Cloudstrike

They return to moons devoid. Their eyes searching. It's just begun. Meet this storm of sound and fury, till thunder-clashes fade to silence.

"Tell us about the Stormherd!" Kellikin shouted.

She resisted the urge to shush him because he'd been helpful earlier, yelling a warning to her when he saw the violet haze rising from the hilltops. It had given her time to call them into the bunker. Eldest of the children, he'd already experienced several voltaic squalls.

"Okay. Gather round. Come on. Huddle up so I don't have to shout.

"A long time ago, the raiders came every winter. They came and took nearly all our stored food, and many in our village starved. But then spring would come with time for planting, and another summer. In the autumn, we harvested as we are doing now. Each time, we stored even more food, and we hid it more carefully, in case the raiders returned.

"And they did. When they saw that we had survived the winter, they fought even harder for our food, and found nearly all that we had hidden. And so it was, for too many years. They always took from us, never giving anything in return.

"And then, one autumn night, there was a great rumbling. At first some thought it was thunder, but it was the roar of the raiders' quads in the valleys. They had come early!

"Maybe they had a new leader. Perhaps they were too impatient for the harvest. We'll never know.

"Because as the raiders roared through our village, a blue-white bolt of lightning struck among them—BOOM! Before anyone's eyes had cleared of spots, a masked stranger clad in robes and wielding a crook had killed a score of them. With her weapon, she hooked lightning from the clouds and hurled it, thundering among them.

"They say there was something more than mortal about her, for those who were there said she could move faster than the eye could track, and her steps took her higher than anyone could leap. But eventually, the raiders surrounded her, and she fell to their guns.

"Yet there was something else different about her: the storm crow. It flew at her shoulder, and when she fell, it looked upon her body, and under its gaze, she rose again.

"This time, she pointed her crook to the sky, and clouds moved at her command. Our people fled as thunderbolts stampeded through the village. Our homes were not safe. Only our root cellars, like this bunker, were a refuge.

"No one emerged until the thunder ceased rolling. The raiders had fallen or fled. None would return, not until three winters had passed. And now, raiders only trouble us outside the village.

"So when you see the purple mist rise from the hills and hear the thunder, that is your sign to take shelter. And when you hear the rumbling roll through the village, it just might be the Stormherd, come back to make sure we're safe."

Thunder rolled again, but only a few children started. All looked to the ceiling and wondered.

PvE: there are two different ways (that I have found) to make this effective in PvE. headshot red bar, explosion kills everything around him. or pick a boss with small enemies around him and start landing the crits, after a few crits the storm will show up increasing damage to the boss and killing everything around. this made it seems good at both killing groups of red bars, all the way up to doing some long-range damage vs bosses.

PvP. I suck at PvP sniping, so take this with a grain of salt.

For PVE, its pretty nasty actually, good for ad clearing and does substantial dps in my tests. Being a 140, and doing extra damage with the lightning, it may be a long range dps option in endgame content. Pvp, I like it as well but not as much. It is fun to get collats with but it gets flinched like crazy and the zoom is pretty high, but the aim assist feels good. Overall, one of my favorite exotics for pve now and a fun option in crucible too.

In PvE it's ok, very overrated imo, you need to throw away your ammo for good DPS, if you can just use Duality instead tbh.
In PvP it's nutty, I mean, you pretty much need to have Sniper Targeting & Dexterity but if it works it'll do incredibly well.
Overall Solid Energy Exotic, hovewer it can easily get out-damaged by any god roll 140RPM and the zoom makes me vomit sometimes when I play Crucible.

this thing in pve is so good. tested it in raids n high level nightfall. basically it replaced izanagi for me. it destroys champions and clears trash mobs at the same time n it's a good option for dps aswell. as a hunter i've paired it with mask of bakris for that 10% extra dmg.
i suck at pvp but the flinch is kinda a little bit too much for this weapon but if ur good at sniping it's gonna be a fun for u.

who let this do over 1m damage in one taniks DPS phase

The weapon is above average at everything. For PVP, it's got enough aim assist to help out, and is a 140, so if you can land your headshots you can get a good streak going. In PVE, the weapon has high DPS for a special weapon, and good ad clear abilities as well. When you land three headshots, and they can be three different targets, a lightning storm will land in the third place, doing higher damage and lasting longer as well. Solid weapon overall.

With a full 7 bullet mag you can almost kill Carl, which is the new test boss for dps. It gets him to about 1/6 health if you hit every crit. Very good to clear big clumps of red bars by simply headshotting one. The lightning from a precision shot does more damage than a precision shot exactly where it strikes, so it will probably also one shot In pvp no problem. If only i was good at pvp sniping. I don't know how much damage the full storm does but i know it's a lot.

50 zoom makes it a very unattractive choice for crucible, but the dragonfly esc perk is pretty neat for combos
0
I'm not sure how good Cloudstrike is for boss dps but for add clear it is great and it has quickly became one of my favorite PvP snipers in the game. I don't know what it is about it but it feels really good to me. And the Lightning Storm perk is very strong and capable of killing entire teams if they group up too much.
0
I love my cloudstrike, and since i got it i was in top in leaderboard every match and my kd ratio went from 0.6 to 1.33
It can also take down strike bosses with maximum ease if you have some good aim
Thanks cloudstrike

Insane dps especially in dsc and it 1 shots its aoe in crucible. Only downside is the ads speed
0
The sniper is really good pretty much everywhere. Not so great into crucible though unless you can get headshots then it is pretty good. N p v e it does good add control and great boss damage if you get three precision head shots cuz it creates a lightning storm. But still not that great on a single target damage more of a AOE weapon.
0
In pve sustained dps is one of the best, in pvp if you get used to it it works well
0
Suitable for both boss damage and clearing
In pvp - if you manage to catch the moment when the enemies are standing in a heap and kill one in the head, then you will destroy the whole team with the help of this sparkling thing perk
-1
Must have in Taniks encounter. Out DPS Anarchy/shotgun combo and Xenophage.
-1
50 zoom on a sniper in PvP is rough as hell. also the same archtype as omniscient eye/The Supremacy, yet has less aim assist than those two, takes your exotic slot. Fun to mess around in, but definitely not something I'd normally use in PvP

Secondary trait will probably give good boss DPS and in crucible the lightning can hit multiple targets easily.
