A highly-optimized Nukor that allows for the weapon’s microwave field to hit up to four additional targets.

The Kuva Nukor is the Kuva variant of the GrineerMicrowaveGun Nukor, with improvements to its already high critical multiplier and status chance, and increased critical chance, magazine, and range, but with marginally lower damage. Its beam has also gained the ability to chain between multiple enemies.

AcquisitionEdit

The Kuva Nukor is obtained by vanquishing a Kuva Lich who generated with one equipped. After the Lich is vanquished it will be in the player's Foundry ready to claim.

While the weapon itself is not tradeable, a converted Kuva Lich generated with the weapon can be traded to another player. The trade is performed inside a Clan Dojo's Crimson Branch room, and the recipient must not have any active Lich. Once traded, the recipient must fight and vanquish the Lich to claim its weapon.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Radiation b Radiation damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Radiation b Radiation damage – less effective against Shielded, Infested, and Fossilized.
  • Damage ramps up from 30% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 30% over 2 seconds.
  • Very low critical chance.
  • Limited range of 29 meters.
  • Pulsing weapon effect blocks the reticle, making it harder to make consistent headshots with the weapon shooting at moving targets.

NotesEdit

  • When fired at an enemy, the beam will chain to the closest living enemy within 10 meters of the initial target. From there it will chain again, up to a maximum of 4 chains in total. A chain will do 0.4n(n+1)/2 times the main beam's damage, where n is the chain number. Any enemy caught in the width of the beam will also be damaged. It has a small radius of damage around the beam, similar to the GrineerFlameThrower Ignis and InfestedPistol Embolist.
    • Headshotting the original target does not affect the chain damage.
    • The beam will not chain to a Nullifier through its shield should it connect with a target outside or partially enclosed by it.
    • The beam can also continue to chain to enemies even if targeting a dead enemy or an enemy who is dead but in a dying animation.
  • The beam can damage Rampart from the front.
  • The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Kuva Lich it was acquired from (e.g. Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Nukor).
  • The weapon's max rank caps at 40 after 5 polarizations (max rank increases by 2 per Forma added).
    • Additional polarizations can be added when the weapon reaches its new max rank at that polarization level.
    • Each additional rank also gives Mastery Rank Experience, giving 4,000 points in total.
    • Mod capacity scales with the additional ranks, and can reach a total of 80 at rank 40 with an Orokin Catalyst installed.
      • Without an Orokin Catalyst, the max is 40. Combined with the five polarized mod slots required to reach that point, an Orokin Catalyst might not be required to finish modding the Kuva Nukor.
      • After polarizing a weapon, any additional mod capacity above 30 (60 with an Orokin Catalyst) will not take effect until the weapon's rank reaches 31 and above.
  • Comes with an additional bonus damage stat, dependent on the Warframe that summoned the Lich.
