1. Telesto (PvE, PvP)

Vestiges of the Queen's Harbingers yet linger among Saturn's moons.

Telesto’s exotic perk allows its projectiles to attach and explode, which are handy when facing groups of enemies. Players who use this fusion rifle often like to say, “Telesto is the besto.” I’m sorry if that made you cringe. Thankfully, it doesn’t affect me much because all I am is cringe. Telesto does great in all activities, I highly recommend it.
