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 located near the Speaker 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. Make sure to check your postmaster this weekend for a Strange Coin gift from Bungie.

Xur's Inventory for the weekend includes:

  • No Backup Plans
  • Knucklehead Radar
  • Apotheosis Veil
  • Dragon's Breath
  • Legacy Engram: Heavy Weapon

Remember that the Legacy Engram will always turn into a year one exotic with year one light 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 "Twist Fate" option on exotic armor pieces.
