- — Description
Cassidy is an Exotic shotgun. Like many Exotic weapons, it can be acquired from a special vendor in the Terminal if available or as a random drop from named enemies, the Field Proficiency Cache or the Survival Cache.
Cassidy is an Exotic variant of the Double Barrel Shotgun, of which it is the only such variant. Like the standard version, Cassidy has no weapon mod slots. Visually, Cassidy has a polished wooden finish with a golden trigger and firing mechanism; like all other Exotic weapons, its visual presentation cannot be altered in any way.
Talents and Usage
By quickly double-tapping the fire button, an agent will empty both of Cassidy's barrels almost simultaneously, effectively turning the weapon into the super shotgun from Doom. This explains the much higher rate of fire compared to the standard Double Barrel Shotgun, giving the weapon much greater burst damage overall. Finding a way to take advantage of Cassidy's explosive power in close quarters can lead to success.
- Cassidy is most likely named for the famed 19th-century American outlaw Butch Cassidy.
- The exotic talent name Boomstick is most likely a reference to the movie Army of Darkness.
