"We have a duty to this solar system that goes deeper than blood, deeper than oaths." —Paladin Devi Cassl Read Lore

Pranav sucks his cheeks between his molars as he considers his options. "Stop that," Devi says, swatting playfully at his hand. "It makes you look stupid." "Ashamed of your stupid brother?" he teases, vacuuming his cheeks even further into his mouth. "Never," Devi says fiercely, forgetting the joke. They fall quiet. Eventually, she reaches for her hand cannon and rises to leave. "Anyway, I… I understand why you left. You've done so much good here." She looks out over the valley that Pranav has protected for the centuries since he left the Reef. "I just wanted to say that, in case…" Pranav is quiet. Then he stands, fetches his rifle. "And I understand why you stayed. I'm coming with you. Assuming Petra welcomes me back." Relief and delight takes Devi's breath away. She throws her arms around him. "She will! She's just a baby, but she's practical, Pranav, you'll see. And anyway, we… There aren't enough of us now to turn away you Earth-lovers. We need all the help we can get."

The single best hand cannon in the game. Slide shot/opening shot with range perks and every other HC feels lackluster.

Dragonfly High Cal Rounds Zen Moment was my go-to for the longest time. It was a sleeper powerhouse of a PVE weapon. Since the adjustments to damage with hand cannons, its not as incredible as it used to be but its still one of my favorite guns. Maybe one day it will be able to headshot vandals again but for now my baby is hurt and i can't abandon it.
