Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Sancti Tigris has an innate Purity effect identical to that found in New Loka Weapon Augment Mods. Upon accumulating sufficient affinity, the Sancti Tigris will release an AoE radial blast that deals Corrosive b Corrosive damage, restores 25% of the Warframe's maximum Health, and temporarily buffs maximum Health by 25% of base Health for 30 seconds.
  • The listed Status Chance is the base chance per shot that at least one pellet will proc a status. The actual base Status Chance per pellet is ~4.68%.


  • The Sancti Tigris has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash b Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Sancti Tigris a prime candidate for a Desecrating Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.
  • While the Sancti Tigris is less effective against targets vulnerable to Puncture b Puncture and Impact b Impact damage types, it still deals an obscene amount of damage against targets with these resistances, dealing more damage than some weapon's primary damage types.
  • The innate Vazarin Pol polarity is a perfect match for Tainted Shell; this mod has a high capacity requirement but is very efficient on the Tigris as the duplex trigger practically nullifies the fire rate drawback.
    • The decrease in fire rate increases the delay before the Tigris automatically reloads after emptying it's magazine. This can be remedied by pressing the Reload button right after firing the second shot


  • The first part of its name, Sancti, is likely derived from the Latin word "sanctus", meaning holy. The Sanctus is also the name of a hymn in Catholic liturgy, or 'Hymn of Victory' in the Greek rendition.
