Art meets ingenuity with this beautifully deadly rifle.

The Tiberon Prime is the select-fire Prime version of the three round burst-fire rifle, Tiberon.png Tiberon, featuring overall higher stats. Unique to the weapon is its three firing modes that can be swapped through its Alternate Fire: balanced statistics on its three round burst-fire mode, higher damage but lower rate of fire on semi-auto mode, and higher rate of fire but lower damage on full-auto mode.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Puncture b.svg Puncture damage by a small margin.

Advantages:

  • Near-equal physical damage.
  • Three firing modes: 3-round burst, semi-auto, and full-auto.
    • Burst-fire and semi-auto have high damage.
      • Full-auto mode has good rate of fire.
  • High accuracy.
  • Very low recoil, especially on Burst-fire and Semi-auto modes.
  • Semi-auto mode has the highest fire rate of all semi-automatic rifles.
  • Has a Madurai Pol.svg and two Naramon Pol.svg polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Burst-fire mode is linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired, or a change to Fire Mode.
    • This can also be mitigated by using quick melee with good timing, canceling the burst partway through.
  • Semi-auto mode has the lowest damage of all semi-automatic rifles without the use of critical hits.
