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 Tower North, on the balcony near the speaker this week. If you're short on coins, the Weekly Heroic strike at level 32 will earn you nine, and then your best bet for additional coins is to run the strike playlist for blue engrams.

Update: Bungie has acknowledged that Xur not bringing a weapon is a bug and is investigating the problem:
We are aware of issues with Xur's inventory. We are currently investigating. Standby for updates.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) July 17, 2015
Well, then. Xur appears to be non-compliant this morning. @BungieHelp is having a chat with him and will provide status updates.— Bungie (@Bungie) July 17, 2015
Update 2: Welp.
We've determined we can't safely alter Xur at this time. He'll be back next week with a full inventory, including an Exotic weapon.— Bungie (@Bungie) July 17, 2015
