The Hek is a powerful shotgun that fires its shots with a tight spread, making it efficient at medium range as long as its strong recoil is properly managed.

The Hek is a Grineer shotgun that deals very high damage, particularly known for its relatively narrow cone compared to other shotguns. Due to this relatively tight spread, the Hek is able to perform with greater success at close to middle ranges, regardless of pellet/ projectile falloff. However, the Hek does trade its raw power and relative focused fire for its small magazine size, and generally limited crowd-control ability.

This weapon can be sold for 7,500‍ Credits64.

This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.


  • High Puncture b Puncture damage – effective against armor.
    • Currently the only shotgun (along with the Vaykor variant) capable of using both modifiers of Accelerated Blast without waste as it is the only shotgun with Puncture b Puncture as a major damage type.
  • Narrowest pellet cone of all shotguns.
  • Inflicts the third highest damage per shot of all shotguns (Behind Drakgoon's charge attack and the Tigris).
  • Longest range of all hitscan shotguns.
  • Least damage falloff of all shotguns excluding the Drakgoon and Phage which have none. 
  • Second fastest reload speed of all shotguns.
  • Can equip the Hek-exclusive Scattered Justice mod.


  • Lower Impact b.svg Impact and Slash b.svg Slash damage – less effective against Shields and Flesh.
  • Small base magazine size.
  • May miss enemies at point-blank range due to the length of the barrels.
  • Tight pellet spread may make close-quarters combat difficult.
  • Damage drops off over distance, as with most shotguns.
  • High recoil.


  • Compared to the Vaykor Hek:
    • Lower Crit chance (10.0% vs. 25.0%).
    • Lower magazine size (4 vs. 8).
    • Lower Fire rate (2.17 vs. 3.00).
    • Faster reload speed (2.0 vs. 2.3).
    • No innate Justice effect.
    • Can use Hek-exclusive Scattered Justice mod, which the Vaykor cannot use.

Weapon Loadouts


  • The listed damage is the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 11.26 Impact b.svg Impact48.76 Puncture b Puncture and 15 Slash b.svg Slash.


  • Due to this gun's low magazine size, it is recommended that you focus on Rate of Fire or Reload Speed to increase overall DPS.
    • Accelerated Blast is particularly effective, given the Hek's high Puncture Damage.
  • Ammo Stock at Rank 3 (+40%) adds two into the magazine size (for a total of 6). There is no need to upgrade the mod further as no additional rounds will be gained.
    • A fully ranked Ammo Stock combined with a fully ranked Burdened Magazine will add 5 additional rounds to the magazine, giving it 9 rounds in total.
  • Using the Shotgun Ammo Mutation mod can help regain ammo when needed, although not as often as the full auto shotguns.
  • The weapon's spread cone can be shrunk by zooming in.
  • Equipping both Hell's Chamber and Scattered Justice will give the Hek 320% Multishot, giving it an impressive 29 pellets per shot with a 40% chance of firing a 30th pellet. This greatly improves the Hek's damage and status chance.


  • This weapon seems to be modeled on the main weapon of Councilor Vay Hek's Terra Frame, which fires rockets as opposed to shotgun shells. This has caused speculation as to whether the Councilor himself is merely the shotgun's namesake, or otherwise responsible for designing/commissioning it.

    Concept art for Vay Hek's Terra Frame, with the Hek-shaped cannon clearly in view.

    • Additionally, Vay Hek's only weapon was the Hek shotgun before his Update 13.0 rework.
    • Vem Tabook uses a modified Hek that fires electric shells.
  • The magazine for the Hek is the cylindrical 'handle' sticking out of the side of the bottom right barrel. This raises questions as to how the shells are actually loaded into each barrel.
    • It is possible that the barrel it is attached to is a tubular feeding system and not for firing, and that the other three barrels actually fire.
  • The Hek received a minor visual update in Update 13.4.1, which added weathering and other textures to the weapon to make it look more worn and aged, putting it in line with other Grineer weapons.
  • The Hek may have been based on a 1960s quad-barrel shotgun prototype.


  • Hek in Codex with Update 13.4.1 textures.
