Captain Vor's prized Orokin-Grineer hybrid pistol has an average rate of fire but it has high damage and superior zoom capabilities.
The Seer is an accurate, heavy pistol of Grineer design utilizing Orokin technology, creating a unique hybrid weapon. It features innate magnification for aiming and a high damage per bullet but has a low muzzle velocity.
Use it for stationary mid-long range targets (or easy to track targets), the bullet travel time and the gun's slow fire rate makes it hard to use on moving targets and for some reason it misses extremely close targets.
When using multishot mods you can decrease the spread of the extra shot(s) by zooming in, or fire from the hip to increase the chance of headshots (as the multiple shots will spread out slightly)
The Seer has reasonably strong recoil when zoomed in. Consider using Steady Hands to make it more controllable; when maxed out, the Seer's recoil should be almost completely unnoticeable.
The Seer is one of three unique weapons that have a critical chance of 0%, making it incapable of dealing critical damage. As such, critical chance (ex. Pistol Gambit) and critical damage (ex. Target Cracker) mods have no effect on this weapon. The other such weapons with a 0% critical chance are the Miter and Panthera.
Though the shot explodes on impact, the effect is purely graphical. This weapon has no blast radius/area of effect.
Multishot can be observed with long range shots, but is not noticeable short-to-medium range.
The Seer's components used to have the same drop algorithm as the Cronus blueprint; every subsequent visit to Tolstoj used to decrease the drop rate. This has since been fixed.
The bulb on the right side of the weapon is the magazine. Prior to U12 the bulb on the right side of the weapon rotated when the gun was reloaded, and the Seer had the default sidearm reload animation.
This is the only hybrid weapon that combines Orokin design with another technological base, in this case Grineer technology.
Prior to U12 the energy color customization option had no effect on the color of the projectile's trail.
The slash damage is actually a tiny bit less than the other damages, shown when using a max damage and multishot build, the UI will show the slash damage to be 1 or more less than the others.
