Easily the best weapon in the game if you have the right stats and gems. Just stupidly powerful. At 50 Strength and 99 Arcane with ~20% ATK up gems, I get 1023 AR. At those stats, the charged R2 beam is the highest damage you can do using a single bullet, even outdamaging the charged R2 arrow from Simon's Bowblade (with 50 Skill/50 Bloodtinge and 27% physical gems). A jumping attack can do over 2000 damage if both the blade and beam hits. The charged R2 plus the charged R2 followup has got to be the highest amount of damage you can do in the shortest time possible in the entire game (again, if both blade and beams hit). On top of all that, most enemies can be stunlocked to death with the L2. Even on NG+7 it slices through health bars like nothing. I'm convinced From put this into the game as a sort of "ultimate" endgame weapon as a reward for people who maxed everything out and want to feel like a god. Even at lower levels though, the amount of stunlock and burst damage is pretty ridiculous.
