A weapon that reaches for its next victim even as it kills. With each takedown, this pistol spawns an energy tendril that reaches for a nearby target.

The Ocucor is a IconCorpusB.svgCorpus beam pistol incorporating SentientFactionIcon b.pngSentient technology, releasing energy tendrils on kills that assault the closest target.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily DmgRadiationSmall64.pngRadiation damage.


  • Innate DmgRadiationSmall64.pngRadiation damage – effective against Alloy Armor, Robotic, and Infested Sinew.
  • Very high status chance.
  • Good critical chance.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
    • Mod TT 20px.pngMagnum Force's accuracy penalty is minimal on this weapon.
  • Fast reload speed.
  • Kills with this weapon releases an energy tendril that can home-in on enemies close to the targeting reticle, up to a maximum of 4 tendrils.
    • Tendrils lock on to enemies within 40 degrees of the reticule. Tendrils will stay locked on until enemies are 60 or more degrees away from the reticule.


  • Innate DmgRadiationSmall64.pngRadiation damage – less effective against Shielded, Infested, and Fossilized.
  • Damage ramps up from 20% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 20% over 2 seconds.
  • Below average critical multiplier.
  • Very inefficient ammo economy.
  • Limited range of 20 meters for both the main beam and the tendrils.
  • Tendrils disappear upon reloading.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Kills must be from the main beam in order to generate tendrils; kills from the tendrils themselves will not count.
  • Tendrils base damage is half of the main beam, and they can score critical hits and status effects independent of it.
  • Tendrils homing in on the main beam's target are only cosmetic, and don't deal any additional damage or status effects.
  • Tendril range is affected by Mod TT 20px.pngRuinous Extension.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • As the tendrils only disappear upon reloading, the Synth Mod Set or Mod TT 20px.pngEject Magazine can be used to replenish the Ocucor's magazine simply by holstering, keeping the tendrils active for longer periods.
  • The tendrils deal 50% bonus damage; when all 4 tendrils are active and there are enough targets around, the weapon's output damage is effectively 3 times what it normally is. This makes the Ocucor ideal for dealing with large crowds of enemies, such as Infested. It also means that the tendrils constitute a large portion of the damage output when not focusing a single target; thusly, mods like Mod TT 20px.pngSynth Reflex or similar are excellent at maintaining it's high damage output.
    • Keep in mind that if the reload process even begins, or if the magazine reaches zero, the tendrils will still reset. Even if the reload is canceled or the weapon is holstered after the magazine has been emptied, but before reloading, the tendrils will still reset.
  • Tendrils often hit enemies in the head and can activate ArcanePistoleer64x.pngArcane Pistoleer, massively increasing the Ocucor's ammo efficiency and time between reloads.
  • DmgViralSmall64.pngViral is ideal on this weapon; it can apply its health damage increase effect to up to 5 enemies at once, and DPS them down simultaneously. Combine this with DmgElectricitySmall64.pngElectricity for crowd control and AoE splash damage, or DmgFireSmall64.pngHeat for extra DPS. Combining both also allows this weapon to create chaos by spreading DmgRadiationSmall64.pngRadiation procs around.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Sentient component of this weapon appears to be a modified Shwaak Prism, particularly with the "arm" that connects the Prism to a given Amp removed. The energy tendrils themselves however are more similar to the Klebrik Scaffold.
  • Though Ocucor is a secondary firearm, there is a ring that looks similar to Jai Link attached to it. This aesthetic is shared with Battacor.pngBattacor.
  • The Ocucor's name, like the Battacor, seems to be a portmanteau, incorporating Oculyst (a Sentient enemy) and the suffix -cor, seen in some other Corpus weapons.
