Get Outta Town!
I don't mind it because if it gets my fellow guardians the mountain top faster more power to them. I did that quest when you actually needed the full amount of medals, and when I heard that was going to be relaxed I rejoiced. The scout rifle battles are brutal but my god they are fun. On twilight gap it just reminds me of all the D1 ice breaker battles I had across the map. It's a shame it'll be ending tomorrow. It basically is like hardcore mode from cod or swat from halo.
I'm not disagreeing with you, but when you compare 1 or 2 guys using a Fighting Lion farming for mountaintop or whatever, to the 10 other guardians spamming 1 shot head shots across the map with a Jade Rabbit it's really not that bad. It's just an opportunity for people to farm what they wanna farm at an easier and faster rate, whether that be the MT, the Randy's or even a catalyst. Blacklisting guns seems pretty extreme, the game warns you preemptively that firearms do significantly more damage, so the fact that an exotic grenade launcher that fires explosive rounds 1 shots people, is really no surprise at all. I agree that the ammo count especially per pickup is a tad OTT but other than that I see no errors.
