Had no luck getting Curtain Call or Sins of the Past, but it turns out there's another cluster launcher in Osiris
While it will mean actually TRYING to grind tokens for once, I'll be very glad for the "Give me things I don't have yet" option supposedly upcoming. Even though I did luck out with Curtain Call as one of my few strike turn ins, I want to fill out the rest sometime rather than getting a 5th Nightshade pulse.

I'm more curious if there will also be a way to go "Give me armor pieces I'm missing" specifically. Particularly with the still limited vault space, if you can't specify then sharding weapons you don't use could mean "Give me something I don't own!" giving you back a Rattler you just sharded for the seventh time while trying to get the Io armor.

Reduced severity of recoil on Hakke High-Impact Auto Rifles

I finally got a Halfdan a week ago and I've been playing around with it and a kinetic recoil mod. Really fun to shoot and it also has a satisfying donk-donk-donk sound while firing. This little tweak in the patch notes made this gun go from "good, but not as good as Scathelocke/Origin Story" to the automatic scout rifle that I always wanted. I did part of the Osiris story today and I was nailing Harpies and Hobgoblins and three-tapping distant Psions. It will probably the first weapon I'll make into a masterwork, depending on the perks.

Give it a try if you're using a controller, it's quite nice when paired with an Actium War Rig.

i've been getting random blue drops on the floor at 297-299 for my characters who were in the low 290's so it quickly bumped my rank up to 301, but it seems to have stalled out around there, so i'd say that's the new softcap

Doing it while on a pike mid-air causes you to do a barrel roll.

it's even more frustrating because i haven't even gotten purple mods that i like for all my equipment yet and those cost money to roll for and a hefty chunk of change to slot, i should theoretically be spending it on that instead of pretty princess dress up. theoretically.

Right now (at least for me) Kinetic purple mods are on the short list of "Guaranteed purchase with 5 mod materials and 10 shards" so check out the gunsmith if you've got shards to spare. I'm always running low for whatever reason. I guess I spend too much time feeding Blues to my gear and multiple guns of the same category instead of waiting for a same type purple I don't wanna keep.

Everything else has so many options to cram at least SOMETHING into a hunk of armor, or an Energy/Power weapon. No luck on recovery legs? Shove some Solar Melee into your pants in the meantime.

But I've been hanging onto a Minimum Distance I don't use too much, my very first "Came with a purple mod" kinetic, because Kinetic mods are pure strain RNJesus.

is it case of "literally best" to slot resilience/mobility/recovery into armors or is it a matter of preference? with the aforementioned nezarec's void warlock running two void guns i've got void grenade and void melee cooldowns in the armor bits i've bothered to slot just to get me my various sources of devour back that much faster, but i'm sitting at 4 resilience and 9 recovery (0 mobility)

but i did take advantage of the kinetic mods at the gun shop, because i swear those things are rarer than any other loving mod in the game
