Is Tommy’s Matchbook The Best Exotic Auto Rifle?

When it comes to Exotic Auto Rifles, Tommy’s Matchbook is something very different, added with Season of the Worthy. Usually in these articles we look to analyse everything about a weapon, how good it is, and then compare it to the rest of the Exotic weapons in that category to work out which is the best. That’s not possible with Tommy’s Matchbook, but we’ll get to that. For now, let’s dive into what makes this Auto Rifle tick.

That’s not possible with Tommy’s Matchbook, but we’ll get to that. For now, let’s dive into what makes this Auto Rifle tick.

Stats

  • Impact – 18
  • Range – 49
  • Stability – 50
  • Handling – 62
  • Reload Speed – 28
  • Rounds per Minute – 720
  • Magazine – 72

Hidden Stats

  • Zoom – 16
  • Inventory Size – 56
  • Aim Assistance – 81
  • Recoil – 64

Perks

  • Intrinsic Perk: Ignition Trigger – Sustained fire will increase the damage this weapon deals, but burn the user.
  • Hammer-Forged Rifling – Increases Range.
  • Extended Mag – Greatly increases magazine size, but greatly decreases reload speed.
  • Heat Sink – The damage to the user from overheating is reduced when not aiming down the sights.
  • Had-Laid Stock – Increases stability.

Comparison

Honestly, it’s not fair to compare Tommy’s Matchbook to any other Exotic Auto Rifle. The issue with Cerberus +1, Hard Light, Monte Carlo, SUROS Regime, and Sweet Business is that their Intrinsic perks don’t have a downside that harms the Guardian using them. They all boost a Guardian’s performance because of something interesting that they do, but they don’t harm the Guardian to compensate for that, neither do they take something away instead.

Verdict

Tommy’s Matchbook is in a league of its own, but not because it’s better than anything else. It’s a weapon that’s very different to any other Exotic in Destiny 2, one that might mark a new direction that Bungie is taking the game in. It’s new and different, but it’s also something that’s oddly appealing.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.
