A gift from the Lotus to commemorate the third anniversary of the first Tenno waking from Cryo stasis.

The Dex Sybaris is a variant of the Sybaris burst-fire rifle released in commemoration of WARFRAME's 3rd Year Anniversary. It is made available to players during Warframe's yearly anniversary.

As an anniversary weapon, the Dex Sybaris comes with its own weapon slot and pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.


This weapon deals primarily Slash b Slash damage.

  • The Dex Sybaris comes with its own weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.
  • With a base critical chance of 35%, a fully-ranked Point Strike will increase the Dex Sybaris's critical hit chance to 87.5%. Thus, adding either Critical Delay, Argon Scope, or using Arcane Avenger will easily bring the critical hit chance above 100%.
    • With this in mind, Vital Sense, Bladed Rounds, and to a lesser extent Hammer Shot are highly recommended, generating massive damage, especially on enemies that can only be injured in vital spots.


  • The Dex Sybaris is the third Dex weapon released, after the Dex Furis and the Dex Dakra. It is also the first Dex primary weapon to be released.
  • The Dex Sybaris has three energy dots near the trigger which indicates that the weapon was released on the third anniversary. The same can be seen for the other Dex weapons: Dex Dakra has two dots, and Dex Furis has one.
  • Details on this weapon were leaked via the Warframe Nexus mobile app.
  • When firing the Dex Sybaris, the Lotus logo will appear as a muzzle flash, and its color can be customized via the Dex Sybaris's energy color.
  • The Dex Sybaris is one of the very few guns in-game with a visible full-length bore.
  • The Dex Sybaris was first released from March 22, 2016 to March 29, 2016 on PC, and from April 9, 2016 to April 15, 2016 for consoles. It was released again from March 24, 2017 to March 27, 2017.
