Corsair’s Wrath is a new Linear Fusion Rifle added to the game as part of Season of the Hunt. This is powerful, fast firing and could be very deadly in the right hands. Today I am going to go through the weapon stats, rolls to chase for PVP and PVE plus how to get the weapon. I;ll finish up with a little look at the lore, as all the season of the hunt weapons have some good text and storytelling to go along with them.
Corsair’s Wrath is a Legendary Power Linear Fusion Rifle which is a precision frame meaning it fires a long-range precision energy bolt. This weapon’s recoil pattern is more predictably vertical. For the stats, it’s got Impact 41, Range 41, Stability 44, Handling 32, Reload Speed 30, Charge Time 533 and 5 in the Magazine.
The curated roll comes with Kill Clip where reloading after a kill grants increased damage and also No Distractions where aiming this weapon for a short period reduces flinch. It also comes with Ionised Battery for increased magazine size and decreases in reload speed and finally Extended Barrel for an increase in range.
For PVP Quickdraw and Moving Target would be a good roll and for PVE Firmly Planted and Demolitionist would be good. The most popular roll out there with the community at the moment is Outlaw and Thresh, with Thresh being a great new perk this season which grants a small amount of super energy on kills. I’m not a huge fan of Linear Fusion Rifles but this one seems quick and pretty deadly, so it’s worth checking out.
How to get Corsair’s Wrath
To get this weapon you have to run Wrathborn Hunts, the new seasonal activity from Season of the Hunt. This can be a drop from the end, or ranking up at The Crow. To get access to Wrathborn Hunts you have to complete the opening mission of Season of the Hunt, run through the Wrathborn Hunt tutorial mission and then run some Wrathborn Hunts. I got one to drop for me on my first hunt, and then again from a rank up package from Crow, so the drops seem to be fairly generous.
Finally today let’s have a look at the lore for the weapon
Corsair’s Wrath lore
“We are only briefly Awoken. The rest of existence is an eternal dream.” —Sedia
The Corsair reloaded behind her improvised barricade as Shredder rounds sizzled overhead. She wished she had better cover. The Hall of Names hadn’t been constructed with defense in mind—apparently nobody dreamed the Awoken would be assaulted here.
She reloaded her fusion rifle and assessed their situation. It was dire. Unless Leona Bryl’s team managed to roll up the Hive’s southern flank, her squad would be overrun. At least the Hall of Names was a fitting place for a last stand.
She was six rounds short of a full clip. She turned to her left to ask Lira for extra ammo, only to discover her teammate slumped over, blue skin already going grey. The thick purple ichor of a soulfire round oozed from the hole in her chest. The Corsair gritted her teeth and looted Lira’s kit for ammo.
The Corsair finished reloading and popped her head back over the barricade. She downed three loping Acolytes in quick succession before even noticing the ogre looming in the background. It was enormous—at least seven meters high. She unloaded her fusion rifle into its face, trying to burrow rounds through its armored hide. She managed to blow off a chunk of its upper jaw before her rifle clicked empty.
The Corsair dove back behind her barricade, ammo spent. She looked around the Hall for the last time, admiring the elegant statues, her chest swelling with bittersweet pride. The faces of her people, Techeuns and Queens, presiding over the battle. She remembered what Sedia had said to her long ago, before things got out of control: “We are only briefly Awoken. The rest of our existence is an eternal dream. And in that dream, we will all—”
