This Tenno crafted, lever action rifle, is equal parts elegance and executioner.

The Sybaris is a burst-fire LotusBlack.pngTenno lever-action rifle that fires two bullets in quick succession, and serves as the Tenno equivalent to the DEGrinlok.png Grinlok. It can be researched in the Tenno lab in the Clan Dojo. It was released in Update 13.3.

Weapon Loadouts[edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like the Tiberon.png Tiberon, the Sybaris has a very tight shot spread courtesy of its almost nonexistent recoil, capable of landing both shots on a small target. This makes it suitable for long-range shooting unlike most other burst-fire weapons that tend to scatter their shots, and also makes it ideal for landing headshots.
  • Maximizing the fire rate of this weapon may require practice, as a short animation is required after each burst is fired.
  • With practice, the Sybaris can be used to headshot two separate targets near each other with the same burst. This ability is aided by slowing the fire rate with mods such as Mod TT 20px.pngCritical Delay.
  • Sybaris is also capable of blasting the protective head covering off of a Corpus humanoid with the first round of the burst, and scoring a head shot with the second.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • In order to reach the full fire-rate, one must fire the next burst just before the "lever-action" animation is completed.
  • With a semi-auto burst trigger, the Sybaris benefits greatly from having an alternative mode of fire bound to the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel sends inputs to the game much more frequently than the left mouse button would, and the Sybaris is more likely to respond with a scroll than a click in between bursts. Proper use of the scroll wheel can provide additional comfort for the player, yet due to oversampling, it is marginally less effective than a timed click. Some players may also experience slight loss of accuracy due to altered grip on the mouse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While the Sybaris is often compared to a Winchester rifle, it has more in common with a Porter Turret Rifle, a lever action rifle that also used a sideways disk-like magazine. Likely, the Sybaris works by firing the two bullets in the disk that line up in quick succession.
  • Sybaris was an ancient Greek colony in southern Italy that was notable for its luxury.
    • It is also the name for a Drakaina (female dragon) from Greek mythology, which terrorized the countryside of Delphi, devouring livestock and people.
  • Sybaris is the second weapon that fires two shots per burst (following the Kraken.png Kraken), and the first rifle to do so.
  • The large disc with the glowing circular light by the Sybaris' grip is the weapon's magazine.
  • The Sybaris was the first weapon to be given the new Physical Based Rendering (PBR) graphics technique in Update 14.9, which gave the weapon a gleaming, metallic texture while still allowing for color customization. This graphics rendering technique would later be applied to select weapons and items in the game.
