New Exotics

No Time To Explain – Pulse Rifle
Refunds ammo when landing precision hits on regular enemies and when shooting enemies affected by stasis. Precision hits on enemies affected by Stasis opens a ‘portal’ to send additional bullets from other timelines (increasing your damage).
Cloudstrike – Sniper
Precision hits cause enemy to get hit with a lightning strike. Rapid precision hits trigger a lightning storm on the enemy.
The Lament – Sword
Charges power when activating block ability – when charged, sword will ravish enemy shields. At full charge, sword will heal the user.
Salvation’s Grip – Grenade Launcher
Fires stasis crystal which freeze opponents in its blast radius. Charging the gun will fire more crystals and increase radius.
Icefall Mantle – Titan gauntlets
Replace barrier abilities with an over shield.
Precious Scars – Titan helmet
Overshield aura granted to you and nearby allies when teammates revive you.
Mask of Bakris – Hunter helmet
Dodge becomes Shift which covers more ground and temporarily cloaks you.
Athrys’s Embrase – Hunter gauntlets
Enhanced ‘Weighted Throwing Knife.’ Knife will ricochet off surfaces twice. Rapid precision hits increases damage and staggers enemies.
Dawn Chorus – Warlock helmet
Increases Daybreak super projectile power and sets enemies on fire. Gain back melee energy from the burn damage.
Necrotic grip – Warlock gauntlets
Melee ability will corrupt enemies causing additional damage-over-time. Killing a corrupted enemy causes the corruption to spread while also giving user melee energy.
