Hybrid Build

Since making a pure critical build is not that viable due to the low critical chance, we have use part of the status build in order to make a hybrid build.

This build offers a high status chance and a good chance to deal damage and even score critical hits.

The elemental damage and status mods help with both damage and can help weaken enemies while the chance for a critical hit to occur adds a good chance to deal heavy damage.

(Hybrid Chance build damage)

The Cyngas can be modified in different ways but due to the lack of more mods for archguns, these builds work best and can be good starter builds for you.

The status build is probably one of the best builds for the Cyngas since it can rip through the Grineer numbers in a small amount of time.

Overview

When it comes to dealing damage in archwing mode or even using archguns in normal missions, the Cyngas does a good job.

The numbers it deals don’t appear to be so high at first but once you get a few hits in, the damage begins to show, especially with more status effects.

In Railjack missions, the status effects exceed that of normal missions ones due to the mechanics and this causes the Cyngas to deal severe damage against all enemies both fighters and crew ships alike.

Cyngas is considered one of the best status weapons among the archguns and is a great choice for those who are accurate and like a damage over time approach.
