    @latenitedelight Not sure I ever had that one. I delayed getting Div 2 for a bit, so maybe that's why?

    There's supposed to be a special version of Sweet Dreams that has a similar name that I don't have either. I thought I looked it up once and it was another grindfest like Ridgeway that I didn't want to repeat, so I didn't. Is that one still around?

    BtW, besides the obvious melee benefit, I think SD is one of the most powerful shotguns in t he game in terms of pure shooting damage. The fire rate is slow, and of course reload is glacial, but Ninja pads cures the latter.

    @sock_monkey yeah, it got reworked with Gear 2.0, like the rest of the Exotics. The "special" version is just a skin, Lullaby - I think it was a pre-order reward?

    Last night i finished optimizing my MPX, it was really badly rolled as i have never had a decent one drop so it took ages to optimize.....well atleast i can change the talent as and when i want to:

    @oatiecrumble

    Looking good. I don’t want to know how quickly you optimized that… it would likely frustrate me 😉

    ps. I’m sure the ACOG is just for some added reach, but looks a bit odd on an SMG 🙂

    I spent some time tonight doing the Gaurdian Season Event… with an SMG (Vector in my case) and wow, how satisfying is it when you kill the Gaurdian and your RoF goes supersonic and your TTK drops like a sack of hammers. 😁

    @oatiecrumble Lucky. I did have one drop last weekend, but it was purple. 😞

    Have never seen a gold one that I'm aware of...

    I got like 4 or 5 of them over the last few days. The offer to farm together stands (if we can match the hours).

    @Virtual-Chris

    This event is fun. For some reason I don't recall the higher RoF and the guardians explosion from the previous one... Did they change it? Feels more like the Golden Bullet now. I have memories of not being very into it before.

    @adrian-11 As I just started playing this game earlier this year, it is the first time doing the event so I have no idea if they changed it, but it is a fun one. Much better than some of the other events they've had.

    We had it at the end of May this year... Lots of complaining at the time (see the links below, if you care).
    It might be that my game improved so much since then that now feels fun?! I doubt it.
    Also, no complaining so far from anyone...

    It definitely had the high guardian buff last time it came around (in May, as you said - if you click the first link in your recent post and scroll down a bit you'll see the comments about how it's beome more like Golden Bullet) - prior to that though, the buff was a lot lower and there were far more complaints about how annoying it was.

    It's a weird one now, fun or frustrating by turns, on the roll of a dice. Either you end up struggling to hurt anyone or you're mowing everything down incredibly fast, with little in-between the extremes, and entirely dependent on your luck in terms of which enemy gets the buff. I'm sure we'll see a few more complaints as the week progresses, though.

    @the_kettle

    Fully agreed.

    If you choose to play from long range, it's about the luck (or lack) of having a direct line of sight to the guardians.
    Short range, going in the middle is where Hunter's Fury shines, and I used it a lot last evening, chasing and picking guardians.
    Also, playing in a group helps a lot, as one guardian kill buffs the entire team.

    Yep, most likely we'll see some eventual complains from players that stay in cover (which is what I was doing mostly in May). 😁 😳 🤕

    I was trying out my new DZ build... with Hunter's Fury, the Momento, Zero F's and shield... (with Vector SMG) and it was perfect... I just ran towards the Guardian putting my shield up, cut them down and mopped up the rest in short order. Random patrols, convoys, propaganda broadcasts, public executions, and territory controls were easy. It was a lot more challenging to do a Control Point though... if I unwillingly let them spread out, it was tough trying to locate the guardian and get them before the rest cut me down.

    @imagine_brata

    This quite impressive (for me at least)... 1.2M per hit...
    Would you be willing to share the details of the build that goes with the apartment? Thanks

    1200 RPM Vector with Insync (wish had version "Named Vector" 1200RPM with Perfectly Insync .. 😉 ID kill for this named variant//.

    but yeah vector 1200RPM with close and persoanl /or insync talents (my personal fav talent is insync using drone and turret... targeting the high-end , aka "Elite NPC;s"

    @kraziagent Actually I found the most fun application of the Vector is with Striker. I have a 4-pc Striker set with 58% CHC and 148% CHD. Chest is Striker, so I have the 100 stacks max, but am still playing around with other two pieces, as well as skills. Current talent on Vector is Fast Hands, which seems a requirement because with the sky-high RPM PLUS 15% boost from Striker you empty a clip in about 1 second - even with the extended (+20 round) magazine!

    The build is squishy as hell, but what a load of fun with the mega-rapidfire spray you can do. Downing heavies in 2-3 second is almost comical.

    P.S. The named variant of this gun is Dark Winter, and the talent is Perfect Killer (I have that too). I am not aware of any Vector variant that has Perfectly In-sync.

    EDIT: Was trying 4 pieces with Devil's Due backpack and a chest with Unbreakable, but still too wimpy. I have all Striker pieces to juggle back and forth, so tried swapping in the brand chest and backpack and put Catharsis mask on along with Dusk attack gloves. The mask seems to toughen it up more, while the extra stacks and damage from Striker chest and backpack still make it brutally strong. Want to keep playing with this a bit more.

    @sock_monkey havent had chance to read the full thing but mines ths mpx with sadist, 4 piece hf and a sokolov backpack with the talent on to support the bleed, cant remember thr name off top of my head. Hits like a truck and was made to counter all those adrenaline intimidate lady death shield builds, which it does. Im not online but could find the build when maintenance is done.

    It would be a bit of an irrelevant build now though as the purpose it was built for no longer exists, just havent shifted it since. With the whole expertise thing now though im just going to focus all my builds around lmgs as its my favourite weapon type. I get why they did the expertise thing but its going to limit everyone heavily soon so i see why you'd want to know the best smg now so you can focus materials into it. Ive never used the apartment, got a god rolled in the stash but never used it.
