  • Fast reload speed relative to magazine size.

Disadvantages:

  • No Slash b Slash damage – less effective against health.
  • Short wind-up time in which the Cestra fires slowly, similar to the Supra.
  • Projectiles have travel time, between the Dera and the Supra.

  • Low status chance.
  • Low critical chance. 

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

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-.

    • I'm just wondering why the Cestra is in the market but if you want 2 you need a dojo research for it... game logic? :P
    • Dual Cestra was probably released on a later date than the single one. Since it is somehow of an advanced version and a corpus weapon it´s...
  • Does the Cestra have a short "spin up" time? Are we being subjective by call it "short"?

    • http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Cestra After experiencing the default Cestra and comparing it to other spin up weapons, I really have to won...
    • 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...
