Meltdown Strategy (and Tips)

Because it is the Dominion version of Trials of Osiris this weekend, you’ll want to gear your positioning and overall strategy depending on where the capture point is. Three potential capture zone spawn locations exist: Centre, Storage Bay, or Outside.

Overall, you’ll need to think on the fly to win. However, only take flanks or try unique strategies if you play in a team or can confidently win a 1v1 duel. Nothing is worse than a random teammate trying to be the hero and instantly dying. Do not be this player. Instead, play with your team and work together.

You can find our detailed guide, including the map’s meta, tips, and tricks: Meltdown PvP Guide.

If you truly want to increase your chances at success and improve your Win ratio, map positioning will be key. This is where Relikt‘s maps become a must.

Rank Reward
4 Upgrade Module (x2)
7 Enhancement Prism (x3)
10 Rotating weapon
13 Upgrade Module (x2)
16 Rotating weapon

But perhaps more importantly, you will also receive Trials of Osiris engrams every time you rank up. And if you decide not to focus them, and simply decrypt them, you will receive a Trials item you don’t already have in your collection.

Adept Trials weapons

Trials of Osiris Adept weapons, reserved for Flawless runs, offer better stats (via an improved Masterwork) and can accept Adept mods, which are superior to normal mods. Needless to say, Adept weapons are superior and a major flex for hardcore players.
