A customized version of the Quanta, with metallic finish and Lotus decal.

The Quanta Vandal is the Vandal form of the Quanta mining laser cutter, offered as a reward for attaining a minimum of 1,500 points in the Operation False Profit event. It features a larger magazine size, higher status chance and increased secondary fire damage output over the original.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Electricity b Electricity damage.

Advantages

  • Excellent ammo efficiency on normal firing mode.
    • Beam can deal 4 ticks of damage per second when fired on enemies.
  • Good chance to proc per second.
  • Specializes in Electricity b Electricity damage, making it effective against Robotic and Machinery-enemies. Electricity is a versatile damage type, combining for Magnetic b Magnetic, Corrosive b Corrosive and Radiation b Radiation.
  • Secondary fire lobs a small Blast b Blast damage cube that explodes after a period of time or when hitting an enemy, with a high chance to proc.
    • Attacking the cube before it hits an enemy will prematurely detonate the cube, dealing twice as much damage.
    • Amount of cubes is limited only by ammunition.
    • Cubes can land reliable headshots by detonating them above targets.
  • Unlike most explosive weapons, Quanta Vandal does not damage the player.
  • Has a Madurai Pol polarity.
  • Longest reach of all range-limited weapons, 50m.

Disadvantages

  • Cannot hit enemies beyond 50 meters.
  • Cubes consume 10 rounds each and will not function with less than 10 rounds.
  • Cubes have slow travel time and will come to a complete stop roughly 15 meters from the firing position.
  • Frequently using the secondary fire will drain ammo quickly.

Comparisons

  • Compared to the Quanta:
    • Higher status chance / second (25.0% vs. 10.0%).
    • Larger Magazine (90 vs. 60).
    • Higher damage on secondary attack (250/500 vs. 200/400).
    • Replaces the Vazarin Pol polarity slot with a Madurai Pol polarity.

AcquisitionEdit

  • This weapon was originally obtained by gaining at least 1,500 points in the Operation False Profit event
  • The Quanta Vandal can be purchased from Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64‍ 300,000 and PrimeBucks‍450. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.
  • This weapon is now tradable as of Hotfix 18.8.1.

NotesEdit

  • The primary fire is a single Electricity b Electricity element which combines with other single element mods, and the secondary Blast b Blast does not. Quanta can carry a variety of elemental effects.
  • As with all Event weapons, the Quanta Vandal comes with its own weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst. When purchased from Baro Ki'Teer, however, the weapon comes with neither.
  • Heavy Caliber will not affect the accuracy of the primary fire as badly as it does on other continuous weapons, but multishot will affect the secondary fire by launching the cubes at noticeably different angles.
  • Terminal Velocity will increase the flight speed of the cube and the distance it travels before it comes to a complete stop.

TipsEdit

  • Cubes will immediately explode when impacting the following surfaces, allowing instant high damage to enemies:

TriviaEdit

  • As with most Vandal weapons, only the energy color can be changed. Other colors may be selected, but will not show on the weapon.
  • This is the sixth Vandal weapon to be released.
