  • Decreases handling speed
  • Moderately controls recoil

Column 2: Magazine - Armor-Piercing Rounds - Rounds cause extra damage to combatants' shields and overpenetrate targets.

  • Slightly increases range

Column 3: Trait - Bottomless Appetite - Dealing continuous damage extends the duration of Ravenous Beast.

Column 4: Stock - Hand-Laid Stock - This weapon is optimized for recoil control.

  • Increases stability


Charging ravenous Beast[edit]

You charge Tarrabah's Ravenous Beast perk whenever you take or do damage. The charge counts hits, so a sniper shot to you with charge the same amount as a hand cannon shot. Ravenous beast charges much faster in PVP than in PVE. One big downside to the perk is that whenever you stow Tarrabah, activate your Super, or pull out your ghost, all progress or Ravenous Beast is lost. This might be a glitch but is most likely intentional, because if you could store the buff, the weapon would be too powerful.

Ravenous Beast[edit]

While the perk is active, you fire much faster, almost twice as fast, and you do twice as much damage. You also reload much faster. The perk Bottomless Appetite makes it that if you are doing continuous damage, the perk lasts longer. This makes Tarrabah the best burst DPS primary in the game.


The world is very big again.

It used to be small. I know because I was born inside its commwire-satellite-datawave skeleton.

But even before that, before the Traveler wove us into a tapestry of peculiar threads, this was a planet of big, big worlds.

Many of those worlds were lost in a collapse, but not the one you're thinking of. Before the great Collapse, there was another. A longer, slower, bitterer collapse.

Some things survive. Names upon rusted signs, phrases in impervious microfiche. As other Guardians save humans, I save words. I save stories.

That is my mission, here on the shores of the Hawkesbury Sea. I surface the survivors. The sweet-voiced koodelong. The swift gangurru. The sharp-fanged tarrabah.

It's a mission the Traveler started. After all, she surfaced me.


  • This weapon looks very similar to Veist’s weaponry, leading some to believe it is a weapon made by its founder or lead designer before they started the company.
  • Tarrabah is the Australian Aborigine name for the Tasmanian Devil, gangurru is the name of the Kangaroo, and the koodelong is the name of the Grey Shrike-thrush.
  • Hawkesbury Sea is a sea on the East Coast of Australia.
