  • Argon Scope will trigger upon headshots, i.e. any weapon hit to an enemy's head, whether the target survives or not.
    • Headshots will refresh Argon Scope's timer.
    • The headshot that first triggers the effect will have its critical chance applied before the damage is calculated for that projectile.
  • If activated, Argon Scope will display an icon timer beside the player's health UI, and the Warframe will be briefly surrounded by a flashing energy ribbon.
  • Can be installed alongside Point Strike and Critical Delay in order to further increase the critical chance.


  • Rank 4 has a few unnecessary decimals.
