Now that we’ve got our first Faction Rally winner in Destiny 2, it’s time to seek out out if the weapon on supply is definitely worth the Glimmer.
If you’ve been studying our Destiny 2 guide, you’ll know that each time a Faction Rally occasion ends, the winner faction will get to place a weapon on sale. Dead Orbit members get it for 1,000 Glimmer, whereas everybody else has to pay 50,000. In this case, the weapon the Haunted Earth scout rifle.
Which begs the query, for individuals who will not be Dead Orbit associates, is Haunted Earth truly price 50,000 Glimmer? In the video beneath, Arekkz explores the strengths and weaknesses of Haunted Earth.
Haunted Earth relies on the Call to Serve scout rifle platform, one of many top PvE Legendary weapons in Destiny 2. However, not like Call to Serve, the distinctive trait right here is Field Prep, which will increase the quantity of ammo you’ll be able to carry for Haunted Earth, and ups the reload pace when crouched.
This, coupled with the intrinsic perk (see beneath) means the weapon is most threatening when fired from a crouched place. The reload pace improve is nothing to scoff at, both.
The intrinsic perk is High-Impact Frame, which implies a slower rate-of-fire and a better harm. Aiming down sights and staying nonetheless whereas firing additionally will increase accuracy.
Your choices for sights are:
- IS 5 Circle: significantly will increase dealing with pace
- Model 6 Loop: will increase vary, will increase dealing with pace
And for magazines, you’ll be able to choose from:
- Tactical Mag: barely will increase stability, will increase reload pace, barely will increase journal dimension
- High-Caliber Rounds: shorts trigger knock again, barely will increase vary
Unfortunately, for all of its advantages, the weapon will not be definitely worth the asking worth. Considering you could have an incredible substitute in Call to Serve, which beats it within the rate-of-fire, journal dimension, and dealing with, it’s not a really engaging possibility. Even once you evaluate it to different prime scout rifles like Nameless Midnight, it nonetheless loses, regardless of its nice influence.
