    well.... you can switch weapons mid-fight... but you either lose most of or all the ammo for that weapon class.

    Mid-match you can adjust your load out, but not while having an intense duel with someone, being tied to two weapons during battle just feels alien to me, even though it's the norm these days for most shooters, im just stuck in the past it seems :D

    Well... everyone is kinda striving for realism. Hard to do that when your character is essentially a walking armory.

    You have three weapons lol! And learning the spawn points and times for the heavy weapons is essentially as in UT/Quake.

    My bad, always forget about the heavy weapons :D

    Let's face it though we're comparing apples to oranges, Destiny is a great PvP game and I've enjoyed it more than other recent shooters, but can I see myself playing it in ten years time? Probably not.

    Thank god they're making a new UT to satisfy my PvP needs.

    After the last UT.... i'm not getting my hopes up. Got bored of it incredibly fast. The only saving grace for me in any UT game is the "shield cannon" as it's called.... or as i call it. I've already won TDM matches with the highest score on the team with that freakin thing. But the CTF was ruined by the vehicles.... namely when people would grab the flag, hop on their hoverboard, and hitch a ride with one of the flying vehicles right to the capture point.

    Oh how I miss the original UT. I remember getting the demo on a PC Gamer magazine disk. Hadn't even much heard of UT, but I was absolutely blown away. Even more literally blown away in multiplayer. I always sucked terrible at it, but it was and still is the most memorable game I've ever played. Destiny is no UT, but it kinda scratches the itch just a little. I wish they would put CTF in the game though.

    UT3 was horrible, I barely touched it myself, I'm playing the pre alpha of the new UT and it's coming quite nicely so far.

    But anyway starting get back into playing Destiny, new missions and weapons etc have got me interested again.

    I hope parts of the game can be played without friends and just search for players so everyone can play in the next patch.

    There are only three things that you need friends for – raids, weekly heroics and weekly nightfalls. Though these are the most rewarding and important lol.

    That said I still need to do the weeklies with two characters so if you and Ghosty are available tonight we can team up.

    OK, I’ll be online in about 2h. Arc weapons are highly recommended.

    BTW as I noticed yesterday that boodkin was confused about elemental damage, as was I for some time, here is a link that explains it for anyone that is interested:

    Lol! The bounty that requires you to do 25 strikes is the one that gives the Bad Juju pulse rifle. You can use it with any character. Personally I don’t like it.

    The one you got from Xur is the No Land Beyond. It is without a doubt the worst exotic weapon in the game. I got it last time he was selling it and gave up after 5mins of using it. Keeping in the vault if they decide to buff/fix one day.

    Last time I decided to go to the Crucible drunk. That didn't went as well, as imagined it at the time..

    From what i hear, No Land Beyond is a horrible PvE weapon, but not so bad as a PvP weapon.

    Well it may very well be a good PvP weapon if you can do headshots all the time. That reload after every shot I so long, that you are as good as dead if you miss.

    I have been using the Thorn in PvP and I love it. I really want the Hawkmoon. Hope to get lucky someday. Yesterday I went to the Crusible and in the end of the first game the guy in front of me got one. Jelly….

    Some PvP clips with the Thorn

    I hate that i have YET to EVER get an exotic weapon bounty in the game.... EVER. I REALLY want Thorn. Probably because i don't do bounties enough... mostly because a lot of the bounties involve doing stuff that seems to tend to require stuff that i can't do. Like, for instance, killing 5+ guardians in the Crucible without getting killed.
