Perfect Paradox

A tale that's different from the rest: the thread unfurls against the clocks. The one the Speaker loved the best must have a perfect paradox.

I never found Osiris, but I've killed enough Vex to end a war. And they, in turn, struck a fatal blow: they completed a Mind with the sole function to drain the Light from me. It worked very well.

Don't worry (not that you worry much). It took them centuries to build, keyed to the unique frequency of my Light. And I sit atop its shattered husk.

I mourn that I will never reach the heights you have. To me, you represent everything a Guardian can become. Yours is a thriving City. So different from mine. My whole fourteenth life I fought to make my City yours. I never finished.

All I have left is this weapon. The Cryptarchs say you crafted it yourself, built it out of scraps and Light and sheer will, inside the Infinite Forge. I'll make sure it finds its way back to you. When you gave it to me, I swore I would make it my duty to follow your example.

I'm still trying.

—Saint-14

God tier PVE perk pool. Demolitionist in column 3, rampage or swashbuckler in column 4 is my PVE Godroll. Kills all majors and low-tier bosses in seconds, also allows for fast nade spam. For PVP, slideshot and opening shot are good but this is a rapid-fire frame so you're likely to be one-shot by a Mindbenders or Dust Rock so I don't think it's worth grinding for.

0.077% god roll: full choke, accurized rounds, slideshot, opening shot. only this gun and wishbringer from shaxx can roll this.

For me the best perk roll is barrel shroud tac mag field prep and trench barrel
0
A kinetic one two punch shotgun which is also really easy to farm. Combine this with wormgod caress or synthoceps or liars handshake and you can easily solo things like the whisper quest. It doesn't really matter what other perks you have with a one two punch shotty since the damage is pretty much all coming from the boosted melee damage. For the infinite shotgun ammo build (it does actually exist look it up) you can get a lot of great perks like rampage and swashbuckler.

God tier for PVE. Especially for greneder build. For example: Contraverse Hold + void top tree + 100 discipline + shotgun scavenger + shotgun ammo finder = no need for a primary weapon, just shotgun and grenades. Throw in one or two enhanced ashes to assets and you'll have your super for every other pack of enemies.

I farmed the heck out of this and got Full choke, Light Mag, Slideshot, opening shot and Range MW. Almost a perfect god roll for pvp aside from missing accurized but I also have a wishbringer with the same perks and I absolutely love them. You can lose to some shotties if RNG hits you with every pellet from 8-9M range but if they dont you get that 2nd shot off almost instantly and will always win that shottie battle
0
A twin of threat level but with arguably better perk pool and far easier to farm. Note that this is NOT an ideal crucible shotgun as it lacks all essential pvp perks like snapshot sight or quickdraw. On top of which it is a rapid fire frame and this frame is usually considered the worst shotgun archetype for pvp.
0
I have been using this shotgun for a while and it excels in PVE. I have no opinion on PVP since I rarely use shotguns in PVP and I assume there are better options. The roll I got is corkscrew, light mag, threat detector, and trench Barrel. It isn’t the best of the best rolls but it sure packs a punch and I love it. Overall if you want a good kinetic shotgun with trench, but can’t get threat level, get this one.
0
Just a correction: it absolutely has a masterwork slot.
0
Demolitionist and rampage make this weapon amazing for pve. For some reason (might be because it's a year one wep?), it doesn't have a masterywork slot. But still pretty good! Haven't tried out in pvp tho so :/
0
Great PvE perk pool.

As far as PvP, I feel like this archetype of shotgun is slept on because it doesnt have the flashy one hit kill range that other archetypes have.

There is a lot of RNG in shotguns. Meta shotguns like Mindbender and Dust Rock Blues have the flashy range, but if you dont get the kill in 1 shot you might not survive to get the 2nd shot off. Rapid-fire frames kinda clean that up.

This shotgun is easy to farm and has good PvP perk options in both columns. Get it while you can
0
My God roll is; corkscrew rifling - Tactical Mag - Slideshot - Trench Barrel or One - Two Punch which ever I choose depending the situation, didn't farmed much just got it on my seventh try😅 Good luck Guardians I know u will succeed!
0
It is a farm-able version of Threat Level, which is the best PvE shotgun in the game.
0
Note: It appears the one you get from the quest can not be masterwork, also, it seems certain mods do not work on it. 8 round capacity yet when I added backup mag, no increase.
-1
God roll is: Smallbore/Accurized Rounds/Slideshot/One-Two Punch/Ranged MW

Pretty lucky to have this roll.
