Destiny players know what’s hot, and Exotic sniper rifle Ice Breaker is definitely warm.


Destiny vendor Xur offered Ice Breaker for sale last weekend, much to the delight of everyone yet to find this terrific bit of gear.

According to the latest Bungle Weekly Update, Xur sold 1,143,320 Ice Breakers.

He left the tower with 19,436,440 strange coins, or the equivalent of 2,159,604 weekly heroic strikes.

Ice Breaker is much loved by Guardians because of its high attack damage and regenerating ammo.

Bungie also shared some info regarding the new hard mode for the Crota’s End raid, which was completed an hour after launch by clan One and Done (and was first streamed on Twitch by tripleWRECK).

Within 24 hours of launch, hard mode has hosted 557,354 raid attempts. That’s double the number of attempts on the very first raid when it launched. The fastest successful hard mode raid to date was completed in just 27 minutes.
