"This is crazy! You don't need this thing. I can heal you; that's my whole job." "I thought your job was to state the obvious." "What?" "Oh, come on. Ever since you found me, it's been, 'Watch out, Fallen ahead!' when they're right in front of me. Or, my favorite: 'Seems like the door's locked.' Is it? Really? I couldn't tell. And when it's not that, you say I need to be more self-sufficient in case we lose the Light again. So here's my answer. Here's the remedy." "I was just trying to help."

Was my go-to gun in ranked crucible. The extra heath regen that you get from using this gun is similar to devour on the warlock.

Pairs greatly with Arc Battery and Wormhusk! You better believe Crimson has a place in the meta right now because it wrecks.

After the buff at least it is usable, if you have the catalyst, complete it, and it will have ridiculous range... Headshots are 31 damage while bodies are 20, though it's hard to land full burst headshots. Your opponents' gun will flinch a lot if you land a full burst, and that gives you huge advantage in mid-range.In PvE, this weapon is not good enough for output damage(just take your Izanagi for that), but in events like blind well or escolation, it keeps you alive.

Ez kills in pvp. Good for picking people off one at a time or duels, but not good in groups.

If you need to get health in a pinch, that's it's only real use sadly. I wanted to love it, but it's per-bullet damage is extremely low forcing you to rely on landing the entire burst. Worse than almost every other hand-cannon and pulse rifle that I've used. Ironically, useful for The Last Word's exotic quest.
