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 b.svgInfested Sniper Rifle that shoots explosive delayed Viral b.png Viral barbs, boasting a very high critical multiplier and status chance that is heavily offset by its nonexistent critical chance.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.pngCat's Eye can give your weapons an additive 60% boost to critical chance.
    • Likewise, Smeeta Kavat's Mod TT 20px.pngCharm can guarantee orange crits as one of its possible effects.
    • With another player using the InfCrpShockSwarm.png Mutalist Quanta's Alternate Fire, shooting through the orb adds a flat +25% critical chance, in addition to +25% critical damage and extra Electricity b.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.pngArcane Avenger has a 21% chance upon receiving damage to grant +45% flat critical chance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon shares it's name with the real-world fungus Sporothrix. The fungus can cause Sporotrichosis in humans, otherwise known as "Rose Gardener's Disease".
