Gauss weapons in the game are an improved type of regular conventional weapons with physical damage. Their damage and penetration are particularly high. Such weapons usually don't belong just to one class, they often combine two classes together; gauss and something else. There is a gauss pistol, shotgun, rifle, assault rifle, and even a machine gun, all of which are powerful. The unique feature of this class is that it's not for low-level heroes, there are almost no low-level weapons. The only low (relatively) level weapon here is called Prototype, and it's not the most reliable one. You most likely would need to switch to a gauss weapon from another class at some point in the mid-game, if you want to successfully use it. Special perk Magnetic will improve all gauss weapons for you.
