Tempest is a heavy weapon which was released in the 2.9.1 update. Basically it is the Heavy equivalent of the Light Molot and Medium Molot Mk2, aka "Molot Mk3", due to the same fire dynamics and range. It also has the same accelerated state of fire after 3 seconds, and cannot penetrate any type of shield.
The Tempest (as well as Punishers and Molots) accelerate fire rate up to 1.5x usual speed, if fired continuously for longer time than 3 seconds. Accelerated state is disabled if firing is stopped for more than 1 second or ammo is depleted.
This weapon could be won at Black Market as of update 3.1.0.Currently after update 3.2.0 this weapon can be bought after collecting 10,000 tempest components.
