AcquisitionEdit

This weapon was first introduced from the Tethra's Doom event, awarded for scoring 500+ points in a hijack mission, complete with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

The Gorgon Wraith was awarded again from an alert in the Infested Nightmares Bonus Weekend, once again with a free weapon slot, but did not come with a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

On May 9, 2017, Hotfix 20.4.4 and Hotfix 20.4.5, a bug allowed Gorgon Wraith parts to drop from Jackal. This was a very short-lived bug, but dissemination of information on the forum allowed many users to learn of and exploit this bug before DE quickly corrected it. The parts and weapon were not removed from users' inventories.

The blueprint and parts are now obtainable from the Razorback Invasion via Assassination. All the components can be traded, although players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 7 to acquire the blueprint.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • After the spool up time, it is possible to use the Gorgon in quick short bursts, allowing you to keep up the high rate of fire, but with less recoil and less bullets wasted, making the Gorgon usable at medium to long ranges.
  • You can retain the "charge" of the fire rate by sprinting. This way the weapon stops shooting but as long as you keep LMB  held down, the fire rate will not reset and the weapon will resume fast firing once you stop sprinting.
  • Use the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod or the Carrier Sentinel equipped with Ammo Case to compensate for lost ammo due to the weapons high rate of consuming ammunition on full spool.
  • Speed Trigger decreases the charge time considerably, though the increased maximum fire rate causes the weapon to burn through ammo reserves extremely quickly and cause more misses as the recoil throws bullets out more. Consider firing in bursts.
  • Compared to the Prisma variant, the Wraith has a better status chance, which allows it to remove armor from Grineer which allows it to surpass the Prisma Gorgon despite higher damage numbers. Against Grineer with no armor or almost any other faction however, the Prisma will produce more reliable damage.

TriviaEdit

  • The Gorgon Wraith is the second Primary Wraith weapon ever released, following the Strun Wraith.
  • The Gorgon Wraith only has an upgrade in stats and comes with no default polarities.
  • The Gorgon Wraith can use both the Desert Tactics skin and the Day of the Dead skin.
