Characteristics[edit | edit source]
This weapon deals primarily Puncture damage.

- Very high critical chance.
- High critical multiplier.
- Heavy Attack kills increases the weapon's attack speed by 50% for 2 to 46 seconds, scaling with Combo Multiplier.

- Each stack has its own duration and will wear off separately, similar to Berserker.

The Pennant's main blueprint can be obtained from defeating Blite Captain, Glacik Commander, Lektro Commander, or Pyr Captain in Empyrean missions (at Kasio's Rest on Saturn Proxima, Flexa in Veil Proxima, or sometimes Korms Belt in Earth Proxima). The blueprint pickup is shared across the entire squad and can be traded between players.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Upon killing an enemy with a heavy attack, Pennant's attack speed rises by 50%, indicated via an icon and timer next to the health bar. The buff duration is dependent on the combo multiplier at the time of the heavy attack, beginning at 2 seconds with no combo counter and increasing by 4 seconds for each combo multi; Duration = 4s × (Combo Multi - 1) + 2s. This gives a maximum duration of 46 seconds at a 12x combo multi.
- Making multiple heavy attack kills within the buff's duration will grant additional buffs, each having their own duration.
- Multiple buffs stack additively with each other.
