“…This gun is an impatient killer, always hungry to destroy. Many of her enemies have perished, but so have many of those who wield her, for her recklessness is contagious. Only the strongest of wills can resist it…” – in-game description
This weapon being an energy weapon allows it to bypass built-in or mounted Ancile shields.
The Dragoon has the same range (600 meters) and damage type as the Zeus. However rather than firing in 5 second bursts, it fires up to 4 plasmoids per clip, with a reload while firing mechanic (each shot taking 3 seconds to charge). This allows the Dragoon to have a slightly higher overall DPS, when compared to the Zeus.
Good options for this weapon include mounting them on the Fury, Carnage, or Raijin. The Fury can fire with 3 of them which allows for unparalleled energy damage at mid-range. The Carnage, due to it's Rush ability, allowing it to quickly move from one sniping location to another. Finally, the Raijin, which receives a damage increase of 30% while in Bastion mode, allowing for the firepower equivalent of 2.6 Dragoons, along with a physical shield, at the cost of being stationary.
