Vs Other Weapons

Freedom's Herald vs Tiny Instrument of Death

 

Tiny Instrument of Death is also a Legendary Firecracker Pistol but it uses Energy Cells, its Magazine Size is larger than Freedom's Herald. 

 

Compare to Tiny Instrument of Death, I prefer the Freedom's Herald since it's very effective, with a good AoE, and it has a quite top threat to knockdown any mobs that continue to exist getting hit.

 

Freedom's Herald does take a piece to reload, and the projectile takes a bit of practice to aim well, as soon as you get the grasp of it, it is especially fun and useful.

 

However, Freedom's Herald is a fantastic weapon whilst killing fodder on lower level missions. When you face higher level missions and can not one shot mobs, you may choose the Tiny instrument of death.
