Exotic Linear Fusion Rifle Kinetic
Review Rating
"We didn't have linear fusions in the Dark Age. But we made it work." —The Drifter Read Lore

"Nah. Dark Age version was better." "You and I remember the Dark Age differently." "I'll take a hard projectile over energy any day. No better way to make sure the target is dead." "Energy is for silencing barriers. Fists are all I need to administer blunt-force trauma." "I forget you used to be a Warlord." "What do you mean 'used to?'" "I thought you'd thrown in with Saladin and Felwinter." "I did. But I never stopped being me." "Then why—" "'Warlord' is too many syllables." "Gambit needs more candidates like you. Should stop by sometime. Whatever you want to call yourself." "Thank you. You're a liar and a cheat. Stay out of my Crucible."

Perfect for fucking up shields. I use it personally in Dungeons because holy hell does this thing pack a punch if you can actually aim.

For PVE this weapon is amazing it has high damage vs shields, and even more when they are down. Is really good for raids and gives a good DPS output. For PVP this weapon is kinda meh; it 1 taps on headshots but feels hard to properly aim (due to low aim assist) and flinches a lot.
