Top Rubico Prime Builds in Warframe

Rubico Prime is the Primed variant of Rubico, which is a revolver-styled sniper rifle that is known for the highest critical multiplier. This semi-auto sniper rifle primarily deals Impact damage that makes it better suited for the enemies having higher shields. Its high critical multiplier comes at the cost of its status chance which is the lowest at 12 % among all sniper rifles for Rubico and 16% for Rubico Prime.

Rubico Prime Builds Guide

Rubico Prime has some advantages over the base version in terms of even increased critical chance, slightly higher status chance, better fire rate, and reload speed. It is a noisy weapon, so it is not suited for stealth gameplay. The coolest part is that the combo counter starts just on the fire of 1 shot and produces 1.5x damage and 2x damage on the third shot. However, reloading resets the combo counter to 1.0x.

Advantages of Rubico Prime:

  • High impact damage
  • Highest base critical chance among sniper rifles
  • Fire speed is the second-fastest among sniper rifles
  • Lower recoil making it more accurate
  • Very high accuracy; best for headshots
  • Decent magazine size and good ammo economy

Disadvantages of Rubico Prime:

  • Less useful against armor and health
  • Lowest status chance among the sniper rifles
  • Very high linear falloff of ~ 50% between 400m – 600m
  • Short combo decay
  • Slow reload speed

The Standard Rubico Prime Build

a pretty excellent accuracy rate and fire rate. Along with this, there are various mods that can be used along with the weapon so that it would become more comfortable for you to kill the enemies in a single go. The Heavy Caliber provides you a great deal of damage, but it is somewhat low inaccuracy. Along with Heavy Caliber, you can use Vital Sense for good critical damage.

You can also try to explore the Hellfire mod to boost heat energy and Point strike for increased critical damage. The right set of mods, when combined, forms a vicious and deadly ability that is almost impossible to neglect.

The Impact Munitions Build
