Recommended Perks


One of the few Vault of Glass weapons that really doesn't live up to its potential, Atheon's Epilogue's claim to fame was simply making it possible for the common Destiny player to attempt the Thorn Bounty in Year 1. Unfortunately, it's a relic of a bygone era when 100/2 ARs almost never had two stability perks (Counterbalance and Braced Frame or Perfect Balance) and as such the recoil pattern is quite difficult to control. Persistence helps a small bit with accuracy, and the jump in damage from Glass Half Full is small but noticeable, but overall the gun just doesn't have what it needs to compete with the new crop of DoP, Arminius, and Soulstealers Claw. As far as sights go, normally I'd suggest TrueSight for the boost to aim assist, but AE already has high aim assist and you really need more zoom than it provides you, so just feel out which of the other two you like best.
