Unlike a standard Quartakk this Kuva Lich variant fires automatically from the hip while retaining its signature feature when aimed: annihilating targets with four simultaneous shots.

The Kuva Quartakk is the Kuva Lich variant of the GrnFourBarrelRifleWeapon Quartakk quadruple burst rifle, acting as a direct upgrade. Functionally similar to the Quatz Quatz, the Kuva Quartakk also features an automatic firing mode from hip-fire, while retaining its signature burst-fire mode while aiming down sights.

AcquisitionEdit

The Kuva Quartakk 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 primarily Impact b Impact damage by a small margin.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Low fire rate.
  • Hip-fire full-auto mode:
  • Aimed fire burst mode:
    • Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with five bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.
    • Each shot lands in a small square formation around where the user is aiming instead of directly on the crosshair, which may lead to misses against smaller targets.

Comparisons:

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Firing from hip-fire and then zooming in will not disrupt the full-auto fire until the trigger is released.
  • The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Kuva Lich it was acquired from (e.g. Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Quartakk).
  • 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 Quartakk.
      • 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.
