The uniquely styled Viper Wraith is a powerful variation on the standard machine-pistols.

The Viper Wraith is the Wraith version of the Viper.png Viper that has higher damage with a slight boost to DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage in exchange for lower DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, and higher critical chance, larger magazine size, and better accuracy, but with reduced status chance and reload speed.



  • High accuracy.
  • Tied with Viper.png Viper for highest fire rate of all single-handed pistols.
  • Normal Attack
    • High effective fire rate
    • High max ammo
    • High reload speed
    • High disposition


  • Inefficient ammo economy.
  • Normal Attack
    • Very low damage
    • Low status chance


  • Viper Wraith (Normal Attack), compared to Twin Vipers Wraith (Normal Attack):
    • Equal base damage, but different composition:
    • Lower burst DPS (308.01 vs. 535.5)
    • Lower sustained DPS (195.54 vs. 238)
    • Lower fire rate (14.38 vs. 25)
    • Smaller magazine (20 vs. 40)
    • Smaller max ammo capacity (420 vs. 440)
    • Faster reload time (0.8 vs. 2)
    • More accurate (28.6 vs. 11.1)
    • Lower Mastery Rank required (4 vs. 7)
    • Lower disposition (●●●●● (1.40x) vs. ●●●●● (1.41x))


The Viper Wraith can be potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64.png 75,000 and PrimeBucks.png 400. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The weapon can be traded, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 4.


  • This is the first single-handed weapon that was added after its dual-wielding counterpart, TwinVipersWraith.png Twin Vipers Wraith.
