Recommended Perks


Coming from arguably one of the best PvE pulse rifle archetypes in the game, I the Steel Medulla solidly competes with No Time To Explain for the best DPS pulse rifle against bosses. Smooth Ballistics helps to boost it's only low base stat, aim assist, and Full Auto makes sure your RoF is always maximized. Hand-laid Stock, although it will decrease a bit of range, will keep those burst patterns tight, which is perfect because the signature perk gives you increased damage on your fourth burst, as long as your first three hit the target. High recoil direction means that the burst pattern is easy to control, and high mag size and reload speed keeps the damage flowing.
