TriviaEdit

  • Red Death was taken from a fallen Guardian and redesigned by a new owner who had it repainted and modified. The optics were even hacked to implement new graphics.[1]
  • The Red Death upgrade triggers health regeneration rather than providing health directly.
  • Red Death uses the model of an auto rifle.
  • The description used to read, "Vanguard policy urges Guardians to destroy this weapon on sight. It is a Guardian killer." The last part was removed in Update 1.0.3.[2]
