The Phenmor an Incarnon cerominial rifle that has been evolved from exposure to the Void to become more powerful. This means that even though it's a semi-automatic rifle in its standard form, after hitting headshots it will temporarily transform to become a fully automatic weapon that deals bonus radiation damage. You'll need to hit 12 headshots to activate this form, and it will last until the 408 round magazine is expired, or you press alt fire. 

In its standard mode it deals mostly slash damage but also deals some puncture damage that is removed in the Incarnon form. In addition to this extra form, the weapon itself can be evolved up to five times by meeting certain criteria and visiting the Cavalero character to choose perks - our breakdown for finding him is located below.
