-- [u]See [b]EDIT[/b] at bottom for the TL;DR[/u] --
So I started working towards re-guilding [u]Deadeye[/u] for this season and came across a bug that I just can't work around: the [u]Ritual of the Season[/u] triumph requires rapid kills with weapons that match the archetype of the current Seasonal weapon, this season being Pulse Rifles with the [b]Veles-X[/b] Aggressive frame Hakke pulse. I managed to get to 18/100 for the triumph, but it's stagnated since then.
I've tried using:
- Other Aggressive frames ([b]Insidious[/b])
- Different frames ([b]Piece of Mind[/b], Rapid-Fire & [b]Smite of Merain[/b], Adaptive),
- Another Void pulse ([b]Collective Obligation[/b])
- Other Hakke pulses ([b]Legal Action II[/b] & [b]Disparity[/b], which is also the only other Hakke Aggressive frame).
- Other Hakke... guns ([b]Ragnhild-D[/b] shotgun). A bit of a stretch, but I use that gun a lot anyway.
All of this was done in the [u]Vanguard Ops[/u] playlist (I don't play Crucible or Gambit that often). If this [i]is[/i] somehow exclusive to strikes, then that doesn't explain how I managed to make [i]some[/i] progress.
If y'all have experienced similar, please comment/like/push this further up the board or something. Guilding [u]Deadeye[/u] isn't important but I won't be able to do so until after the New Year if this isn't fixed soon.
[b]EDIT:[/b] It seems the triumph only makes progress off of grenade launcher kills, like for last season's Ritual weapon (Cry Mutiny).
Think I've got it figured out. I just put on Cry Mutiny, last season's weapon, and made progress in Vanguard Ops. Maybe they didn't change it to a pulse for the triumph this season? Give it a try and let me know, haven't slept so coulda hallucinated it lol
Exactly the same issue for me...trying to Gild after getting Deadeye for the 1st time last season. Insidious was the pick for me ....tried using the new Season Pulse, before realizing (stupidly) it had to be an aggressive burst 450 in the ENERGY slot (I know...🤫😁). Multiple rapid kills (generating orbs so definitely rapid kills) in Vanguard playlist....and NOTHING. I've left it for now and gone off to do other Gilding on Deadeye and Dredgen. Annoying.
