Forged by a master gunsmith, this Tenno burst rifle will strike down targets with swift precision.

The Tiberon is a Tenno-made three round burst-fire rifle. Compared to most burst-fire rifles, the Tiberon is much more accurate and primarily deals DmgPunctureSmall64.pngPuncture damage, albeit at the cost of reduced status chance.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.pngPuncture damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Low DmgImpactSmall64.pngImpact and DmgSlashSmall64.pngSlash damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Linearly less efficient – sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.
  • Relatively low magazine capacity.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like the Sybaris, the Tiberon's burst has a very tight shot grouping, which combined with its high base accuracy and negligible recoil makes it better at long-range shooting than other burst-fire weapons, such as the Burston.pngBurston or Hind.pngHind.
  • The Tiberon is a very strong candidate for a tenno Specter to use thanks to its high damage per second combined with high accuracy.
  • Has a higher damage per bullet than other low-tier burst fire weapons, like Burston or Hind.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon's name may be derived from tiburón, the Spanish word for shark. Its design also appears to take cues from the animal, particularly the "blades" beneath the muzzle which resemble a shark's pectoral fins.
  • The Tiberon is the first weapon outside of Clan Research that requires a Forma to construct.
  • At the time of its release, the DELatronPrime.pngLatron Prime or the WraithLatron.pngLatron Wraith could also be used to build the Tiberon. This was fixed in Hotfix 14.9.1.
  • Intriguingly, crafting the Tiberon requires the Latron, a semi-automatic rifle, instead of another burst-fire rifle, such as the Burston. The discrepancy can also be explained by the fact that Tiberon sports 3 separate barrels, with presumably one shot being fired from each, thus each barrel technically is its own semi-automatic weapon.
  • The Tiberon is reloaded by removing the magazine which is located at the butt end of the stock.
