Screaming Swarm

This provides you with quicker reloading speed as well as gives you more rounds to fire before reloading when enemies die from the poison final blows of the weapon.

Enemies who are close together are sure to suffer from this weapon, making it easy to take out large numbers in a small amount of time.

The Osteo Striga’s projectiles may be slower than most, but their ability to track enemies makes them very useful in many situations.
