The Cyclone is a mid-range (up to 600 meters) betaenergy weapon. It serves as the beta variant of the Scourge family.
The Cyclone is an energy weapon that can function up to 600 meters, but it is idealized in close-quarters combat, from 300 meters. The reason for this is that it has an exclusive trait-Close Combat-which allows it to increase damage as it moves towards the target, but by no means is the effective range the maximum range of the Cyclone.
The Cyclone is extremely versatile compared to its other Titan weapon competitors. Unlike the Retaliator, which functions only semi-well at all ranges, the Cyclone can be utilized in any sort of range, with severe damage in close-quarters and noticeable damage at mid-range, but still falling behind the Cuirassier.
