Description & Usage

The projectile pattern of the Occultist.

The Occultist is a very powerful weapon. Due to the explosive properties of the projectile(s), it can consistently deal large amounts of damage. It may be more useful to target the ground under an enemy rather than the enemy itself, as the additional swirling projectiles have a steep arc and may veer off-course, essentially crippling the damage output of the weapon. 


  • The Occultist always spawns with the Double Penetrating prefix, and is always incendiary element.
