Exotic Review : Ace of Spades

Don’t play your hand unless you’re sure you have that ace in the hole.

Lore
The Ace of Spades is designed for the Hunter that explores the frontier and battles against the Darkness with the trusty cannon on their hip, cause in the battle against the forces of the Dark, its a combination of both skill and a bit of luck. This exotic will bring your Hunter that felicitous edge so you can gain ever more victories for the Light.

Performance
This exotic hand cannon is a top tier weapon for any Hunter wishing to dominant in both PVE and PVP. It has a very high impact and a lower end in relation to rate of fire which causes you to make every shot count. If you are aiming for headshots, the Ace of Spades will eliminate you opponent in 2 or 3 shots depending on the enemy. The exotic perk called Maverick, moves one round from your ammo reserves into your magazine when you score a precision kill. The Ace of Spades, in a PVP context performs quite well and it rewards a skilled hand in relation to precision kills. In the Crucible, aiming for and killing opposing Guardians will provide you with an extra bullet allowing you to take out even more enemies and rush multiple opponents at once.

Aesthetics
The Ace of Spades has a typical hand cannon shape and it appears to be quite plain in basic design. However the draw to the Ace of Spades is the design that covers it. Two spades are present on each side of the gun, with an overturned one on the grip that is filled in with black and a normal spade on the barrel that is coloured white. The whole design of the gun is black and white reflecting the dual comparisons that permeate the world of Destiny – Light and Dark, White and Black, Life and Death.

How to Acquire it?
This gun can be gained by getting to Rank 3 with the gunsmith on a Hunter guardian. It unlocks the quest which requires you to firstly get 100 kills with a hand cannon while a primary telemetry is active. Then you have to dismantle rare and legendary hand cannons in order to get to 10 weapon parts. A blue hand cannon gives you 2 weapon parts and a legendary hand cannon is 5 weapon parts. After you collect these parts return to Banshee-44 and get your new Ace of Spades.
