  • Duration is dependent on the fusion energy in addition to rank.
    • For example, having this mod at rank 1, with the fusion energy bar between ranks 1 and 2 will get a duration between 3 sec and 4.5 sec.
  • Headshots will refresh Hydraulic Crosshair's timer.
  • If activated, Hydraulic Crosshairs will display an icon timer beside the player's health UI, and the Warframe will be briefly surrounded by an energy ribbon.


  • This mod is best used on full-auto pistols with high critical stats, such as the Aksomati, as their high rate of fire ensures that they have a better chance of landing headshots against enemies, allowing them to both start and refresh Hydraulic Crosshair's bonus more easily.
