Weapons have perks associated with them which boost their natural capabilities.
Weapons have an intrinsic perk and up to 4 perk columns. The number of available perk columns is dependent on the rarity of the weapon. Each perk column has specific perk types which inhabit them. Perks on legendary weapons are randomly rolled from perk pools unique to each gun.
Every weapon has an intrinsic perk, typically a Weapon Frame. Weapons Frames are responsible for determining the damage values for a gun and its Rounds Per Minute. Additionally, some weapon frames provide additional utility.
Exotics weapons instead get an exotic intrinsic perk, such as Delayed Gratification or Memento Mori. These intrinsic perks occupy the same slot as where a weapon frame would normally go. They provide much more utility than a normal frame, enough to be analagous to an extra weapon trait.
