Its notJust FYI on Saturday I did the off the ledge solo as a Titan with 2 nade exotic chest piece bought from Xür, on Hard and got the sparrow and 3 shards. XB1
And yesterday solo on normal as well, and the normal mode only took 2 attempts before it worked. Oh I guess I should mention the solo hard mode and normal attempts were both before the first teleport, so it can definitely be done still. I am in class right now so if the update has been implemented then disregard what just posted then
I have the save on Hard for x1. Can you push him off when you get a chance H HerpOGThis Video shows you how to beat Atheon in 30 secs 100% solo. I did this myself on all 3 Characters in under a hour on Hard Mode. Its simple all you need is a warlock sunsinger and make sure you have the first grenade and the "Gift Of The Sun" ability so you have 2 grenades and just do what I did in the video.
If you need the hard mode last checkpoint for Atheon my GT is Diesel Herp and its for Xbox One Only
