If you accept Destiny for what it is, how can you possibly call it a colossal disappointment?
I consider myself in that category and while I really do love the game, I'm finding that to succeed in pvp you need to have a legendary or better auto rifle, anything less and you'll lose alot of head to head matchups... of course, some might disagree.. I'm still using the strangers pulse rile and having moderate success, but I'm on the hunt or an exotic or legendary auto rifle, to really give me an edge... hopefully I'll have enough strange coins when Xur puts an auto rifle up for grabs... either that, or I'm going for one of the legendary rifles that the crucible weapons seller sells once I hit crucible rep 3 (which should be today or tomorrow, although I hit my crucible money limit and won't start getting more til tommorow, but will only have 105, so I'll have to wait til next week to get the 150 that it costs) I also got my first exotic bounty or an exotic weapon, but from what I've read online, it gives you an exotic shotgun and doesn't seem to be worth all the work I'll need to put in to get it... Overall, I'm enjoying this game alot and would say that I love it... with some more TLC from Bungie, the game will only get better!
in regards to the exotic bounty, it depends on which one you choose to do. Usually you should get a choice between 3 exotic bounties to complete, each one resulting in a different weapon. Yes there is a bounty for an exotic shotgun, but only if you chose that specific bounty.
Yeah, I knew that before - hand, but I wish that the game would let you know which exotic weapon you're getting... especially since it's crazy amount of work to get it... guess that's what the internet is for. from what I've seen, there aren't any exotic bounties or an exotic auto rifle... yet. I've already obtained an exotic pulse rile, but I have no desire to use it, I tried it in PVP and it wasn't the greatest... Like I said beore, you really need an automatic weapon to get kills, or be extremely skilled (which I'm not...LOL).
well double check the pulse rifle bonuses, because some of them let you fire the pulse rifle in fully automatic mode, which might help you. I would kill for an exotic weapon, need 3 more strange coins, so by this upcoming weekend I will buy one if Xur is selling either an auto rifle, sniper rifle, hand cannon or pulse rifle. Looking forward to getting an exotic bounty.
I am a hardcore shooter fan. I guess if you consider that I traded it in once I leveled to 20 and less than a week later, that I loved the game, then okay haha. Guy has to be a PlayStation shooter fan lol, I had much better gaming experiences in Halo 1,2,3,4, Reach, and ODST.
got a bit better for me after switching to auto rifle, winning more shootouts now
I love shooters and have not played it at all so I don't know if I like it when it is $10 I will let you know fantastic generalisation though. But the amount of articles are certainly making me sick of it before I get to play lol.
I guess I'm not hardcore. I love online shooters, but Destiny bored me to death sadly.
30fps sucks with first person shooters.
Guess im not hardcore (looks over at my shooter games) cause destiny sucks. Everyone I know has said the same thing and have decided to wait for CoD (god know why) or are waiting for Halo MCC.
I was so close to hating destiny the first couple of days of playing it. I really thought it was a disappointment, with limited mission options. But somehow during the course of the game, the co-op with friends made it interesting. Now I'm hooked. The endgame, while limited, works fantastic for a person like me who can only enjoy playing games a few hours a night. You can farm, do strikes, crucible, whatever you feel like doing at your own pace. The level cap works great, you dont have to feel like you need to keep up with the people who play this game 24/7. Its very enjoyable once you accept the game for what it offers and not what you had anticipated.
Well it's my favourite genre and while the shooting feels great, the rest seemed to fall a bit short in the beta. Never bothered with the full version.
FPS is by far my favorite genre, and I have little interest in Destiny. The PvP is awful. And while the shooting mechanics are solid, the bullet sponge enemy progression is disappointing, especially when you consider how good Bungie has been with design over the years.
the title is just absurd, what a mind fuk job this title is....So the author knows and has talked to every single Hardcore shooter fan with a PS3, PS4, Xbox360, or Xbox One? Just Insane. smh
I would disagree with this guy. So he's wrong.
Hardcore shooter fans don't like farming.
I am a huge fan of shooters but I dont love Destiny. I enjoy it due to the drive of getting better gear (kind of losing interest though) and it can be a fun time with friends but I dont know it just feels like a good example of the crap state of the game industry where DLC is required to get the full experience (one of the worset examples IMO) and lazy game design is accepted.
