The Sicarus Prime is an ornamental firearm that fires rounds in rapid bursts, providing a balance between the lethality of auto-pistols and the accuracy of semi-automatic pistols.

The Sicarus Prime is an improved Sicarus.png Sicarus that sacrifices a small amount of its Impact b.svg Impact damage to triple Puncture b.svg Puncture and Slash b.svg Slash damage, and also sports higher accuracy, faster fire rate, and a larger magazine compared to its predecessor.

Sicarus Prime was available from December 6 2016 to January 3 2017 as part of the Fire and Ice Prime Vault.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png5,000.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Impact b.svg Impact damage.


  • High base damage.
    • Near-equal physical damage.
  • Very little recoil for a burst weapon.
  • High accuracy.
  • Fast fire rate.
  • One Madurai Pol.svg polarity slot.


  • Punishes missed shots due to burst-fire.
    • Third shot may miss targets without proper leading.
  • Linearly less efficient - sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.

    • Lower base damage (25.0 vs. 29.0)
      • Lower Impact b.svg Impact damage (10.0 vs. 20.3)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to its high accuracy, when combined with the Mod TT 20px.pngSteady Hands mod this weapon becomes powerful at long range.
  • The lower Impact b.svg Impact damage of Sicarus Prime makes individual shots mildly less effective against shields, but the improved fire rate and magazine size still make it a superior choice to the classic Sicarus.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • As of Update 15.16, the Sicarus Prime now has 21 rounds per magazine by default, instead of the old 20 rounds per magazine which would result in the last burst firing only 2 shots.
  • As of Update, the Sicarus Prime now has 24 rounds per magazine by default, and has received a boost to most stats.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Added to the game in Update 11.
  • It could be seen in Ember PrimeIcon272.png Ember Prime's right hand during the artwork show of Livestream 18.
  • The reload animation involves the front half of the barrel sliding forward, and the two side brackets opening outwards. A glowing capsule is then ejected and a new one is placed into the barrel before it is closed again.
    • The capsule's energy color is affected by energy color.
  • Compared to the normal Sicarus, the Sicarus Prime has a high pitch "whirring" sound at the end of its burst, suggesting the rounds to be energy based.
