Shellcode Fragments drop in the Vex Incursion Zone but this will only happen if you have obtained the weekly bounty from Nimbus that rewards a Polymorphic Shellcode.

You will need to use Strand abilities and weapons to make the Vex enemies drop Shellcode Fragments that are needed.

If you do not use Strand to defeat the Vex, you will not be able to obtain Shellcode Fragments in the Vex Incursion Zone even after obtaining the bounty.

This comes after you have completed Lightfall and have progressed through the mission given in the Hall of Heroes at Strider’s Gate.

After you have completed the Bluejay quest, you will be able to accept the weekly bounty from Nimbus after speaking to him at Strider’s Gate.

Why Shellcode Fragments Not Dropping?

If Shellcode Fragments are not dropping, this may be because you are not using Strand to deal damage to enemies.

You will need to get final blows while dealing Strand damage and if you are still not getting any, you should check the bounty.

It may be possible that you have already collected enough Shellcode Fragments and may now continue with the next objective or turn in the quest.
