Season 5 will finally bring weapons for PvE and Gambit players to grind for.
If you’ve been on the grind for Redrix’s Claymore and Luna’s Howl (never mind the Not Forgotten) in Destiny 2, you’ve probably grown weary of the Competitive experience. However, if you don’t play PvP at all, then you’ll still have something to grind for. Bungie has announced that Season 5, which starts on November 27th, will introduce Pinnacle weapons for Gambit and Vanguard Strikes.
The Vanguard Pinnacle weapon is called Loaded Question, and it’s a high impact fusion rifle with Arc element. Its unique perk is “Reservoir Burst” which deals additional damage and causes enemies to explode when killed if the battery (aka magazine) is full. The steps for the quest are detailed below, and reward a fully Masterworked Loaded Question:
Gambit players get the Breakneck, a precision Kinetic auto rifle with “Onslaught”. This unique perk will increase the weapon’s rate of fire, as the Rampage perk is stacked. Since Gambit is about killing swathes of enemies quickly, this should work nicely. The steps for earning a fully Masterworked Breakneck are:
Finally, for those destined (get it?) to play PvP forever, there’s The Mountaintop. This lightweight Kinetic grenade launcher, which has “Micro-Missile”, fires in a straight line and has “massively increased projectile speed.” Projectiles will also instantly detonate instead of bouncing around. Check out the quest steps below.
