Sounds like a great update, I know many people have stopped playing destiny. Even I admit it can get very repetative, but like titanfall even animal crossing it still leaves you wanting more. For me it's still the best game for playing co-op with pals. I sold my fifa 15 yesterday as kick off glitch ruined the game.

I got an exotic bounty at the weekend but they involve crucible stuff which I suck at and the bounty I choose kind means I need to be fairly good at it as well. Shame you cant get PVE specific ones and PVP ones.

I got lucky and have had all the exotic bounties, you do get one that is PVE only which is for the machine gun. The multiplayer ones aren't too bad but it is a bit of a grind. I had a good run the other day and got 4 legendary engrams over the weekend with one being an exotic shotgun which is used as a primary weapon called Universal remote which is pretty cool. I have started levelling up a Titan but I still prefer the Warlock.

What did you have to do for yours Jay mine started of doing the summoning pits strike then killing hive on moon now. I have to get 500 points in crucible using void damage so have to use special weapons to get kills so makes crucible no fun. Read the last bit was going to be kill Xyor the Unwed which would of been interesting as not done that yet.

Xyor the unwed is quite difficult it is a lvl 26 summoning pit strike you have to do but wait at the end for him to come. Everything is given the epic buff as well so they all have strong shields. For the void damage it helped being a warlock but I did use a void damage fusion rifle as well which made it easier. You know which weapon you are getting right?

Yeah getting the Thorn hand Cannon if I bother to complete it. I am a warlock if I change back to Voidwalker will any kills made by grenades specials and melees count towards score? So Xyor can only be done on level 26 strike?

Yeah it is a special strike that only opens up when you have the mission. Yeah any of they kills will count which is useful, especially with the super. It is a pretty good hand cannon and they have said they are going to make it stronger which is good.

I haven't played on this game at all since Shadow of Mordor came out. Can't say I've missed it really. I will go back to it eventually though. Last time I was on, I was working towards 2 exotic bounties.

It is just the same strike again, also if no one else has the bounty they get bugger all. I will say to you though if you find any blue rarity fusion rifles keep them for the pocket infinity bounty as that is a great weapon.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
