Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As a Signature Weapon, Tenora Prime gains a bonus effect with OctaviaIcon272.png Octavia or OctaviaPrime.png Octavia Prime, where headshot kills with the Alternate Fire have a 20% chance to instantly refill magazine.
    • The refilled ammo is automatically deducted from ammo reserves, and does not generate ammo.
    • No weak spots other than actual heads will trigger this effect.
  • Tenora Prime's charge shot deals 28 damage for every 1 ammo consumed (a total of 280 damage with max consumption of 10 ammo) per shot. This is of equal ammo efficiency to its primary fire.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Heavy 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 in the primary category and shared only with AksomatiPrime.png Aksomati Prime.
