Last Hope and the others like it are really strong right now. I am ok with that. You got too close without a counter weapon. However... the too close part needs to be examined. You can absolutely wreck people at distances you really shouldnt. My opinion has always been that Bungie simply cant balance range. There have always been guns like ARs, HCs etc... that hit way to hard at ranges that should be Scout dominant. At any rate, With the team shooting focus in pvp now, getting close is not always easy or wise. So if you do find yourself facing some sword weilding whack job, you better have Last Hope.
