The uniquely styled Viper Wraith is a powerful variation on the standard machine-pistols.

The Viper Wraith is the Wraith version of the Viper.pngViper that has higher damage with a slight boost to DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact damage in exchange for lower DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash, and higher critical chance, larger magazine size, and better accuracy, but with reduced status chance and reload speed.
