The weekend is here in Destiny 2, and if you’re looking to settle in for the night by chasing Pinnacle engrams and a few rounds of Iron Banner action, then it’s time to pay a visit to Xur to stock up on the essentials. As usual, the roving arms dealer will have various Exotic weapons and armor pieces to sell, as well as Legendary-class gear to help you fill out your collection. Here’s where you can find Xur this weekend and what the Agent of the Nine has for sale.
This week you can find Xur on Nessus, in the Watcher’s Grave area. For his weapon, Xur is offering The Queenbreaker. Hunters can pick up Shinobu’s Vow gauntlets; Titans can grab Actium War Rig chest armor; and for Warlocks, Xur has the Verity’s Brow helmet.
Head to Nessus and use the Watcher’s Grave transmat zone to find Xur this week. When you arrive, hop on your sparrow and head north toward the exit of the area. Look for a big tree with pink moss on the right side of the area. Climb up onto its big, flat branch, where you can reach Xur.

Xur is present every weekend in Destiny 2, starting with the daily reset at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET each Friday. His exact location is always a mystery when he first arrives, as he is not listed on the map, and for novice players, he can be easy to miss. However, there are a set number of locations where he takes up residence, including the Tower Hangar area, on Nessus in Watcher’s Grave, and in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ.
Linear fusion rifles aren’t in hot demand right now thanks to them being nerfed last year, but The Queensbreaker is still a great weapon that’s superb at long ranges. While there are better Exotics that work well with Arc-focused builds–like the excellent Thunderlord–this weapon can still come in handy for team activities if you’re playing support. The Wire Rifle perk allows for a precision Arc bolt to blind enemies when they’re struck by it, plus it’ll chain to any of their minions around them. That makes Queenbreaker worth using if you’re planning to do some crowd control while keeping your allies from being pinned down by a boss.
- Marksman Sights
- Enhanced Battery
- Hip-Fire Grip
- Fitted Stock
Dead Man’s Tale
There’s nothing extraordinary about Dead Man’s Tale this week, but the perks on offer do allow for a reliable scout rifle build. Moving Target is the key perk this week, which allows for increased movement speed and target acquisition while you aim down the sights, and Light Mag, Full Bore, and Hand-Laid Stock will keep the weapon stable and ready for a slightly quicker reload.
- Full Bore
- Light Mag
- Moving Target
- Hand-Laid Stock
Hawkmoon has rarely deviated from a predictable roll of perks each week, and this one is no different. Alloy Magazine, Arrowhead Brake, and Heavy Grip make their usual appearances, with the signature perk this week being Rangefinder. That increases the effective range and zoom magnification of Hawkmoon, and when combined with the other traits of this weapon, makes it fairly desirable for PvP.
- Arrowhead Brake
- Alloy Magazine
- Heavy Grip

Shinobu’s Vow is a reliable Exotic for any Hunter looking to specialize in skip grenades, as these gauntlets give you an extra grenade charge, make the explosive more effective, and even return energy when they damage enemies. The big draw here is a nice spread of stats, with recovery, discipline, and strength all having high numbers. There’s even a very high resilience stat with the Exotic, leaving you plenty of space to buff up the smaller mobility or intellect numbers.
- Mobility: 3
- Resilience: 19
- Recovery: 10
- Discipline: 14
- Intellect: 2
- Strength: 13
- Total: 61
Actium War Rig
This Titan Exotic has always worked really well with the Sweet Business Exotic, but you can also use it for some of the other terrific auto rifles and machine guns in Destiny 2. It’ll steadily reload those weapons, saving you time and giving you more firepower to take on enemies, plus you’ll get increased airborne effectiveness stats for those weapon archetypes. This roll of Actium War Rig has a poor resilience stat, so you’ll want to use an armor mod to address that gap in the armor defense, but it does have very good recovery, discipline, and strength stats.
- Mobility: 13
- Resilience: 3
- Recovery: 17
- Discipline: 18
- Intellect: 2
- Strength: 13
- Total: 66
For the Warlock who wants to provide some explosive support to their fireteam, Verity’s Brow is terrific. While it requires some work to get a Death Throes buff from it, once that ability is activated and you’ve thrown a grenade, nearby allies will gain greatly increased grenade energy regeneration for a few seconds. That makes this handy for taking down bosses, and the overall spread of stats on this piece are nicely balanced.
- Mobility: 12
- Resilience: 8
- Recovery: 11
- Discipline: 6
- Intellect: 19
- Strength: 8
- Total: 64
