Xur is a Destiny 2 legendary merchant who appears during weekend plays to sell some of the most coveted armors and weapons in the game. Exchanging Legendary Shards for the items would give you a better edge on your gameplay.

But for casual gamers who are limited on shards, it is often hard to determine which of his items to purchase. So knowing which gears work better will give you a better fighting experience.

But first, consider that Xur only appears on Fridays at exactly 17:00 GMT or 10:00 Pacific. And players can catch him until Tuesday where his appearance goes on a reset.

One of the main problems every gamer encounters is catching him at which precise parts of the map and what specific items will he have on hand. So, for players with limited shards and wants to invest theirs on quality items, this guide will point out what where you can find him and what you need to acquire from him.

It is also important to note that Xur’s icon is no longer active since the release of the Forsaken expansion. Most players have a hard time tracking him down, but one point of comparison with the previous game releases is that he appears on the exact same spots.

For the Titan, EDZ, The Tower, and Nessur, Xur has always been frequenting the catwalk in the Hangar area. You would need to turn left from the doorway and take a few flights of stairs up to the edge of the Hangar area. There you would find Xur waiting for a good deal.

This week though, the legendary merchant will be standing idly on the Tower, near the Dead Orbit faction. He will be selling the SUROS regime riffle for 29 legendary shards and the Exotic Synthoceps gauntlet for 23 legendary shards. You can also expect the exotic Liar’s Handshake gauntlet and the Geomag Stabilizer leg armors for both 23 legendary shards.

Take note that each of these gears possesses different stats effects. Getting the Synthocepts, for instance, provides a +11 Resilience while the Liar’s Handshake only has +6. Both levers, though have a total score of 48, but with different status effects.

Knowing the stats’ effects of each gear will also have an impact on your character’s ability and combat agility. Investing in the right armor and weapon will not only give you better chances of winning combat but also give you better chances of survival. The key, though, is earning your Legendary Shards and knowing where to spot Xur for his gears.
