"We didn't have linear fusions in the Dark Age. But we made it work." —The Drifter

"Nah. Dark Age version was better."

"You and I remember the Dark Age differently."

"I'll take a hard projectile over energy any day. No better way to make sure the target is dead."

"Energy is for silencing barriers. Fists are all I need to administer blunt-force trauma."

"I forget you used to be a Warlord."

"What do you mean 'used to?'"

"I thought you'd thrown in with Saladin and Felwinter."

"I did. But I never stopped being me."

"Then why—"

"'Warlord' is too many syllables."

"Gambit needs more candidates like you. Should stop by sometime. Whatever you want to call yourself."

"Thank you. You're a liar and a cheat. Stay out of my Crucible."

Ever since Season of Dawn, my life hasn't been the same.
I'm still haunted by getting constantly Arbamolested.
The sound of it charging-up plagues my dreams.
I tremble and shake at the memory of it, such that I cannot walk without supports.
And even so, the sight of my crutches remind me of this unholy gun.

6/10 it's ok i guess.
4
Absolutely incredible in PVE, the end all to all majors. Amazing in PVP but the slow charge rate hurts it when compared to deadlier fusions.
2
When I first got it, i thought it was near-useless cause most weapons can just break shields anyway, then i realised that it could completely counter Match Game (Enemy shields take greatly reduced damage if hit with a non-matching elemental type), my least favourite Mission Modifier. That theory went on to be extremely successful, and its now my go to weapon when going in 1300+ Nightfalls, Legendary Lost Sectors and Harbinger.
1
PvE: Outstanding for any Nightfall activity or encounter with shielded enemies. The increased damage from Distortion Break leads to very low TTK on majors.

PvP: Very long charge time makes it tricky to use, Distortion Break can't be used to its full potential. You'd be better served with a shotgun or sniper rifle.
1
Very good in PvE. Say goodbye to those shanks in Zero Hour, they won't annoy you much longer. In PvP, it's a very good gun, but the long charge will definitely make this gun harder to use. This thing shreds in Gambit, especially on Invasions. Overall, very cool and sexy gun.
1
PVE - Great job mainly to break shield on the new quest
pvp + gambit = you are the boss with this
1
Amazing gun in every mode. Destroys majors and is the king of medium-long range in PVP
1
In PvE, this thing is exactly as good as you'd expect; it smashes almost any enemy's shield in one hit. It also does ridiculous damage on its own, but only if you hit an enemy's head.

In PvP, it's just a Sniper Rifle with a charge-up time. That being said, it's your best option for getting the Komodo since Special ammo is more plentiful than Power.
1
Nutty in PvE, busted in PvP. 20/10 pls nerf
0
roaming supers dont exist if you have this thing on you with mediocre aim
0
Had a change in Beyond Light where it now works against Match Game shields.
0
This weapon is great in pve, it takes out shielded enemies easily and getting consecutive precision hits against bosses lowers their hp by a good amount
But in pvp, I can't really recommend this unless you're very good at getting precision kills, but body shots leave enemy players with very low hp so just swap to your energy weapon and finish them
0
Definitely good in PvE, great against majors and match game enemies.

In PvP, this thing is a nightmare. I'm not sure how it is on PC but on console this thing has the biggest hotbox in the game. It's charge time is relatively low compared to other linear fusions which makes it even more competitive. It's a sniper rifle that has a low zoom, huge hotbox and pre-fire capability. This is one of the EASIEST special weapons to use in the game. Pls nerf bungo.
0
This gun obliterates everything in PVE. Very convenient to use in The Whisper, Zero Hour, Scourge of the Past, Leviathan and most strikes or raid missions.

It's no Aggressive Frame sniper in PVP but not quite a bad choice as a backup for your auto rifle, hand cannon and SMG.
0
a sniper that doesn't obey sniper rules
0
Sniper rifle that cuts supers and makes people sad.


Thundercrash mains galore!
0
Fits exactly the niche it's supposed to. Feels nice and snappy, and smears shielded majors. Charge time is pretty quick. Pokes Guardians in Crucible nicely if you can account for the charge time.
0
PvM: Does what it's supposed to.

PvP: Flinches just as hard or worse than a sniper and requires timing your shot and using tracking aim, just use a sniper.

and the shaxx vs drifter tabs kool too am i right!

Looks to be the solution to Match Game in Nightfall strikes. Who needs optimized loadouts when you can run a gun that breaks all shields.
