Barely a gun at all, but a very, very special lute. Or so were [sic] told.

Seems to get out of tune when blue fire is around.

Really Special Lute is a gun that fires a spread of 7 bullets that have a chance to charm enemies. It also buffs nearby companions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This gun’s description is a reference to Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles book series. The main character, Kvothe, plays the lute, and has faced several traumatic experiences at the hands of the mysterious Chandrian. This group of magical beings causes various supernatural effects that herald their presence, and one of them is causing fire to turn blue.
  • This gun's ability to buff companions may be a reference to the Bard's ability to give allies inspiration in Dungeons & Dragons.
  • In the final scene of The Bullet's past, a Coaler is holding it, despite the scene being added in Supply Drop
  • The tag line "Purple Prose" is possibly a reference to the Golden Lute from Crypt of the Necrodancer, which is commonly depicted as being surrounded by purple smoke.
