Raid #2 (titan) wasn't great for loot.

Got the chest piece twice (worse stats) and the machine gun (ditto). So infused the gear into other stuff.  Still have my warlock I can run.

 

Finished the sword quest and got my Dark Drinker :D/ .  BTW, the spin attack is mad fun (run into the crowd and go ham)

Protip (just the tip) - don't bother with the Arc warden until you're ready to kill the boss.  My buddy was doing the arc sword quest and we weakened the arc warden for the final fight. But somewhere along the line, the arc warden died.  None of us touched him while prepping the other wardens, so we think cursed thrall explosions took him out before we were ready.

Ran it a 2nd time to get his sword.

 

Did my Sleeper stuff, but not sure I'll get the next part of the quest tonight because of when I turned in everything to Banshee ( Fuck  you Mars, for not spawning warsats :bomb: ).Think I turned it in after reset.  I'll find out soon enough :-|

I did get the 2 champion kills on Mars though.  And since sooo many people were waiting around for warsats, we took them down pretty fast 8-) . Now I get to take care of a wolf problem

I'm not sure trials is going to be that much different than it used to be. You'll either get teams that camp snipers and use the last word for close combat, or teams that rush with party crashers and Matadors with TLW equipped. Expect to see lots of sunbreakers.

PC, Mats and Felwinters won't be as prevalent since most out there are year 1 versions stuck at 170 light level.  But I agree it won't be too different.  I expect to see Hawkmoon and Last Word paired up with whatever good shotty's they've got (or 1000 yard stares).

I don't expect to see any 160 weapons (it would be funny though) I have a perfect 300 sniper and a 308 shotpackage Constheory, I also don't see a TLW besting any pulse rifle at midrange... I really want to play next week's events!

So here's what was written about S.S. in the gameinformer previews:

 

The Sleeper Simulant is a fusion rifle that will sit in your heavy weapons slot, so you know it packs a punch, since it needs to compete with weapons like rocket launchers and machine guns for your attention and use. Unlike most fusion rifles, its charged up blast can penetrate through multiple enemies and will ricochet off walls up to five times when fully upgraded. Think hand-held rail gun, and you're on the right track.

 

However, in order to unlock the gun, players first have to collect relics of the Golden Age which have been scattered across the various locations of Destiny. After players bring these pieces back to Banshee-44 (the Tower's gunsmith), the ancient artifacts trigger a memory in the ancient Exo gunsmith, and he will invite players on an odyssey to repair and reactivate one of the Taken King's most striking exotics. Bungie doesn't want to spoil the story content of this mission, but it did say that there will be unique tasks and objectives required for completion, which might even include puzzles that are too hard for any one player to figure out on their own.

 

While this sounds accurate to the quest we got, their description sounds faaar more epic... I wanna play THAT version of the quest :lol:

Posted 09 October 2015 - 12:25 AM

I still dont know which gun is good in pvp now. I got a few 300+ conspiracy theory Ds and 1000 yard stares so im good with special weapons. But not sure what to use for primary. I wish i had a 310 suros, but i dont. I do have a 310 hawkmoon and jade rabbit. But havent really tried the Jade Rabbit out. Also bought a 280 red death, but havent even infused it up any. Any recommendations? I think ill be playing a lot of iron banner and trials next week. So far this week after doing three raids and three nightfalls in one day, the only thing ive been doing is strikes with 3 of coin. I mean besides the sleeper simulant stuff.

Shot package is being removed from all shotguns, including ones that people already have. And they're planning to reduce the range even further than what they did in 2.0. Yaaaay! Now they just need to fix the ridiculous aim assist on sniper rifles and special weapons might finally be balanced.

They're getting rid of Shot Package, but NOT Hidden Hand.

 

Thanks, reddit.

I've tried hung jury (vendor), apple of discord (vendor), dealbreaker (vendor) and hawksaw (drop with rodeo and hls) and from all those the one I think that packs the most power is the apple of discord it's perks make it an almost perfect pulse rifle.

Also tried jade rabit and Boolean gemini but I didn't like the rate of fire for the jade and for the Boolean I just didn't like how it feels.

I've been using all of the ones you mentioned with much success. The Hawksaw and Apple of Discord tend to be my preferred legendary pulse rifle choice. If I run with a scout rifle I'll use Hung Jury, Tuonela SR4 or one of those exotic scout rifles usually paired with Conspiracy Theory D and The Vertigo launcher. 

 

I wish I could find a Hopscotch replacement but I don't think one exists in year 2.

 

Has anyone got an Imago Loop hand cannon to drop? It's supposed to be a fatebringer clone with similar stats and handling so I'm kind of curious. I've received a few Eyasluna hand cannons (which literally translates to Young Hawk Moon) with some decent rolls. It's not too shabby to use in PvP.

I don't have one but I've heard others say this a good replacement for the pilgrim.

Ive started to slowly...but I keep saving them in order to get materials in a pinch or when they request you to dismantle something for a quest. I'll probably hang on to the raid stuff kind of like trophies until I really get pinched for space.

This is my daily struggle. Exotics, once I have the year 2 version, get dismantled. Raid weapons and armor get saved. Unique exotics get saved (Mythoclast). Some stuff gets saved just for Crucible (Thorn, Shotguns). I'm really terrible at this. If I can get my vault down to 66/72 I'm happy.

Got a 310 Jade Rabbit from completing the weekly crucible bounties. Last week I got a 310 invective so I'd say I'm having good luck so far. I'm going to try JR a little bit to see if it's something I'll use, and if not I'll infuse it into something else.

For crucible, I've just been rocking the raid pulse rifle. I know that requires you to have beaten oryx and get the drop, but if you do it's definitely a good gun. Stable, fast fire rate and I've had firefly kick in to give me double kills more than a few times now.

My first legendary and the one I used the most until I got a new Suros was the apple. It's decent, but just wasn't cutting it for me so I scrapped it.

I just got my first 310 yesterday on nightfall, my first telesto...then while playing on my titan I got an exotic secondary drop (3ofcoinzzz), passed it over to my hunter and it turned into another 310 telesto. RNGeesus loves me but also loves doubling and tripling me.

 

Farming is a drag man...I'm on the step where I need 50 of those things from chests on the dreadnaught to get my scout rifle thing going...I'm like half way there. I just hardly feel like I have time to just run around and dig in chests when there is so much other stuff to do. 

 

I have a charged araganagadingdong rune if anyone else needs to do some court.

My arc sword is ready for armsday.  Also played thru the story on my 3rd toon so I could unlock the sword quest.  But was too wiped out to farm the flakes I need, so I'll try that tonight

 

Also did a quick check this morning and saw that I got the final mission for my Sleeper and should have that done tonight too.

 

BTW, let the Battlefront beta download overnight, so I'll be trying that too.  Maybe I'll catch some other Cag's on there.

 

I don't have one but I've heard others say this a good replacement for the pilgrim.
 

I've been trying out a few different pulse rifles (Villany, Apple, gunsmith Hakke) and I'd say the Suros is the closest to Hopscotch.

I've gotten 2 as random drops and my 2nd is a bit better because I'm able to max out stability. 

 

Still not sure if it'll be my main for IB though.  Need to practice with it some more.  Actually need more PvP practice in general.  Aside from dailies, I've been skipping most PvP in order to get caught up on the PvE side

 

But in the end, Hopscotch was such a beast because you could re-roll for Hidden Hand; pretty much guaranteed a 2 trigger-pull kill, everytime.  Without it, you end up with 3, maybe 4 trigger pulls.

What do you think is the best Sniper to infuse your 310 spindle into?  Hereafter?  Base roll 1000-yd stare (triple tap/perfect balance/mulligan)? 1000-yd stare with (triple tap/casket mag/outlaw)?  Other?

I would pick whichever 1000 yard state is your favorite. It has higher impact than hereafter and is a legendary instead of an exotic.

Hereafter generally isnt a one-hit-kill w/ headshot for PVE. 1kYard, however, is.

 

I imagine this will translate into Trials as well, I doubt Hereafter will be a revive-sniper (while 1kYard is).

Finally got my pre TTK exotic collection finished today when I pulled a 310 4th Horsemen from an exotic I got from using a 3oC on the daily. As far as ToO and IB go I am fully expecting it to be a Red Death fest.

Unupgraded, my Eirene RR4 has better impact and range than 1000 yard stare. And if you get luck in the chamber on it, thats a one shot body kill.

Have they confirmed if/when they are actually going to reduce the Black Spindle?   I know about the Deej post but now I'm not so sure what he meant by that, because it has been 310 way longer than I thought it would be.  I'd hate to lose out on getting something up to 308 or whatever but then again I like using the 310 Black Spindle as it is now in the Raid and it was very helpful this week.  I wouldn't even have had another if I had infused it into something because I'd be afraid they would just reduce then all by 20 light.  (I'd wait till after it is nerfed before getting another and relevelling it - I have a 310 Invective waiting for reinfusion into Black Spindle if needed...).

There was comment on a reddit post by Cozmo that seemed to indicate ALL black spindles are going to be brought down to 290, even if it's one you purchased from the blueprint and manually brought it higher than that.

Yep, which is why I haven't infused mine into something else and then bought a 300 one and infused something into that.  I don't want to lose my 310 and not have a good Spindle for raids, so I've been waiting.  I really wish they'd say when this is happening.  I guess there is a patch out next week and it could happen then - but then I thought it would have happened with that last patch and it didn't...
