Beacon weapon Overview

This MALIWAN Pistol is a small but effective legendary. When you reload, you trigger a Nova of the current weapon element. The lower the magazine clip, the higher the Nova damage. The weapon fires small blobs in the form of bullets, which do splash damage. So be careful while using the weapon near you.
With the correct builds, you can use Beacon optimally. If you do not use the correct build, you can struggle with the damage output of the weapon. Anything which does crit damage is decent enough to support the weapon. But still, in its current state, it is only limited to medium crowd control. If you wish to use it in TVHM mode at Mayhem level 10, you are in for a world of hurt. Experiment around and use it with a build suitable for your playstyle.


That will be all!
