Built by the Grineer for their elite troops, the Vulkar is a devastating distance weapon. In the right hands it is capable of taking down targets long before they get into attack range.
The Vulkar is a Grineer sniper rifle, released in Update 8. It is equipped by Grineer Ballistas. It mainly utilizes Impact damage and shares the highest status chance of sniper rifles with the Lanka, making a good amount of the shots to deal devastating procs.
It can be closely compared to the Vectis, a tenno sniper rifle.
See the user build section for builds using this weapon.
Use a close-mid ranged sidearm to compensate for closer ranged targets.
Try to aim for the head or other vulnerable points only, take your time. Spraying and praying with this weapon does not work well, as with all snipers.
Adding either a rank 2 Wildfire or a rank 2 Magazine Warp will give you 1 extra bullet. It's possible to have 2 extra bullets with a combination of Magazine Warp and Wildfire, however the sum of the effects of the mods must be 40% or greater, since the game sums the values before rounding them up.
