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
24
Hehe cowboy gun go pew pew
21
this shit is goddamn cracked in pvp it's unreal
19
dont review guns you dont have. with that said WOO VORPAL
14
I take it back just the reload animation makes this gun awesome, definitely a great scout, I regret saying it's boring
11
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.
11
as soon as i got this beauty my titties grew 10 sizes
7
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.
6
A scout rifle that fires like a hand cannon and loads like a shotgun. 3 taps at 90m and 2 taps at 75m. Godly.
4
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.
4
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
so fun just got it 10 minutes ago. amazing in crucible.
2
Lever Action Scout rifle - THAT SAYS IT ALL
1
this gun takes some time to get, but oh boy does it feel good! great in PvP and 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
This rifle will not be removed from my person. Really good in PvP and Gambit. Kinda niche in PvE.
1
Feels solid in pvp and i think it would do great in pve too with vorpal on it
1
Really good scout, i've never liked scouts for pve or pvp, but this thing is amazing. It looks crisp, it fires crisp, it has rampage on precicion hit! (sort of speak)

Stacking it's exotic buff is relatively easy in pvp and a good way to keep it going in pve damage wise.

It dropped for me today with Outlaw and I think I've used all my good RNG for the next 2 years as a result.
1
If all scout rifles were as good as this, scout rifles would be Meta.
0
Rootin' tootin' cowboy rifle awww yeah! Probably will be a niche pick but i'm using it all the time
0
Snapshot with flared magwell and duel loader for scout rifles is my personal favorite of the weapon, the thing has almost no recoil, and in PVE it is quite good, though in pvp it could use a damage buff.
0
Feels so good even with the curated roll. Haven't farmed any of the random rolls yet but I am exited. Catalyst is for sure going to put that weapon in a spot in the meta with that perfect hip fire accuracy and faster fire rate. Also makes a sound at 5 stacks that sounds like that one part in that The Good, The Bad and the Ugly song which gives it an instant 5 out of 5 overall
