Alternate Fire (Alt-Fire for short, also known as Secondary Fire) is a feature of some weapons that performs a different action than their normal fire modes or interacts with their primary fire mode in some way. As of Update 17.0 (2015-07-31), Alternate fire can be bound to a dedicated button/key (default Mouse3  on PC and R. Thumbstick  on PSN, XBX and NSW).

Weapons with Alternate Fire[]

Primary Weapons[]

Weapon Alternate Fire
Aeolak
Aeolak Aeolak
  • Charges an explosive projectile that explodes in a 7 meter radius on impacting a surface with significantly higher damage and added DmgBlastSmall64 Blast damage, at the expense of DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage and punch through.
    • Consumes 10 rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than 10 rounds in the magazine.
Afentis
Afentis Afentis
  • Throws the Afentis to 50 meters. If it hits an enemy, they are impaled against the surface for 20 seconds. If it does not hit an enemy, the spear leaves a field that buffs allied Tenno with Ballistari Might, doubling reload speed, fire rate, and reserve ammo, and halving recoil.
    • Impalement lasts for 20 seconds. Ballistari Might field lasts for 10 seconds and has a 5-meter radius.
    • Killing an enemy within the field maintains the buff for 40 seconds which counts down upon leaving the field.
    • Only one spear can be deployed at a time. Throwing the spear again will remove existing spears.
    • Throw consumes 1 round of ammunition, then reloads the weapon.
Alternox
Alternox Alternox
  • Launches a sphere that sticks to surfaces and enemies, then pulses over 6 meters once per second over 10 seconds before exploding.
    • Only one sphere can be active at a time. Activating Alternate Fire with an active sphere will prematurely detonate it.
    • Consumes 4 rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than 4 rounds in the magazine.
Ambassador
Ambassador Ambassador
  • Toggles between Automatic and Charge firing modes.
    • Automatic rapid-fires electric shots with extreme fire rate.
    • Charge charges an explosive round that explodes in a 6 meter radius on impacting with a surface with significantly higher damage, critical chance, and status chance.
      • Consumes 48 rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than 48 rounds in the magazine.
    • Unlike other mode-switching Alternate Fires the Ambassador's mode-switching is not instantaneous, taking 2.6 seconds to swap between firing modes, and can be interrupted by rolling or using abilities. However, mode-switching will also reload the weapon.
    • By default, the Ambassador starts any given mission as a Automatic.
Argonak
Argonak Argonak
  • Toggles between Automatic and Semi-Automatic firing modes.
    • The Semi-Automatic firing mode has higher damage, critical chance, zoom level, and status chance over the Automatic, at the expense of fire rate.
    • By default, the Argonak starts any given mission as a Semi-Automatic.
Battacor
Battacor Battacor
  • Charges a powerful beam with width of 0.5 meters, creating a 3.4 meter area of effect explosion on impact with an enemy and a 6 meter explosion on impact with a surface.
  • Consumes 0 ammunition and requires a brief charging period before it can fire.
    • Rather than consuming ammunition, the Alternate Fire uses up "charges" gained from killing enemies with the primary fire, with each charge multiplying the damage dealt. The Battacor can store up to 3 charges and all charges are consumed when using the Alternate Fire.
Basmu
Basmu Basmu
  • Fires two continuous beams of that travel up to 9 meters, chaining up to 5 enemies within a 7 meter radius.
Bubonico

    • The beacon will last for 20 seconds, the target the beacon is attached to dies, or until a new beacon is fired.
    • If the beacon attaches to an enemy, the weapon gains an additive 50% to its critical chance for the duration of the beacon.
  • Consumes 10 rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than 10 rounds in the magazine.
Cedo
Cedo Cedo
  • Launches a ricocheting glaive that explodes in a 6 meter radius on impacting a surface after each ricochet.

  • The beams will continuously sweep as long as the Alternate Fire key/button is held down. Releasing it will make the beams return to their original position.
Corinth
Corinth Corinth
  • Fires a grenade that detonates after traveling 20 meters, dealing DmgBlastSmall64 Blast damage in an 9.4 meter area of effect with a guaranteed proc.
    • If the shot hits an enemy before it detonates, the shot will instead deal reduced DmgImpactSmall64 Impact damage to that enemy with a guaranteed proc, and if it hits a solid object, it will bounce off harmlessly. Both interactions cannot be overcome with punch through.
    • Grenade has much higher damage and status chance at the expense of critical chance and critical multiplier.
CorinthPrime
CorinthPrime Corinth Prime
  • Fires a grenade, and pressing Alternate Fire again will manually detonate the grenade, dealing DmgBlastSmall64 Blast damage in an 9.8 meter area of effect with a guaranteed proc.

However, it no longer has multishot, and has decreased damage, fire rate, and status chance.
  • Rather than consuming ammunition, the Alternate Fire uses a charge gauge gained from scoring headshots that reaches full after 12 headshots and does not require a full gauge to activate, with its own "magazine" of 2 rounds per charge to a maximum of 60.
    • Prematurely deactivating Incarnon Form will consume the entire gauge.
Ferrox
Ferrox Ferrox
TenetFerrox
TenetFerrox Tenet Ferrox
  • Throws the Ferrox up to 50 meters, dealing DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity damage in a 10 meter area of effect. Every 2 seconds, the Ferrox generates an DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity pulse that damages enemies and passively pulls them closer to the Ferrox.

      • Consumes 10 rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than 10 rounds in the magazine.
    • Automatic fires a continuous stream of lightning that has pinpoint accuracy, faster fire rate, and slightly higher critical multiplier, but with slightly lower critical chance and lower status chance.
    • Unlike other mode-switching Alternate Fires the Fulmin's mode-switching is not instantaneous, taking 1 second to swap between firing modes, and can be interrupted by rolling or using abilities.
      • If used by WispIcon272 Wisp, the time to switch between firing modes is reduced to 0.5 seconds, though it can still be interrupted.
    • By default, the Fulmin starts any given mission as a Semi-Automatic.

    • Compared to the primary fire the orb is largely identical, but both the orb itself and its chains deal more damage while firing the orb itself has reduced Fire Rate.
    • Alternate fire can trigger any Tome Mods currently installed.
  • Consumes no ammunition when used, but it uses up a charge bar displayed below the reticle, and takes 45 seconds to recharge the alternate fire. It can be reduced either by hitting enemies with the primary fire or picking up secondary or universal ammo pickups.

  • Manually detonates any airborne torpedoes, dealing DmgBlastSmall64 Blast damage in an area of effect and launching 3 bomblets that spread from the point of detonation.
    • Will only function if there are any torpedoes airborne.
KuvaKraken
KuvaKraken Kuva Kraken
  • Fires all remaining ammunition in the magazine as a quick burst, forcing the player to reload afterwards.
    • Duration of the burst is affected by Magazine size and can be increased or decreased accordingly. In the event that the player gains infinite ammunition (such as the appropriate Reactant Buff), the burst will only last the Kuva Kraken's maximum magazine size.
    • Damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, and status chance from the burst is identical compared to the primary fire, but it suffers from reduced accuracy, and the player cannot zoom in while burst-firing.
Laetum
Laetum Laetum
  • Activates the weapon's Incarnon Form, transforming from semi-auto to full-auto with increased fire rate, reduced recoil, increased DmgImpactSmall64 Impact damage at the cost of removing DmgSlashSmall64 Slash, and shots explode in a 2 meter radius inflicting DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage.
  • Rather than consuming ammunition, the Alternate Fire uses a charge gauge gained from scoring headshots that reaches full after 12 headshots and does not require a full gauge to activate, with its own "magazine" of 18 rounds per charge to a maximum of 216.
    • Prematurely deactivating Incarnon Form will consume the entire gauge.
Noctua
Noctua Noctua
(From Noctua130xWhite Noctua)
  • Launches a rapid, wide wave that deals damage as it travels, lasting until it hits a surface.
    • The wave has Infinite Body Punch Through and 1.4 meters of Punch Through against surfaces.
    • Compared to the primary fire the wave deals DmgImpactSmall64 Impact and DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation damage rather than DmgSlashSmall64 Slash, and has improved damage, critical stats, and status chance in exchange for a reduced Fire Rate.
    • Alternate fire can trigger any Tome Mods currently installed, and kills can scan enemies into the Codex while benefiting from DanteIcon272 Dante's Chronicler's Mark debuff against fully-scanned enemies.
  • Consumes no energy when used, but it uses up a charge bar displayed below the reticle, and takes 60 seconds to recharge the alternate fire. It can be reduced either by hitting enemies with the primary fire or picking up secondary or universal ammo pickups.
    • Primary ammo pickups converted with (Mod TT 20px Primed)Mod TT 20px Pistol Ammo Mutation will not affect recharge rate. However, duplicates of the Noctua generated with FinalVerse130xWhite Wordwarden will contribute to the recharge rate.
Onos
Onos Onos
  • Activates the weapon's Incarnon Form, transforming from dealing DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture damage, to firing a cone of DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation that narrows down before unleashing a DmgFireSmall64 Heat beam.
    • Compared to the Normal mode, the Radiation cone has a faster fire rate in exchange for reduced damage, critical stats and status chance, while the Heat beam deals more damage and sports improved critical stats and status chance. The beam also sports 5 meters of Punch Through and explodes in a 3 meter radius.
  • Rather than consuming ammunition, the Alternate Fire uses a charge gauge gained from scoring headshots that reaches full after 12 headshots and does not require a full gauge to activate, with its own "magazine" of 30 rounds per charge to a maximum of 350.
    • Compared to other Incarnon modes, the Onos's Incarnon mode consumes 1 round per every tick of damage while charging, before consuming 50 rounds when firing the main beam.
    • Prematurely deactivating Incarnon Form will consume the entire gauge.
Pandero

  • Fires all remaining ammunition in the magazine as a quick burst, forcing the player to reload afterwards.
    • Duration of the burst is affected by Magazine size and can be increased or decreased accordingly. In the event that the player gains infinite ammunition (such as the appropriate Reactant Buff), the burst will only last the Pandero's maximum magazine size.
    • Damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, and status chance from the burst is identical compared to the primary fire but it suffers from high recoil and reduced accuracy, and the player cannot zoom in while burst-firing.
    • If used by OctaviaIcon272 Octavia (OctaviaPrimeIcon64 Prime), headshot kills with the alternate fire increases reload speed by 20%.
Sepulcrum
Sepulcrum Sepulcrum
  • Toggles between burst-fire and lock-on modes.
    • Burst-fire shoots two rounds per shot that explode in a 1.6 meter radius.
    • Lock-on mode allows targeting up to 5 enemies before firing with the primary fire button, releasing seeking missiles with higher damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, and status chance, and an explosion radius of 3 meters.
      • Consumes 0 ammunition and requires locked-on targets before it can fire.
        • Rather than consuming ammunition, the Alternate Fire uses a charge gauge gained from killing enemies with the primary fire, and cannot toggle without a full gauge after 5 primary fire kills.

    • Damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, and status chance from the burst is identical compared to the primary fire, but it suffers from reduced accuracy, and the player cannot zoom in while burst-firing.
TenetPlinx
TenetPlinx Tenet Plinx
  • Charges an explosive projectile that pulls in enemies within a 6 meter radius on impacting a surface before exploding, with significantly higher damage that favors DmgRadiationSmall64 Radiation and DmgImpactSmall64 Impact instead of DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture and DmgFireSmall64 Heat and higher status chance, but slightly lower critical chance.
    • Consumes all rounds of ammunition and will not function if the player has less than the maximum rounds in the magazine.

Cortege
Cortege Cortege
  • Releases a trio of grenades that explode 4 meter radius on impacting a surface while leaving lingering flames that last for 10 seconds with significantly higher DmgBlastSmall64 Blast damage instead of DmgFireSmall64 Heat damage, critical chance, and critical multiplier, but with reduced status chance per projectile.
  • Consumes 0 ammunition.
