The Quartakk is a Grineer quad-barreled heavy burst rifle that fires 4 bullets simultaneously in a single burst. Its slow fire rate is compensated by possessing the second highest burst damage of all burst-fire rifles (behind its Kuva variant), high accuracy and status chance, and good critical chance.
The Quartakk's blueprint can be acquired as a reward from performing special Ghoul Purge Bounties, or dropped by Ghoul Auger Alphas. The built weapon can also be bought from the Market individually, or as part of the Maggor Assault Pack.

- The listed fire rate of the weapon is actually the weapon's burst rate, rather than the number of shots per second. The actual fire rate is roughly 1.58.
- Can reach over 100% status chance with:
- Thermite Rounds, Rime Rounds, High Voltage, Malignant Force, and Catalyzer Link.
- Rifle Aptitude and Hammer Shot combined with two of Thermite Rounds, Rime Rounds, High Voltage, Malignant Force, or Catalyzer Link.
- Rifle Aptitude or Hammer Shot combined with four of Thermite Rounds, Rime Rounds, High Voltage, Malignant Force, or Catalyzer Link.
- The name Quartakk may be derived from the Latin word Quartus, meaning "fourth".
- This ties in with the weapon's four-barreled nature.
- Prior to Update 22.9, the Quartakk functioned as a semi-automatic rifle that fired four bullets per shot. This caused the weapon's status chance to behave similarly to multi-pellet shotguns, in that the listed status chance was split between each bullet. After the update, the Quartakk was changed into a burst-fire rifle firing four bullets simultaneously, resulting in each bullet having the listed status chance instead of being split.

- Kuva Quartakk, the Kuva Lich counterpart of this weapon.
- Quatz, a Grineer four-barreled sidearm that can fire four round simultaneous bursts.
