Service history
 

The Chaperone is an Exotic Shotgun available in The Taken King.[1] It is obtained through the quest, Jolly Holliday.

The shotgun is based on the original Chaperone, used by Holliday's mother and buried with her. Holliday had Tex Mechanica create an updated version of the shotgun in honor of her mother.

Gameplay[edit]

The Chaperone fires a single slug shot and grants an Agility boost when equipped. Precision kills will grant a brief increase to the weapon's Handling, Range, Rate of Fire, and Stability.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Chaperone is the only lever-action shotgun in the game. The reload animation hearkens back to the way Arnold Schwarzenegger uses a similar shotgun in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • The Chaperone is also the only slug-firing shotgun in Destiny. All other shotguns fire buckshot, save for the Lord of Wolves, which fires some kind of incendiary shot.
  • The Tex Mechanica logo can be seen on the back of the weapon.
