I can’t believe one of the steps for the sniper is completing a rare bounty. Whoever made these quests in BA should never be allowed near them again.

I know I complain a shitton, but one thing I'm going to add to that pile is they need to go ahead and change how you get the powerful frames finished. All the steps are fine, but having to go to the tower to talk to ada to then go to the forge to start it is kinda blah. Why must we have to sit through 3 loading screens to start finally getting the gun.

Doesn't help Borgosia or whatever is like 5 miles from the nearest spawn...geez.

Also it's no joke at least at first.

Got my Nagi Zagi. Just killed a lost sector boss in one shot. TO THE PVP.

You only get an emblem and triumph for completing the datapad
Is it a cool emblem at least?

Hilarious that that is the final secret. I know the real reward is the sniper, but the talking trash can built that shit up with her dialogue.

Didn't get the Jotunn, but only did one frame. Bergusia is available to all characters at least, so I can take all my other characters there to do their frames instead

For the Datapad, you need to have all black armory armor & weapons (probably why shes now selling the forge polymer) to complete it - along with izanagi's burden sniper.
 
For those waiting for the Aztecross word, he wasted no time:


It’s beautiful. This looks like the Last Word of snipers. That fat reticle *French chef finger kiss*

The exotics & raid are kind of redeeming Black Armory for me.

I’ve not had as much fun in PVP then I am right now. This sniper is amazing. I can’t shut the fuck up about it.

I’ve never had more fun in PVP until using this weapon. It’s amazing.

Has fantastic stability as well. Killed many a shotgun rusher with it.

“Its exotic perk is it’s usable in PvP.” Sounds like it might become the first sniper to be an actual part of the meta. (Shout outs to Borealis tho).

for those that don't want to input codes into leviathan you can run all the way to castellum, punch the locked door that leads to baths (first door on the left), then run back out to the entrance of leviathan,

as soon as you get out the main door walk right and jump into the pool of water. you'll spawn in the underbelly

Could we have this in video form?

This is par for the course since Forsaken: access to dreaming city required the ether event, unlocking the forges required public events, triumphs require rng items..they are padding the content, nothing new to Destiny as a whole, remember the original Sleeper Simulant quest in D1

oh lawd i made the mistake of putting back on my swift ride with mid zoom scope...

it's so good *cries*

with rampage it two taps all day long. and more range than blast furnace with a short scope.

i think the punch was a needless step iirc. it's just run in that triggers this.

though i've never done it i recall the discussion.
 
So... With the TLW still to come, is BA still the worst thing ever made by human hands?
Honestly, BA has been one of my favorite periods of Destiny after a retail release in the franchises history. Yes, it does have its downsides, but so much of them can be attributed to growing pains. All in all, a lot of lessons they learned from prior expansion/content deployments were applied here to great effect

>Not owning the AP only resulted in you being unable to equip BA-labelled gear or enter the new raid. The new holiday event was available to all players.
>All players got to enjoy the Light level bump, even though they didn't own the AP, resulting in a much less split playerbase than earlier attempts at releasing major content throughout the year.
>Almost all of the content BA added was, in a way, to reinvigorate the meta-gameplay loops that are the endgame of Forsaken.
> Some of the guns introduced in BA are incredible, from Hammerhead to Blast Furnace, and now from Jouten to Izanagi's Burden.
> They added new mods as a part of BA, and the mods are actually really solid additions to the weapon mod pool.

A traditional campaign would've simply been a waste - the campaign stuff from CoO or any of the D1 Y1 expansion campaigns were all ass. In fact, the only campaign I found compelling from a player engagement point of view was what they did in Forsaken, which seems to be a direction they want to continue developing in because even though BA didn't have a traditional campaign or story, there was a story in it that players could discover.

I'm still deeply sad/disappointed that they unlocked the forge early. Niobe's Torment needs a few tweaks (honestly just checkpoints really) and it would have been fine.

I liked BA quite a bit, it felt like nice mix of casual and hardcore. I'm quite casual, play maybe an hour a day maybe 2 and got everything except the raid weapons (and the new forge obviously) . On top of the season changes and pinical weapons and the winter event I think it's been a great time to just switch off and listen to podcasts and play.

Outside of a throw away 1 to 2 hour compaign being missing I don't have to many complaints. It feels about on par with Coo but with foundation of forsaken to make it better. Which is about what I expected. For the price I'm happy with my annual pass purchase if by the end, after bungie adapts, it more of this but better.

I can see my self enjoying the annual pass content more then vanilla d2 season pass.

A lot of people still unable to reconcile the instant gratification they got with the past dlc systems.

Nice posts, completely agree. For me BA has been the perfect complement to coming off the back of Forsaken.

You could be me and have the Super Charged rare bounty which requires you to complete 50 rounds of forge.
Got this one too. Currently at ... 16/50 iirc.
Which, is great. Because now, all my spare time I have to game will be me in the Forge.
After that, wonder around in the Shattered Throne ... because that will close next reset.


Anyway, Bergusia Forge is here. Shame it renders the other 3 Forges completly useless. Because you can now Forge a Frame (any frame) in it...

During a run of stupid decisions from Bungie, this rare bounty one is possibly the worst. I've never even seen one, let alone finish it - let alone save it for this bullshit. That's the stage I'm at of my content progression, and now... What, I grind? Glad I have an infinite amount of time oh no wait.

Uh I got this stupid bug on my Warlock again where my other two powerful frames disappeared from Ada's inventory after I completed my first. That's one less chance at Jotunn. Bungie really needs to fix that shit.

Got my Nagi Zagi. Just killed a lost sector boss in one shot. TO THE PVP.



Is it a cool emblem at least?

Hilarious that that is the final secret. I know the real reward is the sniper, but the talking trash can built that shit up with her dialogue.
Yea I think it's pretty cool looking.

The on boarding for Black Armory wasn't great. I got to 560-ish and stopped playing Forsaken. Black Armory dropped, I picked up the game again, and I finally reached 609 this week which should be enough to do the first forge. I tried 4 times to play it and only got 2 other players the last attempt. People just aren't playing the first forge anymore, which means I likely never will get past any BA stuff. Back to grinding the same old stuff like flashpoints and Petra weeklies. :/

I definitely think Bungie needs to do something about that rare bounty requirement. If you're not lucky then you're potentially gated for 3 weeks to get the Izanagi's Burden as the Shattered Throne step comes after having to turn in a rare bounty. Bungie should've never tied an RNG bounty and a timed activity behind this quest. I saved a rare bounty I had, but I know not everybody did that.

Bungie has the worst quest design - requiring a rare bounty was a horrible decision.

FWIW, Reddit is reporting that rare bounties can be farmed from the Bergusia Forge. So with the last Forge now open it’s not as hard to get a rare bounty as it used to be.
