@redbloodcel @pinholestar will have an idea as they both got it from spoils. 

 

I need to do a raid tonight if you fancy it. Would also like to try the glitch to get more than 6 in before they patch it if anyone else is up for it.

What time? If it's late I may be able to, although I'll have to be off mic. But following instructions!

I'm in if you need a warm body to do shoot things and carry nukes while ignoring the actual roles, especially if it's early-ish evening. Would also love to try the massive group glitch when we have enough people to try it.

You get 10 for each of the "hidden" chests in the raid, per character, per week, so 20 total per raid, or if you run it again with the same character you get 5 per encounter that gives loot, which would give you 15 for a full run. 

 

You can also farm the first encounter for unlimited per week if you have the time to invest into that, but that requires a little bit of setup.

What class are you?

 

I hated the False Promises when I first tried it but I got a roll with Killing Wind, Swashbuckler and Stability masterwork, and I use it with the armour Actium War Rig which constantly refills my magazine, meaing I rarely reload. It hits like a truck and has great range and I love the thing.

 

The Actium War Rig is just great fun in general, I ran a strike earlier with Sweet Business and didn't reload it once.

 

I like the Monte Carlo but it sucks from range.

 

I still love Sweet Business and Actium. So good in Gambit - people rarely do more damage than me to the Primeval.

12-manned the raid last night (well, 11 as I think one of them was so stoned he fell asleep). It was hilarious just watching everything get melted and you should definitely give it a try if you can. It's not really any easier as it's the easiest raid ever but it took only took about 20 minutes.

 

Also, ran the master nightfall for a bit as a 10-man afterwards and got 5 ascendant shards and a shit ton of exotics and 7 or 8 Shadow Price as you get 1 or 2 per run.

 

Good for Bungie to just say 'have at it, we know you're having fun'

Well it’s quite simple really, though beware: it is a long story, told in tears.

 

You’re a dead Russian and were brought back to life by Peter Dinklage and a sentient moon to fight crime. You join a group of zombies who like to dress up, kill things including each other, and hoard military equipment and celery. Along the way you meet lots of alien races - the hyaena pirate people, the fat roman turtles, the robot timelords, the Prawn Flood, and the Glitching Doodle Fucks - and you kill them all. You kill them all and take all their stuff and in the end you have, if anything, too much stuff and it’s causing storage issues at the tower of zombies. So Savathûn, Queen of Prawns, causes the turtles to invade the zombie tower and blow it all up and reset the timeline. This means you have to start killing things and hoarding stuff all over again from scratch. The zombie group all hate this and some of them quit being zombies altogether in disgust. 

 

Those that remain sigh a weary zombie sigh and start by killing all the turtles who invaded and taking their stuff, then playing Mike Reid’s Runaround in a palace in the sky and taking all the stuff from there too. It’s new stuff but it’s just not the same as the old stuff, not nearly as good, and eventually a load more zombies get fed up and quit being zombies. Zombies are getting a bit thin on the ground at this point, so Savathûn sees an angle here and starts selling back the old gear the zombies used to have, but only one or two pieces every three to six months as part of a sort of renewable contract, for cash. Begrudgingly, some of the zombies start trickling back, moaning all the time as zombies do. But it’s not enough to sustain Zombie Land.

 

So Savathûn gets the other queen - the queen of the space pixies, whom Savathûn’s brother had killed before you killed him, and after you killed his son - who herself had a brother, who didn’t like zombies - to get you back into the killing and looting game again. This involves her endlessly resetting the timeline so things become so much better - but now they’re worse again - and now, jesus, they’re really, really shit - oh and look, now they’re much much better again! This is called Savathûn’s Curse, aka the season pass model. And also Savathûn gets Prawn Porn Queen Brother to kill your best mate zombie, but this time for reals. So you kill him. The crowds love this and everyone comes back.

 

Eventually everyone is content in Zombie Land and happy with all the gear they’ve hoarded. This isn’t good for the renewable loot business and threatens to break the light/dark cycle, so eventually Savathûn gets her minions to take a load of the new, new loot away again, saying ‘oh, look, the sun went down and *poof* it took your stuff away, soz about that’. Much as Savathûn is an excellent dissembler, this isn’t fooling anyone, least of all the the canny, greedy zombies.

 

Savathûn tries to sweeten the pill by bringing Porn Queen Brother back to life as a zombie - remember, he hated zombies so this is what is called dramatic irony and should make everyone gasp and lol - and that kinda works because the zombies have never encountered dramatic irony before so it strikes them as fucking genius. But it’s not quite enough, because it turns out the zombies fucking hate losing loot even more than they love dramatic irony, and threaten to leave in droves again, so after a few months Savathûn says, look, I won’t do this any more, except to all the stuff I already did it to, which is most of the best stuff. The zombies all shout 'hooray for Savathûn, she is a brilliant queen!' as they all come back and start collecting loot to make up for the last lot of loot that was just taken away. Savathûn chuckles.

 

With almost everyone back on board, it’s still not enough for Savathûn or any of the other stockholders, so she announces that we should keep trying to get the new loot, because we’ll need it if we have any hope of beating her - because we’re going to get to fight her in a couple of year’s time! All the zombies are up for this and get really excited. They start to kill more things and get more loot to make up for the old lost loot and the new lost loot, because they’ll need it to finally beat Savathûn, and they really, really want to kill her after all the shit she’s put them through. ‘Ahem, I might have to fuck with some more of your loot before then though, it’s just a teensy bit too powerful,’ she says slyly, just to test the waters. ‘Whatever, I’m busy glitching a 12-man Nightfall,’ say the zombies, handwaving away this mildest of threats. ‘We’ve had worse.’ Savathûn can barely suppress a guffaw. ‘Oh, and I’m delaying your final fight with me a year… maybe. That ok hun? I’ll tell you what, I’ll make it up to you by adding more season passes in. And that means more loot!’ The zombies grunt and barely look up from electrocuting the fat shank over and over again - it’s double loot week, don’t you know? Savathûn wipes away tears of laughter. She is pleased. Savathûn is always pleased.

 

Wait...... Russian?

How easy is this 12 man thing? Is it like a lot of admin? Still haven’t recovered from the slow hell of getting a 9 man team in for Escalation Protocol.

 

Also, yea I know I had a pop at loadout militants earlier in this thread but people bringing in Bows for Battlegrounds and Gambit have to be the first against the wall. Twanging away and being totally ineffective because they have some poxy bounty quest to unlock, acting like some lord prince on their reservation taking cursory jabs at the natives whilst I’m slogging away up close and personal spamming everything I have.

I think the last time I've used a bow during this season in any proper capacity is with Sympathetic Arsenal, so I can immediately snap back to a fully loaded grenade launcher/machine gun combo. Maybe that'll change with Ticuu over time, but I doubt it.

TBH, I'm surprised people even attempt to knock out weapon bounties in actual gameplay when you can just hop to the Moon and get them done in about two minutes flat. I went from 25% to about 75% of my DMT Catalyst in about half an hour of lazily popping heads of hive.

Although I probably enjoyed it more because it's Dead Man's Tale. Eat your grits, fellas.

Yeah, I did the Bad Juju catalyst in no time by pretty much just standing still and holding the fire button down during the altars of sorrow.

I'm working through The Lament questline and was shocked to unlock No Time to Explain halfway through. I didn't think I was eligible for it but I guess it's included with Game Pass.

I think it’s for the Prismatic Recaster sniper/bow unlock so those awful people can chase their “god roll” sniper that will definitely make them better at shootmans.

 

Some bows are great fun tbf, the Trinity Ghoul all catalysted up puts on a show.

love the NTTE for solo lost sectors (at least last season), the extra turret feels like having a team mate who can aim.

To be honest, I was just a passenger but it seemed pretty easy. You have to do it every time you load in and it worked first time every time.

 

Think this is a pretty good guide. Plus it explains the things you need to do in this weeks Nightfall to stop it glitching out.

You will always need a mic for raids.

Speaking of raids and mics — has anyone got experience using/hearing the crappy ps5 built in mic?

 

Appreciate I’d need to throw on some headphones to avoid bleed but is it workable? Or so awful that I’m best to actually buy something ‘proper’?

 

Have a nice chunk of time at the weekend so thought I might try to team up with some people!

Not tried it for any serious gaming, but I regularly play online with just the in-built one, and it's just good enough. If I was raiding or similar, I'd want something more.

Thanks — good to have a sense of it. 
 

Really it’s just because, if I’m using headphones, I want to be using my decent noise cancelling ones. And don’t want to spend a fortune on a decent headset.

Thanks, this is good advice - I went to the moon (first time!) and basically completed my upgrade for Riskrunner smg that was previously on 14%...

 

That’s a great level too, really good fun.
