Bastion Intrinsic Traits
Bastion can be charged to fire 3 spreads of Kinetic slugs which allows it to fire more shots at the cost of one round.
This allows you to release a total of 21 bolts in a single burst (7 bolts per shot) to deal a lot of damage to targets.
The Saint’s Fist intrinsic trait makes the Bastion a powerful weapon during both PVE and especially in PVE when you can concentrate your shots.
The Bastion currently does not have a catalyst slot and it is unsure if this weapon will have one in the future.
Much like any other Fusion Rifle, Bastion is capable of dealing high amounts of damage but with the Saint’s Fist trait, it can deal even more.
The ability to unleash multiple shots with a single round provides players with the ability to cause serious damage, especially when doing precision shots.
Unstoppable combatants that you encounter will not stand a chance against this weapon as it staggers them and deals more damage.
