Decided today was a Warlock day, so I hopped into Rumble and started experimenting.
I initially ran Coldheart and a curated Lonesome(Reckoning sidearm), but that didn't go over so nicely in a lobby of Recluses and Riskrunners. Following that, I started looking around in my vault for different kinetic weapons, as I still wanted to do a build with Coldheart.
What I have for you today is not a build featuring Coldheart.
Instead, I have a build that I'm tentatively naming "Rocky Balboa". This build features a Year 1 pulse rifle, the Disrespectful Stare:
I like this pulse rifle because it's a decent PvP option with the buff to high impact pulses in Shadowkeep, and it features high-caliber rounds on top of being a high-impact. The SC Holo sight is also my favorite sight in the game. This pulse rifle will indeed kill a Guardian in two bursts. I'm warming up to it very quickly.
In my energy slot, I have a Wizened Rebuke that Saladin gave me yesterday:
This baby features a Red Dot sight, Liquid Coils, Auto-Loading Holster, and Tap The Trigger(the best perk for fusion rifles in my opinion). The icing on the cake is the range masterwork. I added a targeting adjuster mod for extra consistency. Also, due to being a high impact frame, this fusion rifle is incredibly forgiving.
In my power slot, I'm running just about anything. Since I'm not running an exotic anywhere else in my loadout, this is where I've been sticking my exotic weapon. Black Talon, Deathbringer, and Thunderlord have been my options so far. Black Talon is a particular favorite of mine, it has all the benefits of running a sword with none of the drawbacks.
