Perfect Paradox

Legendary Shotgun Kinetic
Review Rating
A tale that's different from the rest: the thread unfurls against the clocks. The one the Speaker loved the best must have a perfect paradox. Read Lore

I never found Osiris, but I've killed enough Vex to end a war. And they, in turn, struck a fatal blow: they completed a Mind with the sole function to drain the Light from me. It worked very well. Don't worry (not that you worry much). It took them centuries to build, keyed to the unique frequency of my Light. And I sit atop its shattered husk. I mourn that I will never reach the heights you have. To me, you represent everything a Guardian can become. Yours is a thriving City. So different from mine. My whole fourteenth life I fought to make my City yours. I never finished. All I have left is this weapon. The Cryptarchs say you crafted it yourself, built it out of scraps and Light and sheer will, inside the Infinite Forge. I'll make sure it finds its way back to you. When you gave it to me, I swore I would make it my duty to follow your example. I'm still trying. —Saint-14

Nasty for PvP with right roll. Pve I got demolitionist and one two punch. I run with Gambit shitty also one two punch top tree arc strider and liars handshake. Shoot switch Shotty's shoot then melee. Bosses go bye bye

FullChoke - AccurizedRounds - ThreatDetector (everything else is OK too) - TrenchBarrel + 12Punch with range MW, born FullAuto. OMFG!!! I can't believe this is possible, best shotgun ever made in the history of Destiny!

Slideways is super useful in PvP and PvE and Rampage only helps it. Recommend Range MW

Amazing gun, melts majors in seconds. Love using this thing paired with the recluse on my devour build. Demolicionist is a must-have on this weapon.
