Tips and Tricks
- Red Death has high impact and low Rate of Fire. It is possible to 2-shot enemy players in The Crucible.
After the release of The Dark Below, Attack of the weapon was increased from 274-300 to 302-331. Players can upgrade old versions of the weapon into the new one by visiting Xur and paying 1 Exotic Shard and some Glimmer.
Red Death is a possible reference to the short story by Edgar Allen Poe of the same name. Story where rich nobility tried to sequester themselves away from the plague, only to be slaughtered by a mysterious specter who got into the party.
