Destiny Armsday 3/16/16 Guide: Fantastic Stock, Terrible Rolls

Destiny Armsday Guide

 

It’s Armsday, Guardians! If you don’t already have packages you’re waiting to cash in, then you are absolutely in luck this week.

Banshee has resupplied for the week with what is probably the best stock he has had at one time yet. In fact, I don’t think he could have a better stock, especially if you enjoy PVP.

So with that said, here’s what is available from Banshee this week:


New Weapon Stock

Hakke Arminius-D – Auto Rifle

Omolon Uffern HC4 – Hand Cannon

Suros DIS-47 – Scout Rifle

Hakke Lyudmila-D – Pulse Rifle

Suros PDX-45 – Pulse Rifle

Patriot’s Point: I already have three packages that I’m holding on to, and much like this week’s stock they’re all primaries. One is the Arminius-D, and one is the Uffern. If you don’t have either of those already then get them (you can probably skip Arminius if you have a Doctrine of Passing). The DIS-47 is fanstatic as a high ROF, low impact scout rifle. You want as much stability as you can get and full auto on it. The Lyudmila-D isn’t bad, but I just don’t care for Hakke pulse rifles, so if you’re in the market for a pulse, definitely get the Suros PDX-45. I got mine from a reward package the first month of The Taken King with Perfect Balance, Counter Balance, and a range booster (the Armsday package for one was very similar just a couple of weeks ago). It’s an absolute laser beam and I’d say the best pulse rifle in the game.

Patriot’s Point: I decided to go ahead and cash in my Cocytus for roll 3. It’s not a good roll for PVP, but for PVE it’s decent enough. I’ll just give it to my Titan. It’s no Dead Orbit Hung Jury, and the magazine size of 12 certainly does it no favors, but sometimes you just want to roll with a different weapon instead of always using the same thing.

We’ll see what comes next week. Maybe we can get a Luck in the Chamber/Icarus (or Third Eye) Uffern then, because the rolls on it this week were hot garbage.
