If you’re looking to farm for Strange Coins, pay attention to the weekly activity boosts for Vanguard, Gambit, and Crucible since those stack with all the rewards. While not directly helpful, you might as well also focus on the Rituals Pathfinder to earn some extra XP along the way. Your main goal, however, should be to spend 47 Strange Coins with Xur to earn the Favor of the Nine buff each week. It lasts 11 days and stacks up to three times, and it resets that timer every time you add a stack. Once you get a full stack going, you might get four times the normal amount of Strange Coins from every activity.

What to Spend Strange Coins On

The answer to this question largely depends on your own needs. The Exotic Weapon Catalysts, however expensive, can be a huge boon. Many are random drops in the world loot pool, so players can go hundreds of hours without getting the one they want.

The weekly pieces of Exotic armor, Legendary Weapons, and Legendary Armor depend on the rolls. But if a good option pops up, they’re the best overall value buy. The Strange Material Offers will often be worth the price, but those also vary wildly. The Wildcard Offer will undoubtedly offer up some great options sometimes.

Beyond all of that, if you ever find yourself in a position where you need to spend more coins just to get the Favor of the Nine, we suggest a Legendary Weapon Engram supplemented by a few Strange Gifts.
