Rubico Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables at this time and are no longer farmable. Vaulted Void Relics in player inventories are not affected and can still be opened.

For the hunter, the apex of the sniper's art. For the hunted, a gateway to the next life.

Rubico Prime is a Primed variant of the revolver-style FiveShotSniper.png Rubico Sniper Rifle, boasting higher damage, critical chance, status chance, fire rate, and reload speed, but with a reduction in zoom. It was released alongside Chroma PrimeIcon272.png Chroma Prime and GramPrime.png Gram Prime.

Characteristics[]

This weapon deals primarily DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.

Advantages:

  • High DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage – effective against shields.
  • Highest base critical chance of all sniper rifles.
  • Tied with normal FiveShotSniper.png Rubico and Sporothrix.png Sporothrix for the highest base critical multiplier of all sniper rifles.
  • Second fastest fire rate of all sniper rifles, behind Komorex.png Komorex.
  • Good ammo economy.
  • Pinpoint accuracy while zoomed in; shots will hit exactly on the reticle dot, ideal for headshots.
  • Very low recoil.
  • Innate 1 meter punch through.
  • Two zoom modes:
    • First zoom has 2.5x zoom distance and +35% critical damage multiplier.
    • Second zoom has 5.0x zoom distance and +50% critical damage multiplier.
  • Lowered zoom increases ease of use in close range encounters.
  • Tied with normal Rubico for the smallest shot combo requirement of all sniper rifles.
  • Can use the Rubico-exclusive Mod TT 20px.png Ambush Optics mod.
  • Innate two Madurai Pol.svg polarities.

Disadvantages:

  • Low DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage – less effective against armor and health.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 400m to 600m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Tied with DESnipertronVandal.png Snipetron Vandal for the second lowest status chance of all sniper rifles, after FiveShotSniper.png Rubico and CorpusSniperRifle.png Snipetron.
  • Relatively small magazine size.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.
  • Inaccurate beyond short range when fired from the hip.

Vaultings[]

  • On June 30th, 2020, it was announced that Rubico Prime, alongside Chroma PrimeIcon272.png Chroma Prime and GramPrime.png Gram Prime, would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on July 14th, 2020. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.

Notes[]

  • 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 Mod TT 20px.png 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.
