The Tiberon Prime is the select-fire Prime version of the three round burst-fire rifle Tiberon, featuring overall higher stats. Unique to the weapon is its three firing modes that can be swapped through its Alternate Fire: balanced statistics on its three round burst-fire mode, higher critical chance and critical multiplier on semi-auto mode, and higher status chance on full-auto mode. It was released alongside Zephyr Prime and Kronen Prime.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
This weapon deals primarily Puncture damage by a small margin.
- Near-equal physical damage – effective against all factions, Sentient and Shadow Stalker.
- Three firing modes that can be cycled with Alternate Fire: 3-round burst, semi-auto, and full-auto.
- Burst-fire mode:
- Semi-auto mode:
- Very high critical chance.
- Highest critical multiplier of all primary weapons.
- Good status chance.
- Fastest fire rate of all semi-automatic rifles.

- Full-auto mode:

- Tied with Acceltra for the second highest critical multiplier of all fully automatic rifles, behind Soma/ Soma Prime, Attica, and Baza/ Baza Prime.
- Second highest status chance of all fully automatic rifles, behind Boltor Prime.
- High accuracy.
- Very low recoil, especially on Burst-fire and Semi-auto modes.

- This can also be mitigated by using quick melee with good timing, canceling the burst partway through.
