The Gorgon Wraith is a powerful variant of its precursor that features unique styling.
The Gorgon Wraith is the Wraith upgrade to the Gorgon, featuring a slight increase in damage, accuracy, and fire rate, while sacrificing Puncture and Slash damage. Compared to the Prisma Gorgon, it does slightly more damage per hit but has generally lower stats. It is a powerful Grineer light machine gun with a rapid fire rate and a huge magazine.
This weapon was a reward for the Tethra's Doom event and came with its own slot and Orokin Catalyst. This weapon was also awarded in the Infested Nightmares Bonus Weekend's "Survive or DIE alert", but did not come with an Orokin Catalyst installed (it also did not come with a free inventory slot initially; this was quickly patched).
The Gorgon is exceptionally useful to fight the Jackal or any other enemy that requires sustained damage.
After the spool up time, it is possible to use the Gorgon in quick short bursts, allowing you to keep up the high rate of fire, but with less recoil and less bullets wasted, making the Gorgon usable at medium to long ranges.
You can retain the "charge" of the fire rate by sprinting. This way the weapon stops shooting but as long as you keep LMB held down, the fire rate will not reset and the weapon will resume fast firing once you stop sprinting.
Use the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod to compensate for lost ammo due to the weapons high rate of consuming ammunition on full spool.
Speed Trigger decreases the charge time considerably, though the increased maximum fire rate causes the weapon to burn through ammo reserves extremely quickly and cause more misses as the recoil throws bullets out more. Consider firing in bursts.
The Gorgon Wraith is the second Primary Wraith weapon ever released, following the Strun Wraith.
The Gorgon Wraith only has an upgrade in stats and comes with no default polarities.
The Gorgon Wraith can use both the Desert Tactics skin and the Day of the Dead skin.
As with all Wraith weapons, only the energy color can be changed. Other colors may be selected, but will not show on the weapon, unless said weapon possesses a skin.
