Riven-free, Anti-Eidolon, 4 Forma Rubico

What is Rubico Prime?

Rubico Prime is currently the best sniper rifle in the game, boasting incredible Critical stats and Damage while still having good firing rate, status and more than 2 shots in the magazine.

Mod Explanation

Split Chamber: Staple in any primary, no explanation needed, huge damage boost.

Serration: Also a must-include mod, with one exception - Chroma. Otherwise not using this mod is like cutting your arm off. No explanation needed.

Point Strike + Vital Sense: Rubico Prime is a Crit weapon, and these are crit mods. And since we won't be doing much headshotting and killing anything other than eidolons (ideally) with this, we don't have other alternatives.

Stormbringer + Hellfire: Elemental mods, The two together give you a x2.8 damage multiplier (essentially) and make that damage Radiation. Radiation has a huge damage multiplier against alloy armor. Eidolons have Alloy armor. 2+2=4 and the Eidolon is dead.

Heavy Caliber: Tons of Damage, This is basically an extra serration with a downside, mitigated by Rubico being a Sniper rifle.

Vigilante Armaments: While it stacks additively with Split Chamber, this is still a good mod, as it increases your damage multiplicatively with serration and elemental mods. It's not a huge boost, but it does end up being a chunk. Best 8th mod available IMO.

Alternatives

Serration: If you're using chroma you may want to consider replacing this with an elemental mod, due to serration stacking additively with Vex Armor, Primed Cryo Rounds or Wildfire would be my recommendations

Heavy Caliber: If you're getting rid of serration and still have this mod in, just use serration instead of this. Otherwise, consider replacing this with more elemental damage mods like Primed Cryo Rounds, Wildfire or High Voltage.

NOTE Replace Heavy Caliber if you're using Rubico prime outside of eidolons

Vigilante Armaments: If you're open to changing your playstyle up... A LOT, consider replacing this with Proton Jet. I know, sounds janky AF, but it CAN work.

Exilus Slot

Personally I chose Twitch Because when hunting eidolons I prefer to play as Trinity and I take shooting down the acid orb things as my responsibility, Twitch helps me to switch to my secondary and take down the orbs faster.
Another good choice is Stabilizer as it can improve your practical DPS by making you feel more comfortable at shooting faster and makes recoil control easier.

On the Forma/mod rank note: I wouldn't bother formaing for such a minor upgrade, thus my Twitch is Rank 1, but if you want to use Stabilizer or don't have anything better to do, you won't regret putting another forma in.
