  • Relatively small magazine size.
  • Fairly low reload speed.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.
  • Inaccurate beyond short range when fired from the hip.
  • Very short shot combo decay timer.


Weapon Loadouts


  • The Rubico has the highest critical multiplier of any sniper rifle, with a base multiplier of 3x.
    • On the other hand, it has a dismal status chance of 12%, being the lowest for all the sniper rifles. This is compared to the 20-30% of the other sniper rifles, a considerable difference.
    • The crit damage bonus from zooming is treated in the damage calculation like a respective mod. Therefore, it is additive with mods like {{#vardefine:Name|Vital Sense}}{{M}} "{{#var:Name}}" not found, {{#vardefine:Name|Hammer Shot}}{{M}} "{{#var:Name}}" not found, and {{#vardefine:Name|Bladed Rounds}}{{M}} "{{#var:Name}}" not found.
  • It closely resembles the Grineer x19px Vulkar in terms of damage type distribution and other stats; the main difference being the Rubico has higher critical stats, while having lower status, base damage, and magazine.
  • The Rubico requires only a single shot to activate its Shot Combo Counter, giving it an immediate 1.5x total damage multiplier on the first shot, and a 2.0x total damage multiplier after its third shot, giving it the ability to quickly ramp up its damage with a single magazine. On the other hand, it has a short combo decay counter that lasts only 2 seconds, thus reloading at 2.4 seconds will always lower its shot combo counter if there are no reload mods present
  • The combo multiplier starts at 1.5x on the first shot and requires triple the amount of shots to reach each consecutive tier.

$ \mathrm{Multiplier} = 1.5 + 0.5 \lfloor \log_3(\mathrm{Combo\ hits}) \rfloor $


  • Rubico is a clay made from crushed basalt that is used to build tennis courts, with its green color being similar to the default color of this weapon.
  • The Rubico appears to share an aesthetic with the x19px Talons thrown bombs and x19px Lacera bladed whip, both of which are also included in the Huntress Bundle.


  • It seems as though there is a chance for a bullet to not hit its mark, even when scoped in.
