 A rifle that belonged to a cagey Raffen. Wasn't cagey enough, as it turns out.

Widow Maker Weapon Information

  • Base Weapon: M-179E Achilles
  • Special Properties: Fires two projectiles per shot and deals Chemical damage with an increased chance to apply poison. Charged shots deal more damage.
  • The description is out of date, likely due to a mechanics change in a past patch. Like other Precision Rifles, this weapon shoots six bullets in a small circle around the reticle.
  • When fully charged, the bullets fired by this weapon have significantly less spread.

Widow Maker has the following Mod slots

  • empty mod


Widow Maker Weapon Notes and Tips

  • This weapon benefits greatly from the mod Crunch as it adds damage to each bullet, effectively multiplying the effect per shot by 6.
  • For the same reason, this weapon is ideal for leveling Engineering EXP. Firing it at enemies that are behind a wall will reward six times the usual Engineering exp per kill, because all six bullets hit at the same time, and give the full Engineering EXP per bullet. If you manage to stay hidden as well, you'll also get six times the Stealth EXP per kill.
  • With the release of Patch 1.6, the scope slot was removed.  If the player owned such a rifle with a scope attached, the scope will be removed and placed in the inventory.

      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)
