Proprietary License Weapon Overview

This HYPERION SMG has some unique perks which can be fun to use. Upon doing Headshots it ricochets bullets dealing damage to nearby enemies. Doing Bodyshots will stick the pellets and enable the sticky bomb feature. They will then blow up dealing more damage to the enemies around them. This can be a great option for crowd control as well.
You can simply spam the trigger and the burst fire will become Automatic fire without any delay in between shots. This means that the weapon being a burst fire type, can be used as an Auto Fire. We would definitely recommend this weapon with any meta vault hunter builds to melt enemies easily.


That will be all!
