Where is Xur Location Today? August 26, 2022: Xur is the well-known shady vendor that makes his arrival every Friday somewhere around the Destiny World. Has anything changed in this Witch Queen Update? Let’s find out.
Xur’s locations are random, and he can show up at any of the three locations: Social-Hangar, Winding Cove on EDZ, and Tree on Watcher’s Grave at Nessus. Please note that this was changed after the arrival of Beyond Light DLC; the planets IO and Titan have been taken off the game. Initially, we expected Xur to arrive in new locations, but that didn’t happen. We probably need more locations to get sunset before Xur gets a new Friday home.
Note: With the arrival of Shadowkeep, Xur’s engram will also drop exotics such as Astrocyte Verse and Wavesplitter. Bungie confirmed that all year 2 exotics will drop from his engram. I opened the fated engram last week and got the Wavesplitter; the exotic is fantastic and works well in PvP.
Let’s find out where he is this week; continue reading to find out.
Xur’s Location – August 26, 2022 (Witch Queen)
Xur’s Location Today is Tower Hangar
This is how you can get to Xur on the Tower:
Note: Xur might not show up when you load into the above location. This is an issue that hasn’t been addressed by the devs yet. To fix this, just switch your character once and load it into Xur’s location again, and he will show up.
Xur’s Inventory This Week
Xur’s currently selling:
- Skyburner’s Oath
- Raiju’s Harness Hunter Exotic Chest
- Eternal Warrior Titan Exotic Helmet
- Aeon Soul Warlock Gauntlets
Xur’s Inventory last week:
- Crimson Hand Cannon
- Eternal Warrior Titan Exotic
- Gemini Jester Hunter Exotic
- Crown of Tempests Warlock Exotic
Once he arrives, we will add our thoughts on what you should spend your shards on. Please don’t blindly buy everything since the number of shards is limited. This, however, doesn’t apply to older players, they have plenty of shards.
What are Xur’s Usual Locations?
Xur is a weird guy who likes to switch his location weekly. His locations for this patch are Social-Hangar, Winding Cove on EDZ, and Tree on Watcher’s Grave at Nessus. Below you will find the details on how to get to these locations easily.
Social on Tower
Almost everyone might know about this location by now. You spawn directly on Tower and head towards the left to the Hangar. Take a left from the Hangar; there you will find a stairway. This is where you will be able to spot Xur. Below is the location marked on the map.
Winding Cove on EDZ
This is a tricky location to get to, spawn right into Winding Cove on EDZ and head straight towards the location marked on the map given below. You will find Xur standing above you on the edge of a cliff. The location will be easier to spot since players will be around him most of the time.
Tree on Watchers Grave, Nessus
Watcher’s Grave is a spawn point located on Nessus. This is another location that is hard to explain in words. You can watch this video. However, below is the image of the tree he’s standing on.
Who is Xur?
Xur is the agent of the nine; he is an exotic vendor that brings a Hunter, Titan, and Warlock exotic and a weapon every week. Whatever he brings is sold for legendary shards, which you can get easily by playing the game and recycling legendaries. Xur also has an exotic engram that guarantees an exotic that you don’t have; however, this one is not cheap (97 shards). Also, this engram can only be opened once per week on one character.
Do comment below on which exotic are you excited about.
This is yet another arrival of Xur this season; pretty excited to get the new exotics. Are you excited?
