The Season of the Splicer is now in full swing, and with plenty of changes being planned for the coming months, Guardians will want the best weapons and loot.
This will mean answering where Xur is this week, because the Agent of the Nine could have the perfect item to take on the latest Raids and events.
Xur will be returning as part of the normal Destiny 2 rotation, with the Trials of Osiris offering another adventure for those wanting a new Adept weapon or piece of armour.
But while the Trials require Guardians to put together a series of wins to unlock the best loot, Guardians can use Legendary Shards with Xur.
As usual, gamers will have to wait until the late morning in North America and evening time in the UK to find the Agent of the Nine.
And even then, gamers will have to sweep the various Destiny locations and maps to find out where Xur is.
Recent weeks have seen him hanging out in the Hangar an awful lot, and with a big Raid launching, this could be a nice easy place for Bungie to locate him.
This is where Xur was last week, and this location might have been chosen to make it easier for gamers to find him before the Vault of Glass started.
This means that this week’s Xur location could be somewhere a lot more exotic and harder to find.
As mentioned above, the return of Xur will allow gamers to trade Legendary Shards for exotics, but only for a short period.
The Destiny 2 Xur location from May 28 until June 1 will be revealed at 6pm BST, and it won’t take long for Guardians to start hunting the Agent of the Nine down.
All the items will be available until the weekly reset is completed and all rituals are wiped.
Last week, Xur was selling the Monte Carlo Primary Auto Rifle for 29 Legendary Shards, the Astrocyte Verse for 23 Legendary Shards, the Gemini Jester for 23 Legendary Shards, and Dunemarchers for 23 Legendary Shards.
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.
No notable changes have been made to how Xur is found or what can be found in his collection.
Recently, Bungie did make one change, including when Xur’s inventory includes an Exotic armor piece with a perk effect that depends on the use of a particular ability, that armor should more reliably come with a higher stat value in the stat that governs the cooldown of that ability.
