Exotic Review : Lucky Raspberry

>No one has died wearing me.

# Its true. She leaves the unworthy before they fall.

Performance
The Lucky Raspberry is a specialised Hunter exotic chestpiece for the Bladedancer that wants to place a little more priority on their grenades. Not just any grenade however but the Arcbolt Grenade which chains lightning bolts towards a few enemies if they are within a specified range. The perk, Make Your Luck, provides a boost to the chaining capabilities of your Arcbolt Grenade, ie. it allows the bolts to travel further and chain off more enemies and as such takes out more of your opposition. It also allows you to spawn with full grenade energy which can be just the kick you need to get right back out in the fighting. As for its effectiveness I would say that it has benefits in multiple arenas. Beginning first with its PVP ability, the ability to hold onto grenades for a longer portion of the match can be a major advantage and lets face it, if you have constant grenades while wearing this chestpiece, you may be dying a lot so it can be perfect to give you some of that edge back. As well as this, the extended Arcbolt chains can be ideal for taking out a retreating enemy or to be that initial preemptive strike. In PVE, this exotic is even more effective, with the boost to chaining capabilities this exotic can quite easily clear out large groups of enemy adds even from a large distance making the Lucky Raspberry a strong contender for any Bladedancer.

Aesthetic
This chestpiece is quite bland in design features but it has some strong points that make it a little interesting. The main draw is the golden circles that are in the shape of illformed arrows or even a pair of deformed spades. However they mostly look like a variation on the Hunter emblem which would suit the aura of luckiness that this exotic holds as Hunters are known for their prowess by escaping danger by the skin of their teeth.

How to Acquire it?
The Lucky Raspberry can be gained from an exotic chest engram or purchasing it from Xur if you are lucky enough for him to have it in his inventory.
