Echo nature's violent beauty with this special Tigris.

The Sancti Tigris is a DETigris.png Tigris variant available only from New Loka. Featuring increased damage and reload speed at the cost of accuracy.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • The Sancti Tigris can be acquired by reaching the Rank of Flawless with New Loka, and spending ReputationLargeBlack.png125,000 to purchase. As with all Syndicate Weapons, the Sancti Tigris cannot be chosen as the free offering upon ranking up to Flawless rank.
  • Syndicate weapons can also be acquired via Trading, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • Players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 12 to acquire the Sancti Tigris, either through trading or through the Syndicates themselves.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Slash b.svg Slash damage.

Advantages:

  • Second highest damage of all non-Archwing weapons, behind PrimeTigris342.png Tigris Prime.
  • Unique trigger type allows for two rapid shots against tough targets, or careful shot management against many weaker opponents. First shot on button press, the second on button release.
  • High reload speed.
  • Efficient ammunition economy.
  • Innate Vazarin Pol.svg, Madurai Pol.svg, and Naramon Pol.svg polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Impact b.svg Impact and Puncture b.svg Puncture damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 42.86% from 8m to 20m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Extremely low magazine size of just two rounds; requires frequent reloading.
  • Low pellet count.

Weapon Loadouts[edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 2.5 Impact b.svg Impact, 2.33 Puncture b.svg Puncture and 20 Slash b.svg Slash.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While the Sancti Tigris is less effective against targets vulnerable to Puncture b.svg Puncture and Impact b.svg Impact damage types, it still deals an obscene amount of damage against targets with these resistances, dealing more damage than some weapon's primary damage types.
  • The decrease in fire rate increases the delay before the Tigris automatically reloads after emptying it's magazine. This can be remedied by pressing the Reload button right after firing the second shot

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The first part of its name, Sancti, is likely derived from the Latin word "sanctus", meaning holy. The Sanctus is also the name of a hymn in Catholic liturgy, or 'Hymn of Victory' in the Greek rendition.
