Destiny: The Taken King players are likely pleased over getting their hands on the Sleeper Simulant fusion rifle. But was it worth the trouble?

In the video above, Arekkz gives you his review on the weapon which he calls precise, more suited for PvE, and a nice gun despite the limited ammo.

Arekkz says the weapon genuinely feels Exotic and thanks to maxed out impact it hits like a truck; however, it has the ammo capacity of a rocket launcher, so you will need to use it sparingly.

“It’s a precise weapon, so critical hits from a heavy weapon will always be an added bonus on the damage front,” he says. “And if you’re in an environment that supports the ricochet bullets, then you can clear out a room quite nicely; however, for single targets, i.e. bosses, this feature ends up going to waste a little.

“It’s definitely more of a PvE weapon than PvP – in the Crucible, given the ammo it’s not really a top tier choice. Yes, it will kill in one hit. But because of the limited ammo and no splash damage, it doesn’t have any advantages over a rocket launcher – aside from the situational ability to ricochet kill someone.

“Either way, it’s a nice gun, one of the better ones out there, but perhaps not the best.”
