Wield two Cestras to unleash a dual torrent of high energy bolts.

The Dual Cestra is the dual-wield variant of the Cestra, a rapid-fire Corpus sidearm. Compared to its single-handed counterpart, the Dual Cestra sports even faster fire rate and a larger magazine size and ammo capacity, at the expense of slower reload speed and lower accuracy.

It can be sold for Credits645000.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Mastery 4 is not needed to build the Dual Cestras but is needed to build the single Cestras.


  • Due to the high recoil of this weapon, Steady Hands is recommended for better accuracy.


  • The Cestras' barrels rotate slowly clockwise when not in use and spin faster as they are fired.
  • Released February 5, 2014 in Update 12.0.
  • Color of projectiles is colored by the weapon's energy color.
  • This is the first akimbo-type weaponry that has a spin-up feature.
  • This is also the first dual-wield Corpus sidearm.


  • Continuing to hold down the fire button while the Dual Cestra has no ammo in its magazine will not trigger the reload animation. Instead the two will intertwine while the reload icon is being displayed.
  • Currently the Dual Cestra and its counterparts (Cestra and Secura Dual Cestra) cannot increase the damage of Antimatter Drop.
