Dead Man's Tale

"Long, short, they all end the same way." —Katabasis

Gaelin-4's war beast leads us through balmy Venusian jungle. Our rifles low, our Ghosts high in the canopy like sentry drones.

"My vehicle is old. Needs maintenance. Been running too long without cutting the engine," I say.

Gaelin sends me a sideways look. "That shipwright still around? She used to make cider in the autumn. I swear, she kept us like a pack of strays."

I sigh. "No, I mean this thing." I run my hand over my body. "Besides, you know I can't go back there." I straighten the leather wrap around my Tex-foundry rifle.

"You know I literally tune myself, right?" asks the Exo Hunter.

"Why? You're immortal."

"And you're not?"

"I know, but I'm… slower. I feel slower."

"Uh huh."

"Just not like what I used to feel like. Not… spry. Not up here either." I tap my helmet.

"Tragedy. I feel for you. Have Gilgamesh tune you then."

I chuckle. "Yeah… he'd love that."

"You two having issues again?"

I shake my head in a stiff, narrow lie. "You think we come back the same every time?"

"I do. Straight from the manufacturer ," Gaelin-4 says.

"Sometimes I get the feeling… something's different."

Gaelin stops and squints at me.

I dip my head and let my hood fall forward. "Nothing I can put my finger on, just little things. Adjustments."

"You think he's changing you?" Gaelin's voice sounds more serious than surprised.

I wait too long to answer. It's not because I don't know my answer, but because I want to feel like I still doubt it. I raise my head. Gaelin meets my eyes and looks up to the canopy.

He leans his shoulder into me and drops his voice to a whisper. "My Clip's a good one, but you need to realize Ghosts don't know anything. Nobody does. They're just like us. They get curious. They question. If you think something's coming unwound, you need to sit down and talk it out."

"Wait… did Clip change yo—"

"Please," Gaelin scoffs. "You're paranoid." He turns to keep walking and calls back, "Life changes you. Same with them. I'm the only one that stays the same."

Gaelin raises a fist and we stop. His war beast sniffs the air and turns us east. We continue walking.

"What'd you name the beast?"

"Castus."

"You've been reading too many of the Spider's books ."

"Some of 'em are good."

I laugh. "Aren't you the man that said anything you got tying you down can be made into a noose?"

"Yeah, some time ago."

"You've been taking a lot of jobs with him ? Those Fallen?"

"You're one to talk, Emperor's lackey . Some of those Eliksni aren't so bad."

since i cant remove my own review, WOOOO GUNS AMAZING
19
dont review guns you dont have. with that said WOO VORPAL
14
Hehe cowboy gun go pew pew
12
I take it back just the reload animation makes this gun awesome, definitely a great scout, I regret saying it's boring
11
this shit is goddamn cracked in pvp it's unreal
8
with anti-barrier mod on scouts this season this thing will be really really good with vorpal in things like grandmasters. If the catalyst is anything noteworthy it might become a staple in my inventory. also good in PVP. can eventually get 2 tap headshot kills.
6
This is the funnest gun in the game, dust off the squires, fire up the engines, we are full space cowboys now!

Ok really, PvP this thing rocks, pairs well with a shotty or other close range gun.

PvE the easy or hitting and killing every red bar at range, and chunking even higher health enemies, pair with sundering gaze (season perk) and enjoy. Hunter need more exotics that pair with guns like this.

A scout rifle that fires like a hand cannon and loads like a shotgun. 3 taps at 90m and 2 taps at 75m. Godly.
3
as soon as i got this beauty my titties grew 10 sizes
2
In PvE it feels really nice to use. I'll be aiming to have 1 each for Quickdraw, Vorpal, and 4th Time's The Charm for different uses in PvE. Other PvP peeps will be able to recommend the PvP rolls.
Tbh, you can't really go wrong with the perks, but I'd suggest to avoid Outlaw since the weapon already has a built in Rapid Hit like perk for reloading.
2
Love Tex Mechanica weapons, and this might be my favorite. It's one of the most flavorful weapons Bungie has ever made. I love how it fires, I love the reload, I love the little whistle when you hit max stacks. It helps that it positively rips.
2
Lever Action Scout rifle - THAT SAYS IT ALL
2
so fun just got it 10 minutes ago. amazing in crucible.
2
Jesus Christ this gun is awesome. In PvP it's a monster and with Outlaw or Snapshot Sights it will be unstoppable. I can see a couple crazy PvE rolls too. Subsistence for add clear will be pretty awesome because you won't need to reload ever, 4th Time's The Charm/Vorpal for DPS. I'm already in love with this gun and can't wait to get some of those god rolls. Really recommend getting it, especially because the mission is crazy good.
1
this gun takes some time to get, but oh boy does it feel good! great in PvP and PvE.
1
Rootin' tootin' cowboy rifle awww yeah! Probably will be a niche pick but i'm using it all the time
1
This rifle will not be removed from my person. Really good in PvP and Gambit. Kinda niche in PvE.
1
This thing absolutely slaps in PvP, its super consistent and has 2 tap potential with a damage buff. In PvE its a very good barrier weapon, being able to 1 shot barrier champions shields with vorpal weapon (when your on level and have the perk at x5) Its also just all around a very fun weapon that feels extremely satisfying to use.
1
Incredible rifle right here. Most rolls can be very good. Subsistence and FTTC are both very good and reward accuracy, and Killing Wind and Moving Target are great for PvP. Not to mention that this gun is SEXY AS HELL. Say what you want about Tex Mechanica, but all their weapons are a beautiful.

If all scout rifles were as good as this, scout rifles would be Meta.
1
Overall very nice PVP weapon. Really can't go wrong with any of the perks on here asides from Vorpal maybe? I rolled mine with outlaw and armor piercing and I have to say it feels fantastic in PVP.
1
Desinently not an endgame pve weapon but in pvp, easily one of the best guns out there if not the best in my opinion. Its a 3 shot kill in most cases. Definenly worth picking up even the base version.
0
Cool looking and fun to shoot rifle. when the rendom rolls will be available 4th times the charm/outlaw will be my shit coz it reloads only 2 bullets at the time.
0
I don't have the random roll version yet, but oh boy is this thing CRISPY. I've been popping off with it in the crucible, it decimates 120 hand cannons in 1v1s, and has no recoil. In PvE I love it, but I doubt that it'll be top tier there.
