Bad news for the data miners amongst us
For a while now, we’ve been bringing you news that corresponds to the popular first person shooter, Destiny. A feature of this game, as you’re probably aware, is the acquisition of loot by grinding away hours of gameplay. But if you don’t have a lot of time to sink into the game, you have Xur.
Xur is a salesman who makes visits to the Tower in Destiny, on his visits he brings rare and hard to obtain pieces of equipment including weapons and armours from all aspects of the game. For some time, the stock of Xur has been known about ahead of time because of Data mining, lending players a little bit of an edge in the game.
Now a small hotfix is live in the game which didn’t add any features, instead if tweaked Xur. One Data miner said, “Instead of Xur having one single constant IP on one port, he now has multiple.” This makes locating and mining the relevant information quite a bit more tricky, but with Xur’s stock becoming illusive, the information for Nightfalls and Weekly’s is thought to still be available.
Of course, take this information with grain of salt since this isn’t coming from official sources. But given that the popular Destiny data miner Megamanexe4 has been leaking Xur’s inventory every week, we will know soon enough whether Bungie have indeed set Xur on multiple IPs. We will keep you updated.
