|The Fool’s Remedy is a Suros Rapid Fire Frame Solar Sidearm. This is the FIRST solar Suros sidearm and one of the best new energy weapon primary options there is for this season.

The Fool’s Remedy features the dynamic duo of PvE perk combinations; reload perk/damage perk. Being able to combine Kill Clip with perks like Subsistence, Feeding Frenzy and Fourth Times the Charm will turn this sidearm into an ad clear machine in PvE

|Onto the real contender for top weapon this season The Forward Path is a kinetic 600rpm auto rifle. Being in the same archetype as meta staples Summoner and Gnawing Hunter who aren’t only best in class but some of the best weapons in the crucible this season. The Forward Path takes everything good about The Summoner and everything good about Gnawing Hunger and combines them both in the kinetic slot. The Forward Path is going to be a monster in PvP with Dynamic Sway Reduction + Tap the Trigger turning the weapon into a laser of bullets. You can also get some really competitive PvE rolls on The Forward Path with the possibility of Feeding Frenzy/Fourth Times the Charm + Multikill Clip / Swashbuckler you’ll be able to mow down ads faster than they can come at you.|
