Okay new XIM4 user, I'm deciding on the cosair m65 (old one) max 8200 DPI And the g502... Which would be smoother for destiny? Will 8200 DPI be enough? Cuz I think 11 buttons on the mouse are pretty excessive... But who knows I could just get used to it, but I will be using a keyboard not a joy stick... I'm worried about the sprint/ and slow turning cap speed for destiny.. Also the super use as well since I play night stalker exclusively. ANYTIPS PLEASEEEEE. I've watch numerous videos and ppl like "dr lupo" who is a streamer with xim4.

Just get both of them. Can't go wrong that way

Anyone willing to keep their backup config file?

Looking for this RML setup with NAV and G502 on PS4.

Man I love my XIM4. I've just recently got back into Destiny (thanks to some of you) and even though I've been away for about 6 months I'm still pulling off MVP's in most of my IB matches. I'm barely at 300 light and I have crap weapons. I mean I'm using an auto rifle in the IB for god sakes.

Anyways, quick question for you guys. Since all of my old weapons are outdated, what should I be looking to upgrade or acquire for PvP.

I like to snipe and use Hand Cannons mostly. I can get The Last Word (upgraded), when I get enough marks but is it still a good weapon? I've heard there's been alot of buffs/Nerfs while I've been away.

A few weapons I've heard thrown around Red Death, 1000 Yard Stare? What's the best Hand Cannon now and how do I get it?

The only decent weapon I have right now is Patience and Time. Is 1000 yard stare better or is it just better in the sense that I can use an Exotic for primary instead?

Appreciate the help.

Current Meta weapons (i.e. at the most competitive level).

Hand Cannons
Last Word (they nerfed the hipfire headshot damage but ADS is fine)
Thorn (obviously!)
Imago Loop (undying mind strkie) / Eyasluna (random crucuble drop)  / Fennala's Peril (Iron Banner) style HC's are the competitive legendary ones - look for a range perk
Hawkmoon

Autos
Doctrine archetype still the most competitive

Pulse
Hawsaw
Grasp of Malok
Surox PDX 45

Sniper
LDR (random drop from vanguard package)
1000 Yard
Longbow (random drop from crucible package)

The high impact snipers are still the best snipers in the game, patience and time isn't used at a competitive level, in fact I've personally not seen it used at all since it was bought back, bit of a waste of an exotic slot IMO.

Red Death isn't competitive either - slow fire rate pulses in general aren't as the time to kill is too high relative to the ones listed above.

Im glad u find back to Destiny. Its a awesome game and it will just getting better with the new updates that is coming.

For the weapon choice this video is pretty spot on. https://youtu.be/E_oxiYw6Ke8

Btw How does hidden hand effect us ximplayers? I know DrLupo dont want it on his snipers. Is it because of the aim assist?

Thanks guys,

Bonjah, it really depends on whether or not you like the feel of more AA. I haven't had a problem fixing the AA for any gun using the Steady Aim test firmware.

High rate-of-fire, low-impact, low time-to-kill is the current meta. Red Death, and all low fire-rate weapons in general, have been nerfed into the dirt due to their high TTK.

- Hawksaw Pulse Rifle (Crucible vendor), 1000-yard Stare Sniper Rifle (Vanguard vendor) and Suros JLB-47 Rocket Launcher (Gunsmith, make sure to get Grenades & Horseshoes) are good starting points.
- Farm Omnigul with a trio of Hunters for Grasp of Malok to replace the Hawksaw. Takes 1-2 min per run, depending on Orb generation.
- Stillpiercer SR for Hunters is solid, get it from the Gunsmith questline. Can't be used by other classes. I dislike the Stillpiercer and prefer either the 1000-YS or Longbow. Zen Meteor (PS4 exclusive) is the only way to go for Exotic SRs, but that's more for sh!ts and giggles.
- Party Crasher+1, Conspiracy Theory-D (both with Rangefinder) and Universal Remote dominate the Shotgun scene.
- The Last Word is still very solid and is the most used Hand Cannon in PvP. Save up your Marks, get the Y2 version and infuse that sucker up. Hawkmoon remains highly regarded, as is the baby Hawkmoon, Eyasluna, which frees up the Exotic slot.
- Doctrine of Passing is the Auto-rifle of choice. Soulstealer's Claw from Challenge of Elders is the only real alternative. Failing that, a god roll Arminius-D from the Gunsmith will do the job.
- Truth is the only Rocket Launcher worth getting and it dominates Trials. Tormod's Bellows with Tripod and Grenades & Horseshoes would be an ideal Legendary Rocket Launcher, but that only comes around once every few IBs.
- For Machine Guns, Zombie Apocalypse drops pretty frequently from packages. The raid MGs see a lot of use, but ZA has more bullets in the magazine, fires faster and is easier to get. Thunderlord if you're after an Exotic.
- MIDA Multi-tool, Cocytus SR4, Hung Jury SR4 and Tlaloc are solid Scout Rifles. Tlaloc is obtained via a Gunsmith questline for Warlocks and can be beastly, but requires you to hang onto your Super. Best swapped in when Super is full. MIDA's really the only way to go.
- Plan C, Ashraven's Flight or The Vacancy for Fusion Rifles. I really enjoy FRs, but they're still in a no man's land and can't compete with either Shotguns or Snipers. I want to get my hands on a Telesto to at least make sure that Shotgunner is going down with me.
- Havoc Pigeon (Crucible vendor) or Queen's Choice (Challenge of Elders) for Sidearms. Range is again a problem with Sidearms outclassed by other Specials.


The Last Word paired with 1000-Yard Stare, JLB-47 or a Zombie Apocalypse is a really solid load-out. Longbow (only from reputation packages) could replace 1000-YS, but they're interchangeable.

Handcannon - Hawkmoon (Like a scout rifle that is vey good hip firing as well)
AR - Doctrine/Soulstealers (Not as widespread since the update but still cleans house)
Pulse - Pdx45 or Grasp (Grasp is the same as Oversoul Edict without the full auto. Get it with a range buf and win every one v one)
Scout - Mida/Tlaloc (Mida is obvs still brilliant but not OP. Tlaloc is also amazing and not OP because the cost of using it is high ie no Super)

I play a lot of PVP RML so add me if you need someone to run with.

Does the curve used here for ADS fight against AA?

 I would have assumed for Destiny you dont want to negate the AA as it allows you to do some frankly silly drag snipes hence why I use an LDR as although the AA is not as high as Longbow it has larger magazine by default.

The curve is meant to help with the sudden slow down caused by AA (break through the bubble effect). It's meant to help you get on the target, if you're over aiming try lowering your sensitivity as the curve is raising your sens a little.

If AA isn't an issue for you then don't use a curve. It's really meant for people that find themselves fighting the bubble effect around the player. This is much worse in PvE vs. PvP and of course some guns and attachments vary in the amount of AA.



I play a lot of PVP RML so add me if you need someone to run with.

Cool, I'm on Xbox though. I'll send you a friend request next time I'm on. I'm really needing peeps to do raids with. I haven't done any with Taken King yet so it's hard to pair up with randoms on the Destiny website. Everyone wants people with experience and higher light levels (I'm 304), can't say I blame them, but that pretty much leaves me out in the cold. Most of my friends have moved on to The Division.

I have noticed there's still ALOT of players though, the Tower is always booming. Probably even more so then the last time I played. It may just be due to the Iron Banner, IDK. I just have to make some new friends. :)

I am on xbone as well as ps4 - gamertag bigmoo31 on both

I play all sorts of games sp Im sure we can help each other out. Destiny is still my fave game - its the gun mechanics that keep dragging me back. Plus there is nothing like headshotting a super  ;D

This is probably a noob question but I'm a little confused. On some of your configs, it's says Kpad#, what is that? It kinda sounds like a keyboard button. I thought you were using the Nav and LGS 502? Sorry again for the noob question lol

Hey MacMiggz,

Welcome to the forum!

Nothing wrong with noob questions  ;)

I do use a Nav instead of a KB. However, you can still hook a KB up to the XIM4 and use it's buttons if so desired. So I have the Nav "wireless" and then I bought a little $5.00 keypad (just numbers) so I could have some extra buttons for macros and config activation, things like that. Everything will be recognized by the XIM4. This allows me to use the Kpad (numbers on the right side of the KB) on my lap top with LGS. Then I can match that number in XIM4 manager using the Kpad that's connected to the XIM4.

Make Sense?
