Special Weapon Effects
We pay you back... with interest! – Large magazine size. Increased fire rate. Damage and fire rate increase the longer the trigger is held (similar to Maliwan lasers).
Usage & Description
The Machine is a sniper rifle that is both powerful and very costly to use. It has a high fire rate that continues to increase as it is fired, and therefore rapidly consumes sniper rifle ammunition. Its huge magazine size helps its damage potential, as it takes a long time before it needs to be reloaded in the middle of a fight.
Characters that have access to skills or class mods that grant ammo regeneration can increase the Machine's effectiveness/cost ratio significantly. The Lemon Lime & Bullets Moxx-tail can also assist with ammunition replenishment.
- The Machine initially could not legitimately spawn in-game. It was first made available as a SHiFT reward during New Year 2016, and a hotfix released January 25th 2016 added The Machine as a world drop, meaning it has a small chance of appearing from any suitable loot source including weapon vending machines as Item Of The Day.
