The bounty that requires double kills with the fusion rifle, I found the easiest way to complete it was doing The Dark Within, Earth mission. Let those things run at you and light them up. "easy" vanguard XP.

Kill 10 Hive Majors or Ultras, Earth, from the spawn point, take the left path and head into that "dark cellar", you'll find 3 Hive Majors there and farm them. They are level 18.

Also scout the area, I've found Spinmetal and loot chests as well.

Edit: Shrine of Oryx is the story mission to complete this and the 20 fusion rifle kills.

To maximize and make your play time efficient, do as many "easy" bounties together. If you do them separately, you'll burn yourself out and it won't be any fun anymore.

Heroic modifier.

Just replay the story mission on hard to earn that bounty.

Thanks to Mecha, turning in completed bounties help with weapon and armour upgrade XP.

For salvage purposes or otherwise, if you have gear equipped that you've already unlocked all the perks, it can be worth it to switch to gear that isn't leveled up before turning in bounties. Even if you are just going to scrap it, you will get more weapon parts or armor parts out of leveled gear than non.

Let your 7 y/o complete the bounties where you have to complete 6 patrol missions on a planet. Stopped me from getting burned out.

When you reach level 4 and beyond, you'll get a nice reward waiting for you with the Postmaster. Do those bounty missions and the engrams will appear.

I now realize what these Bounty missions are good for, levelling up your weapons and armour quicker with the added XP bonus'

Also to increase your reputation with the Vanguard, Faction or Queen for postmaster drops for each increase in level.

Until the loot system is fixed, just get to level 3 asap so you can buy purple gear as opposed to hoping to get something from an engram drop.

This is a good location to complete any Fallen bounty missions.

It seems like turning in 3 completed bounties at once might be the key to receiving the exotic weapon bounties. I just picked up the 2nd one within a week. They are now taking up 2 of my bounty slots, so might have to abandon one.

Today's Vanguard Bounty's can be done "together" Farm those public events for the 3 gold tiers, you'll get your 10 Fallen Majors or Ultra kills by doing so, and the 9000 xp without dying.

Lob, Jack and myself did this the other night.

We each patrolled a sector on the planet and only did "kill" missions. We'd only do patrol or scan missions when we had nothing else and they were "nearby".

We'd farm kills, loot chests and materials and call out when there was a Public Event about to happen. From Steppes to Forgotten Shores, it would take about 60s to reach. Mothyards was about 30s. So plenty of time to get there.

This honestly is the most time efficient way to complete Public Event bounties and other bounties.

Can't wait to try this out on other planets and the moon.

Do along side with Daily.

Just a friendly reminder, getting 10 Fallen major or ultra kills can be done via Nightfall. There will be plenty to go around for a fire team. :lol:

I also hope you remembered to pick up the bounty for completing the Nightfall Strike yesterday, too.

I've saved up today's completed bounties in case I get some more raid gear. I learned that lesson from yesterday, if we plan to raid, don't hand in the bounties until the night is over. :lol:

I used this location to complete bounties.

I hope they don't patch this one.
