Destiny Assault Rifle 2

Basic appearance of a pulse rifle.

Pulse rifles are a class of primary weapons in Destiny characterized by burst-fire mechanisms and medium-range effectiveness.

Pulse rifles typically fire in three-round bursts. Häkke pulse rifles fire in four-round bursts, but the four rounds together do roughly the same amount of damage as a three-round burst.[1]
