This weekend, one of the biggest changes in Destiny 2 PvP went live. Trials of Osiris, and it’s predecessor Trials of the Nine have always been a sweaty PvP playlist, made for the ultra sweatlords fighting each other in order to get rewards at the Lighthouse. That is no longer the case.Continue reading “The Revamped Trials of Osiris in Destiny 2: S15 Season of the Lost”
I totally ripped that title off from a Sir Dimetrious video, but it’s more of the same this week. There are 4 pinnacle drops that are easy to get when playing solo, they can be painful to get, especially if you’re playing freelance, but still worthwhile, as the Peacebond, a new stasis sidearm, which is really good.Continue reading “Destiny 2: Iron Pain, the Saga Continues…”
The season is going on strong, and there was a bit of a lull until reset. TBH, I’ve been so busy raiding that I usually save the weekly story mission for around Thursday when I can play it by myself. The raid is satisfying. I’ve spent a lot of time in it, and I’ve gotten
17 28 clears so far. Here are some of the rolls I’m chasing from the Vault of Glass raid and this season.
As usual, I started this season’s Iron Banner, a level-enabled “end game” PvP mode in Freelance mode. That meant that I was getting matched with and against solo players only. As I’ve come to realize, that isn’t always the best.Continue reading “Destiny 2 Iron Pain & Iron Joy in Banana, Season of the Splicer”
IB is around again, and I’m actually playing this time around. There are 4 “easy” pinnacle bounties to grab per character, and they’re +2 pinnacles, so your LL will go up. For some reason (I must have been tired), I played regular queue for at least an hour.Continue reading “The Sweatiest Iron Banner Because I Forgot to Select Freelance”
Trials has always been an issue with the D2 community. There’s this meme of how they wanted to ship trials right. Instead, we got a playlist populated by cheaters and account recoveries, also ultra sweat lords.Continue reading “The State of Trials of Osiris In Season of the Chosen (Destiny 2 S13)”
Since S11, SBMM in Destiny 2 has been limited to comp and elimination in order to lower queue times. This made a lot of PvP mains happy because they get to stomp lower skilled players. But how much fun is it?Continue reading “Iron Pain: The Iron Banner Experience with no SBMM Destiny 2 S12”
Even as the best in slot kinetic sniper rifle, I actually had no real plans on trying to get it. But with the release of Trials of Osiris, it quickly became absolutely necessary, as the meta load out is Hard Light in the energy slot, and Revoker in the kinetic slot.
This week was Season of the Worthy’s first Iron Banner. It featured the only ritual weapon of the season and some pinnacle bounties all done in the chaos of IB. I spent a lot of time playing, and finishing the quest on all of my 3 characters. I also decided to try to get Revoker since the kills in IB count for double. Revoker is the best in slot kinetic sniper rifle, and most used sniper in Trials of Osiris.
With each new season of Destiny 2 comes a new sandbox, and each comes with slight adjustments. As such, each season has its own meta, a set of weapons that everyone will use when playing PvP. The new season came with a good buff for assault rifles (600-720 rpm). This meant that they would be used a lot more than previously.
