Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Missiles have homing properties, allowing the whole salvo to reliably hit small and/or agile targets such as Ospreys.
    • In the event the target dies before the missiles reach it, the missiles will continue to travel in a straight line.
  • Starts to target enemies that come within ~30m of the companion.
  • MOA companions equipped with this weapon will fire a volley only after the previous volley hit. [Needs Testing]
    • This appears to not be the case, at least when testing in Captura, however, it appears MOAs will 'lose interest' in a target if the player does not continue to target it. This appears to happen faster than with other companions, with MOAs firing, on average, three bursts, and sentinels firing approximately five before losing interest.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Mod TT 20px.pngFirestorm and Mod TT 20px.pngPrimed Firestorm will increase the small blast radius on impact, increasing it to almost 4 meters with the Primed version.
  • Building for Radiation b.png Radiation and Viral b.png Viral will allow for good crowd control and assist in boosting damage, due to its high status chance, as opposed to being a damage dealing weapon like most companion weapons.
