Fighting Lion

"I call it the Zhang Fei. It hits almost as hard as I do." —Wei Ning

Wei Ning punched the mountain. It moved. A microscopic shudder, but enough to make her punch it again. "They're just angry that you keep winning without a gun." Her Ghost danced fretfully around her fist. "That's why they say these things. Jealousy."

"I tell you," Ning grunted, shattering granite, "someday they'll lose their smart guns and fancy ships, and then they'll wish they'd listened! There's one weapon you can always count on, and it's your strong hand."

"Eriana would be sad to hear you dismissing machines." Her Ghost bobbed slyly up to her shoulder. "Eriana would ask if those mighty hands could build a machine in the image of your strength. Just like she was made in the image of a woman."

Wei Ning tapped her fists together. "Huh," she said.

This is a incredibly fun weapon, and my favorite weapon is all of Destiny. It happens to be one of the few weapons I found that actually takes time to learn and use effectively, and that high skill ceiling makes it that much more fun. The ability to deal damage to enemies behind cover make it amazing when dealing with peakshooters in pvp. If you’re looking for a fun, challenging, and rewarding beast of a weapon, pick the Lion, she won’t disappoint.

I'm sure its a very good gun, I can't seem to kill anyone except myself with it
2
Great in PvP and PvE. "Threat Level" being a Kinetic "Trench Barrel" Shotgun and "Hammerhead" giving us an option for the Power Slot which isn't Exotic and usable helped it shine in PvE too. Hammerhead helps in PvP too. But being unable to use neither "Ace of Spades" nor "Not Forgotten" might be a problem for some people.

Requires skill to use but rewards the loyal. The skill is all in the geometry and landing blind shots.

Lion does not one shot, so it needs a good cleanup gun to pair it with. 110 HandCannons (now 120RPM) will one tap. Sidearms and SMG's are exceedingly good as well.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the lion can be used as the cleanup tool for bows. Bow+lion has exceedingly low TTK's.

There is a huge rabbit hole. For more see r/fightinglion or fightinglion.club

Here's a tip for having fun with this thing: Dawnblade warlock, Attunement of Sky. Go cruising around with this thing and any primary with a burst fire, and now you're a fighter jet. It's a bit tricky to get good with it, but well worth the effort. Haven't especially tested it in PvP, but I've been killed with it enough times to know it can work.
1
It's fun to use once you get the mechanics down but limited ammo and small blast radius lower its effectiveness in PVE. It's fun to use and pretty good in PVP too, you just have to use a quickdraw weapon in your kinetic slot and quickly swap to it after hitting an enemy to finish them off because this does not one shot most of the time.
0
Good for adclear in PVE but not much ammo. Very hard to get used to but when you do, it can be pretty dangerous in Crucible. Bad in gambit.
0
Most fun weapon in the game, with good damage and basically infinite ammo economy.
Also rebounds and remote detonation
0
Amazing in PvP once you get used to the remote detonate. Great in PvE for add clear. Difficult to judge distances at first, but stick with it and you'll love it!
0
Great in both PVP and PVE, hard to control due to explosion release-mode but once mastered it can easily one shot a guardian (if hit directly) and can de-mob very fast at good distances.
Also, having primary ammo makes it staying in my hands 99% of the time. One of the perks gives you ammo when you kill something/someone: god perk.
Nevertheless it's a kinetic weapon, and therefore you won't be able to couple the recluse and the fighting lion, but well give it a chance !
0
Great in pvp with some practice, good in pve
0
I really REALLY want to love this gun BUT its just so underpowered it needs a total revamping I really hope someone on the development team reads this and fixes this gun... give it micro missile, ambitious assassin make it do 210 damage to a direct hit an 105 proximity in pvp because Mtashes review of this weapon is spot on accurate
0
In PvE it's a good grenade launcher. Due to it using primary ammo along with thin the herd, ammo will almost never be an issue. However with special ammo scavenger/finder you can probably be better off using a special ammo grenade launcher and saving the exotic slot. In PvP it's great. You spawn with around 9 shots, giving you a good amount. While it won't one shot on direct hits, it will hurt and can lead to a cleanup kill by you or your teammates, especially with the catalyst.
0
Know the trejectories, know when to detonate, pair it with a shotgun, and you are golden in pvp in maps that are less open. for open maps, go for another option.

PvE wise, you will never run out of ammo if you can get at least a single kill once in a while, does decent damage, but takes up a exotic slot.
0
A very great and fun weapon to use once I learned how to shoot, how and when to detonate the grenades at will.
-1
"It can't one-shot on pvp". Of course it can't, it uses primary ammo. Pair it with a quickdraw handcannon and it's good to go.
Only issue is the archetype relying on double primary loadouts, which makes you very vulnerable on pvp.

On pve... there are better ad clear options sure but if you do double/triple GL build for ammo economy (while swapping exotics) this one can work nicely.
-5
This gun is decent in pve. Hot trash in pvp.
