The Mountaintop

"In the heat of battle, Guardian, you will know the right choice to make." —Lord Shaxx Read Lore

[Fireteam leaders: Do not advance on the Wall. Fall back to the Ridgeback District.] Shaxx freezes with a Vandal's windpipe in his fist. He waits for Saladin to justify the strategy. [I repeat: All teams rally at the Ridgeback District. Do NOT advance. The City is lost.] Shaxx drops the Vandal, then empties the rest of his clip into a Captain. He and his fireteam are running on fumes. The dead, Fallen and Guardian alike, litter the Twilight Gap. [Shaxx! Do you copy?] He risks a look over his shoulder at their home, the place they call the Last Safe City. Not burning. Not yet. Gritting his teeth, he reloads. [Shaxx, your orders are to retreat.] He sees a gap in the onslaught of invaders and gestures to the others. "Nkechi! Take Abdi and Truce. Liu Feng, with me! Bray! Cover us!" [This battlefield is not your stage, Shaxx! This is not about glory!] His fireteam doesn't hesitate. [Shaxx! For the final time: Fall! Back!] As the six of them crest the Wall, Shaxx cuts the feed.

Every weapon DOES take a skill to propperly use, contrary to popular belief. Whether it be a sniper rifle, shotgun, or this disgusting missile cannon. It’ll rule in PvE for taking out swarms of adds and majors alike with the spike nades perk, then take it in for some Crucible and you can have a riot playing offensively, flying through the air and bombarding your enemies bellow. However, in comp, you have to be a bit more tactical about your usage. You can’t just go slinging around nades willy-nilly expecting to get kills like in most non-competitive gamemodes. In which case, this can become an excellent backup plan if you’re not some kind of insane god with a sniper rifle.

I have had this gone for almost a year now. In the past this has been a very good weapon for almost any activity. However lately it has been outshined by many other weapons such as Izinagis Burden and firing line snipers. In mine and many other opinions it is not worth the special weapon slot. In PvP however if you have no aim go ahead and use this, but shotguns and snipers are more effective if used half decently. At this point mountaintop is more of a trophy for veteran players and a gimmick. If you are really into this gun then throw on anarchy to give this weapon solid dps.

Amazing gun,sadly now the quest it's a joke and there's no merits in get it now,plus the ones who earn it way before bungie gives a nerf to the entore quest don't get anything ,nothing ,it's like they laughed at us to our time and patience to earn it way back when things aren't this casual but amazing gun though but a ornament for the ones who earn it in it season would be at least nice to compensate us for this unnecessary nerf to the quest
