Usage

It's simple to use this weapon. Simply shoot the enemies nearby so you get full 11 pellets damage on any body parts. Keep shooting to strip off that enemy armour. Headshot also works pretty well. After you proc alot of elemental, you can use any melee weapon with Condition Overload to finish off that enemy. If your Sobek kills an enemy, it will do Corrosive explosion from Acid Shell. With that said, use your melee till that enemy HP is very low then finish off with the Sobek. Targetting a very tanky enemy such as Bombard or Heavy Gunner is really a good strategy to kill mobs that is nearby them.

Variation

Mods

There are alot of variety you can go with this build. Replacing Vicious Spread for Chilling Reload or Frigid Blast to crowl control much easier. Replacing Shattering Justice for Blaze is also a good strategy, but only use this if you have cold mods on your build or else you won't have Corrosive damage.

Riven

  1. Required: +Damage, +Multishot, +Reload Speed, +Status Chance
  2. Recommended: +Firerate, +Elemental Damage, +Status Duration, +Recoil, +Zoom, -Fraction Damage

Weaknesses

  1. The weapon damage is pretty low as mission starts to scale higher the longer you go.
  2. Very long reload, even if you have Chilling Reload
  3. Fire-rate isn't fast enough
  4. Acid Shell's explosion is Corrosive based, so it won't work well to the Corpus.
