|Weapon Type||Assault Rifles|
Phaeston is an Assault Rifle in Mass Effect 3. Assault Rifles are one of the six types of Weapons available in Mass Effect 3 and they excel at mid to long distance combat. Weapons in Mass Effect 3 are used to inflict damage to both Enemies or Bosses alongside Powers. Unlike the previous game, Classes do not limit the type of weaponry at your disposal.
Named after a Turian spirit of creation, the Phaeston was engineered to provide the best possible balance between accuracy and firepower in a machine gun. Each shot is tempered by kickback dampeners inside the shoulder stock, which lets the Phaeston pack more punch than other weapons its size without sacrificing precision. Its fully automatic fire and relatively light weight has turned the Phaeston into the Turian infantry's primary go-to weapon.
