He who is more rat than human and more jackal than rat, Xûr, is now live in Destiny 2 for the weekend until next week’s reset. If you’re looking for some shiny new Exotic armor or weapons for your Guardian, look no further.

Each week, Xûr will have a random assortment of exotic armor, one for each Guardian class, as well as a random exotic weapon and engram available for purchase. In addition to his exotic wares, he has a random collection of legendary weapons and armor to equip your Guardians.

We’ve rounded up all the info on Xûr for this week, including where to find Xûr, what exotic weapons and armor are available, and which Legendary weapons to pick up, whether for PvE or PvP.

Where is Xûr this weekend?

The current location of Xûr can be found at The tomb of the watchman On Nessus On 23 December through December 27. To reach him, travel to the landing point at Watcher’s Grave. When you arrive, go straight to the red moss covered tree. Climb up the roots and you’ll find Xûr waiting at the top to sell you exotic items and legendary weapons.

Xûr can be found atop the trees in Watcher's Grave on Nessus.
