The Zenith is an assault rifle available through the Daily Tribute system, as a reward for logging in for 500 cumulative days. The primary fire shoots fully automatic shots with high fire rate, and features an Alternate Fire that deploys a disc that highlights nearby enemy heads through walls and obstacles while altering the weapon to a semi-automatic fire with very high damage and infinite punch through.
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
- The Zenith is exclusive to the Daily Tribute system. It will become available every 200 days, beginning at day 100, until chosen as the Milestone reward. The weapon comes with its own weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Semi-auto mode consumes 3 ammo per shot, which does the same amount of damage as shooting 3 bullets in Auto mode, but the damage composition is different.
- While the semi-auto mode has mostly infinite punch through, some level architecture, such as walls between tiles, are impenetrable.
- The Zenith's firing noise increases in pitch as the magazine depletes, beginning at 25% remaining ammunition.
- The secondary fire of the Zenith is capable of passing through the outside of Frost's Snow Globe.
- Head-markers are only visible to Zenith user and not teammates.
Tips[edit | edit source]
