Special Weapon Effect
Power is pizza. – Increased damage, accuracy bullet speed, and vastly increased fire rate. Cannot have an Anointment.
Usage & Description
The Linc has really strong base stats, and generally outperforms most purple and even legendary weapons of the same level. However, because the Linc can't spawn with an anointment, it is outperformed by other weapons in Mayhem mode. However, even without an Anointment, the Linc can still hold its own against some of the most difficult enemies in the game.
The high accuracy and bullet speed of the Linc means that the weapon's alternate fire mode, a tracker grenade, is relatively useless compared to firing at enemies normally.
- Prior to a 3/12/20 hotfix, the Linc had damage penalty over other Atlas pistols. That was removed and instead replaced with a slight damage bonus.
- As of the 1/21/2021 hotfix, the patch notes state that the Linc can now spawn with Anointments. However, the Linc does not drop any anointments in game.
- The flavor text is a paraphrased quote from April Ludgate in the 2009 television show Parks and Recreation. The full quote is "Time is money, money is power, power is pizza, pizza is knowledge, let's go."
