Destiny Xur update: should you buy Gjallarhorn?

By Sherif Saed, Friday, 14 August 2015 10:43 GMT

Gjallarhorn, the most elusive weapon in Destiny, is in your reach this weekend.

Xur has answered the prayers of many and actually brought Gjallarhorn with him. Gjallarhorn, one of the game’s most talked about Exotics, can be yours for a mere 17 Strange Coins.

But the question remains, is it worth it? The answer is big bold YES!

Gjallarhorn is not just a good rocket launcher, it’s the rocket launcher to use. Anyone familiar with LFG sites will have seen the words “maxed Gjallarhorn” and “maxed Gjallarhorn only” in users’ comments. That’s because there are entire tactics to take down strike, raid, and Prison of Elders bosses that rely on having one.

For better or worse, these tactics are known by many and there isn’t any other rocket launcher that would do the job. Others can try, some may come even close, but Gjallarhorn is still the undisputed king.

Gjallarhorn is the easy fallback for many situations that not having it puts you at a disadvantage. Yes, it’s getting a nerf soon, but that doesn’t mean it will suddenly lose its flair.

Get one. Get two even. The Taken King may bring another to take its place, but until then, having one is essential.
