A gift from the Lotus to commemorate the third anniversary of the first Tenno waking from Cryo stasis.

The Dex Sybaris is the Dex variant of TnoLeverActionRifle.png Sybaris burst-fire rifle, sporting higher critical chance, fire rate, magazine size, and faster reload, but with a slight reduction to damage. It was added in celebration of WARFRAME's 3rd anniversary.
