Wassup fellow guardians? I’m looking for some support advice. You see I recently required the thorn and it works great for me in pve but I’m having trouble getting kills with it in pvp. Is there a preferred weapon combo or maybe some exotic armor pieces or perks that can make getting kills with it a little easier? I play all classes so I can try on each. Besides recluse what weapon or weapon type would be best to pair with thorn? I’m not looking to main thorn I’m just looking to get better with it. Any tips you guys can give me are welcomed and appreciated thank you.

Although its a 150 rpm i treat thorn like a 110 rpm, in doing so i found alot of success but it is a play style i dont like. That peek and shot style is not for me. One eyed mask works great with thorn, six cayote for hunters is solid too, going invis and being able to land first shot usualy gets you the kill/assist/ or they run away, slap 5 paragon mods if you have. The chest for hunters that gives you 2 knives is great too for blade barrage. Those knives are much easier to land when compared to top and bottom tree gun slinger. For warlocks i use A. Aspect arms for fast handling across any class. Now when i get the getaway artist i already have a build waiting for it, 5 nade mods, bomber perk on boots and enhanced HC flinch and Enhanced HC aim, thorn plus the last dance side arm with quick draw, high cals, range MW and kill clip. I have over 900 pvp defeats on this sidearm, my baby, ohh and mid tree storm caller so ionic traces give me nades back. Hope these help man. Most importantly have fun. Edit: also i have a mid tree arc strider build with shinovus vow, 5 nade mods. Skip nades plus thorn is fantastic. I have enhanced ashes to assets on helmet too. Hit emm with thorn, throw skip nades and get extra super energy. I had a few 38 and 36 defeat games this past week using this.
You may be suffering from handcannon bloom and the overuse of 180s by others. Which isn't your problem, it's the sandbox's.
ON HUNTER TRY FOETRACER, OR LUCKY PANTS.
