Recluse and Mountain top are probably the most useful in general. Luna's Howl is good, but not as good as it was. Mountain Tops quest is very long. Some tips: Having a "Militias Birthright" or any non heavy GL helps out a bunch. that way you dont need to wait for heavy all the time. Having a play of the game with blast radius, volitile launch and prox nades is the best. You can easily one shot guardians and potentially get 4 kills per brick. The best place to get kills is Mayhem. Use a tether with Orpheus Rigs. Either tether a few and kill one with GL, they all die. Another option for 3 kills in one life, Use top tree tether, use it as a lure. Shoot at the close side of a corner, you back up around another corner so you cant be seen. When an enemy is lured in by the tether, they get snagged and you blast them with MB or Fighting Lion. Its still a grind, but i find its a steady way to make progress Recluse is pretty easy to do, just need to get to Fabled basically, the wins will happen naturally. Some Comp tips: Go into private matches to learn names of map locations, good for when you play in a team. That can help with map knowledge and then you can also practice jumps and how to travel around the map. Playing in the mornings can be easier than in the evenings. Using meta weapons and a strong offensive super definitely helps. If you cant find good people in LFG to play with, its probably because their skill level is better than yours (no offense meant), I also run into this issue. I have an approximate 1.2 KD and 1.7 KDA. I try to use solo matchmaking help me find friends. If you play a match and you like one or two people you played with, send them a "GG" good game, and ask if they would like to party up and play together. Why I think this is a good idea, Bungie matched you up with them, they probably have a similar skill level and are in a similar spot in grinding glory. Learn strategies for "Countdown", usually kill an enemy and rush the survivors. Don't arm the bomb unless you kill one of theirs first. Practice in Rumble or QP new weapons and supers Practice in Rumble your one on one skills. If you cant kill one person by yourself, it will be much harder for you to help out your team.. Probably common knowledge, If you are the only one with a super, that can be a great time to use yours. No one around to counter you easily with a super of their own. Also you start generating orbs for your team mates so they can get their supers going. Try to use the bonus points to your advantage. You just need to play 3 games a week to get 120-160 points a week. 12 weeks at 120 points is 1440. That is 2/3 of the points that you need.

Edited by S_Sasquatch: 6/17/2019 8:51:52 PMSuper in-depth and helpful, man, thank you! I've always stayed up-to-date with all things Crucible with the content creators you've mentioned, even though I barely ever played PvP. I currently have a 1.73KDA, so i'm not helpless. Map awareness and just getting used to the PvP environment is my biggest hurdle. I don't know most of the maps and I get heavy-handed in PvP. I know that'll come in time and i'll definitely run around in Private matches to familiarize myself with each map. Thanks again!
Learning the maps is a big deal. If you dont know how to travel around the map, its easy to get flanked or ambushed. Having no one shooting at you makes for a friendly learning environment. Lol
