"Nothing kills a Guardian faster than another Guardian." —The DrifterRead Lore

Yes, I wrote you a note. I want you to burn this in your memory. If you're wielding this gun, I've already told you all this and more. But I want you to keep it fresh in mind. I want you to have this. You may need it. You and I have done a lot together in this system, and I hope and pray we'll get to do a lot more. It'll be a lot safer with you wearin' one of these. It's the culmination of a lot of things. Long time ago I set out to find a replacement for a weapon called Thorn. This will never be that, but to me, it's better. We built it together. And all of us, with this in hand? Even the Man with the Golden Gun should have pause. Maybe we can't out-shoot him. Maybe he can't be out-shot. But if we all take our shot together? We don't have to beat him to it. He'll die, too. Remember this. For when the day comes. —The Drifter

My favorite gun in the entire game.

My favorite hand cannon in the game at the moment. Could use a little more range but the impact makes up for that.

I love this hand-cannon. One thing that i noticed is when you kill a enemy the slugs in them still explode. so it pretty decent when it comes to clearing small guys. Its special perk also does amazing damage to stronger enemies too. The damage is more than a body shot but a little less that a critical hit. so it is like you hit the thing 5 times in the head at once including the damage dealt by the 5 real shots. so over all out of a 1-10 I give the Malfeasance a 8.

All it takes is a touch of malfeasance.

A solid HC if u suck with other HC options that require very good aiming and tracking. This weapon could 5 taps kill w/o precision dmg and ignore all range drop off with the 5 tap debuff kills. I seriously doubt those who criticize its range whether they simply never used this weapon or just being plain stupid..

My go-to Gambit and Reckoning exotic gun. Tears into any Taken no matter how much higher they are than my character level.

Malfeasance is so underestimated in crucible, the no recoil is amazing.
