It’s the day after Christmas, and Xûr, Agent of the Nine, didn’t leave a lump of a coal in the stocking of PlayStation and Xbox Destiny owners. Instead, he brought a new Exotic weapon to purchase in the form of No Land Beyond and upgrades for Gjallarhorn, Helm of Saint-14, and more.
Those looking for Xûr should run straight ahead towards the Vanguard hall, after spawning in the Tower. He is located to the right of the table that the three Vanguards are standing at, against the wall. Here’s where you can find him on the Tower map, just to be sure.
Xûr and his items will only be available in Destiny through the morning of Sunday, October 26. As soon as the clock strikes 5 a.m. ET / 2 a.m. PT, he will be gone.
All of the Exotic armor on sale from Xûr has been offered before. The Armamentarium in particular has been on sale in Destiny numerous times. Meanwhile, the Warlock gauntlets were on sale last week and the Hunter helmet the week before that. The Exotic weapon is a first appearance, but may be disappointing to many. Don’t forget that you can start and complete the “Urn of Sacrifice Quest” now that Xûr is around.
Here is what is available for sale and upgrade from Xûr this weekend. Thanks again to DestinyDB for the Exotic information below.

For those wondering what to get, here are a few helpful hints.
No Land Beyond is one of the extremely rare special Exotic weapons that can fit in the primary weapon slot. It is, in fact, the only Sniper Rifle that can be used as a primary weapon. However, its performance may leave you preferring to use a Scout Rifle with a high impact rating instead. The precision damage multiplier on NLB is only 3.5x versus the 5.0x of other Sniper Rifles. It also requires a reload after each shot that takes approximately two and a half seconds. If you want to engage in extremely long-distance fights or wait for Bungie to give it an upgrade, NLB may be worth your coins.
The Armamentarium chest armor for Titans is for those who like to use their special weapon, heavy weapon, and grenades frequently. It comes with three upgrade perks that allows users to carry additional ammo for the two weapons classes, plus an extra grenade.
Achlyophage Symbiote is for Gunslinger Hunters, and gives an extra shot to the Golden Gun with the Last Man Standing perk. Fastball will increase grenade throw distance, and Ashes to Asset will help replenish Super Energy with each grenade kill.
Claws of Ahamkara are the other Warlock Exotic gauntlets in Destiny, and can be used with either sub-class. The Whispers perk allows for two fully-powered melee attacks, and the Snap Discharge perk increases melee attack speed. If you want to build a melee-powered Warlock, these gauntlets are for you.
