I'm just salty because I can't get the catalyst to make this thing viable.

Great weapons with loads of versatility. Currently working on catalyst but without it my main problem is the slow charge time. Even without the catalyst however it's great for bursting bosses or taking out that tower-like enemy in the distance while still moving. The key difference of this weapon, compared to something like the Whisper, is that this can be used at all ranges effectively, breaks shields like they aren't there and can score a headshot regardless of what is in way, including the enemies back armour.

Embarrass enemy Supers! Spank Invaders! Punish Collectors! Make minors, majors, and bosses go to bed! Accidentally laser-split yourself during Flawless runs! It does it all, just a little slower! 18,000 kills and going strong.

Its really sad how bad this thing has gotten, it used to be a great gun but now its just turned into something flashy you keep in the vault, it really could use a buff

A well-rolled legendary linear fusion rifle does more damage and DPS than masterworked sleeper

Quite bad in comparison to other top-DPS weapons, such as whisper or Idzanagi, but if you have none of those, or you don't have a better exotic to fill the slot, then sure, this weapon can do work. Just keep in mind, that without catalyst its pretty bad. PvE 3/5 PvP 2/5

Recently, I've noticed that every Destiny database (even the official Destiny 2 app) has listed Sleeper as having 4 shots in the magazine rather than what it actually has, 3. If someone that manages some of the websites or apps can explain why this is occurring, or if this is intentional for a future change, that feedback would be much appreciated.
