Bungie Controlling Xur To Control Loot Is A “Conspiracy Theory”
Conspiracy theories are healthy, to a point.
The Destiny community, who have been grinding through hours and hours of missions to try and get their hands on the best loot, recently threw a bit of a temper tantrum on the Destiny sub-Reddit when the salesmen, Xur, appeared in the tower with the same stock of weapons as before.
While some gamers shrugged it off and went back to playing, others took to the internet to complain. Destiny’s community manager, Deej, took time out to respond to the gamers and their “conspiracy theories” that are “symptoms of a burning desire”.
He successfully shot down all the arguments of a greater plan that was put in play by Bungie, he did this by saying, “Xur is randomized. There are times when we can pull off miracles like making him stay in the Tower longer, but his inventory is governed by the same chaos that influences all the loot drops.”
He finished up by saying that he’s not “always in the loop when it comes to these things,” and that he’s going to talk to the people that drive Xur’s code and try to “make him more valuable to you in the future.”
