On PS4 it's the right shoulder button. Hold until fully charged, point and let go. Pew pew!

Is it used more like a Charged Shot Close Ranged Weapon? It fires only 1 Blast right?

Do you have to aim it properly to use, or does it have Homing Properties?

homes in slightly...say you jump above an outlaw grunt, and you shoot it approximately at the body… then it will likely be a headshot

Pulse blast is a detonator, something that finishes a combo. I use it with an ice grenade or sticky bomb as the primer first. Great for large enemies like titans. Hit them with the grenade then the pulse blast within a couple of seconds and bam!


To use:
-Hold down on the controller key that pulse blast is mapped to and aim at the enemy (I use Xbox so for me it's right bumper)
-You will see a dot with a curved line under it appear on the screen
-Make sure your targeted enemy appears between the ends of the curved line, sitting above the bottom of the curve. I aim the dot right at them. This part isn't hard as most enemies are way bigger than the curved line
-Release the button, watch them die, and repeat. 


Pulse blast is a great weapon as it has a short cool down and seems to damage all levels of enemies. Later, there will be variations of it available that are masterwork and legendary. I have the masterwork version and it's more powerful and has some great engravings. Good luck fellow Ranger!
