A Bolto equipped in each hand. Twice the clip size and fire rate, but reload time is doubled and accuracy is lowered.

  • The bolts pins targets to the walls upon death.
  • Bolts can puncture through containers.


  • Since this weapon deals mostly DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage, it is effective against armored enemies, like the Grineer and most Corrupted.
  • For effective use of non-hitscan weapons, it is strongly recommended to learn to lead the target. In short, leading means aiming ahead of your enemy so the projectile still hits them.
  • Moderate recoil makes fast subsequent shots more difficult to land when fire rate mods are used.
  • Using the Mod TT 20px.png Pistol Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed.
  • With decently leveled Mod TT 20px.png Magnum Force and fully leveled Multishot mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Barrel Diffusion and Mod TT 20px.png Lethal Torrent these pistols visibly fire 2-3 bolts per shot. When used over a longer range this results in the Akbolto having the effective use of "spray and pray" weapons whilst retaining respectable damage out-put and ammo economy.
  • The bolts spawn as physical objects at the muzzle of the Akbolto.
    • If an enemy is standing right in front of you so that the muzzle is inside of it, you will sometimes not be able to hit, because the Akbolto is non-hitscan and pretty long, so the bolts spawn behind the hitbox of that enemy.
    • Also, if taking cover behind a thick object (i.e. door case) you will not be able to shoot anything but the wall in front you if the muzzle is inside of that object.
  • The innate Vazarin Pol.svg polarity can somewhat limit elemental modding potential, thus making it a less desirable polarity for elemental modding. If you wish to focus more on elemental damage, then it is recommended to either ignore the polarity or use Forma to turn it into a more suitable polarity.
  • PC users may properly utilize Akbolto's double fire rate if weapon fire is bound to downward mouse scrolling (set it as an alternate bind to still allow fire with mouse button). However, the wheel must be scrolled at just the right speed to avoid oversampling (attempting to fire the weapon when it's not ready, causing an effectively slower fire). This allows the weapon to be fired in rapid bursts.
