Destiny 2 Patch Fixes Xur's Broken Armor Sets

The Agent of the Nine won't be selling underpowered armor sets from this week in Destiny 2.


Bungie has released a new patch for Destiny 2 that prioritizes fixing the inventory of Exotic arms dealer Xur. The Agent of the Nine's weekly arsenal had been bugged for a while, as Xur's armor offerings had incredibly low total stats that made them not worth spending Legendary Shards on unless you wanted to complete your collection.

The new patch fixes this issue, while also introducing a new bug to Xur. This one is minor though, as Bungie is investigating an issue where the advertised stats on Xur’s inventory screen are slightly different to the item that you'll receive.
