It’s the start of a new weekend in Destiny land and that means that the Agent of the Nine, Xur, has returned with new wares. We’ve full details on both where to find Xur and what the hooded salesman has to offer to Destiny players this week.
Last week, Xur’s selection was rather disappointing, as several of his Exotic items were repeats from past sales. After selling a primary weapon the week prior and a heavy the week before that, many had hoped Xur might offer a special weapon but that was not the case.
This week, however, Xur does have an Exotic sniper rifle available, which should make players happy. Unfortunately, some of the other items are repeats from past weeks. As we surmised last weekend, it might just be that Xur has a limited stock and Bungie is rotating through them as best they can.
As far as Xur’s location, the Agent of Nine can be found in Tower North in the far corner past the Speaker’s residence. He should be pretty easy to spot against the bright Earth skyline.
Here is the full list of Xur’s Exotic armor and weapons, as well as their prices:
- Helm of Inmost Light (Titan Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Lucky Raspberry (Hunter Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Voidfang Vestments (Warlock Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Ice Breaker (Sniper Rifle) – 17 Strange Coins
- Exotic Helmet Engram – 23 Motes of Light
At this point, Exotic items may have lost their luster in the world of Destiny as most players already have likely accumulated several armor and weapon options. However, with the Iron Banner still in full effect, these latest Exotics might prove more useful than others in the competitive multiplayer experience. Moreover, it doesn’t hurt to have several exotic weapons on hand for Vault of Glass runs, especially for those players who plan to try their hand at the Raid with 3 players.
It’s also worth pointing out that Xur does not appear throughout the entire weekend but actually disappears in the early hours of Sunday morning. Exact hours seem to differ depending on the player, but the past two weekends he has been gone by the server reset at 5am EST. That means Destiny players have about 48 hours from now to accumulate the requisite amount of Strange Coins (either through the Crucible or Strikes).
Do any of Xur’s items interest you this week? What are you hoping it might offer in a future sale?
