Unload percussive machine gun fire, or strike a heavy chord with a single charge shot. This is Octavia's signature rifle.

The Tenora is OctaviaIcon272.png Octavia's signature assault rifle, which features two different firing modes: a standard full-auto fire mode that increases fire rate and accuracy the longer it shoots, and an Alternate Fire mode that fires a single powerful, charged shot. Has a chance to instantly refill magazine after a headshot charged shot kill while being used by Octavia.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Puncture b.svg Puncture damage.



  • Primary Fire:
    • Low base damage; very reliant on its critical multiplier potential.
      • Ill-suited against Object-based health as it nullifies any critical hits.
    • Requires a spool-up of 9 shots before optimal fire rate and accuracy are achieved.
  • Alternate Fire:
    • Low Impact b.svg Impact and Slash b.svg Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.
    • Uses 10 ammo per shot.
    • The weapon fires as soon as it has reached a full charge, which can lead to premature firing.
    • Low status chance.
  • Poor ammo efficiency.
  • Slow reload speed.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When used by OctaviaIcon272.png Octavia, headshot kills with the Alternate Fire have a 20% chance to instantly refill magazine.
    • No weak spots other than actual heads will trigger this effect.
  • Tenora's charge shot deals 24 damage for every 1 ammo consumed (a total of 240 damage with max consumption of 10 ammo) per shot. This is of equal ammo efficiency to its primary fire.
  • Mod TT 20px.pngHeavy Caliber's accuracy penalty will be very apparent even at full spool.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tenora is the Catalan word for Tenor, one of the highest classical male singing voices.
    • Tenora may also be a reference to a type of Catalan Shawm, an oboe-like woodwind instrument typically used in Catalonia.
  • While there are other weapons with spool-up time, like the U10DesignCouncilTennoAR.png Soma and Gorgon.png Gorgon series, its accuracy being increased the longer the trigger is held is currently unique to the Tenora.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Spent ammo cartridges will always use the default color scheme of the weapon.
  • Riven mods that increase recoil above 55% appear to drain 11 ammo instead of 10 on charged shots.
