    I tried to get 100K on the Nightfall like 6 times for the pinnacle drop and failed
    and then I go over to crucible and realize I don't even have to win a match to get one?
    what is my brain

    Yup! I'm really bad at crucible but I blunder my way through a few matches every week because of that.

    I somehow only *just now* found out that the nightfall has tiers where matchmaking is enabled.

    feel way better about the objectives where I need to defeat champions in strikes.

    I finally got that motherfucker Phylaks this morning. I may have just had a better set of guns (some random auto rifle and rocket launcher and the new exotic slug shotgun) or it might have been switching from gunslinger to nightstalker, who knows, but I did it

    Now I can do - let me see here - oh yeah the rest of the dang campaign

    The Nightfall 100k pinnacle is a +2 one, while the crucible/normal strike/gambit pinnacles are +1, but the UI doesn't display that anywhere. It's very hard to get 100k if you're doing a matchmaking tier, especially now that the strikes where that was pretty easy are gone.

    I’ve gotten 100k on heroic nightfall exactly once, and it was on Titan

    I started a Titan and if I’d known that one of the Arc supers was just flying forward like Superman to punch a bad guy in the face... Well, I would have played more Titan.

    The power of Yeet features strongly in many of the Titan sub-classes (fire hammers, void shield, yourself but with electricity, etc.)

    I'm still holding on to some ancient legendary gear I think I carried over from D1 and also the MIDA extra-dimensional multi-tool combo. I've got lots of other situation specific weapons bit this is my main run around shoot stuff build.

    FYI, with Salvation's Grip it is now possible to get both secret chests in Last Wish from the Shuro Chi checkpoint. Saves a bit of time, and also means that Hunters can get that one solo again.

    Here's a clip I made showing the path up and where to shoot the icicle in order to make it clip you through the door.

    Top tree arc titan is great fun.
    Two grenade charges, superman punch melee and a fuck all y'all super.

    It used to be great in Crucible too, but not so much these days.

    Because of the way the score modifiers work it's really hard to get a 100k Nightfall outside of the 1250 and up varieties, which means they're really hard to get without a fireteam. If you go on an LFG site there are usually people asking for 100k nightfalls/no mic so you don't necessarily have to talk to the people you're playing with (you could also just create that request for yourself, people will do it).

    Also if you're playing Titan you should try out the Dunemarchers exotic legs, they add the power of chain lightning to all Titan yeets and they are my favorite thing.

    I have stumbled through Iron Banner enough to where I have 3 of the 4 bounties done. Last one I have is kills through abilities.

    I wonder how unfair to my team it would be if I just focused on trying to get those done. Probably pretty unfair, yeah? Also not terribly fun, if I’m just using those abilities there’d be a long wait for cooldowns.

    I’m also trying for the quest just to do it, but the current step requires scout rifle kills of which I have... 2. I’m sure I could get it eventually, but dang, even with all the scout rifle boosting mods equipped I am still complete ass. Maybe I should try an exotic scout rifle.

    Dunno when you dipped in and out but Symmetry is a very good exotic Scout Rifle, which was a season pass weapon a few seasons ago and so you might have it but have forgotten about it. Jade Rabbit and Polaris Lance are also popular but they're not as much my cup of tea.

    I never saw much Symmetry in crucible, it was around in Gambit for a hot minute though

    Remember when MIDA was the the only viable Crucible gun?

    I definitely was dead weight for my Crucible team last night as I insisted on getting my precision and shotgun kills for the Chaperone exotic quest rather than using guns and tactics that would actually help

    Hey, enough practice with Chaperone or another good slug shotgun and you will be actually helping your team quite a bit.

    There have been many a time where I have went up against some absolute monster who knew their map surroundings and their ideal engagement distance with Chaperone. And they have been near impossible to get the better of, just one-shotting anyone that gets near them.

    A big thing to remember is there are armor mods that decrease ability timers, mostly via certain triggers, but there’s also just the ones for stats that control the timers themselves.

    And don’t worry about being dead weight, it’s all part of the play experience, sometimes it feels like the whole team is there to fulfill a quest requirement or ten.

    Precision kills in crucible are the bane of my existence.

    Honestly, grenade kills are harder (for me) than precision
