Wave of Light in The First Descendant

Scout Rifles provide a nice balance between range and impact, capable of outputting competitive DPS in The First Descendant. Wave of Light is one of the best examples of this, so here’s everything you need to know about getting the most out of the gun.

We put Wave of Light in the B-Tier in our recent list of the Ultimate Weapons in The First Descendant. Though it’s not able to keep up with Assault Rifles and SMGs in terms of raw damage output, the increased range does make it a much safer player.

In addition, it’s a lot easier to consistently hit Weak Points, which can play perfectly into Descendant abilities and the loadouts of your teammates. With all of that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about Wave of Light.

Wave of Light stats

  • Stats: 
    • ATK: 76
    • Fire Rate: 249
    • Reload Time: 2.2 seconds
    • Splendor: After reloading, it grants the unique ability of Solar Halo. On hitting an enemy while Solar Halo is active, inflict Lunar Halo on the target enemy with a set chance.

It’s important to note that the stats above act as a Level 1 baseline for the weapon. All can be changed via the use of modules and leveling the weapon up, so the stats are best used as a comparison point to other Level 1 weapons of the same type.

Best Descendant for Wave of Light

Bunny in The First Descendant

Wave of Light is the ultimate generalist weapon and is entirely suitable for any Descendant as a result. That said, the best option in terms of synergy is Bunny, and you should have a blast using the two in tandem.

Bunny’s impressive movement speed and traversal prowess should enable you to get into the position to hit Weak Points continuously. This will allow you to get the most out of your DPS rotation when Wave of Light is involved.
