Destiny 2: Where Is Xur Today? Location and Exotic Items for July 29-August 2


The eldritch horror, Xur, is now live in Destiny 2 for the weekend until next week's reset. If you're looking to get your some shiny new Exotic armor or weapons for your Guardian, look no further.

Each week, Xûr has a random assortment of Exotic armor, one for each Guardian class, as well as a random Exotic Weapon and an Exotic Engram available for purchase. In addition to his Exotic wares, he's got a random collection of Legendary weapons and armor to deck out your Guardians.

We've rounded up all the info on Xûr for the week including where to find Xûr, which Exotic weapons and armor are available, as well as which Legendary weapons you should pick up, either for PvE or PvP.

Where Is Xûr Today?

Xûr's location can be found at The Tower on July 29 through August 2. To reach him, travel to the landing point at The Courtyard and make your way to the Hangar. You'll find ol' snake-face chilling near the stairs at the back of the Hangar area.

What's Xûr Selling Today?

Xûr has at least one good find this week. Check out this exotic gear!

Exotic Engram

The Colony – Exotic Grenade Launcher

ST0MP-EE5 – Exotic Hunter Leg Armor

  • 4 Mobility
  • 22 Resilience
  • 10 Recovery
  • 9 Discipline
  • 17 Intellect
  • 2 Strength
  • Total: 64

ACD/0 Feedback Fence – Exotic Titan Gauntlets

  • 10 Mobility
  • 8 Resilience
  • 14 Recovery
  • 12 Discipline
  • 10 Intellect
  • 6 Strength
  • Total: 60

Karnstein Armlets – Exotic Warlock Gauntlets

  • 19 Mobility
  • 10 Resilience
  • 3 Recovery
  • 14 Discipline
  • 7 Intellect
  • 10 Strength
  • Total: 63

Honestly, exotic armor strikes out this week with low stat rolls and not great stat distribution. Pick up the ST0MP-EE5 if you need them, or perhaps the grenade launcher on sale, but there's nothing you really need to have this week.

Exotic Weapons

Hawkmoon – Exotic Hand Cannon

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Arrowhead Brake
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Rangefinder
  • Heavy Grip

Dead Man's Tale – Exotic Scout Rifle

  • Cranial Spike
  • Extended Barrel
  • High-Caliber Rounds
  • Vorpal Weapon
  • Hand-Laid Stock

The roll for Dead Man's Tale this week is quite good! Vorpal weapon and High-Caliber Rounds make a great pair of perks for a weapon that's deadly in both PvE and PvP. I'd recommend picking this one up!

Legendary Weapons

Bad Omens – Rocket Launcher

  • Confined Launch/ Smart Drift Control
  • Alloy Casing/High-Velocity Rounds
  • Tracking Module
  • Cluster Bomb
  • Blast Radius Masterwork

Toil and Trouble – Shotgun

  • Barrel Shroud/Corkscrew Rifling
  • Assault Mag/Extended Mag
  • Threat Detector
  • Snapshot Sights
  • Reload Speed Masterwork

The Fool's Remedy – Sidearm

  • Tactic SAS/Target SAS
  • Armor-Piercing Rounds/Light Mag
  • Feeding Frenzy
  • Quickdraw
  • Stability Masterwork

Whispering Slab – Combat Bow

  • Flexible String/Natural String
  • Natural Fletching/Straight Fletching
  • Hip-Fire Frip
  • Sympathetic Arsenal
  • Accuracy Masterwork

Fraction Fire – Submachine Gun

  • Arrowhead Brake/Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Accurized Rounds/Tactical Mag
  • Field Prep
  • Rampage
  • Handling Masterwork

Empty Vessel – Grenade Launcher

  • Confined Launch/Countermass
  • Blinding Grenades/Implosion Rounds
  • Surplus
  • Swashbuckler
  • Vanguard's Vindication
  • Reload Speed Masterwork

Survivor's Epitaph – Hand Cannon

  • Arrowhead Brake/Full Bore
  • Extended Mag/Flared Magwell
  • Surplus
  • Kill Clip
  • One Quiet Moment
  • Impact Masterwork

This week's notable rolls include the Empty Vessel grenade launcher which comes with blinding grenades and the swashbuckler perk that could make it quite good, the Fraction Fire machinegun that has field prep and rampage that should make it deadly, and the Bad Omens rocket launcher which has got tracking module and cluster bombs that are always good for PvP and especially PvE.

Lightkin Bond

The Warlock armor this week is pretty rubbish! The gauntlets are very spikey in places, but even that is hardly worth buying.

Titan Legendary Armor

For Titans, Xûr is selling the Lightkin set which includes:

Lightkin Gauntlets

  • 7 Mobility
  • 19 Resilience
  • 6 Recovery
  • 11 Discipline
  • 14 Intellect
  • 2 Strength
  • Total: 59

Lightkin Chest Armor

  • 2 Mobility
  • 2 Resilience
  • 30 Recovery
  • 24 Discipline
  • 2 Intellect
  • 2 Strength
  • Total: 62

Lightkin Helmet

  • 10 Mobility
  • 2 Resilience
  • 16 Recovery
  • 14 Discipline
  • 2 Intellect
  • 14 Strength
  • Total: 58

Lightkin Leg Armor

  • 9 Mobility
  • 2 Resilience
  • 17 Recovery
  • 13 Discipline
  • 14 Intellect
  • 2 Strength
  • Total: 57

Lightkin Mark

Again, Titan armor is also underwhelming. The chest piece is extremely lopsided that could be good for buildcrafting, but with only 62 stats overall I doubt it's worth the trouble.

Hunter Legendary Armor

For Hunters, Xûr is selling the Lightkin set which includes:

Lightkin Gauntlets

  • 7 Mobility
  • 10 Resilience

  • Total: 59

Lightkin Chest Armor

  • 16 Mobility
  • 2 Resilience
  • 12 Recovery
  • 20 Discipline
  • 8 Intellect
  • 2 Strength
  • Total: 60

Lightkin Helmet

  • 2 Mobility
  • 2 Resilience
  • 26 Recovery
  • 10 Discipline
  • 14 Intellect
  • 6 Strength
  • Total: 60

Lightkin Leg Armor

  • 8 Mobility
  • 16 Resilience
  • 8 Recovery
  • 11 Discipline
  • 2 Intellect
  • 13 Strength
  • Total: 58

Lightkin Cloak

Somehow Hunters have managed to do even worse than the other classes with zero interesting rolls — seems legendary armor is a wash this week!
