      There is an elevator in "Afterlife" that you can take to the roof, as soon as you get out of it on the top-right side you can find the legendary crafting plans.

        This weapon is part of my established load out, along with a smart pistol (because ya boy is a troll), a katana, and the mantis arms. The widow maker is my favorite because it works like my two favorite weapon types, the shotgun and assault rifle. Plus it has elemental damage for me that does damage over time.

          For some reason, I'm getting Annihilation experience when I use this, as if it was a shotgun. To be fair, it works very similarly.

            Fully upgraded it at level 50 and it's still Rare, NOT Epic. Other than being an Epic disappointment I guess...

              Any way to reconstruct it would be nice - scrapped it for parts and now I can't get the new upgraded purple version

                I cant shoot widow maker while aiming with l2, only from hip fire does the gun actually fire. Was working fine for a few hours and then it stopped working. Anyone else having this issue? (PS4 PRO- 1.04 version)
