The mysterious vendor Xur, Agent of the Nine, returned to the Destiny servers on Friday morning, kicking off the latest in a series of weekly equipment sales that began shortly after Destiny ’s September 2014 debut.
The weekly sale is something of a weekly highlight for Destiny players, many of whom are still anxiously awaiting next month’s release of Destiny: Rise Of Iron , the fourth (and perhaps final) expansion being prepared for Bungie’s shared-world shooter during while fans wait patiently for an oft-rumored sequel. The Agent of the Nine’s weekly appearance isn’t quite as invigorating as it once was, as players’ armories continue to expand over time. That said, recently announced changes to Bungie’s ongoing support for Destiny have put something of a premium on the vendor’s recent appearances.
Last month, Bungie announced major changes to the way it would provide ongoing support for those still playing Destiny on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Included among those changes was confirmation that PS3/360 owners will soon lose access to most of Xur’s weekly offerings. Each week, the Agent of the Nine returns to the Tower, one of two social spaces currently featured in Destiny , with one of the many exotic items available for each player class. Typically, the vendor will also sell an exotic weapon and a randomized item dispersed via engram ; however, “legacy” Destiny players will only be able to buy engrams after Destiny: Rise Of Iron goes live. And that certainly raises the stakes for anyone who relies on Xur to keep their collection growing.
Here’s the complete list of items Destiny players will find in Xur’s shop this weekend:
No Backup Plans (Titan - Gauntlets)
Graviton Forfeit (Hunter - Helmet)
Apotheosis Veil (Warlock - Helmet)
The 4th Horseman (Any - Shotgun)
