  • Hydraulic Crosshairs will trigger upon headshots, i.e. any weapon hit to an enemy's head, whether the target survives or not.
    • Headshots will refresh Hydraulic Crosshairs' 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.
  • Hydraulic Crosshairs' buff does not seem to multiply prior flat-crit% buffs such as Arcane Avenger.
