Perfectly fine, nothing bad about fixing this. I tried it with my group the other day and we couldn't even do it right so we just went back to the proper way hahaha. It's so easy to beat him regularly now that you just may as well do it.

Sure as hell ain't easy on hard.

TheSaint1518d ago

Someone did it in seventeen seconds on hard.

My group did it this morning on hard.. took us about 2 hours to finally get him positioned right to knock him off... He was hanging off the ledge and I threw a hail mary pulse grenade with my Titan and it knocked him off!!!!

Got a legendary sparrow and a raid helmet... my buddy got the (recently nerfed) mythoclast.

i used to do that in dark sous and make the spirit guys in the woods fall off the side and get massive souls.

I think in hard mode, normal mode no. My friend made a good point about this, if I can fall off. Well so should the boss, an it does take some team work to do it.

The Templar is the one thats super easy.

That is some of the most piss poor excuse to using a bug and exploit to your advantage I have ever heard.

Trash people are usually the ones that can't do things legit

Bungie is just covering there selfs for some reason. Its not a bug. No where does the game break at that moment. It does what its attended. Everyone dies if they get knocked off the edge. Its just a level design they didn't think about that would happen. It could be considered a exploit but I don't think so. Its just a strategy to take him out.

And I think its funny how so many get but hurt when they do the cheese way. Its like it effects peoples lives for some reason. Play how you want to play the game and others play how they want to play it.

This is a bug. If Bungie says it's a bug, then it's a bug. They develop this game. Not you.

I have yet to do a raid, but let me ask you this:

If you were fighting Jackie Chan one and one, if he was kicking your butt, if you had the opportunity to knock him of the ledge, wouldn't you? I mean, it's a cliff with a drop, things die off cliffs.

Takes 0 Teamwork, Atheon requires 1 Warlock with 2 grenades.

OmegaShen1518d ago

Don't know about that, people do the portals to get the damage/super to get him to fall off. Doing solo takes more time.

i thought it was just funny to do... i would normally do it an extra time with some other friends who hadnt done it yet just for shits and gigs... plus it was kind of nice to see the boss getting cunt stuffed by gravity when normally its the other way around.... that jump room before the gorgons used to be the bane of my existence, i hate jumping in games... leave to bungie to take out something else i enjoyed in destiny... no wonder i only play it once a week now :/ that being said, back to the borderlands i go :D

Jonny5isalive1518d ago

man, they are taking out all the cool stuff before I get a ps4 to play it.

Nik_P7571518d ago

there will still be plenty of cool stuff for you to explore! It's a fun game but filled with bugs. Enjoy when you get it!!

Nik_P7571518d ago

Normal or hard, he's incredibly easy. Patch and make me spend an extra 10 minutes of my time....Hopefully the next raid is a challenge.
