Add lethal staccato percussion to Octavia's melodies with this masterpiece assault rifle.

Tenora Prime is the Primed variant of the TnBardRifle.pngTenora assault rifle, sporting higher damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, status chance, and magazine size, and faster reload speed. Tenora Prime was released alongside OctaviaPrime.pngOctavia Prime and PanderoPrime-Arsenal.webpPandero Prime.


This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.pngPuncture 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 DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact and DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash 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.
  • Poor ammo efficiency.

  • When used by OctaviaIcon272.pngOctavia, 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.


  • 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.pngSoma and Gorgon.pngGorgon 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.pngAksomati Prime.
