"I have a clear purpose. I cannot explain it. Forgive me."
—Xûr

Xûr, Agent of the Nine[1] is a vendor who sells extremely rare goods in exchange for Strange Coins and only appears on weekends from Friday to Sunday.[2][1] In Destiny, Xûr appears randomly at one of six locations in the Tower or one location in the Vestian Outpost. In Destiny 2, Xûr appears randomly at one of the four Public Sectors.

Biography[edit]

Xur's coming and going depends on the planetary alignments, as he hails from the Jovians, a part of the system that the Guardians have yet to adequately explore. He is in service to the Nine, enigmatic rulers of the Jovians, the section of the Solar System past the asteroid belt.

It is possible that Xûr, along with the rest of The Nine, are responsible for releasing Skolas from his prison after he was given to them.[3]

Every week, the available stock is chosen at random, but occasionally he will sell one item more than once every few weeks.

  • Exotic Armor (one for each class) - 13 Strange Coins
  • Exotic Weapon - 23 Strange Coins (Primaries) or seventeen Strange Coins (Specials/Heavies)
  • Exotic Shard - 7 Strange Coins

If the player is working on an Exotic Weapon Bounty or Quest, they may need to purchase a specific item from Xûr for one Strange Coin. Such items include:

Year Two Inventory[edit]

Every week, the available stock is chosen at random. Note that Xûr will not sell both an Exotic weapon and a Legacy Engram during the same visit, only one or the other.

Every week, the available stock is chosen at random, but some items may accidentally be featured more than once within a certain timespan. Note that Xûr will not sell both an Exotic weapon and a Legacy Engram during the same visit, only one or the other.

Trivia[edit]

  • Xur has sold the famous exotic Rocket Launcher Gjallarhorn on two occasions in Year 1 of Destiny. The first was during the second week he was available to purchase from, however many people didn't buy it due to either lack of knowledge or they didn't have enough Strange Coins with which to purchase it.
  • There was once a bug in Xur's code that meant he didn't sell Three of Coins for a few weeks during Rise of Iron.
  • There is a conspiracy that Xur's presence in the Tower may not be beneficial despite him outfitting Guardians with exotic wares. Some people believe that Xur is in the Tower to gather intelligence and that his superiors may be using him for recon.
