Frustration post - I absolutely hate the Desperate Measures!

I have tried this multiple times, on Classic for god's sake!, and so far have died always to some randomness. This one progression!! level will make me leave the game....again. No biggie I know Like the title says - a frustration rant. Gaming is supposed to be fun. If as a developer you cannot produce good content that lasts then don't just try and use filler - you end up making a bad quality sausage. yes I am accusing Bungie of using deliberately stupid gaps between check points and stupid random deaths as a means of prolonging game play. If they are not - prove it to us

  • Thanks for all the advice, etc. I have tried it on a Titan and a Hunter both over 1750 and both reasonably well equipped. It is the randomness in dying that gets me - not skill based Also the so called cheese method, hiding under the stairs, doesn't appear to be able to do anymore but to be honest why cheat? That only shows that there is a problem with the game design I am just giving up on it. Bungie seem to think its fine as is - I don't. Games are for fun and this part isn't. Have uninstalled and probably won't be back Was fun while it lasted I guess

      There are way too many things in this game that is deliberately designed to prolong gameplay because of the major lack of engaging content. It's like how they used "power engrams" reaching max level for 4 years just to keep you players playing giving you the illusion to make you feel you were doing something, when in fact you were just chasing that string they have been pulling away from you like some playing with a cat. It's funny reading posts that players say they have nothing to do now since the change. Um, you weren't doing anything in the first place 😂🤦‍♂️ All jokes aside, It's because most of you just accepted the poor quality work over the years, and made it really freaking easy for this business to cut a hell of a lot of corners. When a business stoops this low to prolong gameplay, that alone should tell you there is something majorly wrong with the content they are producing.

    • Look up the cheese for this mission on YouTube. Life is too short for nonsense. Once the mission is done, you never have to do it again.

    • Hunter was actually pretty difficult. Warlock was easier. Titan was a fookin breeze m8. I think it's time to nerf hunters again.

    • Is this the Calus fight, on Classic I struggled with Hunter so I LFG'd it to finish the regular campaign, Hunter it was crazy on Classic. On Titan it was easy and I beat the campaign Legendary. I ran Witherhoard with Ammit AR2 (Turnabout, Adaptive M) with an LMG (land tank origin). I would fly around in circles using grapple/punch on psions while hitting Calus with Witherhoard. The platform enemies I would use whatever I could to generate special ammo. LMG for the Tormentors. For Second phase Calus I used Witherhoard and finished him with super.

    • Your first mistake was not using warlock, and your second mistake was not using apotheosis veil.

    • Are you talking about the quest? It's free, I ran it for fun/quest progress last night and had a genuine blast. Granted, I was several stiff drinks in, so maybe that's the key ... I actually don't mind that they removed the cheese spots either because Calus is a bot.

    • Use Deterministic Chaos in the first part and then use an Until It's Return with Trench Barrel to rip Gladiator Calus to shreds. It's really not a hard fight. You can do that on the weekly legendary version too

        • You're using a gimped subclass if you're using strand. You don't have access to the good stuff. There's plenty of guides and cheeses, you are not alone with that mission. I bet a lot of guardians cheesed it, I see them doing it during the matchmade weekly story mission.
