Trying to get better in Crucible, any suggestions

I'm trying to get to adept in the competitive playlist and I'm gonna be honest, I'm hot garbage. I haven't really played Crucible that much and when I do, I don't feel as optimized as everybody else. Does anybody have any advice on what weapons I should be using? Any help would be appreciated. (I'm a titan main).

  • What I would recommend is a few pointers - Use a loadout that compliments eachother. Using 2 long range primaries is neat but if you allow the enemy too close you are screwed - try to master a special weapon. You can ignore true meta. Is it easier? Yeah. However meta isn't truly braindead and if it doesn't suit you, there is no point in forcing yourself - If you aren't good and playing in a team, try to improve your strategy skills instead of slaying skills. Your teammates appreciate the callouts that help them win - keep calm, seen way too many lose their -blam!- and be angry, not only does it drag down your team, also yourself because you don't think clearly. - learn from your deaths. Too many times I have seen people push the same sniper in the same way too many times. Is getting killed avoidable? No. But you can limit it by learning from how you died. My friend used to be frustrated about snipers and kept pushing them, not only does complaining fix anything in the moment of combat, it leaves you a man down. Is the enemy cheese annoying when it happens? Yeah. You can avoid it by learning - In gamemodes like survival, play lives, that 1v3 hero moment is very rare. Especially in higher level of play or equal skill. In countdown? Cool you killed an enemy on the other side of the map, they just defused the damn charge. Comp rankings are decided upon how you play objective - If your teammates talk trash, let them, they are the clowns, not you, however stagnating upon growth by saying criticism is hate is just bad. If you have a very angry man or woman in your chat who is spewing nothing but baseless -blam!-. Don't listen, constructive feedback is the way to improve

  • Well you are the first step to being "good". Just got PK Titan with Unending Temp, Cloudstrike, and void subclass. Zeroskill and you can just sprint forward and bungie just buffs everything. If you wanna get better learn to not use meta and counter the trash meta players. This game doesnt take skill anymore.

  • There are a lot of layers to it. Most important is your base / foundation. Sounds like you're building from ground level. Great place to start. *Queue private match and go in alone to learn maps. *Look up tutorials for basic on -field practices. Learn & use them until they're habit. Minimum 30 days after implementing. True Vanguard has many, transformed my play from .50 - 2.78 years 1 and 2. You'll be surprised how much you're doing wrong & can help yourself. Shooting from the strong side of cover, movement, concentric circles / "onion layers on the field" / lane management, etc, *Your choices - AR / Hand Cannon cover roughly the same parts of the middle ground. You'll need to add both a CQ and longer range answer.....particularly if playing solo when you're constantly having to adjust and think on your feet.. Options you feel comfortable swapping to. In a pre-made team setting it's very different - players better in CQ might always be the head of the spear while a sniper holds down the lane as overwatch. Common tactic. *March 5 Sandbox is prioritizing percision and primary weapon gunplay. Look yourself up on Destiny Tracker and see which weapons you're already landing a higher % of headshots with. You might be surprised. *Learn to step on / off the aggression gas. It can be subtle. But......for each engagement regardless of aggression.... understand the importance of shooting first as it applies to electronic information transmittance over the internet. Those fractions of a second matter.....and added up over the course of a match, week, month, year = difference maker. Pre and Post firing a lane can be good engagement practice. *Don't put too much pressure on yourself learning a specialized weapon like a sniper or slug shotgun. Personally, I love Chaperone and Gunnora's Axe although out of my favor recently....and have recently started leaning into Mercurial Overreach. If you do go that route....take them into every casual activity you do. Never unequip. The more reps the better. * Its mandatory to build craft. Build / use weapons that play to Your strengths. Take advantage of damage / health buffs and perks. Same goes for your armor. There are plenty of resources including lightgg, destinyarmorer, and streamers galore. *Don't put too much emphasis on THE "meta". There's still room to succeed with YOUR meta. Plenty of players use successful and specialized loadouts you dont see at the top of the use list. *Record your matches and be honest with yourself when you review. Hats off when you're outplayed.....learn from it. Take note of what you did / did not do to leverage the situation. *Accept that very advanced cheats / hacks are in every playlist. Fact is, there isn't much that can or will be done about it in the current environment. Encountering them is RNG like everything else. I'm sure you'll see improvement in your game in the near future & moving forward. Stick with it.

    If you’re in Silver, your aim should be to get to Gold (maybe Platinum, depending on how much you play and how quickly you improve). It’ll likely take multiple seasons/episodes to get to Adept. What weapons do you like using? Bear in mind, weapon choice will only get you so far. Movement and strategy are also important. Learning what other players are likely to do can help you predict their next move.
