Atomos is a Grineer particle cannon, firing a -based beam that can chain between multiple enemies.
This weapon can be sold for
2,500; it is also a requisite ingredient for .
This weapon deals
Innate damage – effective against Heat health and shields.
Can hit multiple enemies with a single beam.
Enemy corpses will still allow the beam to connect to nearby enemies.
Large magazine size.
Has a polarity.
Damage cannot be converted with , Impact or Puncture mods.
Slash Damage ramps up from 35% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 35% over 2 seconds.
Main beam has a limited range of 15 meters.
Chain beam has a limited range of 7 meters.
Poor ammo efficiency.
When fired at an enemy, the beam from the Atomos will link between multiple adjacent enemies within 3 meters of the initial target and each other, and any caught in the width of the beam will also be damaged. It has a small radius of damage around the beam, similar to the and Ignis .
The Atomos can chain between enemies a maximum of 3 times, for a total of 4 enemies hit simultaneously including the original target.
The beam can also continue to chain to enemies even if targeting a dead enemy or an enemy who is dead but in a dying animation.
The Atomos covers up part of the reticle when aiming. This combined with the beams behavior of slowly rotating around a central point means that occasionally the beam will fire behind the weapon with no way of knowing if you are aiming at the enemy or not.
Atomos is the Greek word for "undivided", and is the origin of the word Atom, referring to the smallest constituents of physical matter identifiable as a chemical element.
Anastomosis is a Greek word meaning the reconnecting of various streams, such as in blood vessels or river deltas.
As of the release of Atomos, it is now possible to have a loadout consisting of purely damage, combined with Heat , Ignis or Silva & Aegis , and Twin Basolk / Chroma (with the appropriate energy color) or Chroma Prime / Ember .
Ember Prime When reloading, two sections are removed and subsequently replaced individually, unlike other weapons. It can be speculated that one could be fuel and the other an igniting agent or propellant.
The Atomos's visual effects will not go through 's Volt , but it will interact with the shield normally.
