Wave of Light – The First Descendant

While most of Albion’s Scout Rifles use .318 Magnum Rounds, the Wave of Light uses special .328 Lightning Rounds. The .328 Lightning Round got its name due to the flash of light that appears the moment the firing pin hits the detonator. This light was the reason it could not be used for night operations, despite its high lethality. They simply could not risk being detected by the enemy.

However, that drawback was offset when it was used in the Wave of Light, for the weapon was designed to react with Arche and emit a brilliant light. The .328 Lightning Round only helped in blinding the enemies. Still, the .328 Lightning Round is not considered mainstream.
