Vaultings[edit | edit source]
- On June 30th, 2020, it was announced that Rubico Prime, alongside Chroma Prime and 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[edit | edit source]
- 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.
