Some people were suggesting that I use the Saber or the Mattock with my Turian Ghost, but I just unlocked the Collector Rifle. Should I be using that instead?

Also, is the Arc Pistol pretty good? Just stat wise, it seems like it's just like the Carnifex but way better.(could've been a little lighter though)

Its serviceable, but if you have anything above a harrier 3, its nnot that great.
In case you can't tell, I was being sarcastic.

As you can see here, I don't have much. Especially the new weapons and all that, I played a decent amount before the DLCs came out, but I didn't really get to play much after because I ran out of gold... D:

For what you have, its good. It does less damage than the Revenant, but you can actually hit what you aim at.

It can be useable on gold on a Ghost if you buff it with amps and whatnot, however at that point yes there are other weapons you could use to better effect as usual. It's accurate and you won't be running to the ammo box every few seconds. Meh, to each his or her own, the best way to find out though is to just try it instead of asking others opinions.

Mattock master race. It seriously makes most gold rarity assault rifles obsolete, including collector rifle.

Arc Pistol has similar DPS to a Paladin whether you're charging or rapidfiring. A fully charged shot with cranial trauma mod and phasic ammo can one-shot a Phantom with a headshot on gold. Arc Pistol has some serious power. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Yeah, had a random carry a level VIII version, with me to take on some Collectors, on Plat. And he was making some ripples. Not only was he NOT being a liability to the team, but the guy was raking up some serious scores.

Wish I had remembered what build/Equipment he used

It really, really needs a buff. And it still hasn't gotten it.

Its just an assault rifle among assault rifles. Its not bad, but for a rare, its very underwhelming.
Beware the fury of a patient man.
