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 Chronicle 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.
  • The synergy Three Part Harmony may also be a reference to the Kingkiller Chronicle as each book begins with a description of a three part silence.
  • Three Part Harmony could also be a Tenacious D reference. Their video "Wonder Boy" includes lutes too.
  • 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 the Supply Drop update.
  • 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.
  • Before the Farewell to Arms Update, this gun was an unused reskin of the Face Melter and acted identically to the Face Melter, firing notes in four directions.
