Where Is Xur Today? (May 17-21) 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.


Mere weeks remain between now and the launch of The Final Shape expansion, and with several Exotic weapons getting fine-tuned for the big fight ahead, now is a good time to say hello to your favorite roaming arms dealer. Here's where you can find Xur 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 Arbalest. Hunters can pick up Raiju's Harness; Titans can grab Aeon Safe; and Warlocks can buy The Stag.

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

Raiju's Harness (Exotic Hunter armor)

Raiju's Harness
Raiju's Harness

For the Hunter who wants more flexibility with their Arc Super, Raiju's Harness makes some neat modifications to that ability. You can deactivate the Super early to create a blinding explosion and gain a temporary bonus to Arc damage. Your Arc staff will also consume less energy when you're not attacking with it. The stats here are mostly well balanced, with mobility being the best, but resilience is very low. Intellect is average, so you'll want to mod those two stats specifically.

  • Mobility: 18
  • Resilience: 2
  • Recovery: 12
  • Discipline: 7
  • Intellect: 14
  • Strength: 9
  • Total: 62

Aeon Safe (Exotic Titan gauntlets)

No Caption Provided

Like other Exotic armor pieces in the Aeon line, Aeon Safe has three unique Armor Mods that work well with team-focused builds. Sect of Insight specializes in empowering your allies, and the stats on this roll aren't too bad. Resilience is pretty good and intellect is very high here, allowing you to gain quicker cooldowns on your Super abilities. Discipline is very low and mobility is unnecessarily high, so you'll have to plan your build accordingly to work around these.

  • Mobility: 13
  • Resilience: 16
  • Recovery: 6
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 20
  • Strength: 11
  • Total: 68

The Stag (Exotic Warlock helmet)

No Caption Provided

While it looks like it belongs in Alan Wake 2, The Stag is actually a Destiny 2 classic. This Exotic buffs Warlock Rifts to reduce damage for allies, and if you fall in battle, you'll leave a healing rift behind for your teammates. This is a pretty good roll that goes all in on the identity of this Exotic, as the recovery stat is almost maxed out. Resilience is sadly low and intellect could be better, but this is a good Exotic to grab in case you plan to be the team medic.

  • Mobility: 2
  • Resilience: 2
  • Recovery: 30
  • Discipline: 18
  • Intellect: 6
  • Strength: 7
  • Total: 65

Exotic Weapons

Arbalest (Exotic linear fusion rifle)

No Caption Provided

A very nice linear fusion rifle, Arbalest has two great abilities. Disruption Break lets you make enemies more vulnerable to kinetic weapons after you break their shields with Arbalest, and Compounding Force is perfect for breaking through the defenses of pesky Barrier Champions.

  • Compounding Force
  • Extended Barrel
  • Projection Fuse
  • Disruption Break
  • Composite Stock

Hawkmoon (Exotic hand cannon)

No Caption Provided

This is the second week in a row we've gotten a Quickdraw perk on Hawkmoon, so unless you really need the Exotic hand cannon, feel free to give it a skip again.

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Polygonal Rifling
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Quickdraw
  • Textured 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.
