It sure is a capable weapon and comes in two variants, the Epic and the Mythic. To be fair, the upgraded version of the weapon is the better one, for obvious reasons.

More about the Pulse Rifle

It is a hit-scan weapon with first-shot accuracy and is ideal for mid-range brawls. It can be deadly in close quarter fights but a shotgun is more preferable. You can also use it in long-range but it takes the effectiveness by a little. The weapons shoot in fully automatic in hip-fire mode but once it is scoped in, i.e. aiming down sight, the fire rates slow by a few margins.
