Acolyte - How do you use this weapon?

I'm guessing I charge it and release the trigger right? If so, it's worthless. I'm just using it to get the Earth Mastery banner.

It deals absolutely insane damage to shields and barriers. Use it with Armor-Piercing stuff for great fun.

I use it to 1-shot a phantom's barriers(on gold and platinum) and other bosses in a few shots. And to stun multiple enemies at once while applying ammo powers to set them up for combo explosions. Often times doing all this by bouncing the round off walls and around corners where they can't even hit me back.

So its definitely not worthless its actually one of the best weapons in the game.

How do I use it? On every class that doesn't have the Talon equipped.

Incindiary ammo> shoot once > any detonating power = fire explosion on any enemy except praetorian, prime, banshee or atlas

If you ever play against Cerberus, its the best weapon you'll ever use against a Phantom.

Easily one of the top weapons in the game. There's no reason to not bring it as a sidearm if you're not already carrying a pistol as your main weapon.

It does 500% damage to shields & barriers.

You can do other things while it charges, including using your powers.

It weighs nothing.

It is not useless.
