The champ is in the building and he has spoken. It's true that Frosty thinks everything is good because he whoops ass with everything...but him saying it's his favorite fusion means something.

He brought the receipts to prove it.

Remember Saint's eulogy for us when he was talking about this weapon never being used against Guardians ever again? Welp....
Why does everyone use Waking Vigil?

a surprisingly cool and fun build for anyone looking to add some entertainment value to Iron Banner this week.
Definitely planning to try this one out. Looks real fun. Too bad I need to do like 180 strikes to get the Eriana's Vow catalyst... the progress for that catalyst is pathetic.

Also farmed a nicely rolled Breachlight and destroyed so many people in their super, it's insane!

I don't follow streamers, but I'm going to follow this guy. He's insane and I love his commentary.

Why does everyone use Waking Vigil?
It's a really good 150rpm hand cannon. Very consistent.

150rpm hand cannons are the top tier in PvP because they can kill faster than 140's (110's aren't really relevant) as both archetypes require 3 headshots to kill, but 150's shoot faster. It's really that simple. Before now with the reintroduction of Jack Queen King 3, it was the only year 2+ 150 rpm in the energy slot. People who wanted to run a kinetic special weapon really had no choice if they wanted an energy 150 hand cannon to go with it. Plus, most of its perks are PvP related. Slideshot, opening shot, snapshot sights, and so on.

Waking Vigil also benefits from being very easy to farm via Menagerie. If you're looking to farm one, consider going for an Opening Shot + Snapshot/Slideshot roll. Jack Queen is also fine, but I find its chunky body to be off-putting as it's easier to loose your target around the frame. Waking Vigil is very thin so you see more. It matters (to me).

Has anybody found any weapon that headseeker is worth a damn on?
I have, yes. Checking through my inventory:
  • Bygones (rampage/kill clip/rangefinder + headseeker)
  • Sacred Provenance (rangefinder + headseeker)
  • Nightshade (rangefinder + headseeker)
  • Relentless (snapshot + headseeker)
  • Claws of the Wolf (rampage + headseeker)
  • Premonition (outlaw + headseeker)
  • Last Perdition (rangefinder + headseeker)
  • Adhortative (frenzy + headseeker)
  • Blast Furnace (frenzy + headseeker)
  • Right Side of Wrong (firmly planted + headseeker)
  • Traveler's Judgment (frenzy/rapid hit + headseeker)
  • Death by Scorn (full auto + headseeker)

They're all very good. Want to frustrate someone from range with a pulse? Catch them with that headseeker reliability. You'll win damn near every 1v1. It just makes sure your 2-burst and 3-bust "on paper" kills almost always hit that max ttk. It's quite beautiful, actually.

I don't follow streamers, but I'm going to follow this guy. He's insane and I love his commentary.
my man

I liked it on the Right Side of Wrong in PvP, but there's better perks.
It's really nice on weapons in which you can pair it with range finder or a damage perk. or any weapon with a meaningful recoil that might otherwise cause some body shots to register regularly in your bursts.

The only real grind in Savior is getting the Fractaline materials to level up the obelisks + the unreleased final obelisk (Empyrean Foundation). Everything else is basically "do this" + "get that"

You do have to LFG for a "Legendary" (aka 950 LL) sundial that has no matchmaking though
You have to get a million points in nightfalls right? That's worse than leveling up obelisks IMO.

My first pvp match for a while. Ran the Bastion / Waking Vigil combo and this is going to be fun.

When you see your radar light up, hip-fire pre-charge and you can melt rushers. Bastion is awesome.

One 100k a week for 10 weeks over a 14 week season, it's not a big deal. If anything the solar kills part of that quest is grindier.
Right but it's all old content and I don't even want to do one nightfall, let alone 10. There is no point in doing them aside from being a stupid requirement for the savior title.

At least with the obelisks I mentioned earlier, you were able to work towards like every new weapon of the season by upgrading them.

If you don't want to run old content how did you ever get hooked on Destiny?

The IB bounties are easier this time around, right?

Edit: They must be. In 4 matches I’m done with 1 and half done with two others.

This guy getting mad at me because I shut down his nova warp immediately with Devil’s Ruin over and over again, like bruv, what did you think was going to happen when you’re using that goofy ass super.

If I buy the season pass now will I still be able to reach rank 100 without excessive grinding? Also how much of a time sink is the obelisk stuff?

That's like 5-6 master nightfalls which aren't really hard these days when everyone is 970+.

Pretty easily done by playing like 15-20 hours a week.

If you want to smash through your Season pass thing, just go to drifter and banshee and stock up on their bounties and rinse it.
