Where is Xur this week, and what is he selling in Destiny 2?
On January 7, Guardians will reveal where Xur is this week, as well as what big exotic rewards Guardians can unlock this weekend.
Before the weekend begins, Xur will be back in Destiny and available to visit on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Other events, such as the return of Trials of Osiris, will begin on January 7, with Xur proving to be one of the most popular characters among Guardians.
A large number of Guardians tracking down the Agent of the Nine could result from random rolls and several high-ticket exotic items.
Both activities provide rewards and unlock new weapons and armour in the main game; however, while Trials requires three wins in a row, Xur only requires Glimmer and Legendary Shards.
At around 5 p.m. GMT, Xur is expected to return to the game with a new set of exotic weapons and Legendary armour.
It’s also worth noting that the Destiny support team will not reveal his final location, leaving Guardians to track down all of his usual haunts.
Within minutes of his return, he will provide a full report on what new exotics are available for purchase.
For those unfamiliar with Destiny, Xur’s Legendary Shards are the remains of powerful items that can be used to improve gear or traded for other items.
It’s also worth noting that Xur will drop items with similar levels of power to yours.
Another feature of Xur that has been added to the latest version of Destiny 2 is that he now offers free Cipher Quests.
The Quest will award you with an exotic Cipher if you complete 21 Strikes or win the same number of Crucible or Gambit matches as you did last week.
Guardians can obtain one Exotic Engram per week using Legendary Shards, which decrypts as Exotics not already in your collection.
Last week, Xur offered the following Exotic rewards to Guardians who had the appropriate number of Legendary Shards:
For 29 Legendary Shards, you can get the Vigilance Wing Primary Pulse Rifle.
Hunter Leg Armor, St0mp-EE5, for 23 Legendary Shards.
Titan Chest Armor with the Heart of Inmost Light for 23 Legendary Shards.
Warlock Gauntlets of the Sunbracers for 23 Legendary Shards
And expectations are high that Bungie will begin releasing top weapons via Xur so that everyone can prepare.
