Rain down a triple volley of explosive disease bladders from a distance, then move in for the kill by unloading a multi-shot barrage of toxic barbs with primary fire.

The Bubonico is an Infestation b.svgInfested Shotgun Arm-Cannon that launches a barrage of DmgToxinSmall64.pngToxin blasts from its primary fire, while its Alternate Fire shoots three explosive DmgViralSmall64.pngViral shots in a burst.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash damage on its primary fire and DmgViralSmall64.pngViral on its Alternate Fire.


  • Primary fire shoots multishot barrages in a fully automatic fashion.
  • Alternate Fire burst-fires three rounds that creates a 7 meter area of effect explosion on impact with a surface or enemy.
  • Does not use ammo pickups; ammo regenerates over time.
    • Has a 0.5-second delay before ammo begins to regenerate.
      • Regenerates 16.875 ammo per second; takes 1.6 seconds to regenerate a fully depleted battery excluding the delay.
  • Able to perform actions limited to secondary weapons, such as carrying objects or firing during bleedout.
  • Innate Bar polarity.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Bubonico uses shotgun mods.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • There are several ways to make use of the Alternate Fire's high critical damage by adding flat critical chance bonuses:
    • An Adarza Kavat with Mod TT 20px.pngCat's Eye can give your weapons an additive 60% boost to critical chance.
    • Likewise, Smeeta Kavat's Mod TT 20px.pngCharm can guarantee orange crits as one of its possible effects.
    • With another player using the InfCrpShockSwarm.pngMutalist Quanta's Alternate Fire, shooting through the orb adds a flat +25% critical chance, in addition to +25% critical damage and extra DmgElectricitySmall64.pngElectricity.
    • HarrowIcon272.pngHarrow's Covenant130xDark.pngCovenant can add up to +50% additive crit chance, or +200% on headshots, after absorbing enough damage.
    • A fully ranked ArcaneAvenger64x.pngArcane Avenger has a 21% chance upon receiving damage to grant +45% flat critical chance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bubonico is a play on Bubonic plague, a type of infectious disease also known as the Black Death.
  • Bubonico is the second arm cannon added in WARFRAME.
