Bastion

Exotic Fusion Rifle Kinetic
Review Rating
"The final stand is wherever I plant my feet. Not one step more." —Saint-14 Read Lore

My son. You are a bastion of hope for all who are lost in darkness. Let this consecrated armament offer protection in times of trial, strength when you feel most alone, and guidance when there are no roads. Your Light will shine on to lead our people into peace. Let this be a symbol of our dedication to their future. Know that I am proud. —Father The epitaph is barely readable, appearing to have been scraped almost clean from the frame. Below the stricken words, five hash-marks are engraved into the weapon. A small etching in Eliksni reads: ||||| "dead… little… thieves…"

The most average exotic I currently have, but still has some fun to mess around with in the current sandbox. It sure says what it does on the box, so I didn't get my hopes up on it being the "Big Damage One Shot Boss Phase" gun that some people expect exotics to only be. Some exotics sacrifice damage output for survivability (Crimson, Riskrunner, Suros), utilitarian/situational (Eriana's Vow, Devi's Ruin, Lumina, Rat King, Tractor Cannon), but there are some that are just straight-up damage dealers (Whisper, Prospector, Thorn, Outbreak Perfected). If I were to put Bastion in a category, I would place it in "Situational," for its shield + health breaks. And I can live with that.

Solid choice in PvP; you'd get better range out of a Main Ingredient, even, but this thing's consistency is unparalleled at shorter ranges, and the charge time is quick enough to go on rampages with this thing. PvE, on the other hand... it definitely needs a bit of a buff.

People review bombing this thing when it's actually really good and really consistent, don't listen to naysayers, use it for yourself and find out.

Good god people stop review bombing this thing just because the quest didn’t give you what you wanted. Not everything can be a freebie, not everything can be broken, not everything can be god tier. This gun is amazing, unique, and is what fusions should be. It has a fun factor that you don’t get with erentil, LoW, or a shotgun and can do many things both can’t. This gun cannot be compared as it’s in a league of its own. It does a damn good job at what it’s meant to do so stop pooping on it.

God tier "shotgun" that wreck everything in PvP. Close range though and needs a bit of buffing but most of the fusion rifle genre needs a nerf if anything.

This thing wrecks house in PVP! How is it getting bad ratings?!?! Dominates at mid-close range. Shuts down shotgunners and will take out a full super. Loving it!

This thing MELTS. Great for shielded enemies, insane damage output, pretty good reload speed. Only downside is range tbh. Otherwise, dope ass gun with sick lore.
