Proboscis Cernos’ Attributes

The Proboscis Cernos fires arrows that, upon colliding with a surface or enemy, burst into long tendrils that seek out nearby enemies and draws them into the arrow’s explosion. The arrows deal a high amount of slash and impact damage, making them effective against health and shields.

When the tendrils are pulling in enemies, they deal slash and viral damage over time, and the final arrow explosion deals a high amount of viral damage. The arrows are very effective against flesh-type enemies, namely the Corpus enemies.

The Proboscis Cernos has very high status chance, but similarly to its predecessor, it has very low critical chance. Much like the majority of bows, the Proboscis Cernos also deals low puncture damage, rendering it ineffective against armor.

The Proboscis Cernos pairs well with abilities that require enemies to be in a small area of effect. The weapon is also a good fit for Spectres because of the pulling ability. This bow can work in a variety of builds, so try it with your favorite Warframes.
