"Because three heads are good, but four are better." —Jeza "Jeopardy" Verlayn Read Lore

I had plans for the Photonic Heart. First I was gonna take it straight to Marcus, gloat for a bit. "Look what I found, told you the rumors were true, how fast d'you think my Sparrow'd go if I swapped my engine out for it…" Then see what I could get for it in the Bazaar. Not 'cause I wanted to sell it. Just 'cause it'd feel good to know. Then I was gonna take a little vacation with it to Venus, and THEN I'd figure out what to do with it. At my leisure. But no. Had to get sucker punched by an asteroid. Barely made the landing on this dusty spit of Shore. Lost all my weapons in the crash. Heart only survived 'cause I put it in my helmet and buckled it in my seat. So my Ghost revives me, and there I am in a crater surrounded by fragmentalized auto rifles and a Golden Age microstellar dynamo. Talk about hell. I started with three barrels. Figured I might as well lean into the hell vibe. Shoulda known that wouldn't have been enough to really min/max with a power source this feisty. Especially once I noticed the coronal containment shield was cracked. The first time I fired the Cerberus+1 and felt that puppy kick, I knew: plans are overrated.

Catalyst makes it pretty strong overall. There is an exploit at the moment where if you tap fire/use some sort of macro, you can shoot faster than intended with focus fire on

You will either love or hate this unique weapon. It's basically a nerfed shotgun with a 360 rpm rate of fire. Don't expect accurate shots because it's a point in the general area and shoot type of weapon. Great for clearing a roomful of minor enemies. It's biggest weakness is a slow reload. Spend time using this weapon before passing judgement.

A little weird and niche at first, but play to its strengths and goddamn, this is one of the most fun weapons in the game. Same applies for the catalyst, but you'd be surprised how much damage it does to majors. Just tap the trigger and go to town.

Catalyst is a MUST, literally takes this gun from mememachine to actual meltmachine.

People who say it's bad haven't played with it enough imo. Normal mode has inverse damage fall off (to a point). But it does do more damage further away you are. So it becomes a balancing act with range juggling. If the target is big enough to eat all 4 barrels at far medium range, it shreds. And groups daft enough to stand together, ouch. Slap on Focus Fire for close range nonsense. Just can't justify it and Gnawing Hunger at the same time. Only downside.

Let me put this simply. Cerberus hits like an 18-wheeler. The catalyst can move a mountain. And this applies to both PvE and PvP. My favourite thing? Taking out slideshot dust rock blue users.

let me put it this way. I think it straight up melts bigger yellowbars faster than recluse w/ MoA in focus fire mode. Tip: tapping instead hold trigger can increase rate of fire
