Factions

The weekly announcement today was heavy on factions. I played as Future Warcult in Destiny 1, but Dead Orbit's scout rifle definitely has my interest over Warcult's fusion rifle, and Monarchy's sidearm does nothing for me. So what are your views on this? Should we all brand together or go our separate ways? What are the advantages/disadvantages for banding together and why should one faction be better/worse than the others?

Us banding together would have little overall effect since it seems to be a global effort. I had a character pledged to each faction so I could buy their goods.

Some people already have some of those weapons.

That is a sweet looking scout rifle. I hope FWC hand cannon and pulse rifle have good perks.

Yeah, I'll be pledging one character to one of each faction, so I'll be covered. I will say if the Suros sidearm from NM is like the one you start the game with, then it should be real nice. 

I'm glad the factions are finally coming back and it's cool we have a global event to fight it out. I'm thinking Dead Orbit will win as it seems a lot of people really like them. 

However, it's all about style for me and I don't really care for DO's look...lol

The sidearm is Last Dance, and it is available from Zavala as engram rewards from strikes.  Last Hope is just as good and is a general drop, I believe.

For factions, I have always favored DO for the look and shaders.  I prefer darker shaders, but I have to say the New Monarchy Red/Brass shader is pretty boss.  

The question for me is that are their weapons going to be similar to the same model?  DO scout rifle looks just like Call to Serve.  I hope they are significantly different.  Maybe they will have more perk choices in each slot?  That would be nice.  For the first time I will probably go DO as it has a pulse primary.

DO had the weapons I wanted in D1. It also happens that I thought their stuff looked the best, but I didn't pick them for that. When do we get details about the three prize weapons? I only have looks to go on at the moment.

Faction Wars begin today. Who are you going to rep? I think FWC has the strongest offerings. The NM stuff looks decent, but the DO weapons and gear are not appealing - especially that scout rifle that is being offered as the "prize". 

I'm putting my main character (Warlock...master race) on FWC. Titan on NM and Hunter on DO.

I'll be examining the equipment, colours and badging today. FWC will be high priority for my Titan but you never know what may become appealing. In any case, my future other characters will use the different factions.

FWC it is. Another new way to earn stuff doing things I was going to do anyway. Nice.

The prize weapon perks all look pretty interesting. Thinking of going FWC first as well, not so much because of the pulse rifle, but because of good things I've heard about their other items.

NM for my Warlock, DO for my Titan, and FWC for my Hunter; unless I change my mind of course.

I got the FWC Handcannon last night and it's quite a gem. The gun features a slightly version of explosive rounds and is very good at staggering targets and does very nice damage. If you are pledged to FWC and get this gun, try it out!

Yup, seems quite effective.

Applied a full set of FWC Rain shaders to my armour. I love it.
