Designed as the perfect mate for Nautilus, this Sentinel weapon projects an icy beam at nearby targets.

The Verglas is the default weapon for the EmpyreanSentinel.png Nautilus Sentinel that fires a continuous beam of DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage. This weapon accepts rifle mods.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 1,250.


This weapon deals DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage.



  • Innate DmgColdSmall64.png Cold damage – less effective against Infested Flesh and Fossilized.
  • Very low critical chance.
  • Damage ramps up from 20% to 100% over 0.6 seconds when firing. After firing stops for 0.8 seconds, the damage decays back to 20% over 2 seconds.
  • Fairly low reload speed.
  • Limited range of 24 meters.


This sentinel weapon is automatically acquired by acquiring EmpyreanSentinel.png Nautilus. Note that this weapon also takes up one Sentinel inventory slot.


  • Verglas has abnormally high damage-dealing potential for a sentinel weapon.
    • Since Verglas' stats are identical to Glaxion.png Glaxion it has vastly greater power than other sentinel weapons, in particular completely outclassing its Cold-damage sentinel weapon beam predecessors: Cryotra.png Cryotra and Artax.png Artax.
  • Verglas benefits exceptionally well from Mod TT 20px.png Fired Up as long as at least one of the DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage mods - Mod TT 20px.png Hellfire, Mod TT 20px.png Thermite Rounds, and Mod TT 20px.png Wildfire - is equipped.
    • Since Verglas is a beam weapon with such high status chance, it can rapidly proc DmgFireSmall64.png Heat causing large amounts of damage over time as well as reducing the enemies armor by up to 50%.
    • The multiplicative nature of Mod TT 20px.png Fired Up can increase the damage of the Verglas substantially.
      • If trying to utilize Mod TT 20px.png Fired Up, it is best to use all three DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage mods for maximum bonus DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage.
      • The total DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage of Mod TT 20px.png Fired Up is shown by default, with the mod equipped, in the Verglas modding window. However, the total damage can still be calculated by multiplying the total DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage on the Verglas by 1.6 (Overheat damage bonus is 60%).
        • Example with only Mod TT 20px.png Hellfire and Mod TT 20px.png Thermite Rounds equipped:
          • Heat damage from heat mods: 26 × (0.9 + 0.6) = DmgFireSmall64.png 39
          • Total heat damage after Fired Up: 26 × (0.9 + 0.6) × (1 + 0.6) = DmgFireSmall64.png 62.4


  • Verglas does not currently benefit from Mod TT 20px.png Sinister Reach despite being able to equip it.


  • Verglas is a thin layer of ice, originating from the French word Verglas which means black ice i.e. clear ice.
  • Upon release, Verglas Riven Mods were unveiled from Rifle Rivens as opposed to Companion Weapon Rivens; this was soon patched.
