It was a slog, but I finally got to Legend yesterday.  I have the Not Forgotten.

I know you're going for the "I did it" moments.  Which is what I was doing when I completed the NF stuff.   I know it will be sunseted next season (3 months from now) but I wanted to complete it.

 

But I don't even use Recluse anymore.  Get a well rolled Gnawing Hunter.  It'll out do Recluse any day in PvE and many PvP engagements. Once Recluse it sunset, I doubt I'll ever bring it out of retirement.

I already have 3  good Gnawing Hungers ! If I get the Recluse great , if I don't no big deal ! I never really was much of an SMG user ,  a little too jumpy for me !

I hated Recluse in PvP.  It was too something.   I was rarely in the sweet spot for the gun.  But there was a few times I was shredding with it.  But it was the range that did it for me.  It is a great gun for PvE add clears. However, Gnawing Hunger is just as good and you have much more range.

Congrats!

 

Yes.  It is a fantastic rifle.  And yes, it sucks it's going to be sunset.  Hopefully there will be something else just as good to grind for.

You can do it!!!

 

It's a fun weapon.  But I'm done with it.  Have you got the mountaintop yet?

No , no mountaintop for me IMO those grenade launchers are useless (even though I get my ass handed to me from them in the Crucible ) !! You shoot a grenade and instead of hitting the target it bounces all over the place and doesn't do shit !! Not my type of weapon , just like all the raid mechanics aren't the type of things I like either , probably why I'm liking the Crucible more these days I just want to shoot stuff !!

Yes, normal grenade launchers have and arc in their trajectory and you have to figure out where to explode them.

 

What is fantastic about the Mountaintop is that it shoots straight, no arc.  It explodes on impact, no bouncing.  

 

I had to pull it out in comp yesterday to counter a fusion rifle guy.  He was really good with it.  I needed a one hit kill weapon with range.

I'm not good with a sniper.  I can't run, stop and snipe very well.  I would have to hard scope and 6v6 is too hectic to do so. I've tried my hand in Comp with sniper and have done moderately okay.  But when you're playing with people who are trying to increase their Glory score, I try not to "experiment".  But if we're just playing for LOLs I have tried when I deemed necessary.  I got two headshots.
