Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The Rubico has the highest critical damage multiplier of any sniper rifle, with a base multiplier of 3x.
    • On the other hand, it has a dismal status chance of 5%, being the lowest for all the sniper rifles. This is compared to the 20-30% of the other sniper rifles, a considerable difference.
  • It closely resembles the Grineer Vulkar in terms of damage type distribution and other stats; the main difference being the Rubico has higher critical stats, while having lower status, base damage, and magazine.
  • The Rubico requires only a single shot to activate its Shot Combo Counter, giving it an immediate 1.5x total damage multiplier on the first shot, and a 2.0x total damage multiplier after its third shot, giving it the ability to quickly ramp up its damage with a single magazine. On the other hand, it has a shot reset counter that lasts only 2.5 seconds, thus reloading will always reset its shot combo counter if there are no reload mods present.
    • With Harkonar Scope, it's possible to maintain the Rubico's combo through reloads, provided there is a target to hit within the allotted time.

TipsEdit

  • Due to its high critical chance and damage multiplier, it is recommended to use Point Strike (bringing the weapon's critical chance up to 62.5%) as well as Vital Sense, which increases its critical damage multiplier to 6.6x. Hammer Shot and Bladed Rounds can increase this even further; up to 8.4x and 12.0x respectively. Scoping in also boosts its critical damage by up to +50% at maximum zoom level.

TriviaEdit

  • Rubico is a clay made from crushed basalt that is used to build tennis courts, with its green color being similar to the color of this weapon.

Bugs Edit

  • It seems as though there is a chance for a bullet to not hit its mark, even when scoped in.

MediaEdit

  • Rubico in Codex.
  • Rubico's unique zoom HUD
