"Bring the heat to them."
— weapon description (D1)

Firebringer excels as both, a High-impact and a Mid-ranged weapon. The Weapon was originally meant to be made for AJ, the Relentless when he was supposed to join the Praxic Order, but had a fallout between him and one of their members, causing the gun to be unfinished, however when AJ started his search for Menkrodos, the Dimensional Mind, he and Banshee-44 attempted to complete the weapon, using parts from other Hand Cannons and even infused some of AJ's Solar Light. Once finished, AJ would take the weapon for himself and began his journey to destroy Menkrodos, which he would use to kill the Mind by shooting its core with the weapon, causing the gun to be damaged, however AJ would be able repair it and continued using it as his personal weapon.
