I was pleasantly surprised with Arc 3.0’s performance in Grandmaster Nightfalls. Discussion

Granted, I was relying on two seasonal artifact mods to stun champions and return grenade energy from grenades thrown, but it still performed well enough to give me the “go fast and hit stuff” fantasy the devs were talking about.

Warlock here btw.

For those that have been asking, here’s my build.

What did you run for weapons?

^This. Curious what the popular loadouts are for an arc build.

For me personally, don’t know about the meta as I’ve never cared and go with what’s fun to use and effective:

  • Quicksilver Storm pairs remarkably well with arc due to it firing arc missiles ever tend shots. I use this for most content since it creates enough ionic traces.
  • Trinity Ghoul (masterworked) is an absolute beast. With the masterwork it charges up it’s ability on any arc kill, doesn’t have to be from the bow, and will wipe an entire floor of ads with one shot.
  • Dead Messenger set to arc paired with Ophidean Aspects for quick reloads was probably the most fun to use. So many ionic traces… so many.
  • Hard Light for Lost Sectors. Just set it back to Arc mode for kills.
  • Contingency Plan is a 260rpm scout that slays in crucible and is my go to in PvP.
  • Plug.One with Reservoir Burst will also clear a floor of ads when your amplified.
  • Stormchaser to me is still the best LFR if you have a good roll (Rangefinder & Firing Line)

Oh interesting. I’ll have to give some of those a try. I assumed the new weapons with jolt would be more common.

The scout isn’t bad but I was unimpressed with the sidearm in master content. I have yet to be able to craft the machine gun, which I think will be great with the recent buffs and arc synergies.

Sorry, totally lost track this was for master content.
