Let's face it, sometimes Xur can be a little stingy on the Exotics, bringing the same stuff week after week after week. But once in a while he goes out and totally redeems himself, and this week was one of them.
Long has the Zhalo SuperCell been one of the more rare and difficult exotics to obtain, and this week Xurs made it as easy as turning in a few strange coins. While it's not the stand out power house it used to be, it's still one of the alst primary weapons available with elemental damage (Arc no less!), and some pretty neat perks. One of the more entertaining perks is the chain lightning that will spread to tighly grouped packs of enemies. Another is an ammo refund that activates on multi-kills, good stuff.
That being said, you're not going to find Oryx hard mode groups looking for a player with a Zhalo, but it will come in handy in other PvE situations, especially Nightfalls with arc burn. If you haven't added this particular tool of destruction to your inventory yet, you can pick it up from Xur in the Shipyard before the weekend comes to a close.
