The Sicarus is a burst-fire pistol that shoots tight 3-round bursts.
This weapon can be bought from the Market for 20,000. It can also be sold for 5,000.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
This weapon deals primarily Impact damage.
- Low base damage.
- Small magazine; being a 3-round burst weapon carrying 15 bullets it only has 5 bursts per magazine.
- Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.
- Sicarus, compared to Sicarus Prime:
- Higher base damage (29.0 vs. 25.0)
- Lower fire rate (7.39 rounds/sec vs. 9.38 rounds/sec)
- Smaller magazine (15 rounds vs. 21 rounds)
- Smaller max ammo capacity (45 rounds vs. 63 rounds)
- Less accurate (20 vs. 25)
- Lower Mastery Rank required (3 vs. 14)
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Precise timing is required to fire at its labeled fire rate, practice lining up shots and timing the next shot to find out the ideal speed at which to press the fire button. A faster fire rate will require slightly faster timing.
- Like the Kraken, there is a slight delay after firing where reloading will not function, and requires a double click or a pause then click for it to actually reload. This can be frustrating.
- As this is a burst fire weapon, move the mouse down after firing shots.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Prior to Update 9.0, Shield Lancers used the Sicarus instead of the Viper.
- The Sicarus' name is probably derived from sicarius, the Latin word for "assassin" or "dagger-wielder".
