Grave Robber/Swashbuckler is a lot of fun, especially if you pair it with an Ophidia Hunter. Throw some knives, get a full stack of Swashbuckler and reload your ammo. Melt a major, throw more knives, repeat. :)

If youre still farming for a good mindbenders or you need your energy slot for something else then this is a great replacement. what im currently running is full choke / accurized rounds / threat detector / snapshot sights.
threat detector gives you amazing handling to make up for it not being able to roll quickdraw and snapshot allows you to make better use of full choke in flinchy situations which happens pretty often in 4k+ glory matches.

I got a great roll on this: Barrel Shroud, Tactical Mag, threat detector, and trench barrel, along with a range MW. This gun is a jack of all trades. Not only is it great for cleaning out adds and majors that swarm you, but it also shreds bosses. Along with a backup mag spec the clip carries six shots at a time. And with threat detector added it reloads crazy fast. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that it’s only effective in close range situations.

Slideshot moving target fullchoke is disgustingly good in pvp, as you can map people with ease. The only issue i have with this gun are the sights which can cause me to miss sometimes but with use i can get better with this. I also have a graverobber trench barrel assault mag roll which is good but there are better options like mountaintop for dps and loaded question for majors

On paper and in use a kinetic version of Mindbender's Ambition (only real difference is 5 less reload). Bigger perk variety allows rolling for a PvE roll and the increased farmability makes getting a good PvP roll MUCH easier.

Basically just a kinetic Mindbender's ambition with slightly lower reload speed, less recoil, and WAY better perks, plus it's farmable and you can guarantee a range/handling masterwork. Even with the first roll I got, I was doing decent with it in PvP. I have yet to get a good pve roll, but based on Ehroar's video on its DPS, it's pretty good compared to other shotguns. (Loaded Question is still way better for PVE)

Basically a kinetic Mindbender's. Very solid in PvP, great range and perk variety along with excellent farmability (menagerie). Perk choices would be Full Choke / Accurized Rounds / Slideshot / Rampage (or Moving Target) / Range masterwork. In PvE, few shotguns see much use apart from ikelos, threat level and acrius, but imperial decree is definitely good. Only downside would be its inability to roll quickdraw, which is a must on hunters who cannot anim cancel.

This gun is slept on in PvP. While I’m sure you’re better off using Threat Level in PvE, this gun can roll like the same rolls. If that isn’t enough for you, aggressive frames fire faster after a kill.

In PvP this thing is just the kinetic mindbenders, without the QuickDraw of course. You could argue that Astral is better, but this gun has a spot saved in my loadout.

Kinetic mindbenders, full choke/accurized rounds/slideshot/rampage(or swash) make it an amazing choice, especially now since it pairs well with hard light. High farmability paired with amazing perks makes it a jack of all trades shotgun.

I didn’t mean to write two reviews at once.

This gun's curated roll (look above if you're on Light.gg) is crazy. A Nonstop mix of melees and shotgun shells. If you like Trench Barrel, this weapon is for you. If you like Grave Robber, this weapon is also for you. I would actively grind for the Curated roll.
-26
This weapon fails to secure a place in any top-tier build. in pve it's damage per shot is very nice however it's actual DPS is significantly less than that of the Rapid Fire shotguns. In pvp it's overall range makes this gun feel much weaker than other Aggresive shotguns like Mindbender's Ambition, I honestly recommend sticking with your Dust Rock Blues in your kinetic slot in pvp and your Threat Level in pve.

I'm testing out a theory about Swashbuckler:
Rampage stacks are shared with other weapons with Rampage. Wondering if Swash does the same thing too.
I.e. Rampage x3 and then switch to another Rampage weapon and it keeps the stacks.
