Sunshot

"Can't outrun the sunrise." —Liu Feng

She bowed her head, heat shimmering from her fist. A silent salute to the Hive closing around her, their eyes forming a glowing jade ring.

She was a Sunbreaker. A mercenary from days before the City. Not like the new Lights from the Tower. She was weary. But there was no rest out here, where the City Lights didn't reach. She and her allies were committed to their arduous, solitary task. But they could always use more numbers.

Sometimes, they left trinkets for the City. Meant as challenge and bribe at once—we offer you this. Come find us.

She had forged the Warlock gauntlets herself. Ouros laughed in her face when she told her their name. She wasn't very good at names.

A gun. She would forge a gun, next. It would speak like her Hammer. And burn like fire. The ring of jade eyes closed on her. Liu Feng laughed, her arms open for a fiery embrace.

(Shadowkeep)
Better than spare rations and one of the best and most consistent hand cannons now.
Capped at 50% dropoff because of explosions making this the longest range exotic hand cannon.
Explosions on kill do 100-110 ish damage in pvp; kills almost every minor and starts massive chains in pve
2
This is an amazing pve HC but for pvp there are better choices .
2
How to clear adds:
1. Equip the Sunshot.
2. Shoot the nearest enemy.
3. Pop your favorite emote as you watch the world burn.
In all seriousness, this is one of my favorite exotics, works wonders in pve but still holds its own in pvp as well.

One of the best energy handcannons in the game, maybe one of the best weapons in general, especially since sunsetting gutted almost half the game. In PVE, it's good for room clearing in lower level content. In PVP, it's a 150 RPM HC. Enough said.

It may not be as "crispy" as Spare Rations used to be in PVP, but once you get good with it, it basically becomes an energy Spare Rations except it explodes.

Wicked with enhanced HC loader, it's like having 24/7 outlaw. So much fun to use.
1
Sunblast in PvE is amazing. In PvP the explosive projectiles have no damage falloff and definitely help with the TTK.
1
Let me ask you one question.

EXPLOSIONS?

10/10 by itself in pve
12/10 with warmind splodey build
1
This is a PvE BEAST! Especially for killing mob waves. You kill one and a chain reaction of dying enemies begin. Combined with warmine cells this is absolute TOP TIER! 5 Stars ++
For PvP there are better options, but it is still in the higher region. Defenitive higher than average! 4 Stars
0
great in PvE also pretty good in PvP
0
Loved the look of this weapon since my friend had it and just recently got lucky on a Xur engram purchase and I gotta say, this is my most used weapon for any content. Best PvE weapon for me by far
0
Sh!ts on ads in PVE and pops off in PVP
0
Really good for pve because of the explosion. Also good for crucible because it shoots really fast and the exploding rounds have no damage fall off even at longer ranges where normal hand cannons won't do so well. When you kill an enemy the enemy explodes, that explosion does massive damage in crucible. really recommend it for any mode pve and pvp.
0
Phenomenal clearer of trash! Not bad in PVP, especially in matches where they are huddling
0
11/10 PvP sidearm, low aim assist so if youre one of the guys who uses spare and thinks youre good at aiming, prepare to get pissed when you dont get those magic headshots. :D much like thorn the reticle bounce is weird to get used to but once you do you wont stop using this shit <3 good in pve too but i still prefer riskrunner
0
This is one of the best PvE primaries in the game. So many explosions, so much fun. Very very very stable and snappy hand cannon that feels like it has built in quick quickdraw due to almost max handling. About half the damage has no range drop off due to being an explosion, which is fantastic in both PvE and PvP. Fast, unique reload animation. This weapon also has a very nice, aesthetically pleasing sight. This weapon will not let you down in any activity.
0
Great for adds in pve. With the buff it’s even better. In pvp you need to remember it is a 150 3 tap, but it’s not as good as some other things.
0
The best ad clear weapon in PVE. Shot one thrall and the whole group is gone. Bad in PVP though, it feels nice but doesn't hit hard at all.
0
I love it in pvp and pve nicely done :)
0
In PvE, there's not much I can say about Sunshot that hasn't been said already. Good all-rounder, but the ultimate ad-clearer.

In PvP though, people really undersell this thing. Its special explosive shots have a deceptively long effective range, its TTK is much shorter than you'd think for 150RPM, the bullet magnetism is surprisingly forgiving, and the explosive shots mean that you can harass enemies that are camping targets or right behind cover.
0
*The* best ad clearing exotic weapon in the game. Clears minor enemies like no other but does lack impact to knock out higher level enemies so be sure to have a special weapon. with the catalyst it feels nice to fire in sunshot because the recoil is only in the viewmodel as the sunshot fires straight, but lacks the perks of other HCs which makes it a "use it if you're desperate for HC kills".
0
This is quite possibly the best HC for PvE. Has EP AND a better version of Dragonfly. Not only that, but with the catalyst the recoil becomes so much more manageable, and you’ll be making orbs like crazy. 10/10 would murder Dregs with this again.
0
This thing is more destructive than some heavy weapons, all you have to do is shoot in the general direction of a crowd and the explosions will do the rest with a satisfying daisy chain effect
0
In PvE, this thing clears ads better than even Graviton Lance does I think, on top of being a good and fun weapon instead of weak-feeling and unwieldy like GL can be sometimes.

In PvP, it's deceptively strong for seeming to do so little damage, being very accurate with high bullet magnetism and fast fire & reload speeds. It kills fast, and is a great support weapon in Survival.
0
Great for minors, decent against majors
I'm having a blast with it on the crucible specially in control matches
Definitely better with the catalyst
0
Great for ad clear in PvE, and while there are "better" options, you can never go wrong with sunshot in low level content. Fantastic for PvP too, even though right now the current meta is all about the 120s. If you can position yourself properly, you can beat 120s even if they shoot first.
