Now that bungie has nuked all the hacker account i am the #1 glory ranked player across all 3 platforms.

I am not sure what their 5500 tie breaker is. Maybe a combination or games played, win
% and kd... but I'll take it.



Wavesplitter and sidearm. gently caress the meta.

I will cry when they sunset my smugglers. No other sidearm feels this good

I could honestly handle the nightmarish grinds if it weren't for the fact that they all encourage what amounts to trolling your team in any kind of group activity.

At this point, with how obviously negative and damning the last few pages of both the console and PC destiny threads have been.. I seriously canít tell anymore if these ďIím new is it worth it?Ē posts are just pure troll jokes or not.

I mean.. honest question. Have you read the last few pages of this thread or the Pc thread?

At one point I used to play a lot of Destiny 2 (picked it up when it was a freebie on PSN in 2018 before upgrading to Forsaken), and loved the gunplay/gameplay, even as a mostly solo player. Though I'm probably in a minority and also enjoyed running Strikes with pubbies.

I haven't played for about a year, Season of the Forge was the last time I put serious energy into the game, unlocking all Forges with all 3 characters and attempting to farm frames with all 3 is what probably ended my interest in the game. So when Prime Gambit came out I called it a day, as a sub-par PvP player I couldn't help but think I was a hindrance to my team even more than regular Gambit.

I logged in for the 1st time in a year this week and not surprisingly there are a lot of (small) changes, UI, gear stats, Artifacts etc. I was preparing to set myself the task of getting reacquainted with all these but to be honest after reading the last few pages of this and the PC thread I'm not sure I'll bother. I'm assuming most of the big changes to the game/story are behind the Shadowkeep expansion and I'd guess I'm not going to get much as a PvE/Solo biased player (are the 2 new Strikes even any good?) as there seems to be a continual push for either PvP modes like Trials or Horde mode gameplay.

The most Destiny 2 thing to do is spend months and months getting a gun then grinding out the catalyst.

Then angrily throw it in your vault once it's all finished and hope to never use it again.

Right now I'm grinding the Polaris Lance and Sunshot Catalyst. It's real fun when you have to firefly weak enemies, specifically next to other weak enemies, to move the need .01% towards completion.

Edit - When I finished the top bar of kills for Sunshot, the bar under it for firefly kills was 6%.

I farmed Polaris Lance catty in the Castellum, very easy. Lance slaps and itís one of the. Enter catalysts, IMO.

Iíve been thinking about what one poster said about how Legendary and Pinnacle weapons are too good, and how the meta shifting away from Exotics being the best guns is bad for the game, and I just canít help but agree completely. Certain exotics being top tier Raid DPS or powerful PvP gear seems really good to me, and the all legendary pinnacle meta really homogenized the game and made it feel less like Destiny and more like COD, which sucks and is bad.

I stopped playing for primarily this reason. The bloat, the sluggishness, the tower loading, the inventory, lots of these things are asinine after playing for so long. But the guns. I feel like there are just way too many and none of them matter.

I stopped playing because there were only 2 truly active PC clans. The clan I was in was completely full of goons who never communicated or talked to each other. We would routinely have like 35-40 people playing but maybe 4-5 people in chat or Discord. As a PvE player that made raiding suck.

So I would get my weekly raids in Overchill, but that group coagulated into routine weekly groups so fast that the only I got to raid Garden was when someone else dropped.

Back in Black Armory or Last Wish I could scrape a raid together any night of the week but for some reason Garden didnít draw people in and after two weeks of no raiding and barely seeing any interest in HOTDOG I just stopped trying

Getting back into this, should I buy the current season at this stage? I liked the look of the new shotgun plus fourth horseman, but would I be able to progress with these sepraph towers of whatever and is there any point considering itís only 2 weeks or so until the new season.

Check the free/season pass roadmaps to see what you can get without paying. Honestly this season has been a drag and required Bungie to make a ton of adjustments due to player disinterest and poor planning.

Now really isn't a good time to get into this season, not only has it been kind of a mess but there's not much time left for grinding stuff and the grind is now much harder than it was at the start of the season. Nobody is going to be doing seraph towers very much unless another major quest is revealed (and even then it's iffy whether the community collectively decides it's worth it after all this BS).

Is it even possible with the time left to get 4th Horseman? I logged in for the first time in like 2 months last night, but apparently you need to do some legendary thing at 1000 light level to finish the quest and my highest guy is at 960, I haven't unlocked any bunker stuff, and none of my pals are playing so I won't have any help in doing it.

You can get the Tommy gun immediately and start the catalyst for that.

The forth horseman quest is fast and easy to do and you have time to find two people to help you through it even at low light.

any area where lots of weak enemies stack up will be your bet

green room from whisper mission, shuro chi checkpoint, altars of sorrow on the moon, some of the ascendant challenges in dreaming city could work but those are on rotation, uhhhhhhhh, reckoning???, the hephaestus adventure on mars (just don't stand in the thing at the end)

but just stick with the first three yeah

Yeah there's a nook at one end of the green room, if you duck in there endless waves of shadow thralls will crowd into the choke point trying to get to you. Shoot them once, set off a huge wave of explosions, repeat.

Yeah I just made the switch to smugglers/wavesplitter, and, uh,

It's insane. Especially with 2x enhanced sidearm targeting, 2x auto rifle enhanced unflinching, 2x enhanced sidearm reloading, and enhanced sidearm dexterity. Throw stompees on top of it all? lmao.

Yes. This is exactly my build. You probably copied and you should because its an excellent build.

My smugglers has moving target which adds +10 to aim assist and aim assist caps out at 100. So having 2 enhanced sidearm targeting mods is not required. But wavespltter already has 100 aim assist so its whatever.

The double enhanced unflinching auto rifle really makes it shine.

I got the coldheart catalyst last night and its right up there with wavespltter now. Ill try it out more and see what i think.

Thanks for the recommendations - I'll take ten minutes a night and get it knocked out.

The last Altar on the Moon gave me the Blasphemer shotgun, which is pretty nasty for the crucible.

Also, gently caress Jotunn in the crucible. It's a loving rocket launcher that takes special ammo.

That's my preferred spot for killing things, and where I got my shotgun kills for Felwinter's. Not far from where you load in, can have public event banners nearby, you don't need to waste time running through corridors, group spawns right in the open where you can kill them with a single AoE blast. Only downside is that hitting the exploding censers can rob you of some kills.

I have never seen more desperate attempts to shotgun me using wavesplitter. Like I see them equip, run straight at me while Iím jumping up and if they even are alive by the time they slide theyíre still not even close and severely outranged by smugglers. What an amazing loadout. So much fun.

Why don't they bring back the Sparrow races? That cannot be all that hard to program and set up.

I missed the sparrow races when they happened. It sounded, you know...fun. It also doesn't involve throwing a ball.

Oh God, now they will bring it back but add checkpoints where you have to hop off and throw a ball at a thing then get some vague thing like, "Get precision kill with a semi-automatic void weapon after casting a super that kills no less then ten but no more than twelve enemies."
