Omolon's newest breakthrough uses focused sonic waves to superheat electrons into a devastating energy beam. Read Lore

From the makers of the Coldheart comes the latest in breakthrough City Age technology: the Wavesplitter. Here are the three most frequently asked questions we get about our revolutionary weaponized sound system. Q: If the Wavesplitter fires sound waves, does it need ammo packs? A: The Wavesplitter does need ammo packs, but the onboard matter transmuter turns that ammo into electrical energy that powers the waveform emitter. Q: What does it sound like when you're hit by it? A: Our Guardian testers give us many different answers. Some say it sounds like a scream you hear in your bones. Others say it sounds like a dying star. Still others say it reminds them of a knife shaped like a B flat. Q: Can the Wavesplitter be used as a musical instrument? A: The Wavesplitter was not designed to be a musical instrument. That said, we at Omolon are in the business of giving Guardians options, not taking them away.

it's a unique trace rifle that I believe is the only varying damage weapon as it's based on the waves on its monitor grab an orb of light and the damage jacks up to the highest for this weapon it does have competition with​ its brothers while coldheart is the king of dps for trace rifles and promethus is king for add clear wavesplitter is more of a all around trace rifle with the potenial of being a dps machine
