Cernos is a Tenno bow, specializing in damaging shields by specializing in damage. Much like other bows, it functions with a charge mechanic, and sports very high accuracy at range, despite the arrow drop. It is most effective against the Corpus as it can easily break through their shields, but is less effective against the Grineer and Infested, due to a lack of other damage types.

Weapon Loadouts Edit
Due to the weapon's high damage but low Impact and Puncture damage, consider using this to drain the enemies' shield first then finish them with other weapons which have higher damage where the Cernos lacks. Alternatively, consider making this your main bow for going against Corpus troops, the majority of which have high shields but very low health.
Slash With a maxed Point Strike and Critical Delay mods, it is possible to raise the Cernos' critical chance to 104.3%, ensuring that all shots will deal critical damage.
Using a maxed Critical Delay however will also result in the Cernos having an even slower fire rate. This can be countered with the usage of a fire rate mod, preferably Speed Trigger.
The name "Cernos" means "horn" in Gaulish.
Being an Impact oriented bow, the Cernos uses arrows with a mace-like head, with a larger impact area. This spreads the kinetic energy of the arrows across a wider area, creating a blunt impact.
