Meta guns are well and good, but the Halfdan-D I just got from Banshee with Outlaw & Rampage goes CHONK CHONK CHONK CHONK all moon long.

All the meta weapons always require mega quests or raid completions or both, so I’m always carrying something random. I love my misfit and ether Doctor, even though ARs that fire that fast have apparently been needed into the ground.

I've been rolling Ringing Nails from Ada-1. I fucking love it. Seems to have a bad rep though.

 

I love Ringing Nail too, it's great at a bit of distance so it pairs well with my Trackless Waste (another gun people never seem to mention, though I mostly play PvE to be fair).

This quest was no fun at all and I do not recommened any sane person doing it. But if you must, there's 3 more days of Momentum Control left. Grab your Fighting Lion/Play of the Game combo, and leave both your brain and your soul at the door.

I got the Gambit pinnacle weapon "Breakneck" the other day! Only took me eleven months :lol: 

 

And I just got the Oxygen SR3 for that other ancient pinnacle goal. :D I've been sticking with my trusty Polaris forever because of the combination of Dragonfly and Perfect Fifth, but Dragonfly and Meganeura sounds equally interesting... :wub:

I'm finding Momentum Control too difficult to make any meaningful progress. Seem to get killed myself before I can fire and detonate the grenades, often at a distance due to the amount of scout rifle users there.

 

I often don't survive long enough to get the medals. And despite progress in the other two categories, I still have 0 double kills. That's going to be the sticking point.

Just the 980 Nightfall left to do to get ready for the Undying title when the Undying Mind arrives. I've done this week's 920 a couple of times as part of a quest for the last of Eris' ghost buddies and that got hairy enough :ph34r:


Most of the requests I've seen on the PC LFG discord won't let you in without Izanagi's Bugged Quest Gun or Divinity. Does anyone here play late on the PC? It's 11pm in the UK when I can start playing during the week.


Missed this before, but I’m often playing on PC after 11 UK time. Happy to do higher level nightfalls, and I could really do with doing the quests for Thorn and Malefesence. I’m up for anything except raiding.

So the Undying Mind is...

  Hide contents

like the last VO boss, but easier to kill? I mean, I didn't expect them to rework the whole VO, but. Well. Hmm.

 


Was about to post the same thing after completing my first run of it. Not sure why I was expecting more but I laughed at it being so slight.

Aye, I was hoping for a bit more of a challenge, a different mechanic or something. Seems a curious lack of payoff for the slow build of the portal construction - not to say what's probably the last triumph to unlock Undying for a lot of people. I didn't expect it to be super hard or radically reworked, but just.... something a bit more than it was. Which seemed somehow even less taxing than the thing it replaced.

I used to like it when some of the quests were vague and you had to wait until Reddit worked it out but Randy's throwing knife is just annoying. I have no idea if it is bugged or not. I'm getting the medals described online and it seems pot luck if anything at all happens to the progress. I was stuck at 33% for days with no amount of clearing cache, secondary character, abandon quest making any difference. It has now ticked up but stuck at 35% again and I get medals that are meant to be 1% and nothing.

If I want to play Destiny 2 on my Xbox what’s the best way in? 
 

Should I just download the free to play version and play till I hit a wall the. Pay for more? Or should I buy shadowkeep now? (It’s in the sale for £18) Does buying shadowkeep off the bat give me any Immediate advantages over doing the former? Will best everything with that including forsaken? They’ve made it well confusing!

Play the free version. If you like it, you can pay for Shadowkeep later. I'm not sure how much the XP boosts in the battle pass affected how long it took me to finish it, but it's nearly over now so I guess if you're looking to finish that before the season ends buying Shadowkeep immediately might help. I'm not sure how feasible that is now though, @Gorf King or someone more knowledgeable might be able to tell you? 

 

Unless you're the type of person who absolutely must have every single thing completed, I don't think it's worth worrying about buying Shadowkeep now or buying Forsaken at all. Everything in Destiny shits more stuff at you, and if you're enjoying it and playing a lot you've always got lots of stuff to choose from. You don't need to buy everything unless you specifically want to have literally everything to choose from, and are willing to put in all the varied hours to get all that stuff.

Well, it depends what you want from the game and which bits you're most interested in. At the moment, there's not much point in buying season 8 stuff because the season ends in just over two weeks and stuff like the Vex Offensive will be gone then. But at the moment, season 8 comes with Shadowkeep anyway, and Shadowkeep content isn't going away. But also at the moment, Shadowkeep doesn't include Forsaken, which contains a lot more content than Shadowkeep. So really, if you're looking to gradually expand, Forsaken is probably first thing to buy. But if you wait long enough there'll likely eventually be a version of Shadowkeep that comes with it.

 

The new season starts on Dec 10, so you might as well wait until after that to see if anything shifts in terms of what deals are available.

137 - but I was in hospital and not playing for 2-3 weeks so I think I'd be about 30 more.

 

Without raiding or doing much pinnacle stuff (friends didn't come back...but friends tempted by £18 in Black Friday Sale) I've fallen off the hamster wheel.

 

We don't know anything about next season (thematically or mechanically in terms of power etc) do we?

I started the free version a couple of months ago. Free version is all the single and MP from the Base D2 plus all the DLC. Then I bought Forsaken as it had a big price cut a couple weeks ago. I still haven't got around to the Forsaken stuff. Single player wise there is a fuck ton of content. MP, you're barely locked out of anything, mostly the Season Pass stuff that's included with Shadowkeep although I'm not sure if future Seasons are included. You do get a ton of upgrades with each DLC but a lot of it is cosmetic and a lot can randomly drop though just playing. I'm lvl 920 with little effort and a lot of enjoyment on the way. I was tempted by the recent price cut with Shadowkeep but I'll hang off for now. I'm not saying don't buy it but it doesn't include the Forsaken stuff afaik and I will be buying it when I run out of stuff to do...which may be some time

 

tldr; jump in, see if you like it first

I could do with a little advice with trying get back into Destiny 2.

 

I finished the main campaign and did the first mission of Curse of Osiris last year (around when Forsaken came out).

 

When I started it up this week, my light level has shot up to 750 and my Titan has different abilities - Was this something that happened to everyone?

 

Any loot I find is level 750 - is that because the minimum level is now 750?

 

Thanks for any tips!

Loving Iron Banner on this. Weirdly I never got into it previously but I love control and the triple-lock mechanic is really great. 

 

On a different note, I'm mainly playing on XB1 at the moment but it's interesting that the PvP lag in Stadia seems to be a potential step-up. It's weird, because although there's no obvious "latency" on Stadia the controls feel "heavier" and not quite as crisp which I guess is actually lag. On the other hand, you don't get any of the annoying PvP issues that you get on XB1 - like games where you're shooting people and it's not registering or 5 shots arriving at you in an insta-death. On XB1 this tends to happen in specific games so I presume this as caused by other players with dodgy connections. It's also hard to tell at the moment because the Stadia community is so small that the games are inherently less competitive. But it's definitely an interesting case study.

Conversely Iron Banner has been an utter chore for me this time. I managed to get all 3 characters done for the triumph last time but the ability bounty is eluding me on my Warlock.
Also over the weekend I came to the conclusion raiding isn't for me, and aside from some Exotic quests I have outstanding I'm not sure why I'm still playing now :(

This last Iron Banner has been the worst for bounties, as always ability kills can get fucked on anything but an Arc Battery'd-up Titan, and the one where you get progress for killing people alongside your teammates has been replaced with weapon final blows only, which can also be a bit of a slog as it pits you against your teammates for final blows (as did a lot of the triumphs for the Undying title) or encourages you to try to split off and take more one-on-one gunfights, which goes against the spirit of the game mode.

 

They both took me a full 4 hours with my Hunter this time around because I forgot to lower my light level for bonus progress. It felt so good switching over to my Titan, sticking a 750 power weapon on to bring him down to 950 light and getting umpteen% progress on the ability kills bounty in most matches.
