The Gorgon Wraith is a powerful variant of its precursor that features unique styling.

The Gorgon Wraith is the Wraith variant of the Gorgon.png Gorgon, featuring a slight increase in damage, accuracy, fire rate, status chance, and magazine size, at the cost of critical rate.

  • Has a short wind-up time of 6 rounds to reach optimal firing rate.
    • Fire rate starts at 20% of the listed value, and increases by 16% per shot.

Advantages:

  • Fully Spooled
    • High magazine
    • Very high effective fire rate
    • High max ammo
    • Above average disposition

Disadvantages:

  • Spool-up creates a warm-up period of weakness for fire rate, making short engagements undesirable.

    • Low reload speed

Comparisons:

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

Tips[]

  • 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 medium-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 Mod TT 20px.png Rifle Ammo Mutation mod or the Carrier Sentinel equipped with Mod TT 20px.png Ammo Case to compensate for lost ammo due to the weapon's high rate of fire consuming ammunition on full spool.
  • Mod TT 20px.png 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.

Trivia[]

  • The Gorgon Wraith was first introduced during 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 (2017-05-08) and Hotfix 20.4.5 (2017-05-09), 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 Gorgon Wraith is the second Primary Wraith weapon ever released, following the StrunWraith.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.
