Summary

The Gorgon is a burst assault rifle that excels at keeping pressure on enemies at further ranges. It is unlocked through Osiris and is an Epic item.

Attachments

The Gorgon can have 6 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapons type, so only attachments that have Assault Rifle as a category can be installed onto a Gorgon.

In-Game Description

A powerful beam rifle that requires charging up before firing. Not the easiest to handle, but lethal in proper hands.

Lore

The Zeus' little sister, the Gorgon may not be as devastating, but its glare can leave any target petrified in place. And crispy.
