As we all know, with RoI, came a slue of new weapons. As I am a Scout Rifle collector, I am excited about the possibilities of the new Legendary Scouts that are available to us in RoI.
Due to limited space in my vault, I had to dismantle many of the older Scouts that I had been collecting as I never used them. I was saddened by this process. But I got new toys.
So far, I have not had to purchase any of the new Scouts. I have received them all through rewards or Faction packages.
The first SRs I got were the FWC The Wounded. I have two of these. One with Firefly, Quickdraw and Perfect Balance. The second has Zen Moment, Full Auto and Hammer Forged. This SR is in the same archetype as the Hung Jury. I really have no complaints about this rifle except that firing it makes me feel like I'm shooting a squirt gun. It's a decent rifle, but I put it away in lieu of my Hung Jury. I still feel the HJ is stronger for some reason.
The next is Cryptic Dragon. This can be obtained through Crucible rewards. This is also in the same archetype as the HJ. I had three of these. I dismantled two and kept the one with Triple Tap, Third Eye and Injection mold. I'm very happy with this, but I don't have it fully upgraded yet and keep switching to HJ when I'm doing PvE, Archon's Forge. The zoom on the scope I'm using is a little to much for the close in attacks. I need to play around with the scopes more to settle in on what seems best for my playstyle.
Earlier this week, I got the Angel's Advocate from a Vanguard package. This is in the archetype as the MIDA. My perks are Return to sender, Eye of the Storm and Hammer forged. I love this gun as I am used to the MIDA, but it only has a magazine of 14. Quite a dramatic drop from the 21 I'm used to with MIDA.
Last night I ranked up my Dead Orbit and received the Keystone 01. The notable perks are Firefly and Third eye. it has a magazine size of 16. This is in the same archetype as the Saterine Rapier/Colovances Duty. I played with this for a while and I am impressed with it. It's not ranked up yet, but it hits like a tank in PvE. I hope to play with it more this weekend.
I'm not sure if there any other new Legendary SR. but so far, I'm liking what has been offered in RoI. Many different options to choose from. As I get used to them, I'm sure I'll make a final decision whether to stay from my MIDA / HJ or not.
