Xur's Location Guide & Exotic Items in Destiny 2 (July 14-18)

Xur’s Back! Time to Stock Up on Exotic Goodies!

Greetings, Guardians! It’s the weekend, and you know what that means – it’s time to pay a visit to the one and only Xur, the Agent of the Nine. This mysterious arms dealer has once again graced us with his presence, bringing along a fresh batch of exotic gear and legendary-class items that will make your enemies tremble in fear. So put those plans for Solstice on hold, grab your legendary shards, and let’s dive into what Xur has in store for us this week!

Xur’s Secret Hideout in the EDZ

Xur in the EDZ

If you’re wondering where to find Xur, this week he’s hanging out in the EDZ, specifically in the Winding Cove area. To reach him, spawn in at the Winding Cove transmat zone, hop on your sparrow, and head north. Look for a cave near the bend in the road, and follow the tunnel through the cliff face until you reach a higher ridge where a Fallen dropship has crashed. And there he is, waiting to show you his wares!

Exotic Gear Galore!

Let’s dive into the good stuff – the exotic gear that Xur has brought for us this week. Here’s what he’s got:

  • Vigilance Wing (Exotic Pulse Rifle) – 29 Legendary Shards
  • An Insurmountable Skullfort (Exotic Titan Helmet) – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Fr0st-EE5 (Exotic Hunter Leg Armor) – 23 Legendary Shards
  • Crown of Tempests (Exotic Warlock Helmet) – 23 Legendary Shards

But that’s not all! Xur also has a few other exotic surprises up his sleeve. You can grab an Exotic Engram for 97 Legendary Shards, and if you’re feeling adventurous, take on the Xenology quest for a chance to earn an Exotic Cipher. These powerful items can be used to get your hands on the Exotics you’ve been longing for.

Exotic Weapons Worth Checking Out

Xur has a few exquisite weapons that deserve your attention. Here are some standout choices:

Vigilance Wing (Exotic Pulse Rifle)

Vigilance Wing

If you’re looking for a pulse rifle that packs a punch, Vigilance Wing is the way to go. This beauty not only offers an ultra-smooth five-round burst but also rewards you with increased health regeneration and movement speed when a nearby ally falls in battle. Perfect for PvP battles, this pulse rifle will have your enemies running for cover.

Hawkmoon (Exotic Hand Cannon)


Hawkmoon is a hand cannon with a roll that’s worth considering. The Surplus perk grants increased handling, reload speed, and stability for each fully charged ability. While not the most synergistic set of perks, it’s still a solid choice for those who haven’t found their perfect hand cannon yet.

Dead Man’s Tale (Exotic Scout Rifle)

Dead Man's Tale

For those Guardians who prefer scout rifles, Dead Man’s Tale is a decent option for PvE activities. With the Fourth Time’s the Charm perk, you’ll get two rounds back in the magazine after landing multiple precision hits. While Vorpal Weapon might be a more sought-after perk with this weapon, it’s still a solid choice for those who want a reliable scout rifle.
