The Pulse Rifle is a good beginner weapon. It shoots at a fast pace of 513 RPM, and it does a good amount of damage. It is not very expensive and does not decrease the player's speed, which are other factors why this gun should be obtained for beginners. Its projectiles are bright orange. Every third projectile is slightly inaccurate, this is referred to in the gun's description as an "expanding wave pattern." This makes it easier to hit enemies, although it can also cause accuracy problems.
