Where Is Xur Today? (June 30-July 4) 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.


Like a festive season firearms dealer who decides to appear every week instead of once a year, Xur is back and ready to sell some new goods. As usual, he's brought with him a selection of Exotics and Legendary-class gear, just in time for a Trials of Osiris weekend. Here's where you can find Xur this week and what the Agent of the Nine has for sale.

This week you can find Xur on Nessus, in the Watcher's Grave. For his weapon, Xur is offering the Crimson hand cannon. Hunters can pick up Orpheus Rig leg armor; Titans can grab the Helm of Saint-14 helmet; and Warlocks can buy the Nezarec's Sin helmet.

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

Helm of Saint-14 (Exotic Titan helmet)

Helm of Saint-14
Helm of Saint-14

A classic from the Destiny 2 vault, the Helm of Saint-14 is a great option for Titans who like to pop their Ward of Dawn Super. Starless Night blinds enemies who enter the bubble, allies gain an overshield, and if you're running with Sentinel Shield, guarding with it will also blind your opponents. This build has a high intellect stat, which is great for building Supers quickly, but the high mobility isn't well-suited for Titans. Discipline is also very low, and the rest of the stats are around average at best.

  • Mobility: 14
  • Resilience: 8
  • Recovery: 11
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 20
  • Strength: 9
  • Total: 64

Orpheus Rig (Exotic Hunter leg armor)

Hunters who can't wait to unleash a volley of arrows from their Void Super will love the Orpheus Rig Exotic, as it has a great perk for archers. It provides ability energy for each target tethered by Deadfall anchors, and Moebius Quiver gains an additional shot. For its stats, it has pretty good resilience, mobility, and strength. Intellect is the highest number here, but conversely, discipline and recovery are very low.

  • Mobility: 14
  • Resilience: 14
  • Recovery: 7
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 20
  • Strength: 9
  • Total: 66

Nezarec's Sin (Exotic Warlock helmet)

Nezarec's Sin
Nezarec's Sin

A classic all-star, Nezarec's Sin has been around since before Guardians were banishing that Disciple of the Witness back into oblivion. Basically, any Void damage you do while this helmet is equipped will help increase your ability recharge rate, allowing you to use those powers more often. As for the stats, recovery, discipline, and intellect have an almost even spread of high numbers, but mobility and strength are very low here.

  • Mobility: 7
  • Resilience: 11
  • Recovery: 16
  • Discipline: 16
  • Intellect: 14
  • Strength: 2
  • Total: 66

Exotic Weapons

Crimson (Exotic hand cannon)


Officially, Crimson definitely doesn't exist if you're ignoring all the Guardians with gun-blades in the Tower, but unofficially, this Exotic hand cannon can regularly be found tearing apart the competition in PvP. A great weapon for multiplayer, Crimson essentially fires like a pulse rifle and hits like a freight train thanks to its weapon class. Its secondary perk, Cruel Remedy, makes it even more deadly as kills with this weapon heal the wielder and precision kills also refill the magazine.

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

Hawkmoon (Exotic hand cannon)


Hawkmoon is actually very desirable this week, as the Eye of the Storm perk makes it great for PvP. The lower your health, the better the weapon performs, making this build a solid choice for the Crucible in a shootout.

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Fluted Barrel
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Smooth Grip

Dead Man's Tale (Exotic scout rifle)

Dead Man's Tale
Dead Man's Tale

Unfortunately for Dead Man's Tale, this week's roll is mid at best. While Outlaw is useful for clearing the field of red-bar enemies and granting you a quicker reload speed in return, the rest of the perks on this build don't synergize too well with it.

  • Cranial Spike
  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Outlaw
  • Fitted Stock

Xur also offers the Xenology quest every week, which requires you to complete 21 Vanguard strikes 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 from this season, you'll be able to spend them at Master Rahool to get the Exotics that you want. The cap on Exotic Ciphers has also increased, as you'll now be able to hold up to five of them at a time.

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.
