Acquisition[edit | edit source]

This weapon was first introduced from the Tethra's Doom event, awarded for scoring 500+ points in a hijack mission, complete with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

The Gorgon Wraith was awarded again from an alert in the Infested Nightmares Bonus Weekend, once again with a free weapon slot, but did not come with a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

On May 9, 2017, Hotfix 20.4.4 and Hotfix 20.4.5, a bug allowed Gorgon Wraith parts to drop from Jackal. This was a very short-lived bug, but dissemination of information on the forum allowed many users to learn of and exploit this bug before DE quickly corrected it. The parts and weapon were not removed from users' inventories.

The blueprint and parts are now obtainable from the Razorback Invasion via Assassination. All the components can be traded, although players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 7 to acquire the blueprint.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Gorgon Wraith is the second Primary Wraith weapon ever released, following the WraithStrun.png 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.
