This long-distance sniper rifle fires a razor-sharp, virus-soaked barb that continues to attack its host before violently erupting in a spore-laden mist. Scoped headshots increase lethality.

Sporothrix is an Infestation w.svg Infested Sniper Rifle that shoots explosive delayed DmgViralSmall64.png Viral barbs, boasting a very high critical multiplier and status chance that is heavily offset by its near nonexistent critical chance.

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

Tips[]

  • Despite being a sniper rifle primarily intended against single targets, the exploding barbs make Sporothrix equally valuable as a crowd control weapon. Aiming at grouped enemies is a good way of maximizing the weapon's effectiveness.
  • There are several ways to make use of the Sporothrix's high critical damage by adding flat critical chance bonuses:
    • An Adarza Kavat with Mod TT 20px.png Cat's Eye can give your weapons an additive 60% boost to critical chance.
    • Likewise, Smeeta Kavat's Mod TT 20px.png Charm can guarantee orange crits as one of its possible effects.
    • With another player using the MutalistQuanta.png Mutalist Quanta's Alternate Fire, shooting through the orb adds a flat +25% critical chance, in addition to +25% critical damage and extra DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity.
    • HarrowIcon272.png Harrow's Covenant130xDark.png Covenant can add up to +50% additive crit chance, or +200% on headshots, after absorbing enough damage.
    • A fully ranked ArcaneAvenger64x.png Arcane Avenger has a 21% chance upon receiving damage to grant +45% flat critical chance.

Trivia[]

  • This weapon shares its name with the real-world fungus genus Sporothrix. One particular species can cause Sporotrichosis in humans and animals, otherwise known as "Rose Gardener's Disease".
