So close to Gjallarhorn and yet so far.
There’s a running pool on when Destiny’s Exotic vendor Xur will next stock the Exotic rocket launcher Gjallarhorn (considered arguably the best heavy weapon in the game). As the Agent of the Nine returns to the Tower for May 15th, he indeed brings an Exotic rocket launcher. Except it’s the Truth.
You’ll find Xur near the Speaker where he will remain till May 17th, 1 AM PST and it’s worth noting that while Truth is no Gjallarhorn, it’s still an excellent Void rocket launcher for 17 Strange Coins. Besides absolutely murdering Praetorians and mobs on Void Burn strikes, it’s aggressive tracking makes it an excellent Crucible rocket launcher.
Other weapons for this week include An Insurmountable Skullfort (Exotic Titan helm), Knucklehead Radar (Exotic Hunter helm) and Apotheosis Veil (Exotic Warlock helm), each available for 13 Strange Coins. Exotic Gauntlet engrams are also being sold for 23 Motes of Light each.
Head here for the full list of Exotic upgrades, although with House of Wolves set to release on May 19th, you’re better off waiting to ascend your Exotic gear without wasting precious glimmer and resetting progress. Still, Xur’s upgrades will be useful if you find a nice stat roll that you want.
