Flick away the enemy with this heavy warfan. The Quassus scatters ethereal daggers that are even more deadly accurate when wielded by Xaku.

The Quassus is Xaku's signature warfan, possessing high damage and critical chance along with throwing ethereal daggers from Heavy Attacks that proc DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, with these daggers being more accurate in Xaku's hands.

    • The first heavy attack throws 12 daggers, each with a 2.5x damage multiplier; the second heavy attack in sequence throws 6 daggers, each with a 5x damage multiplier,
    • Damage of the daggers are affected by mods.

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

*Combos that are shared across all stances of the weapon type.
Average Damage Multiplier per second only applies to single target DPS calculations. Note that hits marked as "Slam Attacks" will not apply at the epicenter of a single target hit so these will not be accounted for in avg dmg multi/s calculations.
Combo animation lengths are approximate and are only accurate within a few tenths of a second.

Notes[]

  • The amount of knives thrown by the heavy attack is affected by Octavia's Metronome's Opera multishot buff.
  • As it is a melee attack, all four of Mirage's Hall of Mirrors throw their own full set of knives with each heavy attack.

Trivia[]

  • Quassus means "Shaking" in latin.
  • The Quassus was designed by Kedemel.

Patch History[]

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

  • Fixed the Quassus and Gunsen gaining different Melee combo counters on first hit with the Slicing Feathers Stance. They will both have the same 3 combo counter hits now.

Hotfix 29.2.1 (2020-10-01)

  • Fixed the Quassus leaving you "unarmed" after using heavy attacks.

Hotfix 29.1.1 (2020-09-18)

  • Fixed issue that stopped Pressure Point and its derivatives from not applying to Quassus Heavy Attack projectiles.

Hotfix 29.0.8 (2020-09-10)

  • Increased Heavy Attack projectiles from 35 to 76
    • Also fixed Quassus Heavy Attack projectiles being slowed down to 15% of their original speed after punching through an enemy.
  • Reduced horizontal spread of projectiles
    • Quassus throws 12 projectiles with a pretty wide horizontal spread, spreading the Damage across multiple targets. Individual damage was not where we wanted it. Increasing it over 100%, narrowing the spread and making sure it will hit additional targets after passing through, increases its lethality to intended levels.

Hotfix 29.0.2 (2020-08-26)

  • Fixed a crash when inspecting the Quassus’ stats in the Mission Progress screen while in the Cambion Drift.

Update 29.0 (2020-08-25)

  • Introduced.

Last updated: Hotfix 29.0.2 (2020-08-26)
