The Manticore is a versatile UncommonRarity.svgUncommon Assault Rifle created by Osiris logo colored.pngOsiris.


The Manticore can have 8 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have Assault Rifle or Medium Ammo as a category can be installed onto a Manticore.


A flechette assault rifle, it's heavy hitting but less accurate compared to other rifles.


Intended for use in pressurised environments, the Manticore was designed for more militaristic use than the compact ASP. Lightweight, accurate, and lethal, it's seen use by marines both performing as and defending against boarding parties.

The Mk.II version of the Manticore can only be found as loot on Fortuna III, which means it can't be crafted or bought in Prospect Station.
