Notes[]

Tips[]

  • Final Harbinger12?cb=20190608095452 Final Harbinger can offset the Ack & Brunt's low attack speed with its quick combos.
  • Using the Ack & Brunt with Final Harbinger12?cb=20190608095452 Final Harbinger, Blood Rush12?cb=20190608095452 Blood Rush and/or Gladiator Mods allows players to quickly gather hits for the Combo Counter, rapidly boosting the Ack & Brunt's critical chance.
  • Absorbing enemy attacks allows players to almost double the amount of damage they can deal.
    • This is useful when focusing on taking down heavy units in a crowd.
    • Do note however that stacks are expended if an enemy melee attack is parried.
  • (Corrupted) Bombard rockets can add up to two stacks of elemental damage, allowing players to collect stacks faster.


Trivia[]

  • This is the weapon of choice for Tyl Regor following Update 17.0 (2015-07-31), though instead of holding the weapon, Tyl Regor is able to attach the axe and shield to the ends of his cybernetic limbs in place of his KnuxGrnArchHand.png Knux hands. Regor, however, explicitly refers to Ack as a gavel.
  • Tyl Regor uses a different design for the shield, as it is normally part of his helmet/headdress (or perhaps vice-versa). The Tenno version presumably adapts the shield to collapse so that it does not take up as much room when stowed.
  • The text on the inner part of the shield translates to "Meat Protector".
