The Recluse

My bite will turn your sweet flesh to vile rot.

An arrow whined out of nowhere. It drove through his shoulder, penetrating his armor as though it were paper, not plasteel.

No enemies on his tracker. So then where—

The second arrow hit harder than the first: straight through his other shoulder, skewering the joint. He twisted his head, saw the arrowhead protruding through his pauldron, chuckled humorlessly, looked through the trees. The asteroids of the Reef did not afford many hiding places, even those which had been terraformed to support plants and animals, so the shooter had to be—

The third arrow penetrated his thigh. He laughed aloud.

"Transmat?" his Ghost suggested, a quiet voice in his mind.

"No. They started this. I'll finish it."

Unable to lift any of his own weapons in defense, concerned that he might compromise his Ghost if he made any attempt to heal himself with the Light, Lord Shaxx began to limp toward the shooter's likeliest vantage.

This was the work of a ballista, he supposed. Dark Age weaponry. Nothing else could hit so hard.

As he tottered along, an Awoken woman in the near distance seemed to rise from the forest floor. She cast aside her camouflage and stood straight. He stopped to gawk. She was as tall as he was, if not taller. Her bow (just a bow! an ordinary bow!) was certainly taller.

"You're trespassing on Awoken territory, Guardian," she called to him. "Declare yourself."

"Who are you?" he asked, astounded.

"I am the Queen's Wrath. Declare yourself. I will not ask again." She raised her bow, drawing it to its full capacity.

He watched in amazement. It was just a bow. And she was just an ordinary Awoken woman! And yet! "You are a tempest," he replied humbly.

In the next instant, she killed him.

It was the start of a beautiful friendship.

PvP: Decent. Good for defending yourself. Easy to chain kills with perk. Solid.

PvM: This is when this weapon shows its true power. This is like breakneck and huckleberry on steroids. Mows through red bars in a split second even without the perk, and with the perk... well.. not even mini-bosses will be left standing for very long. Absolutely the best primary for PvM ever created.

If you're a person who likes SMGS and chaining kills, this is for you.
PvE: its really good for clearing ads and generating orbs since its masterworked by default. With Master of Arms active it can take down majors/orange bars pretty fast
PvP: Its not an automatic winner weapon. If you can use standard SMGs, then you can use this. Its a standard smg until you activate the MoA.
All around very good SMG! If you like running Shotgun/SMG in PvE i'd suggest Threat Level and Recluse paired up
2
Best gun to pair with a sniper in PvE, no cap. Good in PvP, but once Mastery of Arms is activated, it's even better.

Recluse is meta, meta is recluse. You cannot have one without the other
0
The pinnacle perk for this weapon makes it in absolute monster in PvE content. Nothing shreds both minors and majors as fast as this weapon when the pinnacle perk is active. Only drawbacks are that you need be comfortable with being in close engagements with enemies to land your shots with this gun. Also, while ADS, it can take a bit of practice to control it during sustained fire (this may not be the case on PC, but on console, it takes a bit of effort).
0
One of the most easily obtainable pinnacle weapons. Incredibly powerful in PvE, better than breakneck in my opinion. In PvP until master of arms is activated, it requires you to play slightly more passive. Once master of arms is active, you can chain incredible amounts of kills, while in range.
0
Arguably the most dangerous pinnacle weapon while in its effective range. I've never felt more powerful in crucible ever than with this weapon's pinnacle perk active on a close-quarters map. It's what Redrix could have been. Melts in PvE too, haven't even experienced void burn yet.
0
This is a very very good smg
You can chain insane amounts of kills in PvE and PvP, as well as having the highest base stats of any light weight smg.

The recluse is without a doubt one of the best guns I’ve ever used. Once you actually get this gun it is an absolute beast in pvp and Pve. This thing mows adds down and feeding frenzy and master of arms make this thing untouchable in Pve. The case In pvp is a bit different. While this gun is still a beast in pvp you have to be able to get master of arms it you want to mow down guardians but still even without those perks active it’s an amazing gun in pvp.
0
PVE= probably best energy weapon that is not and exotic and only divinity and eriana beats it
pvp = very good once master of arms is active
0
Ignore anyone who rates it 1 star because "it's not their favorite". This weapon is god tier, and it cuts through red bars like butter.
0
PvP ok at defending and attacking.
PVE Great when paired with a sniper and mountain top

I not love this weapon in pve

I not love this weapon in pve and pvp
