It’s everyone’s favorite time of the week, Xur Day! If you’re new to Destiny 2 and are wondering who Xur is and what he does in Destiny 2, Xur is an Exotic goods vendor who appears at a random location every week starting on Friday.
By visiting Xur, you can purchase Exotic armor pieces for your Titan, or Warlock, as well as an Exotic weapon. Before you can browse and purchase Exotics from Xur, you’ll need to overcome a few obstacles. Namely, finding Xur’s updated location.
Because Xur spawns at a random location every week, it can be a pain to cycle between all of his potential spawn areas in order to find him. To make things easier, we’ve put together a guide explaining where you can find Xur in Destiny 2, and all of the Exotic items he has available for purchase in Destiny 2 during the week of August 7, 2020!
Where to find Xur in Destiny 2 - August 7, 2020
On Friday, Xur appears at a random location in Destiny 2. Unlike other NPCs, Xur acts as the game’s friendly neighborhood Exotic goods vendor. Before you can purchase Exotic items from Xur, you’ll first need to find him.
Visiting all of the locations that Xur is known to spawn is one way to find him, but this can be a bit time-consuming, especially if you’re new to Destiny 2. To save time, you can look up Xur’s location online in guides like this one!
Note that if you search for Xur before his spawn time of 10:00 a.m. (PST), 1:00 p.m. (EST), and 6:00 p.m. (BST), you may miss Xur even if you’re at the correct location. We recommend waiting until the aforementioned time before you head out to meet with Xur.
Once Xur appears in Destiny 2, he’ll stay put in the same spot until Tuesday selling a random Exotic weapon along with Exotic armor pieces. If you want to buy something from Xur, you have until Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. (PST), 1:00 p.m. (EST), and 6:00 p.m. (BST) to do so.
After Tuesday, you’ll need to wait until the following Friday to buy Exotic items from Xur again. During the week of August 7, Xur can be found atop Calus’ Barge in the Watcher’s Grave area of Nessus.
To reach Xur, you’ll need to travel to the Watcher’s Grave area and then hop on your Sparrow and head north. It won’t take you too long to spot Calus’ Barge which looks like a large, floating ship. When you reach Calus’ Barge, head to the back and enter the ship.
Make your way to the very top level of Calus’ Barge to find Xur. If you’re someone who does better with a visual guide over a written guide, we’ve included a helpful video at the bottom of this article that’ll show you exactly where you need to go.

During the week of August 7 through August 11, you can visit Xur at the location outlined above. When you speak to Xur, you’ll be able to browse through his updated inventory of Exotic items.
If you find something you like, you can purchase one or more of these Exotic items using Legendary Shards. Xur’s inventory refreshes every week so if you don’t see anything worth buying, you can always hang on to your Legendary Shards and try again next week.
In addition to Exotic armor for Warlocks, Hunters, and Titans, you can purchase one Exotic weapon from Xur each week along with a Fated Engram. Wondering what Xur is selling this week and whether you should pay him a visit?
Below, we’ve put together a list of all Exotics sold by Xur from August 7 through August 11 in Destiny 2!
- Merciless (Exotic Fusion Rifle) - 29 Legendary Shards
- Gemini Jester (Exotic Hunter Leg Armor) - 23 Legendary Shards
- Peregrine Greaves (Exotic Titan Leg Armor) - 23 Legendary Shards
- Nezarec’s Sin (Exotic Warlock Helmet) - 23 Legendary Shards
- Exotic Engram - 97 Legendary Shards
During the week of August 7 through August 11 in Destiny 2, you can purchase a Merciless Exotic Fusion Rifle from Xur for a total of 29 Legendary Shards. Last week, Xur had a Telesto up for grabs which is undoubtedly a much better purchase than the Merciless.
It’s not the worst fusion rifle in Destiny 2, but it’s certainly not the best either. The highlights of Xur’s inventory this week include the Nezarec’s Sin for Warlocks and the Peregrine Greaves for Titans.
Both of these Exotic armor pieces have 60+ rolls and the Nezarec’s Sin in particular is a fantastic piece of gear to have. Overall, the most worthwhile item in Xur’s inventory this week is the Nezarec’s Sin.
If you’ve been hungering for leg armor for your Titan, the Peregrine Greaves aren’t a bad grab. If you already own everything in Xur’s inventory, you can hang on to your Legendary Shards and check back next week to see if he has something you don’t have.
Until then, we’re curious to hear your thoughts on Xur’s inventory this week. Are you planning to pick up a Nezarec’s Sin? Are you disappointed to get a Merciless one week after Xur was selling the Telesto? Let us know down in the comments below!
