This reengineered Cycron features a refracting energy disc that can split off its main target hitting up to two additional nearby targets.

The Tenet Cycron is the Tenet variant of the CycronCycron.png Cycron beam pistol, dealing pure Heat DamageDmgHeatSmall64.png Heat damage instead of Radiation DamageDmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation, along with improved critical chance, status chance, and total damage. Its beam has also gained the ability to chain between multiple enemies.

Acquisition[]

Tenet Cycron is obtained by vanquishing a Sister who generated with one equipped. After the Sister is vanquished it will be in the player's Foundry ready to claim.

While the weapon itself is not tradeable, a converted Sister generated with the weapon can be traded to another player. The trade is performed inside a Clan Dojo's Crimson Branch room, and the recipient must not have any active Lich or Sister. Once traded, the recipient must fight and vanquish the Sister to claim their weapon.

Notes[]

  • Upon striking an enemy, the beam chains up to 2 enemies within 7 meters of the main target. Each chain beam does 60% of the main beam's damage.
  • As the weapon requires charging up to recover its ammunition, players should be mindful of letting the weapon recharge by holding fire - keeping the trigger pressed down will prevent it from fully charging, resulting in an overall DPS drop due to the forced one-second delay in recharging being persistently active.
    • The absence of needing ammo pickups does give the Tenet Cycron a slight advantage over its Kuva counterpart, the Kuva NukorKuvaNukor.png Kuva Nukor, as the former can be always used while the latter can run out of ammo especially in prolonged fights.
  • Punch Through will cause the main beam to chain independently from each additional target hit, potentially doubling or tripling the total damage output when fired into a crowd. The chain from the target hit after the Punch Through can deal damage to the first target, and vice versa.
  • As with all Kuva and Tenet weapons, the player does not have to meet the Mastery Rank displayed to obtain this weapon. It can simply be claimed from the foundry after the Kuva Lich or Sister carrying it has been vanquished.
  • The weapon will have a prefix of the name of the Lich/Sister it was acquired from (e.g. Odizrigg Agekk Kuva Kohm).
  • The weapon's max rank caps at 40 after 5 polarizations (max rank increases by 2 per Forma added).
    • Additional polarizations can be added when the weapon reaches its new max rank at that polarization level.
    • Each additional rank also gives 100 Mastery Rank experience, giving 4,000 points in total at level 40.
    • Mod capacity scales with the additional ranks, and can reach a total of 80 at rank 40 with an Orokin Catalyst installed.
      • Without an Orokin Catalyst, the max is 40. Combined with the five polarized mod slots required to reach that point, an Orokin Catalyst might not be required to finish modding the weapon.
      • After polarizing a weapon, any additional mod capacity above 30 (60 with an Orokin Catalyst) will not take effect until the weapon's rank reaches 31 and above.
        • Legendary Mastery Rank increases the minimum mod capacity for such weapons, without the weapon needing to be rank 31 and above. For example, Legendary 1 increases the minimum capacity to 31 (62 with an Orokin Catalyst).
  • Comes with an additional damage stat, dependent on the Warframe that summoned the Lich/Sister.
    • This damage stat ranges between 25%-60%, and is randomly generated by the Lich/Sister. It can be brought up to its maximum value with Valence Fusion using another copy of the weapon.
    • This bonus stat is considered a base damage type that is added after all elemental mods.
