Entropy is inevitable. Read Lore

"The thought was simple enough—sync a weapon's firing and targeting systems to a caged onboard artificial intelligence programmed to actively seek fulfillment of the weapon's base driving function. Simply put, give the weapon an awareness of its purpose. "If the machine is meant to destroy, what would happen if we made it aware of its intended goal? "What would happen if it reacted to any failure to achieve that goal by focusing more intently on defining the parameters of said goal and adjusting its function to more aggressively seek out the successful execution of its purpose? "These are the questions we asked ourselves while engineering the initial prototype. The answers we found—I think you'll agree—were encouraging." – Incomplete record, author unknown

My first exotic weapon in Destiny 2. I equipped it constantly until I realized much later that cluster Rocket is the meta and hated unable to change Heavy without loosing all ammo. Now I don't use it for almost anything. Reason being, lowest ammo reserve among fusions considering the was it is meant to be used, worst utility out of all exotic Fusions and lack of auto reload means you can't take advantage of it's perk for long. Granted it got the highest DPS out of all Fusions but lowest total damage also you shouldn't consider fusions if DPS is your concern. I think to be useful max ammo reserve should be 20 to 24 with 2 reserve and Impetus should be active until stowed or reloaded.

Deceptively high dps. You can do a substantial amount of damage to bosses such as zulmak without having to aim at his head which makes it easier to dodge the ads if you are doing pit solo. It also secretly has kill clip so keep that in mind.

perk was pretty good with auto reloads but it deactivates on a reload which makes it just a fusion rifle that can do a bit more dps

This thing still absolutely melts even after it was made a special weapon, I only wish its ammo economy wasn't so dire without running double reserves and scavenger. Extremely good for the nightmares in Altars, one of the best special weapons you can bring for it. Insane in PvP too with the catalyst, it's possibly even stronger than the coveted god roll Erentils.
