About[edit | edit source]

The Subata 120 is the default secondary weapon used by the Driller. It is a typical semi-automatic handgun with what appears to be a wooden grip, loaded with an oversized magazine.

A simple and uncomplicated weapon, the Subata remains reliable in almost every situation. Despite its tiny size the gun can deal some serious damage when aiming for weak points on enemies due to its built-in Weakpoint Damage Bonus (which can be further improved with mods). It has a surprisingly long range for a handgun too, though without mods the recoil can be problematic.

Its main purpose is to aid the Driller in dealing with foes who stay outside the range of his primary weapons - particularly Mactera aliens who can easily fly out of the range of the streams. Mactera Spawns have huge, obvious weak spots which only become larger when they are preparing attacks, meaning that killing them with the Subata is easy – just point, shoot and that's one more dead alien to line the walls of Hoxxes.

Although the weapon is generally flawless, it doesn't have many specialties since its function is so basic. This is far from a bad thing as it makes the Subata a very reliable backup weapon, particularly with its generous amount of reserve ammo. That said the Driller's EPC can potentially provide some more interesting functionality to those looking for a more adventurous weapon. For everyone else, the Subata is plenty useful.

Stats Breakdown[edit | edit source]

Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]

Volatile Bullets[edit | edit source]

Icon Upgrade Heat.png

Volatile Bullets causes each bullet fired out of the Subata, onto burning targets, to deal +50% more damage. Burning can be applied to targets from the CRSPR Flamethrower or other weapons capable of burning. The Flamethrower allows the Driller to have a synergistic pairing of weapons when taking this mod. Since it adds fire damage it’s very effective against Mactera Spawn and Spitball Infector.

  • Damage: 50% of the damage caused by bullet fired (all modifier included)
  • Damage type: Fire
  • Affected by: Fire resistance

Unique Overclocks[edit | edit source]

Chain Hit[edit | edit source]

Frame Overclock Clean.png
Icon Upgrade Ricoshet.png


Chain Hit is a Clean Overclock
Whenever a bullet hits the weakpoint of a creature, it has a 50% chance to ricochet, up to 10 meters, to the closest creature (non hostile creatures are ignored, excluding Huuli Hoarders). Bullets do full damage before a ricochet.

Explosive Reload[edit | edit source]

Frame Overclock Unstable.png
Icon Overclock Special Magazine.png


When reloading each bullet fired that hit an enemy will explode. Several enemies can be affected at the same time. The explosion does not have any AoE to it, only affecting the creature it explodes in.

  • Damage: 15 per bullet that hit the target
  • Damage type: Explosive
