Xûr, Agent of the Nine is an ally that can only be described as a black market figure, selling extremely rare and useful items. As we can see from many of the Exotic quality pieces of equipment, Xûr plays an important role in acquiring these items.
We have an in-depth text/video review for all the Exotic weapons!
Xûr sells objects of legendary power. He accepts his own currency, in service of his own enigmatic goals – or those of equally cryptic masters. Mysterious, too, is the nature of his presence in the Tower. Does he have some arrangement with the Vanguard or the Speaker? Are there those among the Guardian elite who understand Xûr’s nature and ultimate purpose? Or have all efforts to control his comings and goings simply failed?

Who are the Nine?
- The Nine are survivors of the cis-Jovian colonies who made a compact with an alien force to ensure their own survival.
- The Nine are deep-orbit warminds who weathered the Collapse in hardened stealth platforms.
- The Nine are ancient leviathan intelligences from the seas of Europa or the hydrocarbon pits of Titan.
- The Nine arrived in a mysterious transmission from the direction of the Corona-Borealis supercluster.
- The Nine are the firstborn Awoken and their minds now race down the field lines of the Jupiter-Io flux tube.
- The Nine are Ghosts who pierced the Deep Black without a ship and meditated on the hissing silence of the heliopause.
- The Nine are the aspects of the Darkness, broken by the Traveler’s rebuke, working to destroy us from within.
- The Nine is a viral language of pure meaning.
- The Nine are the shadows left by the annihilation of a transcendent shape, burned into the weft of what is.
Alliance with the Exo Stranger?
Though not much is known about Xûr, he will clearly be an instrumental part of our 20+ experience. There is a Grimoire card for Xûr in the “Tower Allies” deck.
Could the Exo Stranger be aligned with the Nine?
