Pulsewave Assaults are a type of Ground Weapon. Their primary fire method shoots a cone of energy at a target. These shots can also damage enemies behind the target.

They also have a secondary fire mode that shoots a wide cone of energy, which can damage multiple targets, and has a good chance to knock back. These shots have the chance of causing a target to become exposed, which can be useful if someone else is armed with an Exploit weapon.

Depending on the type of energy used, these weapons usually come with a 2.5% chance of applying a specific effect to the target, unless otherwise stated.

Modifiers[edit | edit source]
