Either Kinetic is an energy type or Arbalest contradicts Destiny lore.
I just realized this after reading the Grimoire card [url=https://db.destinytracker.com/d1/grimoire/inventory/special-weapons/fusion-rifles]Fusion Rifles[/url]:
[quote]Advancements in directed [i]energy[/i] disbursement, gained through the discovery of Golden Age research, led to the creation of stable, field-ready [i]energy[/i]-based weaponry. The first implementation of this technology comes in the form of the Fusion Rifle. Users must hold the trigger down for a few moments to charge the weapon before firing.[/quote]
Wouldn't this mean that kinetic weapons could be equippable in the Energy slot?
