Here’s what Xur is selling this weekend in Destiny

When it comes to loot in Destiny the most sought after items are the exotic ones. Which, of course, are the most difficult to come by. Since I’ve owned the game I’ve come across just one exotic bounty, and it’s for a handcannon…which I never use. No doubt the easiest way to acquire exotic items is to save up those strange coins that you might still be trying to figure out the significance of, because they are the preferred currency of Xur, Agent of the Nine. 

Xur is…well I’m not really sure what Xur is. Or who the “Nine” are. The only semblance of any kind of exposition of…anything…in this game has come from reading random Destiny wikis on my phone during bowel movements. He’s like a less interesting version of the merchant from Resident Evil 4. What I do know about Xur is that he sells exotic items, making him the easiest way to access these exclusive units of video game d**k measuring. Xur only appears at the Tower on the weekends (FridaySunday) and will sell exotic armor for 13 strange coins, and usually one weapon for 23 strange coins, as well as an exotic engram for 23 motes of light. He also sells supply and ammo drops, but who spends strange coins on those?
