Where is Xur Today? Destiny 2 Xur Location TODAY following Festival of the Lost News (Pic: BUNGIE)
Where is Xur today? That's the question all Destiny 2 Guardians will be asking today, but over on the Bungie blog there's a LOT of new information to unpack.
The new blog post covers a lot, but none more so than the upcoming Festival of the Lost event coming to the game next week. But there's much more, including news of the return for Iron Banner and the inbound Destiny 2.0.4 update
As we say, there's a lot of info to digest but those looking to know more should really take a good hard look at the This Week At Bungie blog post.
But right now, we must turn our attention back to Xur and hope that the Agent of the Nine returns with some amazing new exotic stock to spend our Legendary Shards on, but only between October 12th – October 16th.
If you're looking for the mysterious tentacle-faced merchant this week, you won't find him just yet, so don't bother checking the Destiny Reddit page for info.
Following the changes to the game some months back it now means that the Agent of Nine will now arrive at 10am PST, 1pm EST, 6pm BST, 7pm CET.
When Xur does appear, it'll be even harder to find him, due to some updates to the game following the launch of Destiny 2 Forsaken.
- Xur will no longer display a vendor icon on destination maps
- Xur will no longer be tied to Flashpoints
- Xurs Fated Engrams will grant only pre-Forsaken Exotics
All this being said, it looks like Xur is still spawning in the exact same areas on Titan, Io, Nessus and the European Dead Zone.
So it's not too difficult. Equally, he appears to still be spawning in the Tower when the flashpoint is on Mercury or Mars.
Stick with us as we reveal where Xur can be found this week and what he's selling. In the meantime, you can recap what Xur was selling last week, just below
What was Xur selling last week? October 5 – 9
Last week Xur was selling the following stock, which Guardians could buy using their Legendary Shards:
• Sweet Business – Kinetic Auto Rifle – 29 Legendary Shards
• Aeon Swift – Hunter Gauntlets – 23 Legendary Shards
• Hallowfire Heart – Titan Chest Armor – 23 Legendary Shards
• Winter's Guile- Warlock Gauntlets – 23 Legendary Shards
• Five of Swords (Nightfall Challenge Card)
• Fated Engram
Do note, Xur stopped selling these items earlier this week on Tuesday when the Destiny 2 Reset removed Xur from the game.
Xur Changes since Update 188.8.131.52
Xur has some new items to sell each week which were introduced with the games 184.108.40.206 update:

HOW TO ACQUIRE LEGENDARY SHARDS IN DESTINY 2?
Legendary Shards have replaced the Strange Coins as Xur's currency of choice, but should you still be finding your feet within the game, then below you'll find a list of every which way you can obtain Legendary Shards in the game:
• Dismantling Legendary weapons and armour (x 2)
• Dismantling Exotic weapons and armour (x 10)
• Strike bosses (rare)
• Weekly Nightfalls
• Planetary chests (rare)
• Lost Sector chests
• Raid chests
• Raid encounters
If you haven't acquired enough Legendary Shards just yet to buy Xur's stock, then make sure to farm them quick because Xur and his exotic stock won't be around for long.
You'll want to make sure you acquire enough Legendary Shards before the mysterious vendor skips town, which now takes place every Tuesday at 6PM.
