Lore

The Chaperone

"My mother had a shotgun we called the Chaperone. Kept us alive out there before we got to the City." —Amanda Holliday

"The Last Safe City doesn't exist."

That's what her parents said when Nora Jericho was young. Almost as often as they said, "I'll die before I leave this land."

Nora believed them. She never had a reason not to.

She never forgot the moment she learned her mother could be wrong. It was her tenth birthday.

The same day the four-arms finally breached the bunker that had stood for hundreds of years. The same day a knight in scratched and dented armor fought them off—but not before cruel electric blades sheared through the metal orb hovering at his shoulder.

Nora helped him recover the jagged shreds of a shell. Confused but unquestioning, she helped him bury the pieces.

In thanks, he told her of the Last Safe City. Gave her a map and a shotgun, told her, "good luck," and then walked off into the desert alone.

Nora's mother didn't have room in her life for the upending of worlds. She stayed, along with half the bunker folk, in the desert.

Nora left the next day.

With Raodborn and the 30% damage increase slugs got in PvE, Chaperone is no longer restricted to just crucible. It is a viable, single target DPS option now.

In PvP, its still the Chaperone lol. One of the most High Risk, High Reward guns in the game. You will map people if you can consistantly hit headshots, but if you cant you will most likely lose most gun fights

With the road born active, I have noticed a hidden perk within the road born trait, a reload speed increase. Am I the only one who noticed this?

Fantastic range. Being precise pays off!
1
With the recent 30% damage buff to all slug shotguns, what was once a crucible only weapon, now shines in PvE.
In PvE, it can deliver surprisingly high damage even to bosses. Now, I can safely say it can be worth the exotic slot in PvE.
In PvP, It's the chaperone. You know what it does.
1
In PvE, it's not the strongest of options, but it *is* very fun, blowing off enemy heads left and right. And it's still strong period.

In PvP, it has a much longer kill-range than other shotguns, at the cost of taking heaps more skill to aim. Most people don't use it for this reason, but if you bother to learn it, you will love it.

With Intrinsic Perk "Roadborn", and with the recent 30% buff for this family of shotguns in PvE, this thing does more DPS than Xenophage. Need I say more? In PvP, you can gget kills at some insane ranges, but it has a steep learning curve.

A tier 1 PVP weapon for sure. Not that hard to hit the headshot and it's one hit kill from such a long range. Hot garbage in PVE though. Low ammo and not great for bosses or ad clear.
0
Great for skilled aimers in PVP, it's ok in PVE.

y I k e s, also in pve nice dmg prob wouldn't use most likely

For PvE this shotgun is good for killing a red bar enemy, then you could use it against yellow bar while The Roadborn perk is active.
But The Chaperone is mainly usable in the Crucible. But you need to get close up. (Maybe because it is a shotgun.) But it is usable at a further range than most shotguns. The downside is that you have to hit precision hits with it. If you hit a bodyshot you are most likely already dead by the other player.

Train your aim and run 2 shotgun scavengers to absolutely demolish in PvP. Very good with middle tree nightstalker or with a warlock running empowering rift with lunafactions. In PvE outclassed by other better shotguns.
-3
not great in pve ikelos outshines it, defiantly more focused on pvp, it rewards a skilled hand with OHK ranges of 16 meters without the perk active
