  • The Rubico Prime requires only a single shot to activate its Shot Combo Counter, giving it an immediate 1.5x total damage multiplier after the first shot, and a 2.0x total damage multiplier after its third shot, giving it the ability to quickly ramp up its damage with a single magazine. On the other hand, it has a shot counter that decays by 1 shot every 2.0 seconds, thus reloading at 2.0 seconds will always decay the shot combo counter by 1 if there are no reload mods present.
    • With Harkonar Scope12?cb=20190608095452 Harkonar Scope or Arcane Momentum, it's possible to maintain the Rubico's shot combo counter through reloads.
    • The combo multiplier starts at 1.5x on the first shot and requires triple the amount of shots to reach each consecutive tier.
