The Sandstorm is an assault rifle.

Description[edit | edit source]

A highly accurate rifle, the Sandstorm was developed by exiles from the Nexus after their arrival in Heleus. The design of the semi-automatic weapon has been streamlined and appears to adapt certain non-Initiative technologies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The single-player stats shown on this page are baseline: Initiative I armor, no skill points assigned, no profile active.

The following augmentations cannot be applied to the Sandstorm during development:

It is advised not to apply the Electrical Conduits augmentation to the Sandstorm due to an automatic firing problem. (See here for details.)

The Sandstorm Tiers I-IX use the Rare resource Vanadium. At Tier X, the requirement changes to the Ultra Rare resource Element Zero.

The multiplayer stats shown are accurate as of Multiplayer Update - November 7, 2018.

All multiplayer specialized variant weapons are separate weapons compared to the Rare version.

Due to the different versions of the Sandstorm in multiplayer, it is possible to equip multiple versions at the same time in the Loadout screen.
