Destiny 2 fans will celebrate the new year 2021 with the arrival of their fan-favourite vendor, Xur. Xur regularly appears every Friday and today — the first day of 2021 — happens to be Friday. Like always, players can exchange various exotic items with the agent of Nine in exchange of Legendary Shards. So, if you have limited Legendary Shards, make sure to collect them before you pay Xur a visit.
Where is Xur Today?
Table of Contents
Xur shows up at any place within the game’s four worlds. However, he will not repeat the location of last week. Last week, we saw Xur hanging out near the Tower Hangar just behind the Dead Orbit. Xur never repeats the location but shows up at the same location after a few weeks. The Winding Cove in EDZ and Dead Orbit in the Tower are the most common places you can expect Xur. Xur has just appeared near the Nessus at Watchers Grave. He will remain there till the next weekly reset on Tuesday, January 5.
What items has he brought today?
The list of items includes weapons, gauntlets, armours, helmets, and consumables. Mostly players visit him so that they can get themselves an exotic weapon. Even though these items are easily available if you regularly play the game, players still choose to visit him and exchange items with Legendary Shards. Some items are random drop and can be obtained after completing missions. He previously brought a sniper rifle, two helmets, and an armour. The items that he brought today are:
Merciless — Exotic Fusion Rifle
The Bombardiers — Exotic Hunter Leg Armor
One-Eyed Mask — Exotic Titan Helmet
Astrocyte Verse — Exotic Warlock Helmet
The in-game currency, also called Legendary Shards are the remnants of powerful items. Xur previously didn’t exchange the exotic items with Legendary Shards. Bungie, the video game developer changed the currency in Destiny 2 replacing the Special Coins. If you don’t have Legendary Shards, you can get by dismantling various gears. After dismantling such powerful gears, you would get purple crystals, which are called Legendary Shards.
