# About The Tiberon And Its Status Chance...

## Recommended Posts

Some people say that the Tiberon is not a status chance weapon, even if maxing out its status chance. How about we take a look at that?

To have maximum status chance, we will need:

- Maximum Split Chamber (+90% Multishot).

- Maximum Hammer Shot (+40% Status Chance).

- Maximum Rifle Aptitude (+15% Status Chance).

- All the Status Chance Dual mods (+240% Status Chance).

So, that means we can increase the Tiberon's base status chance to:

2.5% * (1 + 2.4 + 0.4 + 0.15) = 9.875%.

And so, the status probability of a Tiberon will be:

P(Status effect) = 0.1 * (Σ[r = 1, up to 3](3Cr * (0.09875^r) * (0.90125^[3-r])) + 0.9 * (Σ[r = 1, up to 6](6Cr * (0.09875^r) *  (0.90125^[6-r]))

Using GDC,

P(Status effect) = 0.4445 = 44.45%

So yes. A Tiberon can be a good status weapon. That should put everyone who says, "The Tiberon is not a status weapon!" in his/her place.

No one is willing to invest 7 slots simply to make the weapon do good status when there are better alternatives that do the same job for way less. =.=

Well.. it still isn't.

A status based weapon has a status of 70+% per bullet. 44.45% per shot (2 bullets), is a terrible status chance (thats 22% per bullet)

A weapon that's base status is lower than 20% cannot make a reliable status based weapon.

The most efficient way to build it is still raw damage. To bring out the best in a weapon we have to exploit its best traits and build around them. From this we can say that Tiberon can be built as a status weapon, but it is not the most efficient way to build it.

...well, then others can do much much better using the same  build

Tiberon is not for status. status can be helpful, but there is situation pure dps build is good enough.

If you have to stack every single status mod in order to get just 44%, that is not a "good status weapon".

You've burned several forma on a mediocre status weapon. Just build the TIberon for raw damage -- not everything is going to be a crit or status weapon.

Absolutely correct. If you have to invest that much to make it have a decent chance you're dulling your dps way down.

So we can give it a 44% status chance.

By using every single mod slot to make it happen.....

Meanwhile the new guy with the MK-1 Braton is laughing at how bad your damage is.

Yet to bump into anyone with a forma'd MK-1 but I have met a few with the standard Braton bumped with a few forma.
