Xur, Destiny’s shady black market dealer, sells powerful exotic weapon and armor every weekend. This week though he has what is widely considered to be one of the most powerful and useful weapons in the game, Ice Breaker. The Ice Breaker is one of the most powerful sniper rifles, boasting 331 attack, solar damage and the ability to explode enemies upon killing them. The icing on the cake however is its ability to regenerate ammo. Meaning tough encounters where you have to stay away from the fray (such as nightfall strikes), there’s no need to risk going out into gunfire to pick up ammo or waste ammo packs. Very helpful indeed.
This weekend, Xur is hanging out near the crucible quartermaster. Besides the Ice Breaker, he is offering up a helmet (the Glasshouse) for Titans, a helmet (Achlyophage Symbiote) for Hunters and a helmet (Obsidian mind) for Warlocks. The Glasshouse extends the weapons and blessing of light ability for Titans. The Achlyophage Symbiote gives Gunslingers an extra shot of their Golden Gun. While the Obsidian Mind is a powerful helmet for Voidwalker Warlocks that enjoy using their special Nova Bomb ability.
If you’re looking for strange coins, they can commonly be found by completing the weekly heroic and nightfall strikes along with completing a daily public event and turning in blue engrams.Also, Xur has a multitude of exotic weapon and armor upgrades that can be purchased for one exotic shard and around 7500 glimmer provided you have the original non-upgraded version.
