Forged by a master gunsmith, this Tenno burst rifle will strike down targets with swift precision.

The Tiberon is a Tenno-made three round burst-fire rifle. Compared to most burst-fire rifles, the Tiberon is much more accurate and primarily deals Puncture b.svg Puncture damage.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Puncture b.svg Puncture damage.



  • Low Impact b.svg Impact and Slash b.svg Slash damage – less effective against shields.
  • Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.
  • Relatively low magazine capacity.


  • Tiberon, compared to Tiberon Prime:
    • Higher base damage (32.0 vs. 27.0)
      • Lower Impact b.svg Impact damage (8.0 vs. 8.1)
      • Higher Puncture b.svg Puncture damage (16.0 vs. 10.8)
      • Lower Slash b.svg Slash damage (8.0 vs. 8.1)
    • Higher fire rate (9.09 rounds/sec vs. 7.38 rounds/sec)
    • Smaller magazine (21 rounds vs. 30 rounds)
    • Larger max ammo capacity (84 rounds vs. 60 rounds)
    • Slower reload speed (2.3 s vs. 2 s)
    • Different polarities (Madurai Pol.svg vs. Madurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg)
    • Lower Mastery Rank required (10 vs. 14)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like the Sybaris, the Tiberon's burst has a very tight shot grouping, which combined with its high base accuracy and negligible recoil makes it better at long-range shooting than other burst-fire weapons, such as the Burston.png Burston or Hind.png Hind.
  • Has a higher damage per bullet than other low-tier burst fire weapons, like Burston or Hind.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon's name may be derived from tiburón, the Spanish word for shark. Its design also appears to take cues from the animal, particularly the "blades" beneath the muzzle which resemble a shark's pectoral fins.
  • The Tiberon is the first weapon outside of Clan Research that requires a Forma to construct.
  • At the time of its release, the DELatronPrime.png Latron Prime or the WraithLatron.png Latron Wraith could also be used to build the Tiberon. This was fixed in Hotfix 14.9.1.
  • Intriguingly, crafting the Tiberon requires the Latron, a semi-automatic rifle, instead of another burst-fire rifle, such as the Burston. The discrepancy can also be explained by the fact that Tiberon sports 3 separate barrels, with presumably one shot being fired from each, thus each barrel technically is its own semi-automatic weapon.
  • The Tiberon is reloaded by removing the magazine which is located at the butt end of the stock.
