Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Cernos" means "horn" in Gaulish.
  • Being an Impact oriented bow, the Cernos uses arrows with a mace-like head, with a larger impact area. This spreads the kinetic energy of the arrows across a wider area, creating a blunt impact.
  • As of Update 30.3 (2021-05-25), the Cernos has the most variations of all weapons, having a total of 5 weapons in its family: basic, Prime, Rakta, Mutalist and Proboscis.
