As you may already know, the Sealed Ahamkara Grasps is a Hunter exotic which reloads your equipped gun when a melee or melee ability deals damage to an enemy. This exotic perk was nerfed some time ago, because consecutive melee ability hits, such as the Blade Barrage knife burn effect, would trigger the reload constantly and create an auto reloading effect which at the time was just nerfed and no longer possible on the other classes. The solution was to add a seven second cooldown between activations of the perk, which made it essentially impossible to take advantage of the auto reload capabilities.

I have found a workaround which gives a pseudo auto reload effect and has no downtime in between shots unlike dodging to reload your weapon, or throwing a grenade if it has Demolitionist. Here is an example using

The Fourth Horseman. In this clip, I shoot ten shots with no reload by taking advantage of the downtime created when activating the SAG reload perk.

Here is a breakdown of how it works: the Corrosive Smoke melee ability on the Way of the Wraith deals several ticks of damage over the duration of around five seconds. Activating the SAG perk takes at least one second due to the melee animation, and coincidentally the Corrosive damage lasts just barely long enough to reload your gun on the final tick of damage. Here is an example.

Now, with this knowledge, I decided to test with several different weapons. Single fire weapons are kind of useless, seeing as you'd have to wait an entire seven seconds again to activate the reload, so you'd be better off using the other dodge option. Each weapon requires different timing. For example, the Prospector requires you to wait a moment before firing, or else you will run out of ammo in the magazine before the reload activates. With Merciless, however, you can immediately begin firing because it takes longer to empty the magazine.

I found out later on that you don't have to delay the smoke grenade throw, it's really only the timing of firing your gun that matters. For longer ranged enemies or riskier encounters, you can even do the same thing by using two smoke grenades.

I hope people can experiment more with this and find some viable uses, because it's a very satisfying and very powerful ability to have when the stars align. To end it off, here are a few other weapons I tested out. Chaperone, Truth,
Borealis, and the crazy recoil of
The Fourth Horseman.

If you made it this far, thank you for reading. Although it's pretty niche and gimmicky, I think this technique could really help some weapons shine. I hope to see more people test it out with other weapons/fireteam sizes on bosses. I've been able to successfully use it on bosses in the Strike playlist quite a few times.

Edit: I forgot to mention that the Corrosive Smoke for some reason does not apply damage over time if you try and combine it with the Flawless Execution weakening melee. It may be bugged.
