it pairs nicely with the Accurized Rounds and Hand-Laid Stock roll on this gun.

  • Arrowhead Brake
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Subsistence
  • Hand-Laid Stock

This week's roll of Hawkmoon is one that we've seen plenty of over the months, with the perk on offer being Opening Shot. That gives you improved accuracy and range on the opening shot of an attack, useful to help you get into the flow of combat. While it's not a god-roll this week, Alloy Magazine and Heavy Grip make up for a lackluster Hawkmoon this week.

  • Chambered Compensator
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Opening Shot
  • Heavy Grip

Exotic Armor

Orpheus Rig

No Caption Provided

Orpheus Rig is generally a great option for Hunters specializing in Void builds, but this week's version of the archery leg armor happens to have a particularly great Resilience stat. That can help free you up to boost some other ability mods on your armor, and the Uncanny Arrows ability will leave your enemies quivering with fear as your Deadfall Anchors refund more ability energy back to you.

  • Mobility: 4
  • Resilience: 22
  • Recovery: 2
  • Discipline: 8
  • Intellect: 19
  • Strength: 6
  • Total: 61

ACD/0 Feedback Fence

No Caption Provided

ACD/0 Feedback Fence has a cool Rasputin-influenced design and it packs a heck of a punch, provided that you have the defense needed to absorb some punishing blows. Perfect for getting up close and personal with enemies, you'll be able to build up explosive energy with every attack that you give and receive, creating a powerful explosive counterattack that can annihilate any cannon fodder enemy around you.

  • Mobility: 7
  • Resilience: 11
  • Recovery: 15
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 18
  • Strength: 9
  • Total: 62

Phoenix Protocol

No Caption Provided

For the Warlock that specializes in using their Solar powers to aid their team, Phoenix Protocol is a terrific Exotic armor piece. Casting your Well of Radiance Super and defeating enemies within it will restore up to half your Super energy when it ends, allowing you to get that ability back up and running more quickly. Kills from teammates also add to Super restoration, and this armor piece has a fairly balanced roll of stats this week.

  • Mobility: 18
  • Resilience: 2
  • Recovery: 10
  • Discipline: 17
  • Intellect: 13
  • Strength: 2
  • Total: 62
