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 IconOrokinOn.png Orokin Era weapon created by the EntratiIcon.png 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[]

  • This weapon deals primarily DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage on its primary fire and DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage on its Alternate Fire.
  • Primary fire releases a flamethrower-like beam.
    • Pinpoint accuracy.
    • Consumes 0.5 ammo per tick of damage.
    • Beam has a cone thickness of 1m to 4m meters, and the zone of impact or maximum beam range has a spherical blast radius of 3 meters, allowing it to hit multiple enemies at once.
      • The Atmospheric beam has innate infinite punch through against bodies.
    • No damage falloff in Archwing Mode.
  • Getting 5 kills with the Cortege's primary fire will unlock an Alternate Fire that 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 11 seconds.
    • Initial hit and explosion apply status separately.
    • Explosion does not need direct line of sight to deal damage and will penetrate walls.
    • Explosion inflicts self-stagger.
    • Explosion has linear damage falloff from 100% to 70% from central impact.
    • Consumes no ammo.
    • After using Alternate Fire, additional kills are needed to recharge the grenade barrage.
  • Innate Madurai Pol.svg polarity.

Acquisition[]

The Cortege main blueprint can be acquired by reaching Rank 3 - Clearance: Odima with the NecraloidIcon.png Necraloid. The main blueprint is offered as a rank up reward, but Loid sells additional main blueprints for ReputationBlackx64.png 8,000. Components are crafted from blueprints that can be acquired for ReputationBlackx64.png 4,000 each after reaching Rank 2 - Clearance: Modus with the syndicate. Once crafted, it comes with a pre-installed Gravimag.

Additionally requires Rank 2 - Visitor with OstronSigil.png Ostron in order to acquire FersteelAlloy.png Fersteel Alloy required in its construction.

The Damaged Necramech Weapon parts are acquired from Normal and Arcana Isolation Vault Bounty rewards.

The Damaged Necramech Weapon parts and fully built Cortege components can be traded between players. Trading for fully built components will bypass the need for Ostron's Fersteel Alloy.

Notes[]

  • Alternate-fire charges after killing 5 enemies.
    • Leaves a flaming puddle dealing 1000 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage per second for 11 seconds.
      • Puddle damage does not fall off with radius.
      • Puddle is not affected by faction mods.
      • Puddle is not affected by elemental mod bonuses.
      • Puddle has a fixed 68% chance [% Confirmation Needed] to proc DmgFireSmall64.png Heat. Procs have a shortened 3 second duration.
        • Proc duration is not affected by status duration mods, but is affected by LavosIcon272.png Lavos's duration passive.
  • Primary-fire cone thickness of 1m - 4m grows linearly with range and always has a 4m spherical radius at the end-point of the beam, therefore the maximum effective range can reach up to 32m while the beam itself ends at 28m.
    • The initial shot briefly has the 4m radius centered on the barrel, striking enemies behind the player.

Trivia[]

  • 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.

Patch History[]

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)

  • Changed the reticle of several weapons with a charge mechanic to no longer use energy colors for their charge indicators.
    • While it’s desirable to have the reticle of these weapons take on the energy color, it sacrifices too much clarity for the weapon charge indicator.
      • This applies to:
      • Cortege charge reticle

Update 29.6 (2020-12-18)

  • Cortege can be purchased in the Market for Platinum. Necramech’s also have their own category in the Market!
  • Fully crafted components for the Necramech/weapons are now tradeable.

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

  • Cortege Changes:
    • Increased range from 24m to 28m.
    • Added Punch Through to the Cortege’s primary fire against enemies (will not penetrate level geometry).

Hotfix 29.0.8 (2020-09-10)

  • Fixed Cortege prompting to install a Gravimag first as opposed to a Catalyst. This weapon comes with a Gravimag pre-installed, it will only ask you for a Catalyst if you wish to add one.

Hotfix 29.0.6 (2020-09-01)

  • Fixed Cortege doing incorrect Damage type in Heavy Weapon mode.

Hotfix 29.0.4 (2020-08-27)
