Friday, November 7 marks the ninth weekend of Xûr, Agent of the Nine, showing up in Destiny’s Tower. The mysterious vendor is back with a new assortment of exotic armor, weapons, and curios for PlayStation and Xbox players to buy, but the question must be asked: Are we reaching peak Xûr?
Those looking for Xûr should head turn right and head toward the hangar after spawning at the Tower. Once you’ve gone through the long hallway and entered the hangar, turn right and you will see the seller of Exotics. Here’s where you can find him on the Tower map just to be sure though.
Xûr and his items will only be available through the morning of Sunday, November 9. He disappears again once the clock strikes 5 a.m. ET / 2 a.m. PT.
The Exotic goods for this week see the return of items that have been sold repeatedly in the past. With only six Exotic items per class in Destiny currently, this is bound to happen. This is now the fourth time that Sunbreakers have appeared, the third time for the Crest of Alpha Lupi, and second for Mask of the Third Man and Truth. Still, it’s a good opportunity for those who are working on their second or third Guardian, or have gotten started late to the level 20-plus grind. Thanks again to DestinyDB for the Exotic information below.

For those wondering what to get, here are a few helpful hints.
The Truth rocket launcher is one of the Void-based rocket launchers in the game. The community debates whether it or Gallajorn is preferred, but it likely comes down to personal preference. This particular weapon has two shots before needing to reload, and each rocket will track a target and explode once in proximity. The blast radius is large and the velocity is quite good when upgraded.
The Crest of Alpha Lupi chest armor is for Titans focused on team play. Two perks grant more Auto Rifle and Special Weapon ammo, but the Keeper of the Pack perk allows you to revive fallen teammates very quickly, and you are revived faster in return.
The Mask of the Third Man makes Hunters who roll with the Bladedancer sub-class that much more hated. The Switchblade perk increases melee attack speed while the Unstable Current perk makes Arc Blades attacks use less super energy. That means the Bladedancer Super Ability will last even longer and be even more deadly.
The Sunbreakers are for all the Warlock Sunsingers (aka Sunbros) and has a specific focus on the Solar Grenades. The Serpent’s Tail perk reduces the grenade cool down when meleeing while the Helium Cycle perk increases the duration of the Solar Grenade.
