Breaking an enemy shield transfers one bullet from reserves. Breaking a combatant shield—or the shield of a Guardian using a Super—with that shield's energy type grants bonus damage for the rest of the magazine.

Borealis

Light is a spectrum. Why limit yourself to a single hue?

"Project Borealis's onboard systems contain a pocket energy matrix capable of changing its alignment in a near instant to mimic the spectral frequencies of mapped energy types. The science is groundbreaking, but volatile. We're lucky to have this first, stable model available for active combat use. More will surely come, but for now, the Borealis is the only one of its kind that I trust for real world application."

"Sounds dangerous."

"If the internal matrix misaligns for any reason during its shift between outputs—damage, wear, a flaw in its production—the resulting feedback could [REDACTED]."

"That bad, huh?"

"If your definition of 'bad' includes the [REDACTED] then yes, 'bad' begins to describe it."

Useful in missions with different elemental shields such as Zero Hour. However, it gets out shined by hard light, because hard light uses primary ammo. In PVP, no reason to use this compared to other snipers.

Borealis is an incredibly underrated sniper in PVE. I've taken it into the new grandmaster nightfalls and it works incredibly well for support. It feels very nice to use, and you can break any elemental shield for your team (maybe they want to use something matching the burn) for a damage buff. While Ionic Return is active, you can actually swap out of it, use a weapon with Sympathetic Arsenal and keep the damage buff active. Great for all kinds of high level content and looks fantastic.

Good damage with perk. Great to pair with lunafactions.
0
Great for PvE activities with match game active. Able to switch to any shield type, letting your teammates run other energy weapons, and can 1-2 shot most majors with ionic return active. Ok in PvP, but you're probably better off running another sniper and saving the exotic slot.

Pretty good for pve huh. Especially ig=f snipers have some modes.

After they started to step away from low-zoom snipers and reduced the aim assist for aggressive frames, I've found myself really enjoying this sniper for pvp. 45 isn't exactly low zoom, but it's better than the default 50 zoom they've been giving new aggressive frames like frozen orbit and succession. Considering it also has an aim assist stat similar to adored, this snipe feels better/easier to use than other legendary snipes, despite its lack of snapshot sights.

It's decent but not amazing use for that exotic slot. It does the job but it is not outstanding in any means. The only time it has a massive use case is shooting all 45 different elemental plates on Mars for Worldline Zero.
-1
Rip people a new one in Gambit as an invader. Great for swapping elements during certain activities that need that element against a particular elemental shield type.

otimo dano usos praticos otimos mas poderia ter um aumento na cadencia de 0,10 nas snipers em si
