Origin Trait 

Dream Work

The Dream Work Origin Trait allows Something New to be partially refilled by assisted or assisted final blows, which has a chance to overflow the weapon.

This is great for when you are playing with a team as the additional ammunition can help you out when you are in the heat of battle.

Since Something New is a Hand Cannon, every shot counts, and having an extra amount in your magazine can make a huge difference, especially in PVP.

Intrinsic Trait

Aggressive Frame

The Aggressive Frame Intrinsic Trait provides Something New with higher damage, and higher recoil and makes it optimized for long-distance shooting.

This makes the weapon efficient even when being fired from a distance, making it excellent for PVP and even PVE sessions.

Aside from already being a powerful Hand Cannon, Something New can be utilized for taking enemies out from afar from time to time.


Hand Cannons have not always been a thing when it comes to PVE but for PVP, this weapon can be a big deal when used properly.

Although this weapon would most likely be used for PVP matches, it still does a good deal of damage and can be utilized in PVE.

Since this is a Stasis Hand Cannon, there can be certain benefits with the right builds for your character aside from Something New’s raw firepower.
