Recommended Perks


In my opinion, this is one of the worst weapons in the game. I can't imagine a scenario in which this gun wouldn't be outclassed by almost any other primary option. On paper the stats look alright, with great mag size, aim assist, and equip speed, along with high stability and decent recoil direction, but the abysmal range and leaves a lot to be desired. Once again, definitely not a weapon I would use in PvP, but even in PvE I'd stay away. Hand Loaded doesn't do enough to bring the range out to fair play levels, and Reinforced Barrel helps but destroys the stability that is almost necessary to take advantage of the higher RoF of this impact archetype. Firefly isn't a unique perk at this point in time, with Fatebringer coming back, and Cocoon, instead of being a nice little bonus, becomes almost necessary to use thanks to the horrendous reload speed. This was one of the first weapons I got from the original King's Fall raid, and, although I used it at the time, as soon as I got something better I sharded it and never looked back. i suggest you do the same.
