    I'm personally not running any Gambit Prime content, but I will be grinding Thorn and the Allegiance Quest out come this next reset. If you're playing on PC, add me:

    Thanks to random rolls and Black Armory, there are some good legendary snipers you can roll for PvP usage. Namely Supremacy, Long Shadow, Tatara Gaze. I'm not much of a sniper, I mainly run pulse's and Hand Cannons. So I was absolutely ecstatic about the return of the Last Word, and soon, Thorn.

    To add on to my above post: These are harder to obtain. Supremacy is a Last Wish raid drop, Long Shadow is a crucible Random Rolled drop, and Tatara Gaze is a black armory schematic. An easier to obtain sniper would be the Twilight Oath, which can be obtained in the Dreaming City.

    You unlock the other planets as you progress in the story. So finish all the Red War quests on Earth, do the adventures to level up, and you should unlock Titan next. After Titan, you unlock Nessus, then Io.

    **EDIT** Forgot to answer the next part of your question. It's always multiplayer, even in PvE, so you'll be with other people in patrol zones. Once you unlock strikes, those are matchmaking. Eventually, you'll unlock raids, but raids require a fireteam. Same with Nightfalls.

    The part that tells you to buy Forsaken is the Tangled Shore. You need to buy the Forsaken expansion to access that Location, as well as the Dreaming City. There's also the annual pass which gives you access to 3 DLC additions to Forsaken, of which the second one just came out this past Tuesday. These give you access to new content and activities as well, but no new planets as of yet.

    As of right now, it's Io. Unless your free copy came with the year 1 DLC, Curse of Osiris and Warmind. Then Mercury and Mars will appear as well. We'll see once you finish the story.

    And my visit to the Blind Well, very eerie and foreboding, but mysterious and beautiful as well. <3

    In relation to my previous post, Thorn is beautiful. Feels underwhelming in PvP. Surprisingly amazing to use in PvE. Definitely worth it, but don't be like me and do it all at once.

    I wish I was still able to play D2. I got to around 530 light and had to stop due to school and TLOPO-related work.

    Take your time and get through what you need to do. You'll have time eventually!

    The grind was tedious, and I don't ever intend to do it on another character ever again, but I can successfully say that I have completed the Malfeasance Questline, and the gun itself is a fun little toy.

    EDIT: A beautiful shot of the weapon in it's stat inventory, with the beautiful Red String of Fate ornament.

    Never really liked malfeasance, since there are higher DPSing hand cannons in that slot, legendaries included. 180s also are my least favorite archetype, they don't seem to hit hard at all.

    I mean.. yes. Sometimes I care less about numbers and play with the weapon to play with it. Games aren't fun if you're just constantly trying to work out Math on best DPS/DPM, that just relegates you to a single method of thinking where everything else is obsolete just because you don't do an equal number of damage.
