The Sicarus fires 3-round bursts, which provides a balance between the lethality of auto-pistols and the accuracy of semi-automatic pistols.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Impact b.svg Impact damage.

Advantages:

  • High Impact b.svg Impact damage – effective against shields.
  • Good accuracy.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg polarity.

Disadvantages:

  • 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)
      • Higher Impact b.svg Impact damage (20.3 vs. 10.0)

      • Lower Slash b.svg Slash damage (4.3 vs. 7.5)
    • 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.png 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.
