Forged by a master gunsmith, this Tenno burst rifle will strike down targets with swift precision
The Tiberon is a Tenno-made three round burst-fire rifle introduced in update Update 14.9. Compared to most burst-fire rifles, the Tiberon is much more accurate and primarily deals Puncture damage, albeit at the cost of reduced status chance.
When compared to the Sybaris, it has a higher fire rate, a larger magazine size, and better accuracy. However, the weapon has little to go by in terms of critical chance and status chance, a property that the Sybaris excels in. The Tiberon is essentially an alternative to the Sybaris for dealing higher non-crit DPS.
Like the Sybaris, the Tiberon's burst has a very tight shot grouping, which combined with its high base accuracy and negligible recoil makes it better at long-range shooting than other burst-fire weapons, such as the Burston or Hind.
The Tiberon is a very strong candidate for Specter use thanks to its high base damage/second combined with high accuracy.
Has a higher damage per bullet than other low-tier burst fire weapons like Burston or the Hind.
The weapon's name may be derived from tiburón, the Spanish word for shark. Its design takes several cues from this animal, namely its dark-blue color and its blade-like under-barrel attachment, which resembles the pectoral fins of a shark.
Intriguingly, the Tiberon requires a Latron, a semi auto rifle, instead of another burst rifle, such as the Burston, though this could be explained by its similarity to the standard Latron in base color and finish. The discrepancy can also be explained by the fact that Tiberon sports 3 separate barrels, with presumably one shot being fired from each, thus each barrel technically is its own semi-automatic weapon.
The Tiberon is reloaded by removing the magazine which is located at the butt end of the stock.
