Public Reviews

Crux Termination IV is one of the most interesting and viable world drops we've seen in a long time. Its perk pool is superb in the first place but it even comes with Slideshot — a perk we haven't seen on a Rocket Launcher before.

Cataphract brings with it an excellent combination of perks that make it a top contender be it the PVE or PVP endgame. But even outside of those, it's a very fun option even for more casual use cases. It finally gets to shine bright with the reserve buff.

Igneous Hammer continues its reign as the strongest (aggressive frame) Hand Cannon in the game. Its uniquely high stats and excellent perk pool perfectly set it up for everything you can throw at it.

Our first attempt at weapon reviews covering the seasonal craftable weapons available in Season of the Witch (Season 22). Formatting could be better but it's what started it all. Thank you all for the incredible support for us to keep doing more.

Planned Reviews

Doomed Petitioner - Planned

Doomed Petitioner is a frankly excellent LFR (Linear Fusion Rifle) in all the right ways. Not only does it come with many of the hottest perks like Reconstruction and Envious Assassin, it even has both Precision Instrument and Surrounded in the 4th column making it a prime candidate to get crafted as soon as possible.

Supercluster - Planned

Supercluster is an excellent option unfortunately held back by its circumstances — being a Strand Weapon. However, if it gets a chance to show off its strengths, it's set up to be one of the strongest options in its slot. Especially when paired with a Strand Power Weapon.

Undercurrent - Planned

Despite Forbearance's dominance in the PVE sandbox, Undercurrent manages to carve out a space of its own for its own with utility and subclass synergies. While it likely won't be replacing Forbearance for most, it does provide a very solid alternative while being a more accessible option for most players.
