"Can't outrun the sunrise." —Liu Feng Read Lore

She bowed her head, heat shimmering from her fist. A silent salute to the Hive closing around her, their eyes forming a glowing jade ring. She was a Sunbreaker. A mercenary from days before the City. Not like the new Lights from the Tower. She was weary. But there was no rest out here, where the City Lights didn't reach. She and her allies were committed to their arduous, solitary task. But they could always use more numbers. Sometimes, they left trinkets for the City. Meant as challenge and bribe at once—we offer you this. Come find us. She had forged the Warlock gauntlets herself. Ouros laughed in her face when she told her their name. She wasn't very good at names. A gun. She would forge a gun, next. It would speak like her Hammer. And burn like fire. The ring of jade eyes closed on her. Liu Feng laughed, her arms open for a fiery embrace.

Literally just Graviton Lance, but without the damage or range or blast radius. The ONLY thing this has over GL is that the chain explosion works on Shanks and Harpies. Just use Graviton Lance, it's better in literally every way. You're a 2-digit IQ idiot if you use this over Graviton Lance.

When you absolutely must explode everything in your path. Great look, great sounds, great reload, great explosions. My new (old) favorite gun in shadowkeep

Finally Sunshot has the place it deserves! I use it in Pve for ad clearing and in Pvp paired with the Revoker.

After getting mag size buff it's crispy. Get the catalyst. It makes a huge difference to range / stability.

Exceptionally stellar for clearing trash. AOE effect sets off a chain reaction, precision hits are best, especially now in Shadow Keep. Definitely get the catalyst and level it pronto. It nearly increase every stat to almost 90% roughly.

In addition to the firing animation looking cleaner, the mag buff is a great QOL change for Sunshot. Sunshot's weaknesses weren't in damage, but rather being able to hit the damn target with enough ammo.
