"It cannot be aimed, but its wide shape covers a large area."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Rising Specter (ライジングスペクター Raijingu Supekutā) is a Shoulder-type laser weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Sting Chameleon and Flame Mammoth in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped with this weapon, Vile fires a solid purple laser from his cannon that lasts for a few seconds, then dissipates. This always fires up at a diagonal -- it cannot be aimed like most other shoulder weapons in Vile's arsenal. Rising Specter uses a large amount of Weapon Energy, however the damage does not seem to be that great considering its limitations, although it is capable of inflicting multiple hits. As with the rest of Vile's other laser weapons, Rising Specter is capable of piercing enemy shields.

Rising Specter is Storm Eagle and Rangda Bangda's weakness. Mega Man X takes a large amount of damage from this weapon as well.

Defeating Sting Chameleon and Flame Mammoth will Vile not only be rewarded with Rising Specter, but he will also be rewarded with Green-Eyed Lamp as well.
