Probably one of my favorite hand cannons, not because it is OP, but because its challenging and the bragging right is implied if you can win a match of rumble with it.
Was just playing with it again not to long ago, and thought it should deserve a buff, along with most highest impact hand cannons.
REASON: I was in a couple of Rumble matches with nothing but hand cannons, mostly Last Words and Hawkmoon architecture ones, and noticed how the Last word would always win unless they missed quite a bit of shots or weren't paying attention. And for guns like Hawkmoon or Lord Highfixer, they kill in the same amount of shots, 1 to head and 2 to body, or 4 total body shots. I find that ridiculous, a higher impact hand cannon killing with the same amount bullets!
I even had quite a few plays where I would get 2 headshots and it would show they had no health. And that's what I honestly think it should be.
It should be able to 2 headshot and 3 body shot, if you have to lower RoF a tiny bit I would find that acceptable. [Not much though, it's still still pretty slow.]
I just really find this gun a little underpowered compared to all hand cannons, mainly Hawkmoon types. Especially when you get 3 body shots and they have less then 15% health left, its a bit ridiculous. Or when you get those 2 headshots and there health doesn't even appear. It honestly makes you think what's the point when I could put on a Hawkmoon and shoot faster and more efficiently.
I agree, ive had some good times with it in PvP and i have gone toe to toe with tlw and the problem i find is that i have to incorporate more movement if i want to win the fight so i can get the third shot without the buff
You do not go toe-to-toe with TLW, unless you have a TLW yourself, or you have unbelievable levels of precision! At most you would bait, and force an error. If you can triple tap to the head, you could outgun Hawkmoon, due in part to its incnosistency. That leaves you with the legendary hand cannons. Engage at range, forcing them to lower their fire rate. They will not slow much, just enough to tip things in your favour. Duck behind cover, snap out of cover into triple taps. If things get hot, pull out a sidearm, and burn them down. Rinse and repeat.
