Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Similar to Ramparts and all Arch-guns, ammo starts to automatically regenerate after 1 seconds of not firing the weapon. This regeneration delay is affected by reload speed mods like Quickdraw and Stunning Speed. The regeneration rate is 40 ammo per second.
  • The Cycron's beam has a maximum range of 24 meters.
    • This makes the Cycron an excellent weapon for multiple elemental builds as its innate Radiation status and a high status chance for other elemental procs allow it to take down enemies quickly with procs alone.
  • Even if equipped with Eject Magazine, the Cycron will not bypass its 1-second regeneration delay when holstered. Instead, the mod will simply accelerate the rate at which ammo is regenerated when holstered, once the delay is over.
  • Because the 40 shots count as part of a single magazine rather than an ammo pool, mods like Trick Mag have no effect.


  • With the new dual wielding feature from Update 21, the Cycron pairs quite well with a Condition Overload DEGlaive Glaive weapon, as you can trigger more status effects with 2 weapons in hand and with the convenience of reloading while attacking with your melee.


  • The Cycron is the first weapon to use the ammo regeneration mechanic outside of Archwing.
