Destiny's Xur is Selling a Gjallarhorn This week

This week the Agent of Nine is holding the Guardians’ most sought after item in his grasp.

7

If you’ve been scouring raids, and Nightfalls, and PVP hoping beyond all hope for the ‘best weapon’ in Destiny to drop, wait no more. Xur, the Agent of Nine, who shows up every week within the Tower or Reef, is carrying such a weapon. The Gjallarhorn. A massive rocket launcher, which has been deemed by many players to be the greatest weapon in all of Destiny, the Gjallarhorn is just 17 Strange Coins away from sitting in your inventory.

First you’re going to need Strange Coins. You can earn these little trinkets by playing through Strike Playlists and hoping, as well as by completing the Weekly Heroic Strike on as many characters as you have at Level 32.

Where to find Xur: Head into the Tower, and make a right, heading through the connecting area that leads to the Shipwright and Dead Orbit vendors. Now continue down the steps in the far back and into the pub on the lowest level of the Tower. Here you’ll find Xur holed up in the back corner, presumably waiting for a drink.

Other items for sell this week include: An Insurmountable Skullfort, Achlyophage Symbiote, Light Beyond Nemesis, and Exotic Glove Engrams which can each be bought for Strange Coins or Motes of Light.

        It will still be a good rocket launcher. Won't be as good, but still.

          Well I figure it will work good in standardized crucible matches... But with 2.0 green gear doing better damage than current 34 raid gear, it's going to be like the Burning Crusade effect.

            From what we've been led to believe, Exotics will still be able to level up to the next damage marker. So it should just be a matter of upgrading.

              Yeah. It's a 'pretty big deal' to Destiny players.

              Made me laugh when I checked it this morning. The raining Gjallarhorn in the banner and the mouse over icon are great.

      I mean this really only impacts pve in a huge way, as now fireteams can just wreck bosses. I never found ghorn to be a huge problem in pvp

        Yeah absolutely. Having Gjallarhorn be so prolific might make Bungie design interesting bosses versus bullet sponge snooze fests.
