    So something I haven't seen anyone bitch about re: transmog:

    I assume there are probably several "destination" bounties available, but highlighting one that makes you play content that hasn't had relevant rewards in....years? is certainly a choice. Yes, please, Ada-1. I certainly want to go run some fucking blind well for transmog whosits. Certainly not, I dunno, Cosmodrome public events, for example!

    It gives people an actual reason to run Blind Well and thus help out anyone else who has to run it for other quests or the like.

    In general I feel like the "Destination" bucket is basically the lowest tier "fine, if you insist on refusing to literally do ANYTHING ELSE, you can do these quests" one though. It exists so people don't bitch that they are being forced into doing a playlist activity or a raid.

    Well good news, they recently updated Dreaming City weapons so that they’re current. I do a bit of DC stuff sometimes to see if I can get a good Retold Tale.

    I didn't know I needed it but now I need people to tweet up Gina Torres to get some decent Ikora voice work, like they've done with Zavala except Zavala actually gets to talk sometimes in the game.

    Pretty sure Lance is getting paid, at least SAG rates for official VA.

    The fun stuff on tiktok is different, but even then I think he Cameo'd the first and so got paid.

    Fallout did a video on my favorite current loadout, Dead Man's Tale and a Breach Loader GL. Unfortunately he does what I see a lot of people doing and uses a Truthteller, and it has Spike Grenade on it. This is way too small of a Blast Radius.

    Here's the godroll, and the best breach loader in the game by far with Blast Radius:
    c2yctp5qhbdr.png

    Smart Drift Control is a + in every column, Proximity Det is the key to making this loadout work for me personally as it allows for much more aggressive plays. Sometimes it fails to trigger and you get got, but 9/10 it's the best perk to have. In his video he shows how unreliable it is but in practice I find I land way more shots than I miss. Spike grenades are nice but I'm not always going for direct hits.

    Autoloading (which Fallout does use to his credit) so you never really have to reload and then Quickdraw/Quick Access Sling so you can always be whipping it out as fast as possible to get the edge against shotgun rushers.

    Still, it's a monster build no matter what and I figure because of this stuff the hipfire on DMT will eventually get nerfed.

    Also what is the point in running both Disruption break and Spike grenades, they'll be dead before you can take advantage of the debuff? Idk

    0r7f8vpendcy.png

    I just don't think it's a worthy trade off. Being able to take my mind off when to release the trigger is a huge thing, because if it just gets close enough it'll bop them. I can't see running Spikes all the time if you're not actively trying for OHKOs and that's way harder than just glancing them and hot swapping

    Time to make my own youtube video about this

    I don't know if it's different on console, but on PC I can tell you that the difference between spike and proxy in terms of actually landing a hit is MASSIVE. Spike nades lets the thing one-shot in what feels at least like 90% of situations but it also makes the hit box for the enemy incredibly small. Like "you can brush their armpit hairs as it passes between their arm and their body and still whiff the shot" small.

    Proxy nades + Disruption Break + Quick Access Sling is my go to. I'm still trying to find a truthteller that has all those + autoloading holster. I've only managed to hit 3/4 so far though. /sadface

    Yeah I'm sure the PC difference is a factor, but for my aggro play style I like Prox Det for being able to get into scraps and doing crazy movement, and not worry about when to release the grenade because it (should) get someone if it gets close enough.

    My biggest issue in close encounters is that while my grenades won't one-shot my opponent they seem to have no issue one-shotting me. Which is annoying and stupid and I hate it.

    I thought there was a unwritten trade off with blast radius, the less it was, the more impact + explosion damage happened. You could milk more damage out with direct hits and thats why its popular? A blast radius mastery was bad because it increased radius and lowered damage. And holding the button down is time you are spending not switching weapons to keep firing, but I think you are talking pvp builds so I guess it doesnt matter?

    It doesn't lower the damage, it just changes the ratio afaik.

    Velocity increase impact damage and decreases blast damage.
    Blast Radius increases blast damage and decreases impact damage.
    Overall the total damage remains the same I think.

    The best I have is Orewing's with Proxy / Quickdraw / Moving Target. I'm still holding onto my Militia's Birthright with Proxy / Quickdraw / Auto-loading Holster until Bungie bestows upon us another kinetic GL.

    These are the Truthtellers I mess with. Orewing rolls were generally less generous to me.

    I made my first talky crucible vid, time to steal all of fallouts twitch subs

    Fact checked myself, Truthteller does have the same blast radius, I was using a roll with a perk that lowered it as comparison

    I've often thought about making a series of Destiny Crucible videos from the perspective of a good but not very good and far from great player. I think it could be entertaining, but it would also be a lot of work that I don't have time for, so I don't, but someone should!

    I never really tried the light grenade launchers in PvP.

    See Local H Jay's video and think "oh wow, that looks fun"

    Rounding out my weekly bounties today and get a Truthteller drop with proximity grenades...

    Universe trying to tell me something eh?

    Edit: Do I only have until the end of the season to get Dead Man's Tale? That seems like a fun combo. Not really entirely used to how seasons and whatnot work, still adjusting to modern Destiny 2.

    The trick to making DMT worth it is to get the catalyst done as well, it's why hipfire is so accurate

    A nice 120 will pair just fine with a breachload GL too.

    I’m still bad at judging the hipfire distance on DMT. I keep hipfiring at inadvisable distances.

    You can hit some targets at absurd ranges with the hipfire on DMT. I was standing near one of the exits (on the inside, not even outside) on Burning Shrine hipfiring at a target at the edge of the outside (i.e. they could've jumped off the map) and was doming him repeatedly. He was top tree Dawn and flying through the air, but nope, yellow numbers every shot.

    Just put their heads near the bottom of the circular reticule :).

    ****

    I still think bow and a quickdraw 120 is better than breach GL / DMT, but both are honestly dumb and I hate 'em lol.

    Cameo isn't where you post stuff, it's where midtier celebs agree to read a five minute birthday message into their phone for like a hundred bucks. They aren't intended to go viral.

    Hmmm.... that sounds a little like I think it is shitty and I don't.

    Yes, I meant that alot of the Lance Reddick stuff isn't sourced from Cameo, he just puts it on twitter for the love of it, whereas the Ginna Torres one is likely something someone paid for on Cameo

    One quick thing to call out is that the opening area of the Vault of Glass will now be a private space for your fireteam, so don’t expect any backup from wandering Guardians. You won’t be able to abandon the mission and explore Venus (as tempting as that is). There is only one way forward and that is into the Vault.
