Are people making a noble sacrifice by avoiding Fusions to use the inferior but more balanced shotgun? Every meta is dominated by weapons that hit a critical benchmark of 1) consistency in performance and 2) ease of use.
If a weapon has high potential but too cumbersome to wield, it's not meta. The weapons that are meta are the best combinations of those traits, being not too difficult while performing well.
But they DO annoy, because most players don't expect them right now, and tend to assume you have a shotgun or sniper so when they die to a special weapon far outside shotgun range that didn't require a headshot, they go REFEREE and teabag and whine online and spread their salty tears everywhere. The people that teabag me for daring to use an Rental always are rocking meta weapons like Gnawing Hunger and a shotgun or Dire Promise and Winters.
Most of you have probably watched all the different guides, but most just say vary your loadout to cover shields and just show a bit of gameplay. As soon as you do a bit of damage to the boss, he will teleport to where you drop in (Front) and spawn the first big Servitor in the back.
First big Servitor (Back) spawns with Void Shanks. Groups of Arc Shanks will spawn a couple of times on the left and right side of the room until enough damage is done to the boss and a Spider tank will spawn on the left and right side of the back of the room.
Hide in a corner near the wall or on top of some grating(out of sight of the tank directly in front of you) shoot the tank in the opposite corner of the room. One teammate can focus on the invisible guys that will rush you if you stay on the floor (only a few of them spawn with the tanks, but they are close to the entrance and will try to rush you) Once the two Tanks are dead you can focus on the boss.
I found it easier to focus on the boss and deal with those ads after. Most guides say that middle set of ads spawn again when the boss dies, but I didn’t get them a few times.
Either way once that boss goes down shoot anything that moves until that timer stops, and you see a Skiff pull up. Whisper also makes quick work of the Big Servitors.
Just remember to shoot somewhat slow paced because they will disappear and reappear after 2-3 CRT shots and could screw your White Nail. Once you kill the Shanks that spawn with the Servitors you only need to deal with Arc shields.
I've been running Ablest to deal with shanks, inaugural address, and hammerhead. With a full team of 690+ players, we were able to take it down relatively easily, although we wouldn’t recommend trying it until you’re 680 or higher.
When you take down the final boss, you’ll earn Outbreak Perfected. We recommend at least one member of your team take Ablest with you, as it makes quick work of the shielded Fallen.
Your other slots should encompass all elements to deal with other enemy shields. In all of these combat sections, you need to kill every enemy or the door won’t open.
Clear the enemies with your Fire team, and move through the sweeper bot hallway. You’ll find yourself in the courtyard, which houses Shanks of varying size and power.
Bungee via Polygon Continue along the path of the old tower until you reach the flaming scaffolding where you first started Destiny 2. Slide under the big door next to the M and drop the elevator shaft.
Carefully jump into the yellow alcoves on either side of the area. When you reach the dark wall with what looks like an air conditioner attached, grab a ledge and start jumping up.
When you reach the top, run forward and enter the open hatch. Start by hanging left, and then quickly pull to the right as you’re falling.
At the end, jump and use your momentum to fling you to the safe space. Now climb the pipes on the left and right of the hallway until you reach the small landing.
The white lines represent hallways you can walk through, with the red arrows denoting switches you need to hit. You start the map in the center of the bottom-most rectangle’s southern white line.
When you’ve had a good look at the map, turn around and drop two floors of vents. We recommend sending one player right and another left, just to speed the process up.
There are some alcoves to hide in, so it can pass, but just to your left you should see a giant cavern with pipes in it. You can tell if the shredder is chasing you by its sound or giant red light.
Bungee via Polygon With the machine gone, jump back over to your hallway and take a left. Go hit the switch like last time and return to your normal hallway.
Hit the button and wait for them to slowly lift you into the rafters. Jump to slow your momentum, or risk death by splattering against a wall.
You need to walk on the white path very carefully and in a specific order. Bungee via Polygon To make this easier to read, we’re going to label each space like a grid.
Void path Unknown Destiny community member via Discord The first number is the row (one through six) and the second is the space you need to walk on (left to right). You’ll start on the second white tile from the left, on the first row (1-2).
Arc path Unknown Destiny community member via Discord The first number is the row (one through six) and the second is the space you need to walk on (left to right). You’ll start on the fifth white tile from the left, on the first row (1-5).
Bungee If you have friends behind you, take a left after the survive the burning room. This will shut off the panels in the room you just got through, making it easier to get allies through.
The shielded Shanks that Sirius summons deal very high damage. Sirius will spawn a Servitor, surrounded by shielded Shanks.
If you have a Void weapon like Hammerhead, you can quickly focus on one shank, and the shield explosion will kill them all. Turn your attention back to Sirius, and hit him until he spawns another Servitor grouping.
When Sirius is down to two-thirds health, he’ll teleport back to the main area and summon two Walkers on the old turret platforms. When Sirius falls, turn your attention to the rest of the enemies in the room.
If you manage to kill every enemy in the arena before time runs out, Mithra will pop back up on the center platform. Bungee via Polygon Now you’ve got the Outbreak Perfected Catalyst.
You’ll need to come back and complete the Heroic mode again every week until you get 500 SIVA Particulates. The Catalyst grants Outbreak Perfected another perk, which we don’t have a name for yet.
