Xur is coming back to Destiny 2 today, with his precise location set to be revealed this evening for Guardians on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
A new range of exotics will be coming to the game that can be traded for Legendary Shards, although we won’t know what will be included until later.
The Destiny 2 Xur location from May 7 until May 11 will be revealed at 6pm BST, and it won’t take long for Guardians to start hunting the Agent of the Nine down.
Xur will be sticking around until Tuesday, when the Weekly Reset is completed and all rituals are wiped.
This will be when the current Season will end and the Season of the Splicer will begin across all platforms.
Last week, Xur was easy to find, hanging out in The Tower behind Dead Orbit, offering up the likes of the Arbalest Kinetic linear fusion rifle, the Graviton Forfeit, the Astrocyte Verse, and Mk. 44 Stand Asides.
For anyone who has forgotten, Legendary Shards used by Xur items are remnants of powerful items that are used to improve gear or trade for other items.
It should also be noted that Xur will be dropping items that are similar in power level to your character.
And another part of Xur that is new to the latest version of Destiny 2 is that he now drops Cipher Quests for free.
The Quest will reward you with an exotic Cipher, and last weeks included completing 21 Strikes, or winning the same number of Crucible or Gambit matches.
Every week, Guardians can acquire one Exotic Engram using Legendary Shards that will decrypt as Exotics that aren’t already in your collection.
There should be around six items included in Xur’s store, although some of them might not be available to buy.
Xur is expected back in the game around the same time the Trials of Osiris returns on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Trials is a Crucible event that rewards fireteams that can string together wins, with at least one Adept weapon included, which are usually only made available for those who can score Flawless run.
And when Xur disappears and the Trials of Osiris event ends, Bungie will be launching Season 14 of Destiny 2.
Plenty of new rewards are being planned for May, with Bungie telling fans this week:
“For the endgame focused Guardians out there, three familiar weapons will be up for grabs. We have no doubt the Destiny 1 veterans among you will recall these legends in an instant.
“Like last Season, each weapon will be on a weekly rotation in Nightfall playlists. Upping the difficulty will give you a higher drop chance as you search for desired rolls. Starting June 22, Grandmaster Nightfalls will become available, introducing Adept versions of each weapon.
“Now, here’s the part where we say, “and more.” There are still more weapons left for you to discover as you play.
“Some of the best feelings in Destiny are those moments where you uncover a sweet weapon with the perfect perk combination.
“Want an Auto Rifle that gains extra damage after defeating an enemy with a grenade? How about a Sniper that’s quick on the draw, but can also be rolled with Dragonfly? Every Season invites interesting choices and new playstyles.”
