Yo these strategies are WILD.
Get your Touch of Malice ASAP. Don't do anything else in the game. Go do that right away. Oryx and Wizards are a joke after it.
There's 0 need for anyone to be using any other secondary than a sniper. If you can't stagger Oryx with a fireteam of 6 snipers, y'all need to learn how to snipe. That's a huge target. You don't even need weapons of light for it. Different strokes for different folks, I get it, but the encounter is so simple with the right tools. 4 snipe shots, switch to Touch of Malice, keep firing away.
Also, @430AM, I would keep that raid auto. I hate auto rifles. I got four of them so I started to use one. All raid weapons do extra damage to taken enemies. It helps a lot. Might not be a huge damage buff, but I'd rather use one of those as a primary for the raid. It really does help against the taken. Once you get used to using Cocoon perk on all raid weapons too, you get in a rhythm of swapping guns and never run out of ammo.
