The Kuva Quartakk is the Kuva variant of the quadruple burst rifle, acting as a direct upgrade. Functionally similar to the , the Kuva Quartakk also features an automatic firing mode from hip-fire, while retaining its signature burst-fire mode while aiming down sights.
- Near-equal physical damage distribution; effective against all factions.
- Hip-fire shoots fully-automatic rounds.
- Aimed fire shoots four rounds simultaneously in a burst.
- Highest burst damage of all burst-fire rifles.
- Uniquely fires all four shots simultaneously instead of consecutively, reducing the chance of one missing.
- Very high critical chance and critical multiplier.
- Tied with for the second highest status chance of all burst-fire rifles, behind / .
- Extremely high accuracy.
- Innate 0.5 meter punch through.

- Low fire rate.
- Hip-fire full-auto mode:
- Below average critical multiplier.
- 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.

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.
- Firing from hip-fire and then zooming in will not disrupt the full-auto fire until the trigger is released.
- Burst firing mode can be fired in rapid succession when zooming out and in again after every shot.
- Due to the nature of this weapon, it can be useful in various situations as a jack-of-all-trades weapon. Firing from the hip can be used for dealing with groups of weaker enemies, while burst firing can be utilized to deal with stronger enemies. In addition, it can be very useful against enemies with defensive bubbles, such as Nullifier Crewmen -- fire from the hip to take down the shield, then immediately burst fire to quickly finish them off before it regenerates.
- As with all Kuva and Tenet weapons, the player does not have to meet the Mastery Rank displayed to obtain this weapon. It can simply be claimed from the foundry after the Kuva Lich or Sister carrying it has been vanquished.
- The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Lich/Sister it was acquired from (e.g. Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Kohm).
- 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 100 Mastery Rank experience, giving 4,000 points in total at level 40.
- 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 weapon.
- 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.
- Legendary Mastery Rank increases the minimum mod capacity for such weapons, without the weapon needing to be rank 31 and above. For example, Legendary 1 increases the minimum capacity to 31 (62 with an Orokin Catalyst).
- Comes with an additional damage stat, dependent on the Warframe that summoned the Lich/Sister.
- This damage stat ranges between 25%-60%, and is randomly generated by the Lich/Sister. It can be brought up to its maximum value with Valence Fusion using another copy of the weapon.
- This bonus stat is considered a base damage type that is added after all elemental mods.
- If the weapon innately has a primary element type ( , , , ) AND has a different primary element as its bonus stat, the elements on the weapon will combine in a unique way: Whichever of the two primary elements comes first in this element order - > > > , or "HCET" for short - will be placed second to last in the element combine order, while the other primary element will be placed last in the combine order. This order can be subsequently shifted based on the order of the equipped mods.
- For example, if the weapon innately has , using an progenitor Warframe to add base damage to the weapon will change the weapon's base element to .
- Because comes before in the HCET element order, will be placed second to last in the element combine order, and will be placed last.
- If the weapon is then modded with only , the elements will be arranged in the order , , , resulting in the weapon having + . If the weapon is instead modded with only , the elements will be arranged in the order , , , which will create + .
- If modded with and , the will be moved earlier in the combine order due to now being a modded element, so the new combine order will be , , , resulting in + . If modded with and , the combine order will be , , , , resulting in + .
