So it was luck of the draw tonight to see which STF I was gonna play, and it turned out to be Brotherhood of the Sword, one of my favorite ground missions. And this is a rapid-pace run, little over 8 minutes.
So, let me explain why do I use the 'stun pistol' when I play as Zagreus, to put it simply, I like how it looks when it's holstered, and I don't feel like a sitting duck when firing it. Yeah, it's not to 'challenge' myself or anything like that, it's for how it looks and how comfortable I feel playing when using it.
Also I use the "Adapted MACO Ground" Set, and it's weapon a Pulse Phaser Rifle with a Grenade Launcher makes for a nice alternate weapon to use when things get tight or just to look cool at the end of a mission.
