Recommended Perks


Another raid weapon with its perks aimed with laser precision at PvE, the GENESIS CHAIN~ is begging to be used as a minion clean-up machine. Focus Fire can combine perfectly with High Caliber Rounds to keep low level enemies flinching, or Hammer Forged can help you put a little extra space between yourself and your victims. Focused Firefly is actually a hilarious perk, allowing Firefly to activate as long as Focus Fire is running. This weapon joins the very small group of fully automatic guns that have Firefly, so I think it deserves a special, if not necessarily competitive place, in late game PvE. Somewhat surprisingly, this weapon is actually very good in PvP too, at least for an AR. The version of Focus Fire is has is slightly different than other ARs, so it boosts the damage a bit less, but also doesn't slow down the RoF as much. Thanks to this, it ends up with a very fast 0.83s optimal TtK, which makes it the only high impact AR I feel like is worth using
