It's just bad, no Tau-useless, but pretty awful.

I get kills all the time with the Tau on my Kal-7 loadout, it's a really good weapon for a pistol.

 

But you're right in the Raffica needing a bit more accuracy because aiming the thing has abysmal results compared to blind firing it. Out of all the guns I prefer it to finsh off targets after I've wounded them with another weapon, which is why I use it with the dragon if I ever get into a bad situatuion.

 

I rarely see the Raffica, and maybe the Tau has had a tad bit more increase in popularity, but it is no where near as popular as the para or Micro. It's just those pistols are SO easy to use, and the reward for being skillful with the Raffica is little to none. The Tau can be wonderful if you land one handshot. But the Raffica is in my opinion the least rewarding.

Btw, whose character Raffica is neat to use? Thinking of using one. Tired of Marlowe.

I'd say Ramses. Elena has blindfire accuracy but you won't win a blindfire fight with a raffica.

But Elena might be useful if you use it with Elena's G-mal to get thanks buddy.

IDK. I have her G-MAL, yeah, but it's not exactly the weapon I'd use. I mean, I can use it, but it's not what I nornally use. It'll be weird.

Alrighty! Is the Raffica a good pair with the Dragon? Just fixing one of my favorite loadouts, you know.

With weapon expert lv. 2 it is but it takes time to learn that trick.

I don't need WE, since, you know, character guns. What trick? O.o

If it's a trick for the Dragon, it's cool. My sensitivity is +1 so I can aim faster.

That trick that you shoot 1 burst with the raffica in someone and then switch to the dragon and finish him with that. Weapon expert is to switch weapons faster.

That takes weapon expert level 2 btw.

To answer you question, stuntdouble, I use the raffica because it's decent at aiming and blindfing but is amazing at finishing of targets if you hit them and can't get a second shot on them for whatever reason.

I don't use the dragon/raffica trick because I prefer no pain wobble.
