A thought occurred to me while planning out a technician pistol build: SoG5 is not a master trait, nor does it require MSs. Furthermore, any build with SoG5 in it is worth it for pistols. MSs blocks SoB, which leads to less average damage output (in the very long term) with most pistols.

With that in mind, I went for MSc, which had the added benefit of snagging Intuition much earlier. The beginning of the game played mostly with automatics, as I didn't start picking up SoG until after MSc.

Apart from Malek's Armor (which was awesome), I had basically 0 luck this game. I didn't get any unique/exotic pistols (and hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side) and none of my scavenged uniques turned into unique modpacks. It didn't matter, though, because MSc almost guarantees Firestorm and Sniper packs, which I used to make a wall-cutting laser pistol and a sickeningly damaging Storm Bolter.

The last level being full of formers was hilariously anticlimactic.
