Notes [ ]
Unlike other gunblades, when there is no stance equipped, the Sarpa uses
's Samba Slash when attacking. Bullet Dance Shots have innate punch through when firing through enemies and non-terrain objects, e.g. Grineer
Blunts. Missed shots do
not influence the accuracy rating in the mission progress table. Shots that hit, however, do. Firing the gun does
not invalidate the "The Sword Alone" achievement. Charged shots do
not pass through 's Frost if players are standing outside the globe. Snow Globe Jumping cannot be done until the charge shot animation has ended.
Charged shots are affected by the following:
Some stance combos fire twice the number of bullets.
combos work as follows:
Vagabond Blitz – 3rd attack shoots 5 bullets
Final Showdown – 3rd attack shoots 10 bullets Desperado Zeal – 4th attack shoots 10 bullets, 5th shoots 5 This weapon has two different animations for charged attack:
Charged animation using
(this animation applies to charged attacks while using the melee weapon). High Noon Charged animation using (this animation applies to charged attacks while using the melee weapon). Bullet Dance
Tips [ ]
works extremely well with this weapon; Each bullet fired reduces the target's base armor by 6, stripping either 30 or 60 base armor depending on the attack performed. Shattering Impact
with a status chance build is excellent on it; should the first bullet inflict a status effect, the remaining burst will receive the damage boost. Condition Overload Each bullet counts as a separate hit on Nullifier bubbles making it fairly good at destroying them.
Trivia [ ]
(सर्प) is the Sanskrit term for snake or serpent. Sarpa
Bugs [ ]
Ingame, the Heavy Attack damage displayed is
600, the actual value before the 25% physical damage bonus is 700 however, a 4x multiplier from the 175 Shot damage. Without a stance equipped, the Sarpa is capable of doing Heavy Attacks while moving. These Heavy Attacks only have a 3x multiplier.
