Destiny MIDA Multi-Tool – A Review of this Exotic Scout Rifle

You can get the MIDA Multi-Tool as a reward in both the Crucible and PvE, you can buy it from Xur, and lastly you can get it from the Cryptarch. It is named well since you can use it for most scenarios inside of Destiny. It causes Kinetic damage.

This exotic gun can deal damage quickly and continuously because of its magazine size. Its so easy to get that first shot off before anyone else to start out your fight in the lead, and the reload speed of the gun means you don’t have to duck out of the fight for long.

One of my favorite things about it is that it boosts your agility and movement speeds. That increase to your movement speed is definitely noticeable and useful, that’s for sure. This is a gun that suits many different styles of play due to its nice customization options. What I mean is that the perks available work well for a lot of different types of play.

The MIDA Multi-Tool Downsides

Jack of all Trades and Master of None really applies here (assuming you’ve heard that saying before). The gun does well in any situation as I previously mentioned, but its not exceptional at any specific thing. Many prefer it for PvP for that very reason, and many of the perks fit PvP better overall. Also, if you compare the range of this to other scout rifles in the game it comes up short. With the recoil of the gun those highly accurate shots you’re trying to make are going to be a challenge.
