Destiny's Xur merchant is back in the Tower.YouTube

Destiny's Xur Agent of the Nine, the merchant within the Tower, returns for the 8-10 January weekend and offers new exotic weapons, armours and other rare goods that can be exchanged with Strange Coins. Xur is known to appear only on weekends.

Xur's inventory has been disappointing for Destiny players in the past few weeks. But then, Xur has provided the fan-favourite Gjallarhorn, in the past.

Last week, he showed up with Empyrean Bellicose and Starfire Protocol, which have been offered several times. He also brought Sealed Ahamkara Grasps and Invective.

So when we compare it to the offerings from last time, we cannot complain much. Nevertheless, these offering from Xur are something Destiny players look forward to and he has released a new set of exotic gears this week as well.

This is Week 70 of Xur's appearance. Xur will be found standing in Tower North across from the Speaker's room. Xur will only be available from Friday 5 am ET and depart at 5 am on Sunday.

Here are the items in Xur's inventory for the 8-10 January weekend:
