Interesting that folks brought up the Sleeper Simulant. Got mine a couple of weeks ago; haven't used it anywhere since I picked it up. This would be fantastic for some of the tougher bosses, but even then, I find it hard to give up my Sins of the Past. Also, I got the Sleeper after I completed the Wing Contender gear set and got my Trust and Bygones, so there's not much incentive to keep playing Gambit. It's a fun mode, but there's no denying that the Sleeper's ubiquity and overpowering presence left many unhappy, and it needed to be addressed within Gambit (the upcoming ammo and aim changes coming in next week's patch is a start).
Wait until you get a Bad Omens with Tracking and Cluster bombs, that Sins will get deleted hard and fast. Believe me when I say there is a ton of incentive to play Gambit. Now that the Aim Assist has been dropped on the Sleeper it does make it a bit harder because it does lock to PvE targets faster that PvP targets. Once they lower the amount of ammo you get it will make it a little less fun too. The only people that it left really unhappy are those players that are not aware of the counter too it. I had to say that a run and hide strategy is a good counter but in this case if you can get back to the further area in the map you can generally avoid getting hit. Not only that but if you have a fast rate of fire pulse or scout you can melt an enemy before they even a shot off.

Not to make a random input. But instead of making a new topic. Ill add it here. Is the base game, without expansion good? And worth the buy this lare? It is only $16 new.
You can definitely buy the base game and a couple expansions for around $20 on CDKeys and G2A at least the time when I was looking around for new games. But if you're going to buy Destiny I high suggest you just grabbing the entire DLC while you're at it. You'll run through the game so fast if you just buy the base game.

I have Bad Omens (a couple, actually; one with Tracking and Cluster Bombs), but I left them in my Vault. I have used it in PvE; Tracking's nice, but to me, it doesn't seem to have the punch or blast radius of the Sins (my Sins has Cluster Bombs; no Tracking). If my play style involved crouching and aiming, I could see the benefits of the Bad Omens with these weapon perks, but I like to fire off rockets while on the move or airborne (not to brag, but I'm pretty good at nailing my targets ;) ), which is why Sins are a staple in my loadout.

As for Gambit, I'll still run it if I get an invite, but as a solo player, I'd rather be elsewhere. The run-and-hide strategy works (sometimes) if you're on the opposite end of a map, but that's not always possible, especially if you were in the process of banking motes when the invader alarm sounds. Also, I have little interest in running Gambit with randoms. It's more than people stealing motes; the bigger issues are not banking them, or helping to clear blockers.

It seems to still have a big following on here. So I think ill pick the full game up, to run around with a few people from GS lol

I use to be on PC, I was on Playstation PC and Xbox. And then just switched over to Xbox when the 360 came out. My old PC got fried, and I never went back. I have a little Laptop I still play Age Of Empires on, but it is hardly strong enough to run those lol
