Sweet Business (Destiny)

Dipped my toe into Crucible. As could be expected, I struggled to find a rhythm as I was experimenting with different guns. Nothing was really standing out, and I was getting beat pretty regularly in firefights...which I generally interpret as not having the right tool for the right situation.

Anyway...browsing through my weapons I noticed the previously found, but quickly forgotten, exotic auto rifle Sweet Business. So I gave it a try.

Well.

...

It takes a little practice, and good players will quickly learn how to counter (flanking FTW), but holy shit. I feel a little bit dirty using it. Super fun to wind up and walk like a tank into a fire fight. Just drains shields and HPs, and seems to panic opposing players.

It's like walking around with a heavy chain gun. It chews through ammo, but you respawn with full ammo again after you die.

Am I a bad person if I cheese the ever-living shit out of this? Feels like something they might nerf in the future.

Personally, I've had to use smart play in the right situations with it, but when it works, it really works.

Though there are also some times where, in a game where range and ammunition have pushed my playstyle towards being best served by 720 or 600 RPM guns rather than 900, I can just enjoy shooting a good old bullet hose.

Loving it.

Walked into MM for the first time with it and my son was watching. He was impressed.

I'm sure a lot of guardians pee themselves when they round a corner, too late noticing a SB already spooling up.

If a radar sector is full, I start spooling it up and walk around the corner. I don't zoom in until I see a target.

The balance is in the spool up time. If they have the drop on you, switch to energy weapon.

I was actually getting wrecked pretty regularly by MIDA. Is that considered OP currently?

I've been using a Scathelock and when 1v1 I usually walk away, Mida or not.

NOW, if it's two people head on, I will probably lose.

If I'm flanking, I can take out 3 people easy with one clip. (and I have because I'm awesome.)

BUT if I'm facing multiples and at least one of them have a Mida, it's insta-death. If teamshooting Mida's, game over man. Game over.

And I laugh at your Sweet Business. MWAhahaaaaa I'm unstoppable with my load out.

In fact, I take it all back. I'll take on 4 Midas and walk away unscratched. I'm like Neo and Trinity in the lobby.

Are you drunk?
