The Fundamentals

Holding changes this weapon's damage type, cycling between Solar, Arc, and Void.
Ionic Return

Ionic Return

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.
0
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.
0
Good damage with perk. Great to pair with lunafactions.
