The Last Word

Exotic Hand Cannon Kinetic

"Yours, until the last flame dies and all words have been spoken." —Shin Malphur to you, as you journey forth into the unknown Read Lore

Knew this day would come, and with it, one last lesson… There's an end to all things, kid. Good and bad. Sure, the best times seem small, and the bad tend to linger, but the only permanent is eternity. I'm off to meet it. If you're lucky, someday you will too. For now, though, you've got road yet traveled and lives yet lived. I know you got hate in you. Most do. Trick is to use it, 'stead of it usin' you. But you know this—vengeance is a motivator, not the motive. Meant to—hoped to—say these words to you one last time in person, but writin' 'em down seems the safe bet with the prey we're trackin'. Worst part about bein' a good guy? As much as you may want it, you can't always win. But that truth don't bother me. We do the right thing, 'cause the right thing needs doin'. So, when another does harm—casts their shadow upon you or your kin—you go 'head and hunt for the justice needed to answer any sins inflicted. Don't hunt 'em 'cause you been wronged. Hunt 'em 'cause what they did was wrong. There's a world of difference there, kid. One makes you selfish. The other makes you a hero. And I see a hero in you. And with this last good lesson, a gift. I know it feels right in your hand—its weight easy, its trigger smooth. Use it as you will—I know you'll use it right. It's yours now, 'til the last flame dies and all words've been spoken. 'Til that time. Safe journeys. Straight aim. And good huntin'. J. —A letter to Shin Malphur from his third father, Jaren Ward, written before Ward's ill-fated showdown with the infamous Dredgen Yor in the wooded hollow beyond Beggars' Gulch

The only HC in the game where u want to hipfire at longer ranges (console recoil)

TLW is such a fun weapon.But for console users like me ,it kicks like a mule.So you have to adapt and learn how to cancel/avoid the bloom effect.Push at shotgun range and hip-fire by taping manually the trigger.Pair it with quickdraw beloved/apostate and have fun.(Lucky pants and ophidian,both have great synergy with TLW)

If you wanna rule in PvP you'll need this HC.

At close range this thing is an absolutely nightmare capable of putting down shotgun apes with ease. Even at medium range it's TTK is still the nuts. Honestly, it should probably be nerfed a bit, maybe a reduction in body shot TTK. At the moment it's one of the best primaries for PVP in the game, especially paired with a sniper like Beloved.

Best pvp primary.

If I were a ranger I'd sure as hell choose this thing to be my big iron on my hip.

If this gun wasn't so great, I'd use it just for the look and feel all the time outside of PvE.

Perfect for short ranges.You need to play very agressive with this weapon, and get closer to enemy or just bait the enemy, let them come to you.
