The Gemini Driver is a reliable Kinetic weapon specialised for medium-range combat.
It fires a pair of thick blue shells with a fixed spread and reloads rather quickly.
Strategy and Setup
Gemini Drivers have excellent mass efficiency compared to other Kinetic weapons, allowing them to be more effective at close range. When paired with Phased Projectiles, enemies are almost guaranteed to lose a large chunk of their health even if they win.
Gemini Drivers also have relatively fast projectiles, this combined with their double-barreled nature vastly improves their accuracy against agile opponents, especially when boosted by Iridium Magnets.
Despite firing two projectiles at once, enemies can often cut the Gemini Driver's damage output in half by dodging just one out of two projectiles. Gemini Drivers also have a low maximum DPS, allowing other short-ranged weapons such as Thermal Beams to outmuscle them.
Gemini Drivers also have a rather short range that cannot be increased through specials, even Energy weapons outrange them when equipped with Focused Optics V.
- The Gemini Driver and Tempest Driver are the only Kinetic weapons that fire multiple shells in a single shot.
