Hurl mayhem and destruction with this Grineer grenade launcher.
The Tonkor is a Grineer grenade launcher which fires concussion explosives that can launch its owner airborne. Compared to the Penta, the Tonkor has slightly less explosion damage and magazine size, but boasts a higher fire rate, faster reload, and good critical potential.
The Tonkor's grenades will explode immediately upon hitting a player or enemy.
The grenades will also explode upon touching the Cryopod in a Defense mission, damaging nearby enemies. Note that the Cryopod will also take fifty damage upon doing so, similar to when using the grenades to jump.
If the grenade fails to hit a player or enemy, it will bounce several times off any hard surfaces and environmental objects before detonating five seconds after it settles on the ground.
The Tonkor will only hit an enemy with a direct hit if it hits the player model. This can result in the grenades bouncing between enemy legs.
It is possible to achieve red critical hits with Point Strike and Critical Delay, landing a 104.3% critical chance. This can be further increased using the Arcane Avenger enhancement, reaching a 134.3% total critical chance.
Explosions from the Tonkor grenades, as with all other explosive weapons, almost always cause headshots. Since Tonkor has the highest critical hit chance among explosives, this mechanic further increases the Tonkor's effective DPS more than it does for any other explosive weapon since critical headshots deal vastly more damage than critical bodyshots.
The Tonkor's grenades can propel the player a fair distance while jumping and hitting a grenade underneath the player's feet, thus increasing the speed at which the player is propelled with.
Unlike other explosive weapons like the Penta and Ogris, the Tonkor's explosion damage deals only a small, fixed amount of damage against the player, making it safer to use in close-quarters than the aforementioned counterparts. This also facilitates its use as a mobility tool as noted above.
When aiming down using zoom (default RMB), the Tonkor will display a flashing dotted line that shows the approximate trajectory the grenade will follow when fired. This line will only display the grenade's initial flight path and not any subsequent bounces.
Falling faster than the Tonkor's grenades' speed upon firing will allow the player to jump in midair.
Grenades will come to a complete stop when coming in contact with a body of water. This can turn them into makeshift proximity mines which will only explode when touched or after a few seconds.
Grenades created by Mirage's clones from Hall of Mirrors that are left over after the ability deactivates will cause damage to user if caught in the blast.
Grenades launched by the Tonkor have enough momentum to travel up to 25M after that the user must adjust the angle of aim significantly however this can be offset with the use of Terminal Velocity.
Terminal Velocity will help increase its projectile speed. Trajectory guide when zoomed will adjust with increased flight speed.
Jet Stream with high Power Strength allows for the projectiles to explode on first ground contact. Along with a maxed Terminal Velocity and maxed Jet Stream, a minimum of 175% power strength is required to have this effect.
Without using Terminal Velocity, minimum Power Strength needed is somewhere between 234% and 236%, when using Jet Stream.
The Tonkor's self-damage property can be used to increase Vex Armor's buffs when using Chroma.
It is advised to not use punch-through, as it can cause the Tonkor's projectiles to hit enemies without exploding. It also causes the projectiles to bounce/penetrate surfaces unpredictably.
Grenades will immediately explode when impacting the following surfaces, allowing instant high damage to enemies:
The Tonkor's breech-loading design is derived from the M79 grenade launcher, albeit with the ability to hold two rounds instead of one.
Oddly, the Tonkor's reload animation appears to consist of loading one grenade instead of two.
It seems that these "grenades" are actually power cells with a built-in launching mechanism.
Previously, the Tonkor was able to launch teammates into the air, and could even move them around while they were channeling stasis-related abilities (Mesa's Peacemaker, Nyx's Absorb, etc.). This was removed to discourage griefing and exploits.
