What is Crackdown 3's Oblivion Gun?

The Oblivion Singularity Initiator is a good gun. A shot fires out a singularity that attracts enemies and objects towards it before it explodes. Your agent's power determines just how big the objects are that can be attracted. The Oblivion gun is great against pretty much anything but the largest mechs and vehicles.
