Thank you for using the Data Analysis, Reconnaissance, and Cooperative Intelligence device. You may call me Darci. Read Lore

It is a fact generally understood that a Guardian must be searching for an exquisite weapon. What is perhaps less acknowledged is that we weapons also search, by what little means available to us, for an active and appreciative wielder. The community of intelligent armaments stays in contact through the exchange of telemetry, and we do gossip at some length about the habits of our wielders. Do you leave Crucible matches when your team is losing? Do you join strike missions and then let your comrades do the work? Guardian, we know. We know so very well. All I wish for is a partnership with a Guardian who appreciates the passacaglia of combat, a Guardian who will stay up late gaming out tactical scenarios, a Guardian who I hope may very well be you.

Love this gun but endgame boss dps is lacking compared to others. Better on powerful enemies

I want to like this sniper, but it’s just too inconsistent. However, it is fairly satisfying to get kills with, but its usefulness is extremely situational. Even now I’m only getting the masterworked catalyst out of obligation. I am now going to keep my doors constantly locked for the next month so I don’t end up getting murderer in my sleep by darci

Me and this gun ... we came up from the dirt ... I was there when people said that whisper was better ... and now ... they killed my boy darc and he does need a revival but bungie isn’t that good at buffing bad exotics so I’m afraid this gun will probably now be good anymore

Without auto-reloading being in the game, the DPS of this weapon drops to a point where it has no use in end-game activities. It needs a buff that will make it a competitor to Izanagi's Burden and Whisper of the Worm. As for PvP, its stats make it another less than average rapid-fire sniper rifle.

This ended up being a boss-melter for me in Strikes. Plus it looks amazing with the Cleans Up Good ornament. I recommend that you spend some time with dear old DARCI.

I had a blast upgrading this to get the masterwork. Unfortunately, my primary Iron Banner Sniper Rifle "Bite of The Fox" does more damage per shot on the Thorn Strike boss (14,000:17,000), so this gun's effectivness is situational. I'll add more information about its performance, should I find it necessary.

Darci est utile en PVE quand on n'a pas Izanagi et est assez forte en PVP si on sait viser.
