It’s a great gem but rare because it can barely compete if I could list possible changes to improve it I’d love them to be taken into consideration. 1. Increase the precision and body damage of 340 Rpm pulses. To guarantee a kill on 2 burst no matter the resilience and a 5 shot 1 body anyone 6 or below. (There was an edit here as I changed it from 4 crit 2 body after a reasonable suggestion) 2. Allow desparado to proc immediately upon killing an enemy. However allow it to still require a precision kill. 3.Replace outlaw with feeding frenzy Or give it a faster base reload and Zen Moment. 4. Increase range of all 340 rpm pulses. They should reach out equal to Aggressive frame. 5. Replace the sights. They are far to clunky. Make them a bit smaller. 6. Increase the overall magazine. (This ties into #2) 7. Increase the base handling. (Edit: I’d like the weapon to feel as if sprint grip is on it if that isn’t too much. The reason I say this is because once desparado activates it feels off having such a high rate of fire with such a sluggish weapon) Edit: Thank you all for your comments and support. I am glad I can see different viewpoints from other perspectives. I would also like to clarify that these changes are from a [b]console[/b] perspective. This isn’t to say that PC opinion isn’t viable, but that PC and Console are so fundamentally different that there is no fair comparison b/w the two.
As an owner of the claymore, I think that it should be made an exotic and automatically given to those who got it and for those who only have the broadsword they should have to do a quest for it. The exotic version would have much better range, stability and recoil and some kind of buff to desperado like a damage + fire rate buff. In the end everyone would still keep their og CLAYMORE but they could also choose to use the much better exotic version.
