Fusion rifles are powerhouses of damage in PvE. Packing both high burst damage and high overall damage into one weapon has given the fusion a consistent role in damage phases. They do require being close to your target than you may like so they can be situational. However, even with these restrictions, fusions are some of the best special weapons for PvE.

With a strong selection of PvE perks, you will be hard pressed to find a combination of perks that doesn’t work well on the Eremite. However, one perk combination stands out among the rest which is Envious Assassin and Controlled Burst. With these two perks you will constant have a massive magazine and a nice damage perk capable of pumping out massive damage.

Overall, high impact frames can feel lackluster due to their longer charge time, they do pack a massive punch to offset its negative. Regardless, if you don’t have a good fusion rifle already this is a great option.

The Eremite PvP God Roll

Our choices for the The Eremite PvP God Roll are:

BarrelArrowhead Brake
BatteryParticle Repeater
Column 3 TraitSlickdraw
Column 4 TraitCornered

Fusion rifles are a strong close range special weapon capable of one shotting enemies from twenty or more meters away. They do require some aim and accuracy, but they far exceed the range of shotgun one shot kills. Used often to deal with overly aggressive enemies or shotgun rushing Titans, fusion rifles are quite potent weapons in the right hands.

The Eremite doesn’t hold the strongest perk pool for PvP, but it does have one selection that stands out. Slickdraw and Cornered are a great combination with high stability to allow the weapon to be insanely accurate and deadly. With a long charge time it is recommended to pre-charge the weapon before the enemies push you. This allows you to get off your shots as soon as you see the enemies allowing you to succeed in most engagements.
