Fires in Unique 4-Projectile Pattern

The Polybius releases 4-projectiles per shot that follows a unique pattern. It goes vertical then horizontal, making aiming a bit hard for this weapon.

High DPS Due to Fast Fire Rate

With how fast its fire rate is, it's quite easy to mistake the Polybius for an SMG instead of a Shotgun. This definitely amps up its DPS so long as you're able to land your shots.

Explodes or Becomes a Turret when Reloaded

Similar to other Tediore Weapons, the Polybius can either explode when it hits an enemy or stick to a surface and becomes a turret. Turrrets will fire at enemies until it runs out of bullets.

Comes in Different Elements

The Polybius can spawn with as any one of the elemental types. It's entirely random which one it will come in though.
