Obtain enlightenment with this massive hammer that performs a Codex scan on each fatal strike. Scans require equipped Codex Scanner and an available charge.

The Heliocor is a Cephalon-designed hammer obtainable from Cephalon Simaris. The immense power of the Heliocor not only lies in its high damage per swing, but its ability to aid the user in transferring slain enemies into their Codex. It does, however, suffer a little in the ways of status and has a reduced swing speed.

Notes[]

  • The Heliocor will not grant Standing for Cephalon Simaris even if players are carrying Synthesis Scanners in their Gear, though the weapon will still perform Codex scans as normal.
  • If the equipped Synthesis Scanner is enhanced with the Sol-Battery Widget, scans through melee kills will not use up scanner charges.
  • The Heliocor can obtain Kavat Genetic Codes if it kills Feral Kavats. This helps greatly with speeding up the genetic material needed to make a Kavat companion as long as the slow swing speed is managed accordingly.
  • The Heliocor cannot scan something that has already been scanned with a normal scanner.

Tips[]

  • It is recommended to take advantage of Fury or Berserker Fury to compensate for its low attack speed.

Trivia[]

  • It is the first melee weapon that can be obtained from any Syndicate.
  • Functionally, the Heliocor is the first Cephalon-designed weapon built primarily for combat in mind, as previous Cephalon weapons are essentially repurposed research devices. This is also the first weapon that fulfils a utility function outside of damage-dealing during gameplay.
  • Unlike the Gammacor.png Gammacor and the CephPrimary.png Simulor, the Heliocor does not deal DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage.
