The Lament

The last thing the Vex ever heard—the grinding wails of a vicious Banshee.

FROM THE DESK OF CLOVIS BRAY

Dear… me.

For one who has delved into some of the greatest secrets science has to offer, you would think I'd find speaking with oneself rather monotonous. However, this very letter represents a successful culmination of all I have worked to achieve.

You'll have questions, no doubt. Hopefully by now, the AI has answered most of them.

Except one: Why?

Legacy, of course.

…Is the answer you'd expect from me. And rightfully so. It's not wrong, but it's only part of the story.

Frankly, I'm alarmed. For all my successes in scientific research, I have lacked any substantial findings of an afterlife. All I can find is death. An infinite nothingness. No remembering my loved ones, no seeing them again. No feeling their touch, or hearing their voices.

In my pursuit of eternity in this reality, I have foregone those niceties. Abandoned them. But you are a second chance. An opportunity to continue what I started, and hopefully in time, make amends with those I've wronged.

Attached to this letter, you will find a gift. A blade built just for you.

Keep it close. Never let anyone else take it. Stay alive.

For legacy.

The Falling Guillotine has fallen to it's knees, bowing down the new king.

RIP AND TEAR, UNTIL IT IS DONE

You pretty much become Nero from DMC4, Does great damage, sounds cool, looks cool, is cool.

The Lament is the new heavy weapon damage king in PVE. It simply erases bosses. Just rev up the sword and swing away - it's honestly kind of shocking just how much damage it does. I worry that Bungie will nerf the damage soon, so enjoy it while you can. It also looks and sounds really cool. Just a fantastic new exotic all around.

Pretty fun weapon. Hold the guard key to rev, and there is a specific combo to get higher dps: 2 light attacks, then a heavy attack. The hits are crits, and do seemingly high dps. Does higher than a normal heavy attack, that's for sure. It's a chainsaw, ffs. In PVP, it's a sword. You might as well use a legendary one and use ace or thorn.
1
Jeez all I gotta say not enough stars for this thing to give. There's a new sword champ in town. Time to retire falling guillotine to the weapon graveyard for now
1
An absolute beast both damage and aesthetic-wise. Would save the monster that is Clovis Bray I again.
1
Sword go brrrrrr, enemy go bye bye
1
Very cool sword
Quest is simple, effective weapon, enable perk and use as easy as shelling pears
The only problem I found is that it takes an exotic slot, which will not allow you to take another set
1
considering the sword nerf to guillotine, lament and all the other ones, this thing is still top tier, you wanna fight a boss, go right ahead, season of the chosen amps it up with the seasonal mod "Passive Guard" and you can pair it with strongholds for instant health regen when blocked at the right time and near-infinite sword guard time, if you legit want that damage for free, put on charged with light mods and "Lucent Blade"
1
Also known as "Fuck your health" the weapon.


Seriously, this thing Alt-F4's everything. Primeval? Gone. Riven? Get fucked. Strike bosses? Don't even have to try. Wanted Enemies? May as well be a red bar.
1
One word. Chainsword. Destroying champions with this makes me feel like Dorn wrecking Aplharius using his colossal chainsword. Still love it even though it got nerfed.

RIP AND TEAR, UNTIL IT IS DONE!!!!

Amazing DPS weapon for PVE: but do keep in mind that, with it being an exotic, there will still be times where Falling Guillotine is preferable.
In PVP, the extra damage is not worth your exotic slot. If you really want an PVP heavy exotic, use Xenophage. otherwise, use a legendary sword and a real PVP exotic.
0
This sword outclasses any other close-quarters DPS option. Even when you're not in a raid, this thing slaps enemies so hard that it properly cooks them. I haven't found anything outstanding about it in PvP, however, but I might be proven wrong.
0
Pro Tip: Aerial combos do way more DPS. Jump and then do the combo or spam light attacks.

Don't waste the exotic slot for PvP, however. Use Bequest, Gilloutine, Hook, or Black Talon instead.

It cuts more than just potatoes.

Big dick dps + lifesteal. 'nuff said

Falling Guillotine: You took everything from me

Lament: I don't even know who you are

This sword is crazy for Champions and other big bosses!
0
It's like using a chainsaw to cut a cake.
0
Absolutely shreds everything in its path unlike anything you've ever experienced. A perfect combination of fun to use and consistently viable if not compulsory. One of my favorite weapons, and the acquisition quest is an overall good time.

Even nerfs can't kill this God slayer

Now I get to RP as a Space Marine wielding space magic
