Exotic Weapon Bounty
« on: September 22, 2014, 09:28:39 AM »
So over the weekend I was lucky enough to get an Exotic Weapon Bounty off the Bounty Bot.

I had a choice of "A Light in the Dark", "Tolands Legacy", and "A Dubious Task".

Knowing what they all give out, Tolands gives an exotic Pulse rifle, Dubious gives a shotgun, and Light in Dark gives the hand cannon 'Thorn', I went with a Light in the Dark.

to start with it was pretty simple:
Go to the summoning pits strike and kill a certain boss.
then.
Kill 500 Hive, also quite easy,

next up I have to get the 500 points in the Crucible using void damage. since I only have a Sniper and heavy machine gun I am having trouble with this as it's 5 points for a kill with void, and minus 2 for a death, any death. I am in the market for a Void damage shotgun or Fusion rifle. So until I find or buy one of those I'm a bit stalled as I might get a few kills per game the deaths slowly whittle it back down.

after this comes the tricky part. A level 26 Summoning Pits strike appears and you have to grind all the way to Phogoth. but not kill him. you have to kill his minions for a few waves until a special target appears and kill that target, and then you will get access to Thorn.

So once I get through the 500 crucible crap I'll be recruiting for the level 26 strike.

Anyone else have this Bounty, or either of the others?

ummmmm this is a massive task!

Is the how destiny will last 10 years? I doubt I'll ever get close to lvl 26 but would be keen to watch whoever you get to do this with. Perhaps twitch it if your connection allows?

Yeah I should be able to stream this. will let you know.

I believe Jykel also has this bounty and is up to the last bit.

one thing that kinda sux is that if I where playing a Warlock I'd be able to smash out the crucible part fairly easy. but as a hunter, none of my supers/ abilities use void, so I have to do it the hard way

Being a warlock didn't make much difference Moose.   Void Fusion Rifle is the way to do it, and you need to be running a positive K/D, as the minus 2 from the deaths is a killer.

I was sitting on like 30 of 500 or below for a while til I figured out Void weapons are the key, then I got that 500 in an afternoon (maybe 7 or 8 games).   

Take your time, then next phase of the bounty is near impossible.  If you thought the Hallowed Wizards on the weekly strike were tough, the bounty strike has them super shielded and more aggressive!

I chose that bounty aswell as I wanted the hand cannon over the pulse rifle and shotgun.

I'm up to the 500 crucible points with void damage. I don't have a gun that does void damage so I'm pretty screwed.

Given the crucible does weapon n level balancing, even a crappy green void fusion rifle will do the job.  I found the shotgun or sniper not as good for my style, couldn't keep my k/d positive.

I started with a low level green one before I finally got a decent rare one, just don't use it in PvE ;)

That's me out. No way I'd get 500 points. My kdr is far below positive.

Already tried the fusion rifle, terrible. By the time it charges up, I'm dead  >:(

glad I am not the only one that doesn't like the fusion rifle.   took me a while to get the duck behind cover, charge, come out shooting.  that or just follow others and steal their kills ;)

Hot damn!! Just got me the Thorn hand cannon last night.

I really hated doing the 500 crucible points. When everyone is blitzing autos and you have to wait for the damn charge cycle on a fusion. Even tho I got one with a fast charge, I almost had to run around constantly half charging to get some quick shots off.

That last part of the bounty was crazy!! Now I know why they call him "the unwed", a complete psycho!!


Happy to help anyone else with any bounties too.
