"I call it the Zhang Fei. It hits almost as hard as I do." —Wei Ning Read Lore

Wei Ning punched the mountain. It moved. A microscopic shudder, but enough to make her punch it again. “They're just angry that you keep winning without a gun.” Her Ghost danced fretfully around her fist. “That's why they say these things. Jealousy.” “I tell you,” Ning grunted, shattering granite, “someday they'll lose their smart guns and fancy ships, and then they'll wish they'd listened! There's one weapon you can always count on, and it's your strong hand.” “Eriana would be sad to hear you dismissing machines.” Her Ghost bobbed slyly up to her shoulder. “Eriana would ask if those mighty hands could build a machine in the image of your strength. Just like she was made in the image of a woman.” Wei Ning tapped her fists together. “Huh,” she said.

Great damage against groups, and pretty much infinite ammo. Even against single targets it is still pretty great.

Awesome for PvE and PvP. Just work on your timing for the remote detonation and you will love this thing too. Can't wait to finish the catalyst and get that quick reload speed.

the fact that this uses primary ammo made me fall in love with it pretty quickly

not really a PvP weapon, but it melts anything in PvE. Spend some time getting used to remotely detonating it with trigger control and canceling post-fire delay by reloading right away and there'll be no ads to fear. The weapon truly shines in the hands of a Nezerec warlock, who can fire up to 3 shots mid-air without falling down and risking killing self. Keep in mind all grenade launchers are perfectly accurate from hip-fire.

Simply amazing, as much as I try to mix up my loadout I always seem to fall back on the Lion when it gets really nasty out there. Forges, EP, Vex invasions--this thing will save your life. Master the "remote detonation" of your shot and this gun is unmatched.

This is the single greatest weapon in the game Post-Warmind when it was buffed into godhood. The best primary weapon in the game. All you need is a good Kinetic weapon.

Crazy good for crucible. Banking a kill around the corner is one of the best feelings in there.
