Compact and deadly, the Cestra discharges bolts of energy at an increasingly rapid rate.

The Cestra is a Corpus-built Sidearm added in Update 11.0. In essence, It is a scaled-down version of the Supra, where it has a brief spooling period before reaching its maximum fire rate.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 5,000; it is also a requisite ingredient for Dual Cestra (x2).

NotesEdit

  • Despite the high rate of fire, there is a significant and mandatory pause between releasing the fire button and being able to fire again, limiting the Cestra's ability to fire single shots or short bursts. 

TipsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The Cestra's barrel rotates slowly clockwise when not in use, and spins faster as it is fired.
  • The reload animation consists of the player pulling out the barrel, flipping it and reinserting it back into the Cestra, oddly making the revolving barrel the magazine itself.
    • This may suggest that the cylinder may be composed of two separate batteries; one used to fire plasma shots while the other is collecting energy from ammunition reserve of the user.
  • The Cestra's may be a numeral-derived name, just like other Corpus-designed weapons released around the time: the Tetra, which has a barrel with four blocks attached and a "quad-chambered magazine"; and the Penta, which has a five-grenade magazine. Cestra may be a corruption of Sexa-/Sext-, from sixth, and has a rotating section with six blocks.
    • While Tetra- and Penta- are Greek numeral prefixes, Sexa-/Sext- is a Latin numeral prefix. The appropriate Greek prefix would be Hexa-.

    • Actually the Cestra has really good damage for a secondary. The fire rate is also really good and don't forget the 60 rounds magazine...
