It’s Destiny 2 launch night! So I’m about to leave home and do something I’m far too old for, and that’s go to a midnight launch. In the meantime though, there’s achievements to earn … so I opted to push on with Tomb Raider tonight anticipating a progress achievement, but also aware that I’d soon be coming up against the Deathless, so there would be opportunity to earn this achievement for killing a swordsman with melee and a finisher.
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but perhaps I was confusing my deathless with each other. I mean … most of them looked like they had swords … but I’m not entirely sure I’d know who was classed as a swordsman or not. Either way, I spent a good 45 minutes killing any deathless that crossed my path with an axe-plus-finisher, but none of them seemed suitable enough to pop the achievement. It wasn’t until later in the levels where I started to struggle with my melee-only approach as I became overwhelmed with deathless that it popped, so I’m not sure what strange sequence of events needed to be triggered but the important thing is we got there in the end!
As soon as I got my achievement (that’s not actually true, I played a little bit longer and earned another melee-based achievement) I switched over to Destiny for a final goodbye. I never made it to Level 400. I only ever did one raid. But it was a great game which I enjoyed watching evolve over the past three years, and I look forward to seeing where it goes for the next three. Thanks for the memories, Bungie!
