Jotunn Intrinsic Traits

Charge Shot

You can fire a charged shot by holding down the trigger to charge up a tracking shot that explodes and burns on impact.

This is great for firing when you are in motion and makes up for the difficulty in handling Fusion Rifles due to the charge and burst to fire they have.

The exploding damage is great for taking out enemies and the additional burn damage is great for more damage per second.

Jotunn Catalyst

There is no Jotunn Catalyst right now and there may be none in the future as this weapon seems to already be in its final stage.


One of the difficulties players have when using Fusion Rifles is the handling but with the Jotunn , things are slightly different and easier.

While the Jotunn fires in the same way as most Fusion Rifles, it has its Charge Shot intrinsic trait which it can use to fire tracking shots.

Up close, the Jotunn is very powerful as it is the second-highest damaging Exotic Fusion Rifle, with only a small damage difference from the highest.
