Where Is Xur Today? (May 14-18) - Destiny 2 Xur Location And Exotics Guide

Visit Xur for the first time in the Season of the Splicer to grab some fresh Exotics.


Update: Xur has departed with his Exotics for the weekend of May 7-11. You can find what Xur is stocking for the May 21-25 weekend right here.

The Season of the Splicer is here in Destiny 2, bringing new weapons and armor, a new six-player activity, and new transmog capabilities. Xur returns for his weekly visit to bring you new Exotics for your collection as well, giving you a chance to outfit your Guardian characters with a new weapon and new pieces of armor. Here's where to find Xur and what he's selling.

Head to Nessus, in the Watcher's Grave area, to find Xur this week. For his weapon, Xur is offering The Jade Rabbit. Hunters can pick up the Ophidia Spathe chest armor; for Titans, there's the Mask of the Quiet One helmet; and for Warlocks, Xur has Skull of Dire Ahamkara helmet.

Xur Location

Spawn in at the Watcher's Grave transmat zone and head north to find Xur. You'll need to travel toward the far end of the area, where a large pink tree is growing beside where Caiatl's land tank has set up shop. Climb the tree up onto its flat branches to find Xur overlooking the area.

Go to the very north end of Watcher's Grave and climb the big tree there to locate Xur.

Xur appears every weekend in Destiny 2, starting with the daily reset at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET each Friday. The thing is, it's not always clear where he'll show up. Xur can hang out at one of several locations, including in the Tower Hangar area, on Nessus in Watcher's Grave, and in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ. His inventory also changes each week, so it's worth revisiting him on the weekends for new weapons and rolls on Exotic armor.

Xur Exotic Items

In the final week of the Season of the Chosen, Xur brings The Jade Rabbit. If you like scout rifles, this is a great one that's been a PvP mainstay since it was released way back in Year One. It's highly accurate and powerful at long ranges, which means it's often devastating in the right circumstances in the Crucible. If you're not a fan of his other options, Xur also sells an Exotic engram that will decrypt into an Exotic you don't already own. Just note that you can only buy one per week, and the engram is specific to the character class who buys it--so if you're trying to get a new Titan helmet, don't buy the engram with your Warlock. He also has the new Xenology Quest, which rewards an Exotic Cipher you can use to purchase Exotics from either Xur or the Tower's Monument to Lost Lights. The quest requires you to either complete Strikes or win matches in Gambit and the Crucible.

  • Exotic Engram -- 97 legendary shards
  • The Jade Rabbit -- 29 legendary shards
  • Ophidia Spathe -- 23 legendary shards
  • Mask of the Quiet One -- 23 legendary shards
  • Skull of Dire Ahamkara -- 23 legendary shards
  • Xenology quest -- free

The Jade Rabbit (Scout Rifle)

The trick with The Jade Rabbit is to land both body and headshots for maximum damage.

The Jade Rabbit is among the best scout rifles in Destiny 2, and while that didn't mean much for a while--scouts were pretty weak in the overall weapon meta--they've recently been boosted to be more viable in the Crucible and beyond. The Jade Rabbit is a great choice if you like scout rifles thanks to its power and range. It gets bonus damage when you chain together a few body shots and then land a headshot, making it possible to knock out distant enemy Guardians very quickly. Pulling off the chain for bonus damage also returns ammo to your magazine so you can keep firing.

Ophidia Spathe (Hunter)

What's better than one knife? Two knives.

Like knives? Of course you do. With Ophidia Spathe, Hunters get a second throwing knife charge for their Solar subclasses. That's just about all, but you can do a lot with a second throwing knife charge, depending on your character build. Weighted Knives can be extremely deadly in the Crucible, and the Fan of Knives ability in PvE is an excellent way to keep your other abilities charging quickly. Plus, it's just nice to have another melee charge whenever you need it.

Mask of the Quiet One (Titan)

No Caption Provided

Unfortunately for Titans, Xur's Exotic offering this week is the same as last week: Mask of the Quiet One, but at least it's a different, slightly better overall roll. The helmet gives you ability energy whenever you take damage, helping you to get more options in battle more quickly. If you're critically damaged and you manage to make a kill, you'll regain full health--so wearing it in PvP battles can give you a serious boost, provided you're victorious against at least one foe.

Skull of Dire Ahamkara (Warlock)

No Caption Provided

Warlocks this week get a very good roll on a very reliable Exotic helmet. Skull of Dire Ahamkara makes you a lot tougher to kill when you throw your Nova Bomb Super, which makes it useful in all situations, but especially in PvP. It also gives you Super energy back for kills you make with the Super, so using it to clear out a bunch of enemies at once can get you your Super back pretty quickly. It's not as good as the Exotic was before Bungie nerfed it some time ago, but this is still a good bet if you want to be throwing a lot of Nova Bombs without getting shot out of the air in the process.
