The Quatz is a new secondary weapon that has arrived in Warframe as part of the Tenno Reinforcements with update 25.4.0. Another dual fire mode weapon, you can fire fully auto from the hip, or switch to ADS to take advantage of its four-shot burst fire mode. The weapon also has a unique trait, reloading it when it is empty will cause it to discharge electrical energy into the surrounding area.
How To Get The Quatz
You can purchase the Blueprint for the Quatz from the Market for 40,000 Credits. Then, you build it in your Foundry using the below resources:
- 30,000 Credits
- 2 Argon Crystal (farmed in the Void)
- 5 Neurodes
- 4200 Rubedo
- 12,750 Salvage
- 24 hour build time
From a basic statistics point of view, Quatz doesn’t appear to be a bad weapon. I haven’t had the time to get it to a full build yet, but I am working on that at the moment. The Autofire mode has a very respectable base Status chance of 27%, and it spits bullets with an impressive fire rate. This means you can lean into a Status build if you plan on using it mostly in this mode and firing from the hip.
The Burst mode will offer and increase Critical hit chance, and critical damage multiplier, but will reduce the Status chance somewhat. Innate electrical damage also makes it very easy to mod this weapon for Corrosive damage, needing just a Toxin mod of your choice. Burst fire also has increased accuracy, making it easier to land those all-important headshots. The weapon also has decent hybrid build potential, if you want to buff both Status and Critical stats with the same build.
So, for now, it is not a terrible weapon by any means, but if you want to know how it holds up in endgame content, you will need to read my Build Guide when it arrives later today.
