Well that doesn't sound so bad.

I guess I'm mostly upset now for sharding all the pulse rifles I had with Headseeker. That seems like it's going to be a viable perk again.

Or maybe just grind The Corrupted NF until I get that one PR back.

I saved one IB pulse with headseeker rampage just in case they untucked that perk.

Damaged perks are still better than D1 so maybe they’ll also make the guns shoot and feel as good as D1 guns (seems like they are based on Opulence season guns going that direction)

Unless the roll is irredeemable poo poo (looking at you moving target + firmly planted) now is a bad time to be dismantling guns. All the big youtubers have put a lot of effort into videos blabbing about what's going to be cool and great next week, but the reality is there are a LOT of changes going in and it's gonna take some time for the meta to really establish itself.

So if you got the vault space, hang on to everything that looks even slightly interesting.

Bungie said the weapon buffs even out the crit nerf.

They said that, but the numbers don’t add up. It’s a 30% buff & a 50% nerf. Bungie is also terrible at communicating, so maybe they should’ve said the buffs “mitigate” or “reduce the impact of” the precision nerf.

Maybe we’ll be able to headshot redbars with scout rifles once we’re not under leveled, maybe we won’t be able to. They did say they’re reducing the impact of being underleveled on damage to enemies.

I think that the handcannon change is going to make or break this franchise for me.

Same. If they fixed the 140/150 recoil animation, but nerfed HC range hard for “balance” and left bloom as-is, it’s going to big a big net negative.

It feels like Bungie spend Warmind-Black Armory buffing things, “making the player feel powerful”, then spend the last 6 months nerfing everything back down. Now it’s gonna be an even bigger nerf hammer, maybe down to Y1 levels again, so they can “keep things challenging” without any extra effort. Maybe they’ll nerf running speed again too.

They had to juice things to the max to save their lovely rear end game

With the actually substantive fixes to the underlying game in Forsaken and the direction they’ve moved with gunfeel from black armory through opulence it makes total sense to dial it back now

The hand canon changes do sound a bit much, but from a 30,000ft view I think all these changes sound fine

It looks like the gun has a long barrel and that's important enough to require Glory imo.

I don't give a heck what mode you play, I'm just expecting bungie to completely remove any need to play comp as part of their apology to PvE Only suckas for making Recluse so good

Or they might make it require 2100 Glory but no other steps, who knows!

It's just completed (but not claimed) bounties being reset. It's so tryhards can't leave a bunch of unclaimed bounties and cash them in for xp the minute SK goes live. Bounties still in progress will be fine.

I'm kind of sad breakneck is getting it in the neck, as it were, it's been my favourite pve primary since I got it. I know some peopvle dont like it, but its like a slightly worse recluse with enough range and accuracy for long shots.

VVV Ah, ok. Hadnt realised that.

It's not even that. Vanguard/Crucible/Gambit bounties are being reset as a function of their new rewards (Bright Dust!).

They give piddly little amounts of XP. The bounties that give TONS of XP (Spider, Ada, Hawthorne, etc.) are untouched.

I really doubt Bungie cares about people pre-loading ~3-5 Artifact Levels when they're allowing us to pre-load the entire 750 -> 900 climb with hoarded Tokens

So....what exactly should I do with my hundreds of saved up Vanguard and Crucible tokens?

I don't know if turning them in before would help me get achievements and pursuits completed, or if I should save them.

I really want to get my pursuits tab as empty as possible.

Save your tokens for Tuesday, because they will give more useful and valuable items then.

Hand in all Vanguard/Crucible/Gambit BOUNTIES beforehand, but save the tokens.

You can hold on to other (Non-vanguard/crucible/gambit) bounties if you want to boost your XP next season, but that's very optional.

What are you even rolling for that you’d need 5 or 6 of when it’ll probably be obsolete in 3 days. Hell, you can’t even play on Monday so it’s really 2 days.

Xur’s stupid-rear end engram gave me Mark 44 Stand Asides instead of the Huckleberry I wanted. I’ll probably never get it. It’s the only thing I’ve wanted in the 300 hours I’ve played so that’ll guarantee it’ll never drop.
