CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals Magnetic b Magnetic damage.

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

  • Innate Magnetic b Magnetic damage – less effective against Alloy Armor.
  • Slow Fire Rate.
  • Projectiles have travel time.
  • Shots that are not fully charged will always deal the same damage no matter how close to being fully charged.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The Velocitus is the first Archwing weapon whose blueprint is acquired from Clan Research (Tenno Laboratory).
  • Can be fired instantly without charging, though it will deal less damage.
  • Despite operating like a long range rifle, the Velocitus has no scope or magnification. Combined with projectile travel time, this makes sniping difficult.

TipsEdit

  • As the Velocitus already deals Magnetic b Magnetic innately, it can accept other combination elemental damage types that use Electricity b Electric damage as a base. In particular, adding Radiation b Radiation damage makes the Velocitus highly effective against Corpus spacecraft like the Gox that use both Shields and Robotic armor.
  • When strafing fast moving targets, the Velocitus can be fired rapidly akin to a semi-automatic weapon like the Latron. While the resulting shots are less powerful than fully-charged shots, the larger number of shots fired are much better at hitting moving targets.
    • Giving the fire key (default LMB ) a secondary binding to the scrollwheel can allow for much faster rates of fire when shooting rapidly.

TriviaEdit

  • The Velocitus is the first weapon that deals Magnetic b Magnetic as its base damage type.
  • The Velocitus' name is derived from the word "Velocity". Velocity is the name for the vector: ds/dt, that is the change in position (ds) over the change in time (dt).
  • When charging the weapon, five hatches emitting flames on the right side of the weapon open up sequentially until the last one is open, denoting a full charge. These hatches close when the weapon is fired.

MediaEdit

  • The Velocitus railgun.
