Xur, the strange Exotic item seller and Agent of the Nine, is here again in Destiny 2. Xur brings with him an unpredictable roster of Exotics, as well as a suite of older legendary armor and weapons that can help fill your collection if you are missing them.
Appearing in the game weekly from Friday until reset, the merchant hangs out in random locations around the world of Destiny 2 — including inside the Tower.
Here is where to find Xur in Destiny 2, and what he is selling.

What is worth buying from Xur this week?
Here’s some more specific advice on Xur’s wares this week, March 17 to 21:
LORD OF WOLVES
Lord of Wolves is a Forsaken shotgun. Its Exotic perk is Shrapnel Launcher, which causes the weapon to fire a burst of flaming shrapnel in a line. Its secondary perk is Release the Wolves. Holding the reload button activates an alternate fire mode for Lord of Wolves that fires double the ammunition with every trigger pull and deals bonus damage.
Lord of Wolves is a great shotgun in both PvE and PvP. A few years ago, it was so powerful that Bungie awarded an emblem to players who had to deal with it in PvP. Bungie has since nerfed the gun, but it’s still an interesting weapon to use in multiplayer or PvE.
The Hunter Exotic this week is Lucky Raspberry. The main perk here is Probability Matrix, which enhances your Arc Bolt grenade, giving it a chance to reset after dealing damage and causing it to chain more effectively. The cooldown is also reset on a full chain. This chest piece is pretty mediocre compared to other Hunter Exotics — although some players love it.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 68 total stats.
CREST OF ALPHA LUPI
The Crest of Alpha Lupi is an awesome Titan chest piece. Its exotic perk, Survival Well, causes Supers to generate more orbs of light. Barricade will start health regeneration for nearby allies when deployed, too. This is great for some PvE content and extremely powerful in competitive PvP. Don’t miss this chest piece.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 64 total stats.
Geomag Stabilizers are new Exotic boots from Destiny 2: Forsaken. Their Exotic perk is Close Enough, which causes Chaos Reach to last longer while you’re dealing damage with it. This is a fantastic Warlock Exotic. If you don’t have them yet, make sure to pick these up.
Xur’s roll this week comes with 67 total stats.
Exotic Cipher quest
Starting in Beyond Light, Xur has a new quest for an Exotic Cipher. The Exotic Cipher lets you buy old Exotics from the Monuments to Lost Light kiosk in the Tower. You’ll need these items and some other currencies to pick up Exotics like Heir Apparent and Truth.
This week, Xur wants you to complete 21 Strikes or win Crucible or Gambit matches. By finishing the quest, you’ll earn an Exotic Cipher to use however you want.
