Legendary blaster on Blizz Hoth quests

Question: you know that legendary pistol you get during the Hoth questline? It is completely customizable so should I hang on to it and use higher level mods as I level? Does its legendary item type mean whatever mods I put in will be that much more powerful?

Thanks

It has the exact same stats as a normal moddable blaster, the only difference is the color (which is probably a bug).

I think it's artifact not legendary. I'm not used to the color scheme yet other than orange is moddable and grey is junk.

Purple should be legendary, but as above said, that pistol should be orange. It doesnt give any bonuses above or beyond any other orange pistol.

I haven't popped out my mods since I got it to see if it's changed but when I got that pistol it had +46 tech power on it with empty mod slots. So that would make it a little better than your average orange weapon.

I checked, it has a +43 Tech, same as my Great Hunt Blaster and 3 or 4 other oranges I have found.

It does way less damage than the orange one I had so I vendored it.

I also just vendored a orange chest because i found a green that had nearly identical stats and a TON more base armor.

Torhead suggests it was the first modable item in the game, so kept the artifact colour as a nod to being the first.

You guys are talking about the gun you get when you first talk to blizz?

I had got orange pistols fully modifiable 2-3 times before getting to Hoth. Most of them were from completing bonus series in previous zones.

Hence the reason I vendored it it's damage stats were much less than the orange gun I already had.
