A blood-red variant of this devastating sniper rifle.

The Vulkar Wraith is the Wraith variant of the Vulkar, featuring higher damage, fire rate, and magazine size.

This weapon can be sold for Credits647,500.

AcquisitionEdit

This weapon was first awarded from Operation: Shadow Debt to players who defeated the final challenger, complete with a free weapon slot and a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst.

The Vulkar Wraith is now potentially sold by Baro Ki'Teer in the Concourse section of the Tenno Relay for Credits64300,000 and PrimeBucks450. Note that Baro Ki'Teer's stock changes with each appearance, and this weapon may not be available on a succeeding appearance.

The weapon can be traded, but only for unranked copies without Forma and Orokin Catalyst installed. The trading recipient must also have a Mastery Rank of at least 7.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon deals primarily Impact b Impact damage.

Advantages:

  • Third highest damage of all sniper rifles behind Lanka and Vectis Prime, and second highest damage of all hit-scan sniper rifles behind Vectis Prime.
  • Tied with Lanka and Vulkar for second highest status chance of all sniper rifles, behind the Vectis and Vectis Prime.
  • High critical chance.
  • Second highest magazine size of all sniper rifles, behind Lanka.
  • Low recoil.
  • Pinpoint accuracy while aiming; shots will hit exactly on the reticle dot, perfect for headshots.
  • Staggers most enemies with every hit.
  • High zoom capabilities.
    • Zooming in increases headshot damage by +35% at 2.5x zoom, +55% at 4x zoom or +70% at 8x zoom.
    • Can use the Vulkar-exclusive Lasting Purity mod, significantly increasing its scoped-in damage.
  • Comes with a Madurai Pol polarity.

Disadvantages:

  • Low Puncture b Puncture and no Slash b Slash damage – less effective against Armor and health.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to ?% from 400m to 600m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Tied with normal Vulkar for the lowest critical chance of all sniper rifles.
  • Slow reload speed.
  • Draws from the rare sniper ammo pool.
  • Rifle scope is ineffective in dark areas and at close range.
  • Inaccurate when fired from the hip, bullets may widely spread when fired.
  • Purity effect from Lasting Purity causes a screen shake, disrupting aiming.

Comparisons:


  • Vulkar Wraith, compared to Vulkar:
    • Higher base damage (273.0 vs. 225.0)
      • Higher Impact b Impact damage (245.7 vs. 180.0)
      • Lower Puncture b Puncture damage (27.3 vs. 33.8)
    • Higher fire rate (2 rounds/sec vs. 1.5 rounds/sec)
