A highly accurate and lethal pistol. The Carnifex is a favored sidearm of mercenary leaders and Eclipse mercenary tech specialists. An expensive but powerful weapon, its marketing materials feature a charging krogan with the slogan "Don't you wish Carnifex was at your side?"
The M-6 Carnifex is found during the mission Arrae: Ex-Cerberus Scientists, on a pipe in the tunnel immediately after leaving the scientists. (It is also purchasable from Kassa Fabrication post-mission if it was missed.)
Player Notes Edit
- With appropriate mods, the Carnifex can be utilized to fill the role of a long-range sniping weapon. The weapon's considerable damage, when coupled with a scope, can provide a lightweight solution to handling enemies at range. On Normal difficulty, the Carnifex is easily capable of dropping enemies with a few headshots.
- The Carnifex easily does more damage per shot than some semi-automatic sniper rifles such as the M-97 Viper and M-13 Raptor. Its lower weight makes it a good substitute for long-range fighting with classes that have low weight capacity bonuses.
