  • The Vulcanus Parts System is applied for the scope and does not require any conditions, it will automatically activate itself when using the scope.
  • It takes 3 seconds to lock-on a target. After that, the Vulcanus Parts System allows players to land hits on any part of the target's body with 100% accuracy for the time being. However, it is effective up to a maximum distance of 25 meters, and can lock-on one target only at a time. Also, if the target moves out of the scope view, it will be deactivated.
  • When the target is locked-on, the scope will change from blue to orange with beeping sounds.
  • One little note that the scope can indicate the range of the target.
  • The Vulcanus Parts System will deactivate automatically if the player:
    • Reloads the gun.
    • Drops the gun.
    • Aims intentionally/unintentionally away from the previous target.
    • Another target or a teammate passes through the scope while being locked-on the current target.
  • Rate of fire, recoil and the damage increases when shooting when in the scope. The operator will keep missing the target most of the time due to the recoil, if fired continuously.
Zombie Scenario
  • When shooting a boss with B mode, it will lock-on the weakness spots of the boss.
  • The weapon can deal up to 50,000 damage to the bosses, provided that attack power has been maxed, and the target is locked-on.
  • Using the re-buy tactic is essential to deal a huge amount of damage. However, it depends on the user's skill to watch his/her surroundings and to control the spray.
  • VULCANUS-5 is very effective to detect and defeat Jokers, even when they are invisible.

Shoot sound


  • This is the third weapon in Counter-Strike Online to feature lock-on target function after Thunderbolt and Lightning Rail.
  • This is the first weapon in Counter-Strike Online that can indicate the range of the target.
  • The weapon model resembles the XM25 CDTE.
    • However, the performance of the weapon is not the same as the original. XM25 CDTE is a 4-round smart grenade launcher but VULCANUS-5 is just a smart assault rifle.
  • The stats are nearly similar to TAR-21, while the reload animation is similar to F2000.
  • There is "Hephaestus Rome" written on the weapon body. It may refer to Hephaestus, Greek god of blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans, sculptors, metals, metallurgy, fire and volcanoes.
  • Unlike other weapons, VULCANUS-5 does not have world and player models, but only have view and shop models.
  • During its debut in Taiwan/Hong Kong region, its shop icon was misplaced with VULCANUS-7's instead even though the label describes the opposite.
  • Interestingly, this weapon also locks-on Mosquitoes and Stingray Kites.
