Usage & Description

Despite the stats listed on the item card, in sustained fire the Fatale reaches its peak accuracy faster than most other Hyperion SMGs, even those of similar or higher levels. Its large magazine, high maximum accuracy, and critical hit damage bonus make it an excellent choice for almost any combat situation, especially attaining a Second Wind. Its only real drawback is that it is weak against Cryo-resistant enemies, which are particularly prevalent on True Vault Hunter Mode or higher.
