You see this man? This man is a living Legend. He is perhaps the most famous Hunter in the galaxy. Hunting down creatures ranging from living glaciers to Lesser Orion Terrorsaurs. He’s getting on the years, yeah. He’s not as fast as he once was, yeah. But, is he still the best damn Hunter this side of the Milky Way? Hell yeah he is, and he’s packing heat.
You see this? This is the AHAB Sure Stop Model G Harpoon Gun. Accept no substitutes. This thing in the hands of an expert can, deny traversals, force Krakens to the ground, grab an invisible Wraith, or take pet Behemoth’s for a walk. It is skill and timing based CC. You can run down beasties for dozens of meters with this beauty. You know it’s perfect. It’s instinct.
The Gauss SMG. 36 Rounds per clip of pure pain. Other Trappers weapons may be better in bursts or at ultra long range, but the SMG is the single most versatile weapon in any Trapper’s arsenal. Monster is 80 meters out? Stand still and unload with near perfect precision, and if he’s up close feel free to dance around him while maintaining perfect hip fire accuracy. This weapon has spirit, it has kick, and it will unleash that on any poor son’uva gun that dares step in its way. Just look at the sights on this thing. Magnificent.
Abe has darts, Crow has Gobi, Jack has a scanner, and Maggie has Daisy. Griffin has spikes. Maybe not as flashy as Jack or annoying as Abe’s darts… The monster dies the little death with these bad boys. You going loud? Wonderful, these suckers got 60 meters of detection range, that’s right, two of them can cover the entire middle half of Broken Hill Foundry. Sneaking around? Fine, be that way. The moment you make a mistake… Leap to far for a sneak pounce, stand up to smack a reaver, or breathe in the wrong direction Griff will be there. He will slowly, methodically, like the expert hunter he is, take away all your options. Going into the caves? Nope, this hoss has a raw 15 meter detection range. No cowering around it if it’s in your way.
You’re gonna get tagged and bagged like all the rest. Don’t run, you’ll just die tired and with a harpoon in your bum.
((On a more serious note))
IMO, he has perhaps the most magnificent toolkit out of any trapper. My only complaint, besides the seeming fact that you need to aim a little up and to the left with the harpoon, is that it takes a long time to switch between the SMG and Harpoon. I feel like I am pigeonholed into either doing CC or DPS. Griffin falls behind Maggie when it comes to doing both CC and DPS at the same time, but when he commits to one he does it better than anyone.
