Where Is Xur Today? (September 1-5) Destiny 2 Exotic Items And Xur Location Guide


Things are heating up in Season of the Witch, and with a reprised Crota’s End raid debuting this weekend, now is a great time to check in with Xur. The traveling arms dealer is back, bringing with him a refreshed inventory of Exotic gear, legendary-class weapons, and more. Here’s where Xur is this weekend and what he has for sale.

This week, you can find Xur in the EDZ, in the Winding Cove area. For his weapon, Xur is offering Prometheus Lens. Hunters can pick up the Orpheus Rig leg armor; Titans can grab the Hallowfire Heart chest armor; and Warlocks can buy the Getaway Artist gauntlets.

Xur Location

Xur's location in the EDZ.
Xur’s location in the EDZ.

Spawn in at the Winding Cove transmat zone, then hop on your sparrow and go north. Take the collapsed overpass on the left and look for a cave near the bend in the road. Follow the tunnel through the cliff face to reach a higher ridge where a Fallen dropship has crashed; you’ll find Xur waiting there.

Exotic Armor

Orpheus Rig (Exotic Hunter leg armor)

For Hunters who are using their Void subclass, this Exotic can come in pretty handy. You’ll get ability energy for each target tethered by Deadfall Anchors, and the Moebius Quiver gains an additional shot. For stats, resilience, intellect, strength, and mobility all share the same above-average number, but recovery and discipline will need to be increased with some mods.

  • Mobility: 14
  • Resilience: 14
  • Recovery: 6
  • Discipline: 2
  • Intellect: 14
  • Strength: 14
  • Total: 64

Hallowfire Heart (Exotic Titan chest armor)

Hallowfire Heart

Loreley’s Splendor might be the go-to Exotic for Solar Titans, but Hallowfire Heart is a pretty great alternative focused on your Super. Solar takedowns while standing in a sunspot will generate another Sunspot, the recharge rate of your Solar abilities is greatly improved when your Super meter is full, and you gain a small boost to the airborne effectiveness stat. This Exotic has high stats for recovery, discipline, and strength, which tie in well to its Super-centric identity, but resilience and intellect will need to be buffed.

  • Mobility: 4
  • Resilience: 7
  • Recovery: 23
  • Discipline: 16
  • Intellect: 6
  • Strength: 12
  • Total: 68

Getaway Artist (Exotic Warlock gauntlets)

Getaway Artist
Getaway Artist

Arc Warlocks looking for extra firepower should take a look at Getaway Artist, as this Exotic can provide additional firepower. With it equipped, you can consume your grenade to create an Arc Soul and enter an Amplified state, and paired with the Arc subclass ability that also summons an Arc Soul, you can almost always have one of these mobile turrets available. This roll of Getaway Artist has great recovery and discipline stats, decent intellect, and a combo of low strength and resilience that you’ll want to consider buffing with mods.

  • Mobility: 10
  • Resilience: 3
  • Recovery: 23
  • Discipline: 15
  • Intellect: 10
  • Strength: 7
  • Total: 68

Exotic Weapons

Prometheus Lens (Exotic trace rifle)

Prometheus Lens
Prometheus Lens

A must-have trace rifle for anyone looking to burn their way through cannon fodder mobs, Prometheus Lens fires a beam of light that gradually applies scorch stacks to a target the longer the beam is focused on them. Kills with this weapon also return some of the ammo used to the magazine from reserves, making it a powerful tool for both regular enemies and bosses.

  • Prismatic Inferno
  • Chambered Compensator
  • Projection Fuse
  • Flame Refraction
  • Composite Stock

Hawkmoon (Exotic hand cannon)


This is another average roll of Hawkmoon, with Eye of the Storm being the key perk on this build. That makes the weapon more accurate and boosts handling the lower your health gets, making it viable for PvP. As a reminder, Dead Man’s Tale isn’t available in Xur’s inventory anymore and can be acquired through its dedicated Exotic mission that will be available again in two weeks.

  • Paracausal Shot
  • Full Bore
  • Alloy Magazine
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Textured Grip

Xur also offers the Xenology quest every week, which requires you to complete 21 Vanguard Ops 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 you’ll now 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.
