An ancient weapon designed by the Entrati for use by their Necramechs. Primary fire siphons life essence from the target to fuel a devastating alt fire. A heavy flamethrower with surprising range. Alt fire launches three projectiles in a fan pattern that explode, leaving a damaging area of effect for a short duration.

The Cortege is an IconOrokinB.svgOrokin Era weapon created by the Entrati, a beam Arch-gun that builds charges on kills to allow use of the Alternate Fire, a trio of grenades that leaves lingering flames.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Heat b.png Heat damage on its primary fire and Blast b.png Blast damage on its Alternate Fire.

Advantages:

  • Alternate Fire releases a trio of grenades that explodes in an 4 meter radius on impacting a surface or when remotely detonated with Alternate Fire, leaving lingering flames that deal continuous damage for 10 seconds.
  • High magazine size.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg polarity.

    • Innate Heat b.png Heat damage – less effective against Proto Shields.
    • Below average critical multiplier.

    • Limited range of:
      • 380 meters in Archwing Mode.
      • 28 meters in Atmospheric Mode.

    • Extremely low fire rate, causing a long pause after firing.
    • Projectiles have travel time with heavy arcing.
    • Explosion inflicts self-stagger.
    • Explosion has linear damage falloff from 100% to 70% from central impact.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cortège is a French term referring to processions. Its antiquated use as a loaned word in the English language though equated it with funeral processions exclusively.
  • During the Heart of Deimos quest, the enemy Necramech wields a Cortege during cutscenes, and at one point fires Mausolon.png Mausolon-like full-auto rounds. However, when fought it is armed with a Mausolon instead.
