If you're playing Destiny, you're probably familiar with Xur, the weekly exotic-item merchant who arrives in the tower on Friday at 5 a.m. ET and departs on Sunday at 5 a.m. ET. If you're a casual player, it can be hard to know where your hard-earned Strange Coins are best spent.

Watch the above video for a quick review of Xur's inventory this week. Xur is in near the Vanguard vendors in The Tower this weekend. The weekly heroic strike is gone, so there is no longer a guaranteed consistent source of coins, but coins are now much more common from strikes and Crucible matches. Level 28 Prison of Elders is also still a reliable source of coins.

Xur's Inventory for the weekend includes:

  • Legacy Weapon Engram: Heavy Weapon
  • No Backup Plans
  • Don't Touch Me
  • The Stag
  • Hereafter

Remember that the Legacy Weapon Engram will always turn into a year one exotic with year one damage values — check out our story on the exotic game in Year Two for more details. And while you're here, check out the video below for an overview on how to use the new "Twist Fate" option on exotic armor pieces.
