The Sicarus fires 3-round bursts, which provide a balance between the lethality of auto-pistols and the accuracy of semi-automatic pistols.

The Sicarus Prime is an improved Sicarus that sacrifices nearly half of its Impact b Impact damage to double Puncture b Puncture and Slash b Slash damage, and also sports higher accuracy, faster fire rate, and a larger magazine compared to its predecessor. This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍ 5,000.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact damage.

Advantages

  • Very little recoil for a burst weapon.
  • One Madurai Pol polarity slot.
  • Higher Puncture b Puncture and Slash b Slash damage make it more effective against Armor and Flesh than the Sicarus.

Disadvantages

  • Punishes missed shots due to burst-fire.
    • Third shot may miss targets without proper leading.
  • Linearly less efficient—sometimes a target may only die with four bullets, which requires an entire second burst to be fired.

Comparisons

  • Sicarus Prime compared to the Sicarus:
    • Higher base damage (32 vs 30)
      • Lower Impact b Impact damage (12.8 vs 21)
      • Higher Slash b Slash damage (9.6 vs 4.5)
      • Higher Puncture b Puncture damage (9.6 vs 4.5)
    • Higher Accuracy (25 vs 20)
    • Larger Magazine size (21 rounds vs 15 rounds)
    • Higher Rate of Fire (5 vs 3.5)
    • Higher Status Chance (10% vs 2.5%)
    • Lower Critical Multiplier (1.5x vs 2.0x)

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Due to its high accuracy, when combined with the Steady Hands mod this weapon becomes powerful at long range.
  • The lower Impact b Impact damage of Sicarus Prime makes individual shots mildly less effective against shields, but the improved fire rate and magazine size still make it a superior choice to the classic Sicarus.

TipsEdit

  • Though not necessary, one can install either a combination of a maxed Ice Storm and a level 2 Slip Magazine to fulfill a 30 magazine capacity or a single level 0 Slip Magazine to produce a 21 magazine capacity, in order to prevent the last burst to lack a single bullet. As of Update 15.16, the Sicarus Prime now has 21 rounds per magazine by default.

TriviaEdit

  • Added to the game in Update 11.
  • It could be seen in Ember Prime's right hand during the artwork show of Livestream 18.
  • The reload animation involves the front half of the barrel sliding forward, and the two side brackets opening outwards. A glowing capsule is then ejected and a new one is placed into the barrel before it is closed again.
  • The capsule's energy color is affected by energy color.
  • Compared to the normal Sicarus, the Sicarus Prime has a high pitch "whirring" sound at the end of its burst, suggesting the rounds to be energy based.
