The Sicarus Prime is an ornamental firearm that fires rounds in rapid bursts, providing a balance between the lethality of auto-pistols and the accuracy of semi-automatic pistols.

The Sicarus Prime is an improved Sicarus that sacrifices a small amount of its Impact b Impact damage to triple Puncture b Puncture and Slash b Slash damage, and also sports higher accuracy, faster fire rate, and a larger magazine compared to its predecessor.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact damage.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Punishes missed shots due to burst-fire.
    • Third shot may miss targets without proper leading.
  • Linearly less efficient - sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.

    • Higher base damage (50.0 vs. 30.0)
      • Lower Impact b Impact damage (20.0 vs. 21.0)

    • Higher Mastery Rank required (14 vs. 3)

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Due to its high accuracy, when combined with the Steady Hands mod this weapon becomes powerful at long range.
  • The lower Impact b Impact damage of Sicarus Prime makes individual shots mildly less effective against shields, but the improved fire rate and magazine size still make it a superior choice to the classic Sicarus.
  • As of Update 15.16, the Sicarus Prime had 21 rounds per magazine, instead of the original 20 rounds per magazine which would result in the last burst firing only 2 shots.
  • As of Update 19.4.2, the Sicarus Prime has 24 rounds per magazine, and has received a boost to most stats.

TriviaEdit

  • Added to the game in Update 11.0.
  • It could be seen in Ember Prime's right hand during the artwork show of Livestream 18.
  • The reload animation involves the front half of the barrel sliding forward, and the two side brackets opening outwards. A glowing capsule is then ejected and a new one is placed into the barrel before it is closed again.
    • The capsule's energy color is affected by energy color.
  • Compared to the normal Sicarus, the Sicarus Prime has a high pitch "whirring" sound at the end of its burst, suggesting the rounds to be energy based.
