"Omolon's newest breakthrough uses focused sonic waves to superheat electrons into a devastating energy beam."
— Weapon description

Wavesplitter is an Exotic Trace Rifle introduced in Forsaken.


  • Harmonic Laser: Laser damage has three power levels that oscillate while the trigger is held down.
  • Polygonal Rifling: Barrel optimized for recoil reduction. Increases stability.
  • Enhanced Battery: Strong battery life. Increases magazine size.
  • Supercharged Battery: Collecting an Orb of Light grants a short period of maximum power that starts with an automatic reload.
  • Fitted Stock: This stock makes the weapon stable but heavy. Increases stability. Moderately controls recoil. Slightly decreases handling speed.


From the makers of the Coldheart comes the latest in breakthrough City Age technology: the Wavesplitter. Here are the three most frequently asked questions we get about our revolutionary weaponized sound system.

Q: If the Wavesplitter fires sound waves, does it need ammo packs?

A: The Wavesplitter does need ammo packs, but the onboard matter transmuter turns that ammo into electrical energy that powers the waveform emitter.

Q: What does it sound like when you're hit by it?

A: Our Guardian testers give us many different answers. Some say it sounds like a scream you hear in your bones. Others say it sounds like a dying star. Still others say it reminds them of a knife shaped like a B flat.

Q: Can the Wavesplitter be used as a musical instrument?

A: The Wavesplitter was not designed to be a musical instrument. That said, we at Omolon are in the business of giving Guardians options, not taking them away.
