Echo nature's violent beauty with this special Tigris.

The Sancti Tigris is a DETigris.png Tigris variant available only from New Loka. Featuring increased damage, reload speed, and critical chance at the cost of lowered critical damage and accuracy, the Sancti Tigris also comes with an innate Purity effect.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • The Sancti Tigris can be acquired by reaching the Rank of Flawless with New Loka, and spending ReputationLargeBlack.png125,000 to purchase. As with all Syndicate Weapons, the Sancti Tigris cannot be chosen as the free offering upon ranking up to Flawless rank.
  • Syndicate weapons can also be acquired via Trading, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed.
  • Players must have a Mastery Rank of at least 12 to acquire the Sancti Tigris, either through trading or through the Syndicates themselves.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Sancti Tigris has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, making it an ideal choice for a Desecrating NekrosIcon272.png Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.
  • While the Sancti Tigris is less effective against targets vulnerable to Puncture b.svg Puncture and Impact b.svg Impact damage types, it still deals an obscene amount of damage against targets with these resistances, dealing more damage than some weapon's primary damage types.
  • The innate Vazarin Pol.svg polarity is a perfect match for Mod TT 20px.pngTainted Shell; this mod has a high capacity requirement but is very efficient on the Tigris as the duplex trigger practically nullifies the fire rate drawback.
    • The decrease in fire rate increases the delay before the Tigris automatically reloads after emptying its magazine. This can be remedied by pressing the Reload button right after firing the second shot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The first part of its name, Sancti, is likely derived from the Latin word "sanctus", meaning holy. The Sanctus is also the name of a hymn in Catholic liturgy, or 'Hymn of Victory' in the Greek rendition.

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 27.2

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.

  • (Undocumented) Status chance per projectile increased from 4.6666666666667% to 14%.

Hotfix 22.18.4

  • Fixed a game freeze that could occur with Sancti Tigris's Syndicate effect.
