The swag chaffeur, Xûr, is now live in Destiny 2 for the weekend until next week’s reset. If you’re looking to get your some shiny new Exotic armor or weapons for your Guardian, look no further.

Each week, Xûr has a random assortment of Exotic armor, one for each Guardian class, as well as a random Exotic Weapon and an Exotic Engram available for purchase. In addition to his Exotic wares, he’s got a random collection of Legendary weapons and armor to deck out your Guardians.

We’ve rounded up all the info on Xûr for the week including where to find Xûr, which Exotic weapons and armor are available, as well as which Legendary weapons you should pick up, either for PvE or PvP.

Where Is Xûr Today?

Xûr’s location can be found at Winding Cove in the EDZ on September 2 through September 6. To reach him, travel to the landing point at Winding Cove. When you arrive, make for the rock cliffs at the far end of the cove and look for a cave winding up to a platform next to some Fallen. There you’ll find the freakish salesman we all adore.

Xûr can be found atop a rocky cliff in the Winding Cove in the EDZ.

Some decent exotics this week, but sadly all of their rolls are pretty subpar, which means you likely will want to wait to make your purchases unless your need is urgent.

Exotic Weapons

Each week Xûr sells Hawkmoon & Dead Man's Tale.

Hawkmoon – Exotic Hand Cannon

Hawkmoon and Dead Man’s Tale are both great weapons generally speaking, but neither rolls is terribly inspiring today so pass on buying them unless you don’t own these GOATed shooty friends yet.

The best Titans have got this week are their gauntlets which are fairly mid in this Guardian’s eyes. May want to skip out this week, my fellow Titans!

Similar to Titans, Hunters only have one mid tier piece of armor in the helmet, though luckily those are at least quite spikey where Resilience is concerned. Still, my recommendation for buying those is tepid at best.

That’s a wrap on Xûr for this week, Guardians! What do you think of the changes coming to PvP regarding skill-based matchmaking? Let us know in the comments!
