You get an Icebreaker! You get an Icebreaker!

Seriously though Xur came through big time this weekend. If you don't have one, get one.

The most versatile weapon in the game = Icebreaker.

Why? The ammo regen on Icebreaker means you'll always have ammo for your secondary, even if you aren't using Icebreaker. Switch to Icebreaker, let the ammo regenerate, switch back to desired secondary and you'll have ammo.

Plus, it destroys on Solar burn Nightfalls. Juggler? Icebreaker says "meh".

DO IT!

Already put my new baby to work. Good hitting power and generates secondary ammo right out of the box.

Couldn't be happier with Xur this week.  IceBreaker is mine.

Now back to grinding out Iron Banner.

I have a weekly left also, so if I'm on tonight look me up (I know some folks want to run a raid so worst case, I'll be on Saturday.)

You can also get strange coins from roc strikes, a gold chest on mars, and as a reward for doing public events.

With my luck, the public events will drop shards/ energy like they have all week and it will take 20 rocs to get 5 coins.

It will be much quicker to do the weekly and grab the 9 coins, then on to IB/raid after a quick stop at the tower for my new toy... 

I'll look for you guys, 9:30 EST at the latest but probably earlier tonight.

I need it too!! I'm a level 29 Hunter, and I have 14 SC. I did the Weekly last night but on level 24. Couldn't do it on a harder level because one of my fireteam wasn't high enough. I'll most likely be on after 10.30 EST. I usually run with my bro who's a level 29 Warlock.

The Icebreaker is a real game changer. I never understood how much.

The IB is great as a Thrall burner up close. A noscope into the nearest Thrall will produce a chain reaction that takes them all out. Works great for the Eris bounties where you need to kill 3+ Hive with your secondary 5 times. I do it on the Warmind mission. Let the Thrall swarm, then pull the trigger.

Finished ranking mine up last night.

This gun is ridiculous. You can almost play the whole game with it. I guess not having one for so long helped me learn and rank up more guns.

I still covet it though and do not want it nerfed.

I expect to see more Solar and Arc Strikes/Stories in the future.

Not to judge, since I don't own one myself nor do I presently possess the coins to purchase, but I am noticing exactly NO similar excitement regarding Xur's current offering of No Land Beyond.

I've got one sitting in storage (from a raid).  Its soo terrible, I want to shard it, but as bad as it is, I just gotta think someday, somehow, it should be cool.

I sharded mine so I could upgrade my icebreaker. :) 

I doubt Bungie has NLB even on the radar of its list of shit to fix.

I have my NLB fully upgraded and it took a looong time.

I can't figure out where it fits in but its boom is cool and it looks so retro I probably will keep it. Maybe it has hidden magic. Yeah, that's probably it. Maybe it has a coolness multiplyer.

Its a fun weapon to plink around with in patrols or in Crucible, if you can consistently land headshots.

As I think about it, I wonder if Bungie purposely made No Land Beyond the way it is as a counterbalance to the Ice-Breaker.

Yes they did. It was created so you could wash away your sins from using the Ice-Breaker. ;)
